About This Quiz

"Rooting for the Chicago Cubs is not easy, but the best things in life never are." - Dennis Farina

How big of a Chicago Cubs fan are you? Would you consider yourself an expert on the team and its history? Could you pass a quiz on the Chicago Cubs? Here's your chance to find out!

The Chicago Cubs ball club has been playing baseball since the late 1800s, which even predates Major League Baseball. The team has had some success over the years, but it's also had disappointing droughts that have left fans weary of supporting the team. After all, the team holds the record for failing to reach the NL pennant for 71 years and failing to reach the World Series for 108 years. That means that nearly two generations of Cubs fans weren't able to celebrate a championship in their city. At least they had Michael Jordan and the Bulls in Chicago. Otherwise, fans might have started rioting. 

If you think you know everything about the long history of the Chicago Cubs, then go ahead and give this quiz a try. There might be a few things in here that will surprise you. Get started and test your Cubs knowledge!
