Nothing warms our hearts more on a sunny Thursday afternoon than an email from our favorite university president, particularly an email with the sole purpose of telling us about the sad state of Tony Frankâ€™s favorite team: the Chicago Cubs.
In the email, he alluded to how many CSU students sent him victorious messages in light of the Rockiesâ€™ recent sweep over the Cubs. We donâ€™t have the free time to write emails, because weâ€™re too busy plotting to ruin peopleâ€™s lives. So weâ€™re just writing this Our View.
So thatâ€™s right Tony, the Cubs suck! They havenâ€™t won a World Series in 103 years,.By contrast the Rockies have only gone 18 years without a World Series title (coincidentally, theyâ€™ve only existed for 18 years).
Our advisor Mike Humphrey goes as far as to call the Cubs â€œthe most obnoxious sports franchise in America.â€
In addition, the Cubs are only 10-13 this season, whereas our mighty Rockies are 16-7. Denver is pretty and has mountains whereas Chicago is a hellhole full of wind and gang warfare and ruled by that tyrant, Oprah Gail Winfrey.
So take that, Tony Frank: The Cubs suck, and the Collegian totally un-endorses them.
Despite Tonyâ€™s absolutely terrible taste in baseball teams, the email also told us something else: Heâ€™s a pretty darn good guy. In addition to his carpel-tunnel-syndrome inducing budget emails, this message shows heâ€™s a guy who actually cares about his students, a trait that previous administrators had in short supply.
The mere fact that he even bothers to address the students who were comfortable enough to send him trash-talk shows heâ€™s willing to facilitate a genuine relationship with CSU students, something many of the girls on staff called, â€œadorable.â€
So props to you, Tony. Even though the Cubs still suck.
