Baseball fever, of a sort, as overheard by the CTA Tattler:
We're on the Red Line heading north into Addison, about 30 minutes before the start of the Cubs' first playoff game, when we stop just north of Roscoe. The motorman announces:
"Attention passengers and Cubs fans. We are standing here waiting for a train at Addison to move. Then we'll pull into Addison and you can watch the Cubs LOSE.
At least the Cubs partisan passengers laughed. And do you think the motorman was psychic?
