Friendly Baseball Rivalries in the Workplace

Yesterday Hubby's boss told him to come to work an hour late since he was going to have to stay late for a meeting. Usually he's one of the first people in the parking lot. Yesterday, he got to park by the resident Chicago Cubs's fan. (Now I just had a ten-minute stress break over how exactly to type Cubs. Apostrophe-s, apostrophe only? If I were a newspaper, apparently I would have done only an apostrophe from what I read. But I'm not. So determining that the Chicago Cubs is a singular noun since they are a team and not plural as a group, I would apostrophe-s. Maybe it's the homeschool mom in me that felt the need to share all that with you. Otherwise it was the digressing, talking, blogging chick.)

Just in case you aren't a baseball fan and don't know, the Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals are rivals. And we love the Cardinals. Also a singular team.

Today Hubby got an email of their vehicles parked next to each other.

Hope you can see it better up close.

So funny!

I think I would just do the apostrophe. You wouldn't pronounce the S twice. But I don't have a grammar rule in mind to back this up! ha-ha!

I LOVE it! I live in Illinois, but we're much closer to St. Louis, so the Cardinal--Cub rivalry gets vicious around here. Downright nasty sometimes! (BTW, I'm a Cards fan, too!)

That is hilarious!!!! :)

By the way, as an editor I have to tell you it would just be written as Cubs fan. Not Cubs's. And not Cubs' either. ;) But I also have to admit the rules on such are vague and vary from editor to editor and manual to manual. So I just say it as a personal preference, no real reason. ;)

I great up about 2 hrs from St. Louis but my fam was always for the Cubs. We grew up in a town though where they were rivals and all the stores had both apparel but more so for the Cards. Now I live in Chicagoland and am definitely a Cubs fan over the White Sox!! Go Cubs go!!!

That license plate thing thou is absolutely hilarious. Glad you have a picture or no one would believe it. :)

Oops. As an editor I should really read my own stuff. Just re-read what I wrote AFTER I sent it, and am embarrassed to see that I wrote "great" instead of "grew" in the first line of the second paragraph. Ahhhhh, shame on me! LOL
