It's becoming increasingly difficult not to talk about the Chicago Cubs.

You may have noticed it at work, or in the classroom. It was subtle at first - a "go Cubbies" here, a W flag there; but with the northsiders about to play Game 1 of a World Series for the first time since 1945, Milwaukee and southern Wisconsin in general has progressed (regressed?) to full-on Cubs fever.

It's certainly true Milwaukee has its fair share of Chicago transplants. But no doubt a decent number have also hopped on this particular bandwagon as it was already in progress. 

That brings us to what seems to be the question of the week - is it okay for Milwaukee to cheer for the Chicago Cubs in the World Series? Should Brewers fans jeer their rivals, or cheer them on as would-be cursebreakers? You can dive into those arguments across multiple regional publications.

Whoever you're cheering for, it's clear we're in for a historic series - the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians have the longest combined championship droughts of any MLB team.
