The Chicago Cubs victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers last night means they haven’t been knocked out of the post-season just yet.

Plenty of optimistic fans are doing everything they can to spread some positive vibes to their favorite team. For some this includes dressing up or waving a W flag.

But graphic designers Russell Muits and Joe Howe are taking things a step further.

The pair of artists are painting Chicago manhole covers in Cubs colors and logos. They did this in 2016 as well on every day the Cubs had a game in the post-season on their way to a World Series Championship.

“It was just a random idea which kind of sparked new love for me in art,” Muits said. “It’s about seeking out historic, symbolic, interesting overlooked art and sharing it.”

Howe has been a longtime Cubs fan. “I was out here in the 70s and the 80s…we used to pay a dollar a ticket, sit in the bleachers with Bill Veeck and Todd Ricketts…I don’t believe the Cubs are dead, I think we’re still OK.”

WGN shared a video with interviews with plenty of optimistic (or naive) Cubs fans.

To be fair, this is a much more positive act than the poorly conceived pun the CTA tried to make.
