The Real Losers?

I've been thinking about how the Cubs have been labeled losers of the past century only because we have failed to win a WS title since 1908 (not to mention not winning the NL Pennant since 1945).  It got me to thinking though...are we the ultimate losers?  I don't really think so.  Sure, it's been a little miserable not seeing a WS title hoisted in Chicago's north side since for 99 season, but technically, I don't think we should be labeled "losers."  It got me to thinking, remember last year when the Philadelphia Phillies became the first team to reach 10,000 losses?  Sure, they've been successful in recent years, but yet, they still only have 1 World Series title (compared to the Cubs' two) and have won the pennant only 5 times compared to the Cubs' 16 (granted, the Cubs have been a team for 7 years longer).  Do you think the label of "losers" should be planted onto the Phillies?  Maybe, maybe not, the choice is yours.  Just some food for thought..
