Billy Corgan on the state of Chicago sports

During Wednesday's 2nd of 4 nights in town, Smashing Pumpkins leader and well-known Cubs fan took time out from rocking out and rankling fans to weigh in on the return of Ditka and his role in bringing about a Bears Super Bowl win and Armageddon, his belief he can write a better song to replace Steve Goodman's "Go Cubs Go," and Eddie Vedder's role in the demise of the 2008 Cubs season. He also acknowledges the Sox team's recent superiority in the inevitable cross-town comparison, and Bobby Jenks' ever ballooning waist size before launching into "Disarm."

Note there's a handful of NSFW language, so use headphones in the office.
