Because We Have To

The winner of the Obstructed View Unofficially Official 2013 Chicago Cubs Slogan* Contest has been chosen.

There were so many great entries, in a way you are all winners, but in a more accurate way, there was only the one winner.  By virtue of a plurality of the popular vote by our readers (and possibly members of their families), the submission by intrepid reader, MO, has been selected as the Obstructed View Unofficially Official 2013 Chicago Cubs Slogan**:

MO, has politely deferred his Grand Prize to Nick, who submitted the runner-up slogan, "Don't Say We Didn't Warn You." So all five finalists will be receiving the Essential Games of the Chicago Cubs DVDs and Nick will be receiving the OV t-shirt as well.

Thank you to everyone who submitted slogans. It was difficult to narrow it down to five finalists, and we're really glad you guys did the voting to choose the eventual winner. Here is the full list of submissions:
