There's being superstitious towards the Cubs and then there's what this guy does to avoid jinxing the team.

A knuckleheaded Cubs fan (who we all kind of secretly think is awesome) texts his dead grandfather's number for playoff support.

He hoped by sending messages to the number, regardless of who is on the other line, Arrieta's Beard would in return receive positive messages back just like when his grandfather was alive.

It's kind of a sweet idea, keeping the memory of his grandpa alive while the Cubs make this historic run but at the same time, this guy might be trolling.

You can see, the guy or girl who now has his grandfather's old number isn't appreciative of the texts.

Maybe the person on the end is a White Sox fan.
