I was talking-laughing with some Cub fans at work today and the subject of a counter in the outfield came up. We seemed to agree it wasn't actually part of Wrigley Field but on a building across the street from the outfield somewhere. We thought it had something to do with time since winning, this is where the laughing was going on, a World Series.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Some of the rooftops have become legendary in their own right. The Lakeview Baseball Club, which sits across Sheffield Avenue (right-field) from the stadium displays a sign that reads, "Eamus Catuli!" (roughly Latin for "Let's Go Cubs!"—catuli translating to "whelps", the nearest Latin equivalent), flanked by a counter indicating the Cubs' long legacy of futility. The counter is labeled "AC," for "Anno Catuli," or "In the Year of the Cubs." The first two digits indicate the number of years since the Cubs' last division championship as of the end of the previous season (2008), the next two digits indicate the number of years since the Cubs' last trip to the World Series (1945), and the last three digits indicate the number of years since their last World Series win (1908).
