In fine Chicago tradition, the weather for opening week was miserable — but at least that gives fans an excuse to check out new wearable swag nearby, which Monica recently did at Obvious Shirts on Clark.

Why it matters: The store, which opened in 2022, goes beyond the usual blue shirts emblazoned with a C and offers messages and designs that only Cub fans will understand.

What they're saying: "My boss Joe Johnson thinks up most of the shirts, but sometimes fans will come in here and make up some of their own sayings," store clerk James Becker recently told Axios.

What's happening: We've created a multiple-choice quiz based on some of the shirts to test your Cubs acumen.
