Correction to your September 14th Wrigley homage. EAMUS CATULI means “little bear,” not “let’s go cubs.” Just thought you might be interested. NLC Champs!!!!!
Eamus: from the root “eo”
eo ire itum : to go, advance, proceed, travel, move along, progress.
Imperative 1st person plural form : go! [as in, commanding us to go]
catuli : baby bear.
A cub is a baby bear.
Therefore: Go Cubs!
Heard your obscure Latin reference to the Cubs a few times over the past few days here in Chicago in the midst of Cubs Fever and didn’t know what it was all about, until I read this site, which has as good a definition as I could find and much more:
