By request. Root, root, root for the home team--or someone else entirely!
Had no vested interest in either team, however it was the best 7 game world series in a long, long time. Living in the Buff, the other mistake by the lake I really feel for Cleveland. Hell, my Bills broke me in 1994 after 4 consecutive Super Bowl losses. I have to say, since then I have become indifferent to sports in general. Attending FTW in the Windy City (with both of you) gave me a real appreciation for Chicago and all it has to offer including the people, they were amazing. The Cubs were the "better" team when it was all said and done, but the Tribe held their own, and have nothing to be ashamed of.
Go Bills and Browns
great series. cubs deserved it but tribe was tough..hung in there with their probably best player (Bradley) out, and #2 and #3 starters hurt. No excuses thou'..cubs played well.
not a native clevelander, but lived there 20+ years, and raised my kids there (now in Tx), so I have a very special place in my heart for Believeland.
How was the party in Grant Park? Last year's KC parade and party in front of Union Station was incredible!
I'm not fat, I'm fluffy! :-)
But really. That was some seriously good baseball. It was a difference of only one more hit, right? A hit from Martinez, and the story has a completely different ending.
All is well in the Cubs universe when Kris Bryant is smiling. https://twitter.com/SportsCenter/status/794048351029329920
Congratulations on shaking the curse: 108 years was way too long for the Cubs faithful fans to wait. As a Cleveland native (I moved away in 1975) the goat is now counting 68 years. 2 years ago, in 2014, the Royals lost the Series at home, unable to get to Mad Bum; however, KC took it all in 2015. Maybe next year for the Tribe!!
Cubs are goin' to WIN today !!!
Oh, what a game. What an INSANE game. There are fireworks going off all over my neighborhood. I *love* fireworks!! WHAT A GAME !
Whoo Hoo !!!
Edit....running out of time, sadly
to paraphrase Ernie Banks..."Let's play seven" ?????
may the best team win....
but, I repeat myself.
Ahh, life can be so bittersweet
Smelling peanuts and dogs all beef
Star gazing at the feats of feet
Listening for the crack of bat
Savoring tastes of Cracker jack
Where is the bitter, you might ask...
Pennants ain't a given back to back.
So, Go Cubs Go!
