By request. Root, root, root for the home team--or someone else entirely!

Astro here too

Maybe a corny reason to root for a team but am pulling for the Houston Astros's after the devastation there from hurricane Harry.
Being a Red Sox I don't mind getting knocked out by them.

this is the end

They could not pull it off last night, but it was an amazing run. Fans gave the team an extended standing ovation after the game. One national sportswriter wrote he had never seen anything like that after a regular season loss. Neither had I.

It will take a lot to beat the Tribe. Dominant starting pitching; amazing bullpen; power and clutch hitting throughout the lineup; well above-average defense; strong bench; great manager and fantastic team chemistry. Maybe we should declare them the champs now? :)

@ms. fluffball and mkav

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

cubs-tribe

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.
WFNY again.

go browns

Parade

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
