Cubs vs Indians World Series...

Postby hawksfan » Sat Oct 22, 2016 10:05 pm

What with all of the angst, anxiety & anquish in our American culture and politics that has permeated this very....strange...year of 2016...

How about that...? Something to feel good about in the public arena...

Cubs vs Indians... how do you route against either team? Either way a historic victory is going to occur...

Me...? I'm all in for the Cubs...108 years...? Come on man!! Kinda makes "our" 86 years seem wimpy doesn't it...?

As an avid baseball fan, this World Series is a win-win situation. My wife was raised in Chicago so I have an affinity for the Cubbies but I have the feeling my heart will be rooting for the Tribe.

Quite a bit of "Sox connection" also, most prominent of which is Tito vs Theo...the winner is slam dunk IN the HOF...

I grew up a Pirates fan but became loyal to the Red Sox until they beat the curse. Those long championship droughts make baseball more fun, at least to me. The anticipation of a choke is more compelling than the hope a team will win.

Hey Bartman, looks like the Cubs may be toast.

The '79 Pirates are the last NL team to win a World Series after being down 3 games to one. I had to throw that out there. Go Tribe.

CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN!

What a great game seven. What a game for the Cubbies to win the Series after all those years.
