    Reverting back to a Cubs fan after a 40 year absence!

    So I reckon that makes the Indians a shoo in. :)

    Much appreciated, OAP!

    Wouldn't mind if you also started cheering for the Golden State Warriors, but that can wait until next spring.

    Throughout the time I have lived in Chicagoland (20+ years), many people have asked if I was a Cubs fan. My response: I don't follow minor league baseball. Of course, I was only (somewhat) kidding. If the Cubs win this World Series, I'll have to come up with a new response.

    Go Tribe!

    Me and my new Cub's friend that I met at the game tonight cheering Perez's 8th inning homer. Barney said I may have caused a power surge when I arrived at the game.

    Game 1: at Cleveland Indians 6, Chicago Cubs 0

    Great start for the Cleveland Indians! Two home runs from Roberto Perez in support of a great effort from starting pitcher Corey Kluber. The Tribe takes a 1-0 in the World Series. Game 2 is tomorrow night.

    Sorry, TDV, I'll root for you when you're playing bubble craps, but I hope that ticket finds its way to the trash can.

    was listening to local oldies station today while working, dj said the tickets are being scalped all the way up to 6 thousand dollars.

    he said that's really not bad, cub fans had 100 years to save up for them.


    does anyone remember the old commercial, where tommy Lasorda is trying to talk some guy out of a tree(don't remember what the commercial was for), and he said, come on, things aren't that bad, whos your favorite baseball team, the guys says the cubs, tommy Lasorda shakes his head no and says, uh, a cubbies fan.

    I still think as Ive mentioned before in another thread, Cleveland is a tuff team to beat, probably in 6 games, but Id prefer cubbies only because they've waited long enough.

    Game 2: Chicago Cubs 5, at Cleveland Indians 1

    upload_2016-10-26_23-21-29.png

    Cubs tie up the World Series 1-1 behind the pitching of Jake Arrieta, who had a no hitter through five innings. Trevor Bauer, who stayed away from a drone during the days leading up to Game 2, was erratic and looked rusty from basically not having pitched for several weeks. All told, Tribe pitchers walked 8 Cubs hitters.

    Games 3, 4 and 5 will be played at Wrigley Field in Chicago beginning on Friday.

    Game 3: Cleveland Indians 1, at Chicago Cubs 0

    upload_2016-10-28_23-39-48.png

    On a night where the wind was blowing out, pitching somehow dominated. Cleveland finally pushed a run across in the 7th inning on Coco Crsip's single and that was enough for the Indians to take a 2-1 lead in the World Series. Game 4 is tomorrow at Wrigley Field.
