Sorry. I only pay attention to sports when the CUBS are in the playoffs, which didn't last long.

What an incredibly CUBS thing to do! Go into the playoffs in 1st place and get swept

Dan,

Frankly, I am still in shock and didn't post anything because I didn't want to jinx the team!! Can I open my eyes now?!

I kind of liked that short 3 inning game on Wednesday! Especially when it was all over!

Mark
PS GO YANKEES!

Read where the commuter trains in Philly were packed with fans going to join the celebration.


Not a very good selling point for SEPTA. I heard that trains were incredibly overcrowded, and way off schedule.

There was a World Series this year?



I believe there's one every year. Though the last one I remember was 1980.

You're right Kevin, MLB has players from all over the world now, my hometown Tigers on most nights had only 1 Afro-American & 1 Caucasian in the line-up, the other 7 were from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba and South America! There are more & more players from Japan & Korea in the majors now too. Today's World Series is far more "worldly" now than ever before. The NHL used to be comprised of almost all Canadians, now Europeans, Finns, and Swedes makeup many hockey teams. The NBA is also starting to go that way, seems like the NFL is the only major sport league madeup of almost entirely Americans.
