Bit weird we don't have a thread on baseball yet, and with a historic WS matchup coming up, there's never been a better time.

Either the Cubs break the 107 year curse or Cleveland break their 50 year championship drought twice in one year.

Thoughts?

My only ever baseball game was a Cubs game. My friend from Chicago took me there. I'm happy as it gets for him, but I'm a Yankees fan (have been for years) and so obviously I'm not overjoyed with them not getting there.

What's with all the hate for the cubs ?
My dad was a Cubs fan for 69 years. For 37 of them, even though I'm a pirates fan, I was perfectly content with the idea of the Cubs winning a World Series, so that my dad could celebrate that moment.

Now that my father has passed, the Cubs can go fuck themselves.

Well. I'm a brewers fan so they're our rival. It's part of the Chicago vs wisconsin thing. But mostly, and there are long time die bards, but all the yuppie fuck that move to Chicago become cubs fans and the are total d bags. But more than that, the treatment of bartman was so over the top for doing something that everyone would have done makes me hate them even more

He was a Chicago fan who went to the game and tried to catch a ball. He fucked it up and deflected it so that a player couldn't catch it.



The other team went on to score eight runs in the inning, and that was Chicago's last best chance at breaking a multi-decade run of not winning the championship. It's a little overblown though. They lost that game and then lost the next game, so it's not like Steve Bartman bombed the final out. :conf

:hat

Even more so that such a thread would go on to be started by an Irishman of all fucking people and posters. Your sex-c swag knows no limits. I stopped paying any attention at all to it after 2004 though, Pedro got a ring and my life following or caring about beisbol came to a glorious close.
