A Sox-Cubs World Series would be the greatest thing for Baseball since the Sammy/McGwire deal a few years back
I am sorta sickened by all of the band wagon Cubs fans I am seeing though, that is what I will give some nods towards the East Coast, you guys are far more passionate about sports and don't cheer for the flavor of the month like the rest of the country seems to (ESPECIALLY LA!)
SHould be an interesting few weeks and hopefully we don't have to ban a few members over their passions (That was not a threat BTW, only joking)
Well, the Cubs have been on in a lot of television markets for years, so there are some Cubs fans scattered around the US. I think a lot of people are just so happy to see them in the playoffs. Add in the mystique of Wrigley field, the stalwart Cubs fans who have stood by them for years, and a couple of the best starting pitchers in baseball in the form of Kerry Wood and Mark Prior PLUS Sammy Sosa, and you've got a storybook setting. That's why I think a lot of people love the Cubs.
Now, I'd love to see the Cubs make it to the series. And that's where my love would end. Because if the Yankees are in the series too, well I'm cheering for the team that I started watching in the late '70's. But, it would also be known as the Holy Cow! World Series. Too bad Harry Carey isn't around to see this! Thankfully, the Scooter still is.
