  1. In its 100th year since winning a World Series, the Chicago Cubs clinched a divisional championship yesterday. This was the first time that the Cubs won a championship in consecutive years--and the team has been playing since Custer's Last Stand!

    So, is this really the year? Is it going to happen?

    Ugh....this has to be the year, we have to take full advantage of our loaded roster. Pitching has been solid, offense has been anemic at times, but Lou Peniella has kept the team and this city focused and not giggly. Hang on, it's going to be a great ride.

    I hope they're going all the way and that's how I voted. :wink:
     
  4. I hope so. How fitting. 100 years.
    Like the 85 Bears you get a special season with a special team very seldom.

    100 years would mark a great way to win the series. Good Luck.
     
  6. Geez...I hope they win it all - just so the whiners will shut up. If they can manage to pull it off, combined with the fact that Boston has now won a couple, there will really be no crying in baseball.:wink:


    BTW, Glenn...I think that guy is just trying to get the beer vendor's attention.:biggrin:
     
  7. Not sure that being miffed watching grounders so through players legs, foul balls intercepted, and 100 years can be called whining. Besides there is always next year
     
  8. I sure hope its our year! Go CUBS!!!
     
  9. LOL :biggrin:
     
  10. Doh! Thanks for jinxing it ... ;)
