Free at last.

Free at last.

Lord God Almighty. Free at last.

108 years.

Ha ha

That wss not an easy win tonight. Indians came back twice from large deficits. I thought they would do it a third time in the 10th inning. Maddon manages a game kind of like Wally. Plays it "safe," wishing and hoping. Conservative. But his guys kept after it.

At this time of year, baseball absolutely rocks. :thup:

Very, very hard to watch. Very satisfying ending for the Cubbies.

Robert Zemekis' prediction in his Back to the Future Part II film was just off by one year which isn't too bad - albeit it wasn't a sweep over Miami as indicated.


In any case, excellent job by the Cubs in fighting back from a 3-1 deficit and winning games 6 and 7 in Cleveland. I suppose Cleveland can take consolation that their Cavaliers still won a championship a few months ago, but certainly their Browns won't win the Super Bowl this season.

祝加拿大加式足球聯賽不列颠哥伦比亚卑詩雄獅隊今年贏格雷杯冠軍。此外祝溫哥華加人隊贏總統獎座·卡雲斯·甘保杯·史丹利盃。還每年祝溫哥華白頭浪隊贏美國足球大联盟杯。不要忘記每年祝溫哥華巨人贏西部冰球聯盟冠軍。

改建後的卑詩體育館於二十十一年九月三十日重新對外開放,首場體育活動為同日舉行的加拿大足球聯賽賽事,由主場的卑詩雄獅隊以三十三比二十四擊敗愛民頓愛斯基摩人隊。

祝你狗年行大運。

恭喜西雅图海鹰直到第四十八屆超級盃最終四十三比八大勝曾拿下兩次超級盃冠軍的丹佛野馬拿下隊史第一個超級盃冠軍。

I once cheered for whatever baseball team Bo played on just because of Bo.

I decided this week to cheer for the cubs when I read about Comrie being one of the owners.

I remember watching game 6 of the 2003 NLCS when the Cubs were 5 outs away from advancing to the World Series when a fan named Steve Bartman allegedly interfered with a possible foul catch fly out. He has just been given an official (not replica) 2016 World Series ring by the Cubs organization. I guess that's one way to get an official World Series ring, though I wonder if he's willing to trade that in exchange for all the harassment that he's received since that incident.

Fans should realy just keep their hands inside the fan area. I can't think of another sport where fans can put themselves out into the field of play.
Tell me how long must a fan be strong? Ans. Always.

Another World Series going to a game 7. Who do you want to win between the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers?

The Astros have never captured the World Series. Whereas the LA Dodgers last won the World Series during the fall of 1988 with Orel Hershiser's MVP pitching and Kirk Gibson's walk off home run in game 1 that allowed them to update favoured Oakland Athletics.

Who remembers the fall of 1988? The Great One started playing for the Los Angeles Kings after the summer trade, the BC Lions went on a hot streak to win two road playoff games to advance to the Grey Cup, the Vancouver 86ers won their first CSL title, rookie Trevor Linden started for the Canucks, and George HW Bush and Michael Dukakis were competing to become the next U.S. President.

I was neutral re these teams going in, but this changed when Astros' Yuli Gurriel mocked Dodger Yu Darvish with a racial gesture. Now, I'm pulling for the Dodgers. Just no place for this kind of crap in sports.

October and November. The only times I watch baseball.

I was able to catch the final 5 innings tonight, and a big part of the amazing Game 5.

''Who is on first,'' answers Abbott to Costello. This time it was ... Yeah. That guy. The guy that gets suspended next year for his racist gesture. Yuli Gurriel.

"What's on second," says Lou Abbott. For the Astros it was Jose Altuve. Little guy. Big hitter. :thup:

Pitcher? Tomorrow. Charley Morton. Pitcher. Very, very impressive. Kind of an unheralded veteran. But other pitchers rate him highly. The Dodgers got nothing off him. No threat whatsoever.

Houston had the hurricane. Now they have the World Series champions. Apparently the only Texas team to win the World Series.
