Well I believe it is today exactly 96 years ago that the Cubs won their last World Series to the Tigers....It is impressive how 96 years ago we went to the World Series for the thrid consecutive year and won it 2 in a row....sadly it' been all downhill from there

Don't worry, the cubs will be back soon. I would assume there is more pressure to bring a winner to Chicago since the Sox are in the WS now.
I hope the Sox win, I am one of the few who follow both teams.

I follow both teams (though in the crosstown rivalry I prefer the cubs), and as a chicagoan (although I go to school in ATL), I'm glad to see the WS finally come back to the windy city! The cubs will have their day...

Quoting Tsaord (Reply 6): cubs? the white sox are chicago's team!!!
Talk to me next year when the Sox will still be having trouble selling out their home games.
Quoting LOT767-300ER (Reply 5): Ive pondered the idea exactly why Comiskey was renamed US Cellular Field. I dont know of ANYONE that actually has US cellular in Chicago.
Because they ponied up $68 million for the naming rights for the next 20 years. Of course once US Cell becomes extinct in the next couple of years, they'll just sell the name to the highest bidder again. At least the Sox are doing the right thing and using that money to improve the ballpark.
October 14 also marks the 2 year anniversary of the infamous Bartman game. Not that I'm bitter about that or anything.
