    Cubs-Indians World Series

    The Cubs haven't won a World Series since 1908, the Indians haven't won a World Series since 1948, so two long suffering franchises. My wife grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and is a long-time Cub fan, so I'm going to be biased and rooting for the Cubs... but Cleveland fans have been long-suffering as well (there's a reason why the movie(s) Major League featured Cleveland). So it's going to be a great story no matter who wins.

    Just a thread for y'all to post any thoughts as the series goes along.

    I hope Charlie Sheen gets to throw out a first pitch, or shows up to watch the games.

    Might even end up watching a game or two of this. If I can stay awake that is.

    I just hope this goes 7 and into extra innings. Maximum pain for one team's fans.

    I feel weird rooting for the Cubs for a couple of reasons:
    1) I live on the south side and our team is the White Sox
    2) I've only lived here for so long...but I don't really follow baseball, so whatever.

    Let's go Cubs. This city is already going nuts. There's a Cubs hat/helmet on the Lions at the Art Institute. There's a Cubs Jersey on a dinosaur at the Field Museum. Good stuff.

    It was one game. Keep in mind, the Dodgers also shut out the Cubs 6-0 in a game. Look at where they are now...

    IMO its a must win tonight for the Cubs, they dont want to go down 0-2 knowing that they have to still face Kluber 2 times.

    Arrieta was dealing and Cubs win back the home field advantage.

    Cleveland just wants to get the series back home, 3-2 either way. I hate the 2-3-2 format...
