Seems a pretty superstitious game.

That's part of the fun.

Cubs defeated the Injuns 9 to 3 last night, evening up the Series at 3 games each.

The deciding game is in Cleveland tonight, November 2. This is for all the marbles.

Can the Cubbies break the curse of Merkle's Boner (or the Billy Goat Curse, if applicable)?

108 years since Chicago won a World Series. The suspense in tonight's game will be palpable.

Yep. Congratulations, Chicago Cubs. An excellent series, and a well deserved win to break their 108 year drought.

And, now the fun of being a Cubs fan is over. it's like that feeling after the Christmas presents are opened, and the festivities done for the Christmas holiday. Sort of a happy I got presents, but deflated feeling that there is no more suspense and anticipation.....

No more curses.... no more "lovable losers..."

Not only did the Cubs win for the first time in over 100 years, but Ireland also won against the All Blacks for the first time in over 100 years - in Chicago!
