|A BROKEN BAT GROUND BALL TO SECOND BASE BY JOHAN SANTANA THAT BECOMES A HIT BECAUSE IT HITS THE BARREL OF THE BROKEN BAT.|
MAN ON THIRD WITH NO OUTS INNINGS IN A ROW IN A TIE GAME AND CAN'T SCORE.
COMING BACK FROM 3 RUNS DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF A RAIN STORM.
WHAT A TREMENDOUS SERIES. I KNOW THE CUBS DIDN'T PLAY ALL THEIR REGULARS, BUT IT WAS FUN TO WATCH.
WHAT A GREAT MATCHUP IT WOULD BE IF WE CAN GET IN THE PLAYOFFS.
THE BREWERS JUST WON WITH A WALKOFF GRANDSLAM.
THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.

|Maybe a weekend trip, I'll go to a game with you. But it's gotta be a Mets game and you'd have to at least wear a Mets cap.|
The surrounding neighborhood (Wrigley is smack dab in the middle of a neighborhood) and establishments have plenty to offer as well.

|CONGRATULATIONS CUB FANS FOR WINNING TE BEST RECORD IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE AND HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE IN THE FRIENDLY CONFINES OF WRIGLEY. |
SOME DAY I'LL HAVE TO MAKE IT OUT THERE FOR A GAME. THAT IS ONE STADIUM I HOPE THEY NEVER CLOSE.

|THE END OF AN ERA|
THE YANKEES PLAYED THEIR LAST GAME TONIGHT AT YANKEE STADIUM
THE HOUSE THAT BABE BUILT--YOGI BERRA--JOE DIMAGGIO----& COUNTLESS OTHERS MY BRAIN CAN'T THINK OF RIGHT NOW
IT AIN'T OVER TIL THE FAT LADY SINGS & SHE'S SINGING A BITTERSWEET SONG NOW
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES !!

|I think we both agree that the All Star game rule is ignorant, but it is what it is, no excuses, right??? Some team from the NL has to step up and bring the title back to the senior circuit!!! If not my team, maybe yours can do it. |

YES, IT SHOULD BE A GOOD SERIES, ALTHOUGH I THINK THE METS WILL BE MORE DESPRITE. CUBS SHOULD CLINCH HOME FIELD THROUGH THE PLAYOFFS BY THEN.
EXECPT FOR THE WORLD SERIES BECAUSE OF THE STUPID RULE THET THE LEAGUE THAT WINS THE ALL STAR GAME GETS HOME FIELD IN THE WORLD SERIES.

|Go Cubs Go|
Go Cubs Go
Hey Chicago what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today
They really have a team that can get to the WS, and maybe even win it!!!
Die hard Cub fan, but NOT a hater, Brewers have been a formidable rival since they switched Leagues, and I hope it never changes!!
Scorp, it doesn't matter who we face in the WS, but I would love to face the White Sox. They had their little party after '05. If the Cubs win it all, we'll be partying for a decade, hell, Chicago might not even survive a Cubs win (you heard the story of what Mrs. O'Leary's cow did, right? Amplify that by about 5 million!!! lol).
I do hope to see the Mets in the NLCS (would like the chance to break THAT curse as well.
Good Luck Mets!!! (we're facing off this week for 3 games at Shea)

|CUB FANS, IF YOU HAD A CHOICE, WOULD YOU RATHER TAKE YOUR CHANCES ON BEATING THE WHITE SOX IN THE WORLD SERIES OR HAVING THEM MISS THE PLAYOFFS ALL TOGETHER?|

|Congratulations even though they are my teams #1 rival. I did enjoy that no hitter the other day (was played in our stadium). The Brewers have been going down hill fast. So, good luck to the Cubs, hope they go all the way now that my team is pretty much out of it.|

|YOU CAN GET CFL GAMES LATE AT NIGHT IF YOU SEARCH YOUR LOCAL SPORTS CHANNELS IN THE U.S. THEGAME IS INTERESTING. FASTER THAN THE NFL DUE TO THE BIGGER FIELD AND ONLY DOWNS. |
LAST SEASON I WATCHED A GAME BETWEEN CALGARY AND EDMONTON THAT WAS GREAT. THE SNOW WAS PILING UP QUICKER THAN THEY COULD CLEAN IT OFF THE FIELD.

It will be an interesting year to say the least. Now, the Brewers fired Ned Yost so we have interesting things going on there too.
