View Full Version : Cubs Win!

Not a typo! (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/recap?gid=231005115&prov=ap)

You know what'll happen if they win the World Series? Well one, a dimensional gate will open in the middle of North Dakota and Demons will spill out onto the Earth and consume the whole world in a miasma of agony. On the cover of Time that week? Jewel.

EDIT: Oh yes, I have to congratulate the Braves (AKA My Third Least Favorite Team Behind The Yankees and Giants(TM) for showing for a 4th straight year that they don't deserve the home field advantage they get in the playoffs.

Regardless of the fact that the Braves are my favorite team, I won't kill you yet. I'll let the demons do that for me.

Actually, I've always felt bad for the Cubs. So I'll cheer for them, even though they beat my Braves.

I would really like to see the Devil Rays win the Series. I live in Clearwater (across the bay from Tampa), and although I don't say it much, I'm kind of a fan. Braves still and always #1 though.

If the Yanks can win the ALCS, then i have no doubt in my mind that they can go all the way. This is the one they will win, because the last time it was just a fluke.

10-06-2003, 09:28 PM
Right now I'm cheering for anyone that plays against the Yankees because
1:I just don't like them
2:and they beat the Twins.

I'm really hoping for a Cubs /Red Sox World Series. It would be too cool for words.
A.) It would mean one of the world's most losingest teams is going to win the big one; and...
B.) It would be played out in the 2 oldest parks in the country.

Obviously, you should all be able to guess who I'd be rooting for, but If we had to lose the World Series (again,) it would be wild to say we lost it to the Cubs,.. of all teams!

10-07-2003, 10:09 AM
Whoa! Anyone catch the Bo-Sox game last night? Talk about a friggen' close shave. Now it's time to show the goddamn yankers who the better team is.

And a Cubs - Sox world series would be awesome...

That would be cool if the Cubs win also. :D

I can see the marketing campaigns now:

Cubs vs Red Sox the series to... well... ONE of them has to win it, right?

Hehe, seems like the rivalry still exists. Im rooting for the Yanks all the way (big surprise there). As for the National League, i have a feeling that the Marlins are going to beat the Cubs.

[Harray Carray Voice]HEY! IF YOU WERE A HOTDOG, WOULD YA EAT YOURSELF?!? I WOULD...I'D BE SO DELICIOUS!![/Harray Carray voice]

Heh, sorry, couldn't resist...anywho, I do hope the Cubs win :D

10-08-2003, 11:39 AM
Well, unfortunatly, the cubs lost last night to the one team I can't stand. The Florida Marlins...yes I know, I'm from Florida, but I never liked them in the first place. Go Devil Rays! Worst team in the League. Yeah!!!

10-10-2003, 12:13 PM
I didnt know the devil rays existed. . .
Go expos!!!! yea!!
. . .
. . .
;) then again maybe not. . .

It would be funny to see the red sox and the cubs though. . .

Whoa. I have just witnessed the curse with my own eyes. Jeffery Maier all over again...

the world is a crazy place...so many people were mad about this game that even I heard about it! And I don't have any love for the game. That has really got to suck...but it's pretty much happens all the time. Ref makes a call that "could have" been the difference in the game, etc, etc. That's life.

Jeebus, the Cubbies really are cursed! They were up 3-1 and the Marlins took the series!

Lets go Sox! Someone has to defeat the curse!

10-16-2003, 02:21 PM
That was a sad, sad, sad, sad, sad display of "Baseball" by the Cubs last night. Dusty left Wood in for too long, their bullpen sucks, and that Sam Hornish look-alike for the Marlins was lucky that the Cubs were swinging for the fences all the time.

I hope the Sox beat the Satans tonight

10-17-2003, 03:27 AM
Yankees won!!!:D

Now to fillet the Marlins!

After this season, i retire from being Yankees fan because they arent the same anymore.

I speak for everyone outside the greater New York area, who seem to think that the world revolves around them, when I say this:

This is going to be the least interesting World Series in recorded history.
I, for one, plan to avoid it.

10-17-2003, 10:14 AM
Holy crap. Why why WHY! So close to the world series and someone has to screw up. I have to blameGrady Little for this huge loss. It's one thing for Bill Buckner to miss an easy ground-ball out, but it's another thing for a manager to screw up with finding the right moment to go to the bull-pen. Everyone on the Red-Sox cam through except for Grady Little. It was damn obvious that Pedro was running on empty after he let Jeter double. That's what happens to most pitchers when they pitch 7 innings of great baseball. So, instead of taking out Pedro and putting in one of the relievers (who have been doing a helluva job) he sticks with Pedro and watches William's single. He STILL leaves Pedro in. 2 at bats later, the Yankees had come back from a 3 run defecit to tie it up. Unbelievable.

And I must say, **** the goddamned Yankees, although it did give me some pleasure to see Clemens pulled out in the 3rd.

I hear ya bud. Rememeber the year the San Diego Padres some how slid in to the series. what a joke. They were gone in 4 games. I think this might be just a bit better then that but not by much. I'm almost sure the ratings will suck big time.

I bet they would of been through the roof it was the cubs and bosox though.

Even my Dad wanted the cubbies.

10-17-2003, 11:10 AM
The 2 teams I HATE the most in ALL of baseball both made it to the series. This stinks.

Either team would have provided some drama,.. with both of those teams there would be something at stake. Now it's like "Who cares?" except for a few New Yorkers. It's going to be about as nail-biting as the California recall election. The question isn't "Who will win?" but "How quickly will they win, and how badly will they humiliate the other side?" Yawn.
Yeah, ckcsaber, there was some stupidity going on there last night. But, sad to say, that's almost par for the course when the Sox are under pressure, and unfortunately, I'm really not that surprised. :(
When I left work last night the Sox were up by a couple (or maybe it was tied by then; ) By the time I walked through the door and got the TV on the Yanks were celebrating. *Sigh.*

Everyone hates the Yankees because they always win. And like being a Yankees because the are from where my family is from.

10-18-2003, 02:51 PM
Its not just the fact that they always win...

Let's have some backdrop here: There are some teams in professional sports that are good, then there are those who win all the time and do everything in their power to make you know it in an arrogant way, I'm talking about teams like Manchester United, The Dallas Cowboys, The LA Lakers, and of course: The New York Yankees.

Their owner, their GM, their fans, and most of their roster embody this concept.

I, personally, hate Darek Jeter, who is probably THE most ovverated person in baseball today. You look at the Yankee starting lineup and Jeter is probably the 9th best player on there. Plus, he looks like a bastard child of The Rock and Lance Bass

I won't be watching, since I think MLB should be able to fix these things, but I hope the Fish kill them.
