Cubs Magic Number-o-meter

3

Any combination of three Cubs victories or three Milwaukee Brewers losses will result in the Chicago Cubs clinching the National League Central Division title.

No wonder you guys can get along--Cubs Fans.

I'm actualy cheering for Milwaukee--not to win the Division, but to beat San Diego a good 3 times, so my Rockies can win the Wild Card. We've won 10 straight, but the last two nights we've won and so has San Diego.

The Cubs just CAN'T win this year. It would ruin everything? How can a franchise go 99 years without winning a World Series and then, when they're on the doorstep of being the first team EVER to go a century between titles, blow that chance at making history?

The Cubs would be doing the world a disservice by winning this year. It would be MUCH more fun next year, when the big, fat number "100" is attached to everything Cubs.

Hi Matt,
I could be completely wrong, but didn't Boston go 100 years between championships?

No, but they came close...86 years. But they get a pass, because in the process of winning their World Series, they did something that no one else had ever done before when they overcame a 3 games to 0 deficit to beat the Yankees and win the American League pennant.

If the Cubbies could find a way to do something like that this year, that would be fine...but they're so close to that "100 years" thing that it would be a bit disappointing if they didn't get there.

Of course, David can tell you that I predicted the Cubs to be in the World Series way back in February, so I suppose I should be rooting them on, too...

Matt--
Thanks for the info. I don't know why I had in my head it was 100 years for Boston.

That is way cool that you predicted the Cubs would take the series back in February. That was a bold prediction! I'm sure you won't be disappointed if they do it this year instead of next year!

It's getting very exciting...I'm living in my Cubs shirt these days.
I'm keeping the mustard stains...adds character to it.

I should root for the Cubs if the Braves aren't making the playoffs. You know - since their AAA farm team is in my home state of Iowa.

I have a hard time watching baseball. But you learn to love it when your better half eats, sleeps and breathes the Atlanta Braves. It was either that, or divorce court. :)

LOL Renee...
It's wise to be a same family team.

My ex husband was a Yankees fan. That should have told me all I needed to know!

Sharon;

Big 10 football is a whole other issue. It's a house divided. Matt's a Michigan fan, and I'm a Hawkeye. The only time I will root for Michigan is when they play Ohio State.

And of course Matt and I both Steelers fans. :)

David;

How did you set your comment section to not take anon comments? I'd like to do that for our blog, but have had no luck switching it over. Any suggestions?

Renee;
There is a comments setting under "comments" in template settings that allows you to make that change.

For now, I am allowing anonymous comments again, but as you can see, I have given everyone fair warning that nastiness is subject to deletion.
