Food For Thought
1908....100 years ago since it has happened. 1908....or more specifically October 14th in 1908. That was the last time the Chicago Cubs won the prestigious world series title. There have been world wars, nazi's, presidential assassinations, the death of Kennedy's, watergate, energy crises & economic woes.
But is there a pain more unflinching, a feeling better accentuated than that of a Cubs fan spent waiting for the world series to come. since the Cubs last won a world series title there have been 31 former players to have earned their place in history as a world series winner.
So now as we sit mere hours away from the Cubs potentially clinching a spot in the Majors world series against their cross town rival the Chicago Whitesox. We have to wonder will season 9 be the year when Cubs fans can finally rejoice and bask in the glory of a world series victory.
The Pittsburgh pirates certainly hope to give the Majors an answer of no but they'll have to win game 6 to force a game 7 and stop the sure thing cross town war in the WS.
