Ite Catuli!

How about those Cubs?

They beat the Cardinals to advance another step toward the World Series.

That said, today is the anniversary of the infamous Bartman incident, when a fan interfered with an out, thus extended the enemy’s inning and leading to the Cubs getting knocked off.

    Oops…. Forgive me Father, for I failed to read the earlier post (back when the Cubs were still consistently losing). I predict Cubs in 6 and a Series vs. KC that will be epic….

    Not just a World Series game at Wrigley, which is mind-blowing in and of itself, but a World Series game in November (Games 6 and 7, to be played at the NL team’s home field, are scheduled for Nov. 3 and 4), that could concievably experience a snow delay — Chicago had measurable snow on Halloween last year:
