Mom used to take me to Wrigley Field when I was 5 until we moved to Miami when I was nine. I know she was looking down on the Cubs when they got that last out to shut out the Dodgers.

Wish I had time to fly up for one of the games and get a hot dog at the original Billy Goat Tavern.

First time I'll be watching the World Series in decades.

My guess is that this will be one of the most-watched series in many years. The Cubs, by virtue of losing for so long, have a massive following!

Yes indeed.  We rode the subway to get to the park from where we lived in Logan Square.

That is awesome. My son in law and I recently saw 2 games at Fenway. Rode the subway from Cambridge.

Planning a trip to see either the Ravens or Red Skins....next month.

The Indians are going into the top of the ninth with a 6-0 lead. They look formidable.

The Indians are a very good team. 1-0 lead in the series.

I have a friend who is a long time Indian fan. He's always thanking me for Andrew Miller. LOL.

They are moving the start time up an hour, claiming it has to do with weather, but I have heard sports radio complaining about how late the games were in LA and San Francisco with some being extra inning. I think their ratings are being adversely impacted by such long and late games. I remember as if it was yesterday in third grade listening on the radio to a White Sox vs Dodgers 1959 in the day time world series. You will never see the same again because of TV ratings.

A 6pm start time in Chicago is going to get longer viewers and West Coast watching the final innings. I think all of sports are freaking out because viewership is dropping like a rock. I do not know if it is the election, or a long term trend.

I watched until the no hitter got ruined. Pretty good baseball.

I've watched a lot of MLB this year, and the quality of play this season and into the postseason has been exceptional IMO.

In way of contrast, Sunday was the first time this season I've had the time and inclination to watch a considerable amount of NFL, and I was appalled.

The quality of play and the officiating were deplorable.

No wonder their ratings are tanking.

The Cubs with their youngsters are some kind of special....the kid blows out his ACL in spring training and gets clear by the doc last week and hits two games in Arizona league, and he drives in two runs in the World Series. I mean I have never in my life seen so many kids under 25 with the ability to play multiple positions led by a more capable manager. The genius of Epstein is unquestioned. I think we may be looking at a Yankee type dynasty over the next five to ten years if they keep management and the core of young players. They have some needs in the bullpen, and maybe a starter, but they have the best young players in all of baseball, and in my opinion the best manager. As a sox fan this is killing me, but great baseball is art, and anybody who cannot appreciate what this is..........well they are probably voting for Trump.

My wife and I had a ritual with the kids and before the kids on Sunday watching the Bears. She really enjoyed the games. The dog, the kids curled up watching our beloved Bears every Sunday. Players would stay with the team for five or six years. You knew their personalities and they were active in the community on charitable activities. Chicago was known for tough defense and grinding run games.

We watch now, but many times I leave the house at half time and run the bobcat or cut grass. It has become a game of passing. The best qb usually controls the top positions in the league. There are no great teams with long term team members. Yes, you always have a good show from NE, but even Green Bay, Oakland, Bears, NY, and other mainstays seem like for the last five years they are lost. Maybe it was expansion which watered down the games. Maybe watching grown men possibly hurting themselves long term is not as much fun when that knowledge had most fans in ignorant bliss. I do not get the same reaction from a crushing tackle......a little bit of a sick feeling having seen players I grew to love commit suicide, and have their wives give them a list for their daily activities because they cannot remember the same. No when football was tough and tumble it was fun. When football became a gladiator stadium of media making millions off the carnage of humans.......not so much. I still love the game, but it is not the same.

It's also all become so formulaic.

I guess it's been proven that's how you win games, but it's so predictable and boring to watch.

Where have you gone Kenny Stabler? ... our nation turns it's lonely eyes to you ... woo woo woo.

This is turning out to be an exceptional world series. Good pitching. Good hitting. Exceptional defense. I had a partner travel to Cleveland to watch the second game the Cubs won. The cheapest ticket in Chicago was $1,500, and he got four tickets for $750 a ticket and went with his wife, assistant, and plant manager. Chicago only gets three games because of the All Star Game, and with more games the Cleveland ticket with a larger stadium is cheaper. If this goes to seven in Cleveland you are going to see as many Chicago fans on that last game as Cleveland fans. They will drive the price off the charts. Yuppie Cub fans have unlimited budgets.

Baseball does not get much better than this. Murray did a great job on take me out to the ballpark, and the fans are on the edge of their seats. I love this game, and these young kids who are just playing great. Russell's dive catch of the liner was brilliant. Who would think with the wind blowing out at Wrigley that it would be a 1-0 game.

The Indians almost played a perfect game to beat the Cubs. All the way to the last batter every person watching this game was on their seat's edge. Great game.
