  • Chicago Cubs are being forced to give up their World Series title

    11/12/2016 6:37:35 PM PST · by rey · 37 replies
    Cleveland Indians fans have rioted across the country in protest of the 2016 World Series. Despite knowing the rules of the game prior to playing, they were unhappy they lost and demanded the outcome to be changed. They could be heard chanting #NotOurWorldSeriesChampion all across America. Even though the Cubs won 4 games and the Indians only won 3, since both teams scored 27 total runs throughout all 7 games, they are being declared co-world champions. When questioned, Commissioner Manfred stated, "We felt as though it was the right thing to do for the nation. What kind of example would...
  • Why a World Series win for the Cubs is terrible for America

    Conservative Review ^ | October 25, 2016 | Robert Eno
    As a 43-year-old lifelong Red Sox fan, I understand heartbreak. I know exactly what it’s like to be a Cubs fan as they hurtle toward another potential devastating post-season loss. That’s why I should be excited and rooting right along with Cubs Nation as they set their sights on their first World Series title since 1908. But I just can’t get into it. Why? Because their owner, the Ricketts family, has done more to kill constitutional conservative campaigns this election cycle than just about any group in America. Who are the Ricketts and how are they protecting Big Government RINOs...
  • The year Vin Scully was unhappy about reduced role on network television coverage of World Series

    Awful Announcing ^ | October 24, 2016 | David J. Halberstam
    Full title: The year Vin Scully was unhappy about his reduced role on network television coverage of the World Series In the early years of network television, the participating World Series teams each nominated one of their announcers to broadcast the games on NBC. The two men would usually split the play-by-play. This practice gave national viewers the opportunity each year to sample legendary local voices like Russ Hodges, Mel Allen, Red Barber, Bob Prince, Jack Brickhouse, and Harry Caray. With this setup in place, Vin Scully correctly assumed that he would announce the World Series on network television in...

Game 1, 1986 lost by 1, 2915 lost by 1 Game 2, 1986 lost by 6, 2015 lost by 6Game 3, 1986 won by six, 2015 won by six It's Halloween, it's spooky, and we have a Series.

    Texas Senator, constitutional conservative, and GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz caught the attention of many Americans, pundits, and debaters with his powerful performance at the Wednesday night GOP presidential debate on CNBC. The moderators on CNBC did not conduct a debate, they were participating in a character assassination and shaming act. After he had finally had enough, Ted Cruz showed his incredible auditory memory skills in an epic and beautiful excoriation of not only the CNBC moderators, but of the Democrat Media Complex in general.That moment made Cruz the talk not only in media circles, but it was the...

  • Parallel lives of the Mets and Hillary Clinton (idiotic hard-fighting underdog analogy)

    10/24/2015 7:24:16 AM PDT · by dead · 4 replies
    There were moments when it didn't look like the Mets or Hillary Rodham Clinton would last the summer. This wasn't particularly surprising for Mets fans, who are used to broken hearts. Sure, there was talk of 90 wins back in spring training and the season got off to a fast start. But Mets fans have been there before -- a few injuries, the ominous word "rebuilding," and a trade deadline approaching with no sign of arriving help. Great young pitching, everyone said. Pack it in for 2016. And Clinton: From Yankee-like front-runner dominance, she fell prey to two words that...
  • On Your Mark: The Chicago Cubs will win the World Series, per Marty McFly

    www.myrtlebeachonline.com ^ | October 12, 2015 | By Jeff Nowak
    It’s beginning to seem like Marty McFly may have been onto something. The Cubs sure are an interesting team to watch. Nothing demonstrates that point more effectively than mad-hatter manager Joe Maddon calling for two suicide squeezes in the second inning on Saturday, en route to a 6-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Now, if you’re like me, you wonder why this isn’t always the play with a runner on third and fewer than two outs. I’ve almost never seen it played correctly by opposing defenses, and isn’t it more reliable than a fly ball to the outfield? But...

    JRW Supporters Suggest Decision To Take Title Racially Motivated February 11, 2015 2:58 PM (CBS) – There are accusations that racism was behind the decision by Little League International to strip the Jackie Robinson West team of the national title over cheating by the adults who run the team. “We know that we’re champions, our parents know that we’re champions and the team’s parents know we’re champions and Chicago knows we’re champions,” said JRW catcher Brandon Green. Green said the players did nothing wrong as he stood with his mother, Rev. Jesse Jackson and Fr. Michael Pfleger at the headquarters...

    I know baseball doesn't occupy the same level of pre-eminence that it may have had fifty years ago, but it is the championship, and it still a great game. Royals up 3-0 in the sixth. Great defense all around.
