Re: Championship Rings...Who gets them?

Billy and Ryne are both ambassadors for the Cubs so I suspect they will get rings like many employees will. I read an article about how Neil Ramirez and Federovic will be getting rings so I'm assuming everyone who appeared for the team will.

Re: Bears offseason

The bear rightfully fired lovie 6 years ago for winning, but not frequently enough. And now 3 years into Ryan Pac's tenure the quarterback depth chart is mike Glennon and Mark Sanchez. Amazing I keep telling myself: Not all Chicago teams can be great at the same time. 2/4 ain't bad. Dammit I want a...

Re: Politics & Current Events

He's had his travel ban shot down twice in court, had his national security advisor resign, and had other choices turn down the position. I understand the concern...and it could pass. But Trump has had some pretty high profile losses. Agreed, but I think this would be a political death if what he i...

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

Gonzaga, Xavier, and South Carolina have never made a Final Four, let alone a title game. Baylor hasn't made a Final Four since 1950. This year was South Carolina's first tourney wins since 1973, and they've never advanced past this round. I thought I read that SC had never even made a sweet 16 unt...

He did only pitch 11 innings in the series, but he was pretty damn good. I think if he came on in relief in game 7 and shut the Indians down to win the WS, he probably would have.

Yes but that didn't take into account Oregons injury so I had no choice but to remain hopeful.

Of course it also didn't account for Wagner to play his worst game since his freshman year

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

Bummer ending for you UMFan, but you kinda got the shot you wanted there at the end. Nice run Cubs won the World Series 2 killer offensive rebounds by Oregon that shouldn't have happened. Though when we took the 3 point lead with 2 mins left it was ours but just couldn't score those last 2 points. ...

Yeah. Ultimately for the long-term future of the franchise, it's better that we won it under Theo/Jed than we would have been if we won a "lightning in a bottle" title under Hendry like the White Sox did, but there will always be a part of me that loves the 03 and 07/08 teams and wishes t...
