I feel for you. I bet it was an extremely long off-season for Sox fans considering they didn't even make the post-season. But hey, they have a $200 million payroll now so that should count for something.  :P

Bartman is a species of Marlin, isn't it?  :D

No shame losing to the '03 World Champions.

Isn't there a "Cubs' Law" or something that states that any forum thread about Baseball will inevitably degenerate into either 1. Red Sox v. Yankees mudslinging or 2. talking about how bad the Cubs are?

I believe we are now 2-1, so NYAH! If we keep this up we'll be over .750 for the rest of the season!

I'm not really into baseball or a huge statistical genius, but I believe if you keep that up you'll be 108-54, or about .667 for the season.  Which is less than .750 in the US, I'm not sure how the metric version works out in France ;)

But like I said, I'm not really into baseball so maybe I'm missing something :) ;D

Yes. using Metric the Cubs win more games.

It's because you double it and add 30, right?  I knew I understood the metric system. ;D

Mmmmm...this humble pie is really good.  :D

Not quite ready to start the "Wait 'til next year" chant, but with the NFL in limbo, they better find their game soon!

If you live in Boston or NYC you might care about Red Sox vs Yankees, but the rest of us rate it right up there with watching paint dry.  Besides, they're American League (see my comment above).

I hope all those greedy F---s in the NFL don't ruin it for us fans.  Maybe we should form a fans' union and strke the NFL.

It's the Mets and the Phillies for the next three days and a friend offered me tickets for tomorrow's night game 1st base side 15th row. I'm stoked!

GO PHILS!
