    Go Cubs go. Go Cubs go. Hey Chicago what do you say? The Cubs are going to win today

    Is this their year? I'm toying with the idea of going to the World Series if they make it. I'm trying to wrap my mind around how much a ticket might cost.

    I do not have a ticket yet for the World Series, but I do have a motel reservation, and am taking my dad with me. Even if I do not get into the game just to be around the atmosphere is going to be something else.

    I've thought about it as well, but I don't think it's worth it when you consider the likelihood of seeing a loss is about 40%.

    $2000 or so and you might go away sad.

    As a White Sox fan...I encourage you to enjoy every second of it...if it happens! It is an awesome feeling! Ask any White Sox fan you know...it is a rush!

    I just wanted to post and say that in my opinion the 'Go Cubs Go' song is quite possibly the worst song ever written. It truly makes me cringe every time I hear it.

    I think if I was a Cubs fan I would totally embarrassed that they play that song.

    Just....IMHO....

    Curious to see what you guys all think.

    While I will agree it isn't the greatest song ever written I still love it.

    Especially when my 3 yr old sings it after a Cubs victory.

    well apparently you havent seen a cubs home game because 40,000+ people sure arent embarassed of singing it at the top of their lungs after every win. i think its a great song, and just another thing that makes the cubbies great. "all the way" is a pretty awesome song too


    ALL IN

    I can imagine that WS tickets in Wrigley are going to cost a pretty penny. Wish I had made it to a game this year though, been a couple years since I was last at Wrigley.


    Go Cubs Go!

    That must be a short list...things that make the cubbies great! LOL...just kidding kind of...I have been a White Sox fan since '77 so I couldn't let that go by!

    Chicago and LA...lots of baseball excitement in those two cities right now! Although does LA get excited about anything in sports?

    Too bad it's going to be the Brwers and Devil Rays in the series

    If that happens the president of Fox Sports will jump off of a building! That would KILL national interest in the World Series...even if that series went 7 games and was well-played!

    Didn't say you would or should care! I basically stated few people outside of Milwaukee and Tampa (maybe even in Tampa) would care! That shouldn't impact a fan of either team. I just said that it would kill national interest in the World Series. Check out the ratings for the 2005 World Series that involved my beloved White Sox...horrible ratings! Didn't impact the joy I got out of it one bit!

    I went to a game early in April... And... I will be at the game Thursday night... My first night game, and my first playoff game.
