    Cubs Thrillers and Killers of the 2000's

    Desipio takes a look a look back at some of the best moments of the decade, along with some of the most soul-crushing. It only covers the years where they were in contention, or at least sort of in contention.

    I'm already depressed watching it snow when I should be in Phoenix right now and then you have to go post that. I can't believe I read the 2003 one, that is like getting kicked in the nuts again.

    Re: Cubs Thrillers and Killers of the 2000's

    I was at the last game of that 5 game labor day series between the Cubs and Cards in 2003. All I can say is that it was the most electric atmosphere I had ever experienced in a major league ballpark. I remember watching that game they talked about(it was the day before the game I went to)at the ESPN Zone downtown. That place went nuts when they won and the bartender even gave out $2.00 draws (when compared to the normal $7.00 draws it was the equivalent to them giving beer away).
    Anyway, the game the next day was unreal. I remember Alou got ejected from the game early on for arguing balls and strikes. The game was back and forth all day. I believe the lead changed four maybe five times. In the end the Cubs prevailed and Houston lost that day as well putting the Cubs into first for good.


    Watch it man there's a beverage here!
