“@chicagobars: CPD has closed pedestrian entry to Clark Street at Newport/Sheffield. If you’re not already at those bars you likely ain’t getting near them”

Everybody's too pumped at riggly tonight.
The crowd is cheering like every Cubs ball off the bat is gone, even before Contreras' shot. Its a byproduct of their success coupled with tickets for these games being out of reach for your average fans. I suspect many at Wrigley tonight are newer or bandwagon Cubs fans which is a shame for the die-hards. Its not unique to them, of course. Its happened in every city where a team starts winning. But it makes watching games like this tough because routine fly balls are all gone until they land in the outfielder's mitt.

I am watching with the missus and a friend, and I agree. They are jumping off the couch at fly balls and fouls, and I'm looking at them. Staying at my lucky spot now on the stairs, for my BFF the Cubs fan. Amateurs!

Is anyone else getting political commercials in between innings? I live in CA so it's kind of abnormal for us.

Good luck for him and Blundota. I harbor no ill will to diehard Cubs fans and if they make it, I will be happy for them as well as Theo & his front office crew, Lester, Gray Wolf and the kids. As I said earlier, the only reasons to dislike Chicago are Maddon and Chapman.
