The Chicago Cubs have won the World Series. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria! We break our PineCast silence to break down what turned out to be a pretty good World Series, and a better Game 7. And a quick preview of what this means for the St. Louis Cardinals going forward. Plus we preview our weekend NFL picks.
The St. Louis Cardinals 2016 season is over much earlier than it has been in the last 6 years. For the first time since 2010 St. Louis baseball fans have no rooting interest headed into the MLB playoffs. That leaves a pretty big hole to fill during October baseball. And there’s no clear cut team to pick
Let’s break down the teams remaining in the hunt for the World Series.
Some enterprising Chicagoan dropped a goat’s head off at Wrigley Field for Cubs’ owner Tom Ricketts Wednesday afternoon. Apparently killing goats and delivering them to Wrigley Field has become the go-to curse breaker in Chicago, as just back in 2009 a dead goat was found hanging on the statue of Harry Caray. And also in 2007. All of this of course stems from the famous Curse of the Billy Goat. Legend has it that the owner of the Billy Goat Tavern cursed the Cubs to forever lose when he was asked to leave Wrigley Field because his pet goat’s odor was bothering the other fans. Goats have got to be pulling for the Cubs to win a World Series soon so they can get back to eating garbage without looking over their shoulder. Fun fact: As of this writing, Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles has 5 less RBIs than the entire Cubs team! So maybe the goats could feed off the level of play in Chicago.
