Has anyone thought about the ramifications if this were to occur? Nostradamus may fulfill his prophecy after all....

A Cubs vs. Red Sox World Series would be amazing. Being a life-long Cubs fan I'll take "Cubs vs. (anyone)" in a World Series. Considering how passionate fans of each team are it would almost be a shame that one team - in this case the Red Sox - has to loose.


GO CUBS!!!!

Everyone be sure to read the story "The Last Pennant Before Armageddon" by W.P. Kinsella. It appears in one of his collections of short stories.

Kinda makes you hope for a Yankees / Marlins series.

Pete,

It would never be a shame for the Red Sox to lose. In fact, it brings great joy to my heart just to think about it.

I'm starting to worry that they might have found a bullpen somewhere, though. And I'm especially worried about the fact that Kim won't be playing this series. I'm hoping they're just saving him in case they need him to lose a big World Series game, like game 7 perhaps.

If it's Cubs/Red Sox, I think I'll have to sell part of my collection and fly to Chicago to see the Sox lose in person.

Go Cubs! (unless it's Cubs/Yankees)

-Ryan

If the Cubs and Red Sox meet, the whole Series will be played in Dead Ball Era ballparks. Talk about history, tradition and ghosts at those ballparks

I was a rabid Cubs fan till 1945 when my best friend, Dick Pollak, conviced me they weren't going anywhere.
Yes, guys, there actually WAS a 1945...
Kinsella is the guy who wrote the book that "Field of Dreams" (everyone's favorite baseball movie but mine) was based on.

It could be game 7, up 10 runs, 1 out left, 9th inning, and the Red Sox would still lose. Somewhere Bill Buckner is pulling his hair out...

then again, do Red Sox fans really want to win it all? They wouldn't have anything left to look forward to.

it's also ironic to receive "enlightenment" from collectors who have never opened a pack of cards containing gum....and those childhood memories - the smell of a freshly opened foil pack.

Carefully?

Do you really object to receiving "enlightenment" from me? First I heard of it...

who the first anonymous poster is at all (the one who said i was-um--at least 135 years old); I know who the second is--he's in love with Mastercard--but don't know what his age is (his emotional age is pretty
clear, but how long he's been on this planet isn't).
Guess you do. Sorry--I thought you were simply ignoring, or hadn't noticed--my distress.

And thanks again for the N162 Keefe! (could have pulled it out of a pack lo those many long years ago, but just wasn't lucky enough. Aside from the fact that I was born in 1935...)

What I meant, in my early post in this column, by "yeah, guys, there really WAS a 1945" was not that you are all too stupid to know it, or to know that it was the last time the Cubs were in the Series, but that--almost all of you not being born for another 20 to 35 years--it's just another happening in the past, like--1908 was the last time the Cubs WON the World Series. Except in '45, there were effectively no baseball cards (because of the war), whereas--all around 1908, there were nice, juicy ones, like Fancraze, Ramley, T206, etc. Moreover, the cards that came out in '47, '48 and '49 can't arguably hold a candle to those I mentioned, and others that followed immediately thereon. So probably to some of you, 1908 is more vivid than 1945!

I was ten years old in 1945, and lived in Chicago, and remember the ears glued to radios, the headlines. Atom bomb? Last years news...nobody took me to a game, but I had probably lost my glasses (which i did whenever I could), so I couldn't have seen anything anyway.
