Cubs and Indians in the World Series. Ohio State losing. What's the world coming to?!

Pigs flying! Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes... The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

It's Terry Francona vs. Theo Epstein - whoever wins is assured going to the Hall of Fame

Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn should throw the ceremonial first pitch in that Cleveland stadium - the same night and across the street where LeBron and the Cavs will put up the championship banner on the court

With all respect to baseball fans, the World Series moniker should be change to The Canada/USA Series or to The Baseball Superbowl ... the world does not get to compete in the series.

Congratulations to the Cubs. Faithful fans have waited too long. Maybe I had a hand in their victory. LOL

Have a listen. I shared this on the Chicago Cubs Fanzone site.

@kamejima47 if you can understand where the game was invented then maybe you can understand why it's called the World Series. Don't get caught up in names just enjoy the game and especially this Cubs moment. You are so stuck on who named the islands first this is baseball not politics.

With all respect due, please do get over yourself. You of course realize that "Super Bowl" is a brand name, just like "World Series" was way back at the turn of the century, and not any kind of geographically meaningful adjective? Of course you do. They could call it the Chopped Liver Series, but why would they? Major League Baseball is under no obligation to indulge the pedantic neuroses and insecurities of the rest of the world.

Finally! Jack Brickhouse & Harry Caray must be dancing in heaven right now.

Go Cubbies!

"World Series" was invented when baseball is pretty much played only in N. America.

The rest of the world didn't play baseball until afterwards.

Baseball is big on tradition --they hardly ever change anything-- mainly to make sure that stats from 100 years ago is still comparable to stats of today.

So don't expect anything.
