I’ve been hoping for a cross-town series. Will 100 years be the end of jinx for the Cubs?

When I grew up in Chicago I always thought the cross town classic was the coward’s way of saying that would never happen. Oh, that it would.

My roomates are cubs fans, and my best friend who’s apartment is in the same building is a Sox fan, and I’m a sox fan… it’d be intense.
Go White Sox!

No!!!!!
Half of my family are Cubs fans, the other half are Sox fans.
I can just imagine what the arguments would be like!
I think I’ll just go out of town!!!
(Go Sox!)

Sorry to break it to you Scot, Manny and my L.A. Dodgers are gonna send the Cubbies home again early…perhaps it will be until 2108?

Why not? That must mean the Sox won last night? It would be interesting for Chicago and really for the entire country, I think. Would be nice to see it go to seven games, but since the Sox recently won a Series, I think, let the Cubs pull out game seven.

Having the White Sox in the Series would be like the older sibling also receiving an honor at the same time the younger sibling finally receives an honor. The White Sox had their glory 3 years ago. All of Chicago and Cubs fans deserve the honor without the White Sox hanging around.

I’m also rooting for the same outcome – a Dodger victory!

My coworker thinks he is a bigger Cubs fan than I am. NOT! He also says he is “bi-Sox-ual” and roots for both teams. I have to root for the Cubs first.

I would love to see ChiCubs vs. ChiSox. Amazing. Even then, I’d be happy with either team winning. I’d like to see the Cubs win on the 100th Anniversary of their last WS win. But Griffey and Thome getting a WS ring wouldn’t be bad either.

As agents of new creation I think we should pray against a North/South side World Series. They would burn the city down (they, of course, being the South side)!

Cubs-Sox would be a good series. Unfortunately it won’t happen, since the Phillies are going to eliminate the Cubbies!

Yeah, I gotta say no…a Red Sox v. Cubs series would be great…especially with the Red Sox winning again.
Sam, you can have your Manny. Soon (assuming he stays in LA) you’ll feel differently. He’s kinda like the puppy that chews the furniture and piddles on the rug. It’s cute for the first 3 months or so. When he’ 130 pounds, well, somehow it’s not so cute anymore.

The Cubs and the Rays have the most interesting stories, for sure. But I can’t root against LA. Go Dodgers, Go Angels. I’m hoping for a freeway series.

Wouldn’t it be nice if … Scot posted on why he moved his blog to belief.net, and a little about belief.net (the juicy stuff about their marketing strategy and appeal to bloggers). Why would you go from a blog with no “blogmercials” to one with them? (this couldn’t be what your readers wanted, but I’m sure there was something “in it” for you) Why would you go from a blog with your own colors and design to a cookie cutter blog with a totalitarian decor?
Maybe you already did that, but if so … I missed it.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science.

The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.)
