Cubs v Sox. Who's going?

I'm going Friday and Saturday at Wrigley. I'm so jazzed up for this. We are going to send those fools back to the South Side.

(sorry, not so good at talkin' trash)

You got lucky that time. But it's always a crap shoot to try to get tix at last minute.

I heard a great suggestion on the radio today. At the game, Jerry Manuel should have Sosa's bat inspected.

Somebody was dumb enough to sell you tickets to the Clemens game for face value? Strange.

Not everyone is a scalper. Some people are Cubs fans that just help out Cubs fans. Every ticket I dump for games, I dump at face regardless of the teams. (especially Cubs games)

Cant' wait for this series to start. I really think the sox are gonna come out and play together, and start turning the season around after this...

I can't wait to see valetin/sosa, after valetin openly was throwing shots at sosa again. I dont' remeber exactly his comments, but it was sorta like, why bother using a corked bat, when you're going 1 for 4 with 3 strikeouts..

Sox got buerhle and colon going this weekend, and cubs don't have wood or prior so I give the nudge to them. Plus Carlos Lee has sick stats at wrigley...

Not going up to wrigley, but will be attending all 3 at good ol... comisky.

I agree I"ve picked up cubs tickets day of for face against good teams, and half the time get them for free after the game starts, while hanging out at murphys.

There isn't anything 'good' about Comiskey.

I'm liking the way things are going thus far.

Sox up 12-1 after.. It's a great day to be alive.

If only I was there

Round 1: Sox 12, Cubs 3

Well, that was a laugher if I've ever seen one.

Tickets are available for next Friday's game at Comiskey - they just released 2,000 tickets today on Ticketmaster. I can't go, but hopefully tickets will be available tomorrow for next Saturday's game.

Round 2: Sox 7, Cubs 6.

This must be more heartbreaking than yesterday for Cubs fans.

Indeed it was--I keep hoping Wendell Kim will tear his rotator cuff and STOP SENDING MEN HOME WHEN THE SITUATION SAYS IT'S NOT WORTH IT and THE ODDS THEY SCORE ARE VERY POOR. But the guy must have an incredibly strong shoulder, and he keeps waving them home, to be thrown out.

Round 3: Sox 1, Cubs 2

Cubs salvage a game in what turned out to be a typical Sox loss.

If Valentin got that throw near the plate in the 8th I think Wendell Kim would be looking for a new job right about now.

This is the 9th time the game was won in the last at bat for the series all-time.

If the home plate umpire gave Colon the same strike zone as Zambrano, the game would have been over sooner. Seriously man, even Stoney and Chipper had a hard time justifying some of those calls.
