If you can think of something to talk about that is not related to knives, discuss it here.

Thanks Jerry. After watching this team over the last month and a half, I can't wait to see what next year brings.

Cubs must have shipped their bats to Milwaukee a day early. Lost to Tampa Bay, 1-8.

I was mis-informed, not an unheard of thing with me. ::facepalm:: The Phils did not sweep last night. An afternoon game today. 2 2 tie mid game. Not entirely a bad thing. ::tu::

WOW!!! What an exciting win by the Cubs in extra innings! Worth staying up for. Down to our last out in the 9th and Javy comes through and we tie the game. KB in the 10th, 2 run dinger. Davis closes them out.

Looking like Nats/Cubs in the first round, Jerry. You should be happy about that. ::facepalm::

As my mother used to say, "There's many a slip twixt the cup and the lip." There are 9 games left, 6 of them against either the Brewers or the Cardinals. We'll know more about who's playing who on October 1st.

I don't think my heart can take too many more of the games like last night and tonight. Tonight, I think Milwaukee shot themselves in the foot when they gave out that free pass in the 10th.

Felt good to beat the Nats yesterday even though the front office is about to be in a state of open war with the Wilpons and Alderson taking on the media. What the **** is going on here?? Apparently the Wilpons don't want to spend any more money in the offseason, preferring to roll the dice with who we have and damn the injury torpedoes?

I don't want this politics garbage. I want my Amazins back. ::disgust::

::ds:: Quintana pitches a complete game shutout. Brewers only get three hits. Cubs win game four 5-0. Woo hoo baby. The magic number is 2.

On to St Louis tomorrow night for a four game series followed up by three with the Reds at home. Go get 'em troops.

Glad the Cubs are assuming their rightful position there Jerry. Who do you want to see in the post season to play against?

Phils beat Atlanta today to complement a close win by the Eagles over the Giants.

But Penn State and Iowa was a heckuva game last night. PS squeaked by in the last minute and a half. Good game.

I think I heard the Cubs will probably play the Nationals.
