Now that it is over, I can talk about it:
I root for both the Cubs and the White Sox. If they happen to be playing each other, I root for the Cubs. Unless it really, really, matters to the Sox and doesn’t at all matter to the Cubs (statistically). Then I would say nothing. But that would never happen – they play each other mid-summer.
I was hoping the Cubs would go all the way this year. I wasn’t expecting it. I have been saying, “This team is never going to break my heart again,” for a very long time. I want to say it started in 1984.
But with both the Cubs and the Sox in, there was an interesting conversation at work:
If the Cubs and Sox were in the Series together, and you had two decent tickets, what would be your price to sell as opposed to go to the game?
