    We just got this from the president of our division at work:

    "It's been 102 years since both Chicago baseball teams have played in the post season together! Teddy Roosevelt was President, the average wage for the American worker was 22 cents an hour, coffee was 15 cents a POUND, the American flag had only 45 stars, the population of Las Vegas, Nevada was only 30 and canned beer had not yet been introduced! Yes, it's been a long long time. Congratulations to the White Sox and their fans for the thrilling victory last night. And of course congratulations to the Cubs for winning their second straight Central Division title. Playoffs start tonight and with some luck we will see an all Chicago World Series later this month. Should we be fortunate to see that, I will personally host the Cubs pep rally in the hopes that we see a different outcome in the Series than 1906...when the Sox won the Championship. Of course the Cubs went on to win the 1907 and 1908 World Series after the Sox beat them in 1906. Yeah yeah yeah I know they haven't won it since....everybody is entitled to a bad century once in a while! Let's have some fun with the playoffs...decorate your cube, your office, your car, yourself in blue or black and root on your squad!

    Go Chicago....Cubs!"

    Just for fun, can we go ahead and play the rest of the games in the playoffs?

    Oh yeah. I didn't mean to make it sound like we had skipped to the World Series. Some people at my job say they hope it doesn't happen because if there are any problems it will look bad for our 2016 Olympic chances.

    I agree. I don't think having an all Chicago World Series would be a good thing. People act like idiots. So, I guess it will just have to be the Cubs this year.

    I can't see the whitesox making the series. Its defintely possible for the cubs. I see them facing the phillies in the nlcs which should be a great series.

    Haha yes I also heard that. The day is that much sweeter seeing the cubs going down in flames.
