Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

wrigley field from right bleachersTonight’s game is a national Fox game, which is cool if you’re in the right region for it. If you’re not, even blacks you out from this one (hooray Pirates v. Reds for me! … though if the Cubs keep winning, then a Pirates/Reds match-up actually would be of considerable interest to me).

Speaking of the Cubs winning, they’re going for number six in a row this evening. That would be sweet, and they’ve got the right guy – Jeff Samardzija – on the mound to pull it off.
