No Cubs baseball tonight, but that didn’t stop a little “Go Cubs Go” from being played at a ballpark. Not Wrigley Field, but SunTrust Park in Atlanta …
The SunTrust Park organist is playing "Go Cubs Go" as Bryce Harper comes to bat.

Whether the trolling there is that the Cubs beat the Nationals in the NLDS, or that Harper-to-the-Cubs rumors and speculation have already been rampant for months, it doesn’t matter to me. I am going to assume the answer is “both” and both of those things make me wear a devilish grin.
Harper, who hit his FOURTH homer of the season already tonight (as teams and fans continue to fail to successfully troll him), is set to be a free agent at the end of this season. And, at age 26, he’s going to get an insane contract from some team. Maybe the Cubs. Maybe not.
In any case, the Braves trolling gave me a chance to remember the NLDS win, so you can enjoy it with me:
