What two teams played in the first intra-city Workd Series.

Bonus question: What was the year?
Double Bonus: Who won the series?
Triple bonus: How many hamburgers did I eat last night?
Quadruple bonus: What is my weight, in stones, after said potential eating?
Pentuple bonus: Nothing here, I just wanted to use pentuple.

1906

Really.  You want me to say who won the series?  You want me to do anything beyond thinking about that wretched pathetic franchise?

I will go with two and assume they were big

8-8.5

That's what your mother told me last night, Trebek

 Cubs/Sox is correct (stupid softball questions).

1906 is right, yes the Sox won, two is not right, you really think I only weigh 115-120 pounds?

 

Ya, baby:

Like every NBA and NFL playoff game, that 1906 baseball world series was fixed, so there is really no need to discuss it.    To make up for that fix, the league allowed the Cubs to win the next two years (though they didn't do any make up fixing in favor of the Cubs).  Those 2  consecutive championships however, were so distasteful to mlb and their east coast home offices, they swore the Cubs would never ever ever be allowed to win another one.  All incoming officials are still required to take and uphold that oath.
 
To this day, no game in MLB history has ever been fixed in favor of the Cubs.  However, exactly 1,998 have been proven to be fixed against them.  There have likely been many more that haven't been proven yet.
 
5 hamburgers.
145 large stones

Okay, I'm just a kid and while I can hold my own with modern knowledge, I really have a terrible understanding of the history of the game... This is a joke, right?

 

Edit: I'm talking more about the last paragraph, btw. I know you guys can completely mess with me right now, and it's got to be tempting, but please be honest haha.

Actually, Selig saw early we were going to be a great team in 2007 & 2008. That is why he sent the Brewers over to the NL. He was trying to play a little havoc on the team putting 6 teams in one division. He also put a lot of money into Alderman Tunney's campaign fund so that we would have to continue to play day games.

Latest reports I saw have Selig, prior to his resignation after the 2014 season, moving the Tigers to the NLC and the Brewers to the ALC.

This was after a certain someone, not to be named by me, was seen shopping the day before.
