One of the best scrub games of all time is now on ESPN Classic. Game 5 NLCS. One of my all time favorite games! :scrubs

I can appreciate a Cubs loss (especially that one) as much as anyone else. But does it really count as a great moment when a weasel like Steve Garvey comes out on top?

Garvey wasn't well known as a weasel at the time. For that matter, I think people hold Ryne Sandberg in less esteem now than they did in 1984. The Padres overall represented goodness against Cubbie evil.

That Sunday, I was living about 170 Interstate 8 miles from Jack Murphy Stadium (they don't call it that anymore) and held a pair of tickets the Padres had printed for Game 1 of the 1984 World Series -- as if I needed any motivation to root against the Cubs. I saw the NLCS on a black-and-white television, but it was one of the best baseball weekends of my life -- certainly the best involving a National League team.
