Yes, it is a story primarily about the cubs, but for once I think it is something that we aren't used to...

What I don't know is whether this will serve to toughen up the Cubs in a pennant race, so they don't, say, fall apart just because some mope in the stands tries to catch a foul ball. The fear is that maybe the constant pressure will lead to their collapse and exhaustion in the end.

You cannot help but to notice the sheer joy and life in the clubhouse on the South Side. The Sox have become the fun guys.

How about that? Maybe things are changing in this town

Yeah right, but they will jump on the bandwagon and write a bunch of stories while trying to cover up the Flubs ckoking this year.

Glad to hear it, screw the media though, but more important a big FU to all those that say comraderie means crap in pro soprts. Yeah you can buy a team and have 25 guys instantly bolt in 25 directions after a game and on occasion still win, but 25 guys that want to hang out, have fun and be with each other easily adds 10 wins to the club.

Very well put. Chemistry means a ton, and IMO anyone who has played on a team understands that.
