CRACK THE CHAMPAGNE IN CHICAGO - ANNIVERSARY TIME! THE NEW EDITOR reminds us that today is a very, very special day in Chicago:
“Double Anniversary Day for The North Side Juggernaut. 99 years ago today, the Chicago Cubs beat the Detroit Tigers, 2-0, winning the World Series 4 games to 1 for their second, second consecutive, and last world championship.
“Four years ago today, the Chicago Cubs, up 3 games to 2 in the National League Championship Series, melted down in the eighth inning of Game Six — just five outs away from their first World Series since 1945 — giving up 8 runs in a loss to the Florida Marlins.
“Steve Bartman was at the game.”
