Wow! While most years I feel pretty neutral about the World Series (unless, of course, the Royals are in it), this year, I must confess, I will be rooting for the Cubs. Part of the reason lies in the fact that they will be facing off against the Indians, and if the Royals can’t win the Series, then I would prefer that nobody else in the AL Central win it. Also, the historian in me can’t help but get excited about the fact that, this year, I may have the opportunity to see a huge bit of baseball history. True, both teams have had quite a World Series drought, but the one that Chicago finds itself up against is one of legendary proportions. Go Cubs!
