Just heard there were 40 million viewers.

First for me. I watched all of six of the games and a good chunk of the other.

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/world-series-game-7-scores-40-million-viewers-most-in-25-years-184417462.html



RE: Game 7

The only two games to surpass it are Games 6 and 7 of the 1991 World Series between the Atlanta Braves and the Minnesota Twins. Game 6 of that series pulled in 40.8 million viewers, and Game 7 had 50.3 million, and that last number seems insane. Though to be honest, 40 million is pretty insane.

Dodgers - HaHaHaHa! No starters, no bullpen, no hitting - shows you how
weak the NL West and East are.

So who did all the rest of the (96? to 120?) balls go to?

One on the right went to owner, one on the left in Rizzo's pizza shop?

What goes inside of those hacky saks?

We were playing hacky sack in front of the Tuolumne meadows store one summer.

A whole bunch a Harley motorcycle bikers came riding in the parking lot and as the hacky sack got kicked at the feet of one biker.

The biker asked "What goes inside of these things" as he picked it up.?

Bachar says to him ... "Ground up Harley parts" ......

Well if you don't ask the right questions, you don't get the good answers. Good story hB.

But as long as we have an expert on baord, who was holding the bag here?

Just to to keep things in proper perspective


The Ricketts family, who purchased the Cubs for $845 million in 2009, along with Wrigley Field and a minority share in Comcast SportsNet Chicago, could see the value of those assets rise to around $4 billion by 2020,

Wrigley family wasn't dumb. I know. I went grunion hunting (why isn't it fishing?) with some of them at the Coronado Hotel beach in the 1950's.

However, sometimes their timing was off.

Each of those five million non-rioters got one of these Chiclets Goma de Mascar:



So the entire population of Chicago plus another 2.3 million showed up.

Did the out-of-towners get free gum or did you have to show local ID? literacy test?

If you get bored with politics, try Googling "Cubs blueprint"

optionally include a city of your preference.


So while itís a nice marketing technique to try to link the Padres to the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs, the Padres are not following their blueprint. Iím sure theyíd like to but unless Uncle Ron is getting ready to sign the two top free agents in consecutive years and commit $500M+ to free agents, it doesnít look like thatís the path this club is going down. And minus multiple important, highly paid contributors like Jon Lester, John Lackey, Dexter Fowler, and Ben Zobrist, the Cubs arenít a World Champion.
