LSU contacted Larry Fedora? Huh. Maybe if Fedora gets poached by LSU, Carolina can pick up their discarded Les Miles.

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all! Today, I am thankful for the Cubs World Series win and the Hurricanes finally starting to get their ish together; especially the kids on defense and Cam Ward. Well, those things and my wife and kid.

Cubs Win World Series

Some things I did not know until just now:
- The final pitchers for each team went to the same high school.
- When the Cleveland baseball team went to their clubhouse during the rain delay, it was prepped for a champagne celebration, plastic sheets and all.

Cubs Win World Series

Definitely the moment of the game last night. Anthony Rizzo laughing and letting David Ross what an emotional wreck he is.

Cubs Win World Series

Outside Wrigley as the Cubs won.

That was pretty much the scene inside my head as well. I couldn't imagine being in my then girlfriend's apartment on Addison last night. Her apartment is right next to Wrigley Field (and the Addison stop). I also can't imagine how much garbage and vomit are on that street right. Maybe all of the public urination washed it all away, though. In summary, the Cubs winning the World Series is fucking incredible.

When I first saw the photo, I was, like, "Is that Don Rickles? Nah, can't be, he died a long time ago." But here we are, a world with Don Rickles still kickin it. And with Bob Newhart.

On Saturday night, I was reduced to, "Oh well, at the Cubs *made* the World Series. That in of itself is pretty close to a miracle. They'll get back there next season." Now look at me; all a mess about them being in game seven. Can't touch my Addison Russell jersey because when I do, they lose. When I do avoid it, the dude is hitting grand slams.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have had the lead in the third period for every single one of their five games this season. They have just one win

Cubs Beat Dodgers, Head to the World Series for the First Time in 70 Years

Yeah, the only way I got to watch those games was by getting someone else's cable login. But hey, I see Fox's view on this. It's not like the series was played by the #2 and #3 media markets in the country or anything. Plus, there weren't any compelling stories for either of those teams, like, one of them not making a World Series in 70+ years.

Thanks grum!

'm 5'11", 170lbs, and my shoulders are a bit broader than expected for my size. I wear a "L" Jays jersey from 5 years ago quite comfortably, but if I was just a LITTLE bit taller or broader, it might be considered "restricting". I wear a t-shirt underneath it (for comfort) and have no problems.

That's what tells me to go with the size that I should probably go with. I'm a tiny bit shorter and a kinda bit bigger around, so I'll go with the XL especially since I'll be wearing a t-shirt under the jersey.

I have my eye on this.

Question for you team jersey wearers:
I'm thinking of getting a Cubs jersey and want to know about sizing. If you wear an XL or L or M or whatever size t-shirt, would you get the same size jersey? Are they comparable sizes or are baseball jerseys larger than t-shirts? For example, is a size L baseball jersey the same as an L sized t-shirt or XL sized t-shirt?
I know it seems like a weird question, but before I spend a fair amount of coinage on something like this, I need to know about the sizing. Thanks!

Has there been a draft yet? The season starts today. I suppose, though, that it really doesn't matter when our draft is compared to when the season starts.

North Carolina here. Man, that was a lot of rain. I mean, a *lot* of rain. We're good now, for the most part in the Triangle. Though, I know quite a few people that lost power during the storm yesterday and still are without it. There's even a few that are looking at downed trees in their yard and/or on their house.
The worst part of the state is down east. Really bad flooding right now. Rivers and dams cresting and will be for the next day or so.
