Comments: Cubs Win! Cubs Win!

I used to feel the same way, but it was a long hot summer, and there was nothing better to do, then I started to follow the box scores ... and they sucked me right back in! I'll probably never keep track of MLB like I do with the NFL, but baseball has its moments.

Would a World Series game in Wrigley bring you back in, a little?

I'll watch and I hope they win, but I won't be back.

It's all based on anecdotal evidence, but St Louis folks tend to have taken the strike worse than other places.

I feel the same way.

I guess I'm sort of fortunate to have been overseas in the navy during that time. I have a four-year gap in all my sports knowledge -- I not only couldn't watch any games, but the box scores couldn't compete with the Filipinas for my attention -- so for me it's as though the strike season never happened. Go Cubs!

I basically gave up on MLB about 1980. Wouldn't mind seeing a minor-league baseball team locate somewhere within driving distance though. I don't envy places like Omaha and Billings often but I do for their ball teams. You can still love minor-league baseball; you can't love the bigs anymore.
