2. It was a great game.

It brings back memories of the 68 World Series when my beloved Tigers won, also after being down 3-1.

That was Al Kaline's last season. He held court in right field for years, and no opponent dared to tag up at third on a fly ball deep to right while he was there. He threw more than a few strikes from that right field wall. If you tried to tag, you would be out with an umpire's double pumper, especially if Bill Freehan was at the plate.

But last night was the second best seventh game I ever watched.

Go Cubbies!

BTW, here's about Kaline.

3. Extra innings in game 7 has only happened 5 times

Ironically the last time it happened in 1997, Cleveland also lost.

5. Anyone who says baseball is boring could be swayed by that game.

And kudos to the players and fans on both sides for respecting the game and each other. There are a few teams out there that just don't know how to behave.

9. Anyone who says sports like baseball are boring don't really like sports

For a true sports fan, every sport is interesting. As a kid, I would watch pro bowlers tour and golf and find it just as engaging and engrossing as the 3 biggies. I don't get people who view scoring as the goal, and the more scoring, the better. So not the point. Once you can appreciate the drama of a scoreless soccer game, or a 4 hour baseball game, then you'll truly appreciate what sports are really about.
