Colby Cosh: "I had the pleasure of hearing the Chicago Cubs clinch a playoff spot this afternoon. People are starting to get excited at the still-remote possibility of a Cubs-Red Sox World Series, which would create beautiful bedlam on this continent.... If we can arrange to have the Series feature two very old franchises still in their original towns (it's no coincidence that they are often described as 'storied') which are also the two most notable hard-luck organizations in all of North American sports, well, that would be just real cool, and I think we would all remember it for a very long time."

FYI: The Cubs haven't won the World Series since 1908. And owing to "The Curse of the Bambino," the Red Sox haven't won a World Series since 1918, when they defeated.... the Chicago Cubs.
