We’re at Wrigley Field talking about those lovable Cubs.  Farley’s happy and the Windy City is great until Ed interviews Sean Deveney, author of The Original Curse.  Deveney breaks the news that the 1918 Cubs taught the 1919 Black Sox how to throw a World Series.  Say it ain’t so Farley, say it ain’t so.  After the podcast, we hit the Red Line and head to the south side of Chicago in search of Chicago’s other baseball team and bad bad Leroy Brown.

The Mariners are hanging tough in the American League West and our PhD Committee is excited to be at beautiful SAFECO Field.  Let it rain.  Let it rain!
