Thousands of fans
spilled into the street last night around Wrigleyville as the Cubs won the National League Central Division yesterday after finally claiming the title to qualify for the post season play-off's. The Cubs will go into the play-offs as one of the weakest teams but they will be followed by some the countries most passionate baseball fans. The whole away support thing doesn't really happen in this vast country except when the Cubs are in town.
It is said that 30,000 Cubs fans were at today's 4-0 victory
over the Reds in Cincinnati. The total crowd? 38,936. As a Charlton fan, I celebrate a corner but to witness Cubs' fans celebrate the smallest thing at a beer soaked Wrigley Field makes me only wander how crazy this town will go if, heaven forbid, it goes through the play-offs to win the world series for the first time since 1907.
