The diamond dandies think the Chicago Cubs will make the playoffs. If that happens, walkmans will be banned at Wrigley.


If the NorthSiders advance to the World Series this season, the city of Chicago will come unglued.

Enough about the 107-year run of futility and high hopes of C-Cub fans. Let's look at the longest game ever for the I-Cubs. They lost 6-4 to the Oklahoma City Dodgers on Tuesday night in 19 innings.

That means the Des Moinesers' elimination number is down to one. A loss by the I-Cubs or a win in any of the final six games for the OKD and it's no playoff action in our fair Cap City.

There's no crying in baseball, Des Moines.
