Yeah Manny's one man show is great TV and usually upsets are great for viewers.
But Fox thought they had a Wrigley October.
They thought they had a once in a century World Series.
They thought they were going to have the attention and frenzy of 2003 and 2004.
And instead they have more than likely a Cubs three and out.
I mean if the Cubs had to collapse, why not in the World Series?
If the Cubs were going to have their next mind boggling, Billy Goat reminding face plant, couldn't it be AFTER Columbus day?
The Cubs would have steamrolled the Mets.
The Cubs would have beaten the Mets in 2. That's right... two!
The first two games would have been such a whuppin' that they would have forfeited game 3.
And TBS would have had Cubs/Mets and then Fox would have had Cubs/Dodgers.
Ad sales in Chicago... New York... Los Angeles...
And it's all done because the Mets couldn't hold a 2 1/2 game lead over 7 days.
And Cub fans might be entering century #2 in a few days!
Good job Mets.
