Cubs/Indians In Historic World Series, Ohio State Loss Causes Drop In Poll, Fitzpatrick Angry In Jets Win, Seahawks/Cardinals Yawn Fest


cubsThe Chicago Cubs beat the LA Dodgers Saturday night and are now headed to the World Series to take on the Cleveland Indians. This World Series promises to be one for the ages. The Indians haven’t won the big one since 1948, while the Cubs haven’t been in the World Series for 71 years and haven’t won since 1908. The best of seven series begins Tuesday at 8:00 pm ET.


In college football, the mighty Ohio State lost to Penn State 21-24 dropping them to #8 in the Coaches Poll (from a previous #2). Undefeated Alabama remains at #1, while the undefeated Michigan Wolverines jumped to #2.

In the NFL, the New York Jets beat the Baltimore Ravens after QB Ryan Fitzpatrick entered the game for an injured Geno Smith. Fitzpatrick was benched last week, so when he was called back in to finish this game, he was admittedly angry. He said,  “The biggest thing in this game, in order to last, is to have belief in yourself, because when the owner stops believing in you, the GM stops believing in you, and the coaches stop believing in you, sometimes all you have is yourself.” He went on to say, “I probably play better as an underdog, pissed off, so going forward, yeah, I’ll be pissed off,” Jets 24, Ravens 16.

In what many consider the worst game of the weekend (and the season so far), the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals both missed two field goals in overtime to tie the game 6-6. The game was a yawn fest from the beginning with the Seahawks punting on their first nine possessions.
