The words “if necessary” add a layer of unpredictability to ticket sales that doesn’t exist during the regular season. Regular season schedules are released months in advance, and airfare and hotel accommodations can be taken care of months in advance. If someone has a business trip to Seattle in the Spring, for example, and wants to take in a game at Safeco Field, cialisfrance24.com there’s now plenty of lead time to make that happen.
This weekend is something that a sizable part of Chicago has waited for 71 years to see happen.
Some Philadelphia sports fan set down his sour grapes long enough to call into a national sports talk show on Thursday night, and lament that Cubs fans who claim to have waited “all their life” for this moment are forgetting about the White Sox in the World Series back in 2005. That shows how little a Philly fan knows about baseball in Chicago.
With the World Series kicking off in Cleveland on Tuesday night, it’s as good a time as any to consider how different baseball’s championship is from football. Why football? Because its title game has become synonymous with a really big event. It’s so big the NFL aggressively protects against unauthorized use of the term. Hopefully baseball is a bit more relaxed than that.
