While the White Sox are down in Florida preparing for their American League Division Series opener against the Rays, George Will is walking up an ancient ramp toward his luxury seat in a place he once described as a "pleasant purgatory." The Cubs are about to toy with your emotions again, starting a new postseason.
"What do you think of two Chicago teams in the same postseason for the first time in 102 years?" the noted Cubs fan and author is asked as he climbs.
"It's a shame there aren't three," he says."What if the Cubs and White Sox meet in the World Series?"
"If they wind up in the same World Series, it would be like the Civil War, only nastier," he says.
With that, he disappears into a sea of other Cubs fans, as the Wrigley clock shows 4:44 p.m. CT, and he settles in with so many others to watch Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the Dodgers.
