Cubs/Cards… Feel the Rivalry

I walked into my son’s third-grade classroom two days ago to find his teacher wearing a genuine St Louis Cardinals jersey.  That was the day after the Cubs defeated the Cards 5-2.  I almost went up to give her heck about it but I decided to save my son the embarrassment. 

Closer examination revealed it had a big red “5” on the back.  I had to give her credit for that.

Aflac Trivia Question for that game:  Two pitchers drafted by the Cubs in 1984 have amassed over 500 wins in their career.  Who are they?  It’s an easy one.  Answer later.

The Cubs have just finished a yummy 2-1 series win over the Cards.  That puts them at 8-4 over them for the year.  If they can avoid a four-game sweep at home, they can win the season series against St Louis for the first time since 1995.  A friend and I were discussing this and his comment was “Now if we could only beat teams like Pittsburgh”. 

Aflac Trivia answer:  Greg Maddux and Jamie Moyer
