This was indeed a totally thrilling moment. I watched the last Cubs no-hitter (the Pappas one) as a 9-year-old and I was as excited last night as I was back then.

Tears? You guys need a World Series victory...BAD!

Hey Dan,

Thanks, Craig, but I fuckin' HATE Eddie Vedder, and the prospect of him glomming on to the Cubs' potential World Series championship sickens me like the image of Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore making out on the field while the Red Sox celebrated their '04 win sickened millions of Boston fans. Dude's probably a closet Padres fan, anyway.

Craig Rosen

Ha! Pads or Cubs, either way poor Eddie is long suffering. Probably his tortured vocal stylings.
