Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score !
On this week’s episode, there’s only one lead story– the Chicago Cubs overcome a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series in extra innings vs. The Cleveland Indians, ending a 108-year championship drought. Plus, we discuss the past week’s NBA grudge match between Durant and Westbrook and players speaking out against the officiating in the No Fun League.
Panelists on this episode are devoted Cubs fan Jeremy Wilson (@I_am_J9911) and sports writer & “Ridin’ & Rollin’” show host Chris Stevens (@CJWritesNThangs). This episode is moderated by Tyler Ball (@taball1).

ride the pine
- Buffalo Bills fan for throwing a dildo on the field during the Patriots game.
- Melissa Harris-Perry, for a very weird questioning of FLOTUS statement supporting the Cubs, suggesting that Southsiders support the White Sox.
- NCAA President Mark Emmert, who reacted to Ben Simmons’ ShowTime documentary “One & Done” with the comments ““If someone wants to be a pro basketball player and doesn’t want to go to college, don’t go to college. We don’t put a gun to your head. First and foremost, it’s about being a student at a university. We’re in the human development business.”
Score of the week
- 513 – Passing Yards for Oakland’s Derek Carr in a 30-24 OT win over Tampa Bay
- 18.6pts, 9.6asts, 9.5rebs – Magic Johnson’s 1981-82 averages, closest to a triple-double since Oscar Robertson in 1965. Something Lebron and Westbrook should shoot for.
- 108 – Years between titles for the Chicago Cubs.
