The Scoop on Sports Television
As a former baseball player, no matter how busy my schedule is, I tend to tune into important games such as the World Series. For those who may not know which teams are in the current 2016 World Series, the teams consist of the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians. I have been observing the Chicago Cubs closely from the beginning of the season, through the first half of the playoffs, and during the World Series. Describing this certain teams impact on the baseball nation would be defined as hopeful in my opinion. The reason I say this is simply because the Cubs haven’t been to a world series since 1945. With a seventy-one year hiatus, this team has been out of the mix for a very long time. This specifically is important in the matter that Chicago is immensely in love with their Cubs and having not been to the greatest platform baseball has to offer for many years. It is about time their team has made it. There goes a story that a man once brought his pet goat to the 1945 World Series and placed a “curse” on the team.
The impact that this has had on sports and baseball is tremendous due to the history of the teams past. I believe that television has been closely watching the team providing every social news the team has to offer. Whether it is focusing in on their top players like Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, or Jake Arrieta, the players are the main focus with the potential of winning the 2016 World Series.
Watching this specific sport has had a huge impact on me with the “what if” the team pulls it off and wins. Will the “curse” be lifted and was it all just some made up belief that the team was never going to be the best team in baseball again? We will never know until the series is played out. Although I have been watching the team play for a few months now, the next few days will be more interesting than not. Myself and many people all over the country have the opportunity to witness history. As for now, it is in the hands of the Cubs to make it a story tell ending.
