Seriously? Penguins and magicians? That sounds like something you do for a child's birthday party.

Yeah, that's pretty cool. Like I keep saying, I have nothing against the Cubs players.

MLB Network is broadcasting the victory parade in Chicago. They're estimating somewhere around 2 million people on the route. It's pretty amazing to see.

It's pretty cool.  The parade is in downtown Chicago now and the commentators have just shut up and are letting you hear all the noise.  It's like block after block after block of Times Square on New Year's Eve.

Seeing all these ecstatic people and the joy on their faces almost makes me forget about Maddon.

Now they've got a helicopter over the parade. It's literally miles of people lined up. It's nuts!

I've seen some sports championship parades in my day but I've never seen anything like this.

Now the news is saying there were FIVE million people along the parade route; FIVE MILLION!!!

They're also saying this is the 7th largest gathering of human beings in history.

The Cubs have a couple attractive free agents. I think Dexter Fowler would look great in the Jays' outfield.

Wow. Now the guys on Hot Stove are talking to former major leaguer Eric Byrnes. He's featured in a documentary called "Diamond To The Rough". He ran this brutally insane race called the Western States Endurance Run. It's 100 miles straight through the Sierra Nevada mountains. And you have to finish in less than 24 hours or you're disqualified. He's saying he only stopped once. He's the first mainstream athlete to do it.

That's just crazy.
