Crowding the Plate Podcast Episode 31: The Cubs Win the World Series

This is not a misprint: The Chicago Cubs have won the World Series. In a game seven for the ages, the Cubs win the World Series on two runs in the tenth inning after blowing a four run lead in the late innings. The first six games of the series may not have brought many memorable moments, but the seventh certainly made up for it. Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen look back on the game that Cubs fans will remember for the rest of time. Indians fans will certainly remember it, too, but for entirely different reasons.

Planning The Parade 09/21: Toronto FC draw, Blue Jays Stretch Run, Hockey

This week's Planning The Parade saw the guys talk about the Toronto FC came back against the New York Red Bulls and stole a crucial point to stay atop the Eastern Conference. Who's the newest toast of Toronto? 

The crew's favourite guest, Dan Riccio from Sportsnet's The Fan, host of TFC Pitchside. After covering all things Toronto FC, Dan and Artem chatted Blue Jays to get informed. Will the Blue Jays win the AL East? Do they even have a chance? What about small ball/long ball?  

Finally, the topic shifted to the World Cup of Hockey. Auston Matthews looks quite decent out there, but there's another Leaf who could make a huge impact for the Blue & White this year. Who's that? Which Leaf is ready to take the next step to become a key contributor?

The crew also debuted a new segment where they rated and predicted hypotheticals. Sounds very radio-esque. They thought they could try and be original, I suppose. 

All that and more, on Planning The Parade, the Toronto sports podcast.
