Classic Sports Friday

Friday's World Series Game 3 (CLE-CHC) will mark the first time a major professional sports championship has been conducted inside the Friendly Confines since the 1963 NFL Championship Game.  This is the seventh MLB championship (1918, 1929, 1932, 1935, 1938, and 1945 the others) at Wrigley Field, but there were five NFL championship games (1933, 1937, 1941, 1943, 1963) conducted  at the 102-year old venue.  While no Cub has ever won a championship since being in Wrigley, six times during the 50 years the NFL Bears were at Wrigley Field did they claim the NFL Championship before leaving in 1970. because of the NFL's new rules post-merger.

Memories of Mike Ditka and the Championship game here.
