What Had Happened Was: 11/2/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
We have a Game 7 on our hands! That’s right, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians for the second straight game — thanks to seven runs in the first three innings of Game 6 — to force a World Series finale Wednesday night.

Again: If the Cubs pull this off, it's a bigger deal than the Sox 0-3 comeback. Better competition, bigger stage. #WorldSeries

If the Cubs pull off this epic comeback, it will be something else. Maybe that Golden State Warriors would be off the hook, or something. I don’t know.
What if all of Cleveland’s 3-1 Warriors jokes have cursed the Indians?

I'm so sorry for making fun of the warriors for blowing their 3-1 lead.

After just three games on the active roster, Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles has been placed on injured reserve. The Chiefs have been getting by fine with backup Spencer Ware, so this isn’t as big of a loss for the team. However, Charles’ skill on the field will be missed by football fans all over the country.
After visiting Dr. James Andrews, #KCChiefs RB Jamaal Charles will need a 2nd surgery on his knee, source said. Severity is unclear.

Fans still have hope, though.
