10/12/17: NLDS Open Game Thread

Game Five! Cubs at Nationals! Two teams enter, one team leaves! Well, both teams will leave afterwards, but only one goes to the next round!

The Nationals battled back and forced a game five after the Stephen Strasburg Flu Game(TM), which afterward he said was “no big deal.” They say Willie Bloomquist’s heart overflowed with grit that day.

Anyways, will the Nationals get the monkey off their back and finally win a playoff series? Will Cubs fans get to to return to their usual offseason sadness after a once in 3 generations reprieve? Seriously, I hope Cubs fans did important things with their spare time this last year or so with all that free time I assume that comes with your team winning a championship and not having to worry about sucking for a while. That’s how it works, right? I’m just guessing.
