Did You Get the Sizzle 2: The Return of the Curse of the Billy Goat

Wed November 4 at 5:00 PM, Billy Goat Tavern
430 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
IF the Cubs make it to the World Series and IF the World Series makes it to game 7, it will all happen at the Goat. Our Goat. The first Wednesday in November strikes again. We are the chosen ones. Well, poop.
It will either be a regular day for us, or us plus news crews plus everyone in Chicago who is not actively setting things on fire. Yay!

p.s. MCMikeNamara remember that time you said you'd take the day off work to stake out our tables? GOOD LUCK, WE'RE ALL COUNTING ON YOU

Mike if you can also lock all the TVs in the bar to NBC so we can catch Wheel of Fortune, that would be cool.

game 7 will never ever in a million years ever happen and I resent the implication and implore you guys to think of JINXES OH MY GOD but if it does I will be the ginger in face paint that everyone is actively ignoring

To clarify, McMikeNamara, we are still on your side.

I am sorry the Cubs lost but I can't even begin to tell you how glad I'm not going to be camping out on a table all day. Can you imagine how much greasy food and alcohol I would have used to pass the time? SO MUCH.

I have Thursday off. In fact, all three last first Thursdays are holidays in my calendar.

Goddamn Last First Wednesdays.

I don't work Thursday! I don't work Thursday! I'm so excited that I keep thinking I don't work tomorrow either.

My company should be sending a donation to Metafilter, or more specifically y'all, because I am in a horrible mood without cause but knowing this is tonight means I will be less horrible to people all day.

There must be some way to requisition a purchase order for the first round, at least.

So Shark Tank reruns air on CNBC on Tuesday nights, which is what we saw the last bit of with the identically styled but not quite lookalike women last night (for those of you who were not at our end of the table)

CNBC does not air episodes in order and it's also not super easy to find listings for past TV. But I'm stubborn once something gets put on my to-do list.

11/15/2013, Reality, Business
A California entrepreneur pushes a home security tool, while two sisters pitch a home delivery service that offers children's toys; a successful salsa maker needs national backing; three Michigan men pitch an app for creating virtual goods.

So they were sisters after all.

Their pitch:
