Last weekend, the Cubs and the Red Sox played an interleague series at Fenway. Friday was the first time these two historic old baseball teams met up in major league baseball’s oldest stadium in over 90 years. It seems fitting that they would scheduled this historic series for apocalypse weekend. True to form, the Cubbies lost 15 to 5 on Friday as well as losing the series at Fenway.
Another fun fact: The Cubs’ last visit to Fenway in 1918 was also the last World Series win for the Red Sox before the “Curse of the Bambino”, an 86-year dry spell that went on until 2004 where the Red Sox failed to win the World Series. The Cubs have an even longer World Series losing streak (102 years!) that is still going today.
