On Sunday, October 30, with the Cubs facing a 3-1 deficit in the World Series, Mark Carman and Jarrett Payton took to the air before Game 5 to ask you for your “won’t it be cool?” moments: positive things you thought would happen for the Cubs as they attempted to come all the way back and grab the ring with their backs against the wall.

Thanks to listeners Bob, Paul, Donna, Marge, Patsy and Joe for their input.
