The Bridge Ep. 46: Gordon Wittenmyer, Chicago Cubs beat writer, joins the show to discuss Game 7 of the World Series, plus a special appearance from the “producer” of The Bridge
“It wasn’t a dream, it really happened!” — Charles Barkley (Space Jam)
Even though the World Series was decided several weeks ago, Chicago Cubs fans will feel like Charles Barkley did for quite some time. It finally happened. The Cubs ended their 108-year-old curse to win the World Series, and did so in grand fashion by coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win Game 7, in extra innings, against the Cleveland Indians.
You may be thinking, isn’t it a little late to talk about the World Series? Well, yeah. But because Game 7 was played on the night The Bridge is live on Sports Radio America, and I had audio troubles last week and couldn’t get a show out, you’ll have to excuse my tardiness.
Before we get into Episode 46, as a reminder, The Bridge is now broadcast as a one hour radio show every Wednesday night on Sports Radio America, starting at 7 ET. Once the dust settles from that live broadcast, the show is released as a podcast on iTunes and this website on Friday night. You can listen to the live show every Wednesday on Sports Radio America here or through the TuneIn app.
Editor’s note: The Bridge will be radio silent for Thanksgiving week and will return to Sports Radio America at 7 ET on Wednesday, Nov. 30. If you miss us, catch up with The Bridge on iTunes.

* “The Drawbridge” was lowered to discuss what life was like the last time the Cleveland Indians (1948) and the Chicago Cubs (1908) won the World Series. Special thanks to Gene and Walter for the help (14:04 / 18:33).
