TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – At WDAE radio on Thursday morning, the talk was all about wins and losses.
Of course the win… the Cubs sealing a World Series victory for the first time since 1908.
And the loss? One for the Tampa Bay area. The feeling that it woulda, coulda, shoulda been the Rays
Some people wrote into the station saying, “Congrats to all former Rays last night. And no, that would not have been the Rays, if Joe were our manager.”
But you can’t argue, there were number of former Rays who made a splash in the Cubs World Series win on Wednesday, namely MVP Ben Zobrist and of course.. Joe Maddon.
Other fans, like Colin Jotham didn’t have the “wish it could’ve been us” feeling. They just celebrated Joe Maddon.
“Very excited for him, I mean the guy brought us to the World Series in Tampa and then brought them. I ‘m not a Cubs fan, but I am because of Maddon. So very excited, an awesome game.”
