Best New York Times Correction about the Cubbies in a Century

In case you were wondering -- and let's face it, you weren't, but I'm gonna share anyway --- the Cubs' magic number currently sits at 39 [Correction -- make that 37!].
Good news, fo sho. But my favorite Wrigley development of the week came in the Sunday Times (and sat on my desk a good week until rediscovering it, but hey, what can I say?)

An article last Sunday about the desire of Mark Cuban, the owner of the N.B.A.’s Dallas Mavericks, to also own the Chicago Cubs referred incorrectly to the baseball team’s championship history. The Cubs have indeed “won it all,” capturing World Series titles in 1907 and 1908.

That's right, two World Series victories. Suck it, Yankees fans!
