Sharing Is Caring: 10/13/13 – 10/19/13

The best Cubs and other links from the last week (that I saw!) Whoa, where did all this Red Sox gear from? I’m just glad Boston finished it in six so I wouldn’t have to make a choice between watching game 7 or watching Peyton Manning against the Colts, which is quite literally the one…
