It’s Game Time Tuesday for the Afternoon Drive and the 2016 World Series!

The Indians and Cubs start their best-of-7 series tonight in Cleveland. For the Indians, it’s their first appearance in the Fall Classic since 1997, and for the Cubs, it’s been a long drought – they last got to the World Series in 1945 and haven’t won it since 1908.  The Tribe hasn’t won since 1948.  Ouch.  Something’s gotta give for these lovable losers…

Our winner for Song Poetry today was Abby from Mount Vernon, who correctly guessed Big Daddy Weave’s The Lion and the Lamb.  Our Name that Tune winner was Spencer from Utica, who correctly guessed Natalie Grant’s King of the World.  Both win $5 gift certificates to Troyer’s of Apple Valley.

We also shared some of the story behind the song of Lauren Daigle’s Come Alive (Dry Bones).  Find out more here.

Our Word of the Day is soupbone, a noun with TWO meanings: a bone used for making soup or broth, or in baseball slang, a pitcher’s throwing arm.

Thanks for listening!
