With the Cubs and Cardinals meeting in the Major League Baseball playoffs for the first time ever, we thought it would be fun to make a friendly wager with our colleagues at St. Louis Public Radio.

Our producer, Amanda Honigfort, is a St. Louis native who interned at St. Louis Public Radio.  She told us that station general manager Tim Eby is a huge Cardinals fan.  Illinois Public Radio's Brian Moline is a big Cubs fan, so the two of them got together to discuss the series and generally give each other a hard time.

The two have also made a friendly wager.  If the Cardinals win, Brian will send Tim a WILL travel mug.  If the Cubs win, Tim will send a ceramic Morning Edition mug.  May the best team win.
