Andy Pettitte Jersey . -- Brogan Roback found Sergio Bailey II with a 24-yard touchdown with 21 seconds left and Eastern Michigan won its seventh game of the season for the first time in 27 years, knocking off Central Michigan 26-21 in the regular season finale Tuesday night.Eastern Michigan (7-5, 4-4 Mid-American Conference) is bowl-eligible for the first time since 1987 when the Eagles played in the California Bowl against San Jose State, the only bowl game the school has played in in its 41-year history. Its the Eagles first winning season since 1995.The Eagles led 20-7 after three quarters, but the Chippewas (6-6, 3-5) rallied behind a pair of Devon Spalding touchdown runs, including a 41-yard dash that put them up 21-20 with 2:34 left.Robach, who finished 26 of 38 for 355 yards, engineered a 72-yard drive in eight plays for the winning score, his second TD pass of the game. Justin Verlander Jersey . As he recorded his 23rd and 24th points of the evening, a segment of the sellout Air Canada Centre crowd expressed their appreciation for the Raptors point guard with a smattering of MVP chants. Youth Astros Jerseys .Y. -- Leading 3-0 with only 11:25 left, the Colorado Avalanche committed a seemingly meaningless penalty to give the New York Islanders a power play. Youve heard it all: the stories of Chicago Cubs fans who have been waiting their entire lives to see a title. But if you arent from Chicago, its hard to get a grasp on how not winning it all has affected these people and how the dream of one day winning it, which could be realized Wednesday night, consumes them.All it takes is a stroll around Wrigley Field to see their very short stories, and prayers, written on dedication bricks, which the Cubs started selling in 2006. After renovations at Wrigley, when many such bricks wound up in a landfill, the Cubs redid them this year and placed most of them behind the bleachers on Sheffield Avenue.4 GENERATIONS OF SUFFERING RALPH PEARMANRalph Pearmans father, Ralph Sr., went to the 1907 World Series with his father, Frank. The following year, Ralph Sr. asked his father if he could take him again, to which his father famously replied, Dont worry, the Cubs play in the World Series every year.Those, of course, turned into some fateful words, as the Cubs won in 1908 and never again.The love of the Cubs was passed down from Frank to Ralph Sr. and eventually to Ralph Jr., who became a judge in Paris, Illinois, about 185 miles south of Wrigley Field. The attachment was further fostered by the Cubs having a minor league team in the town.Still burned by the moment in 1908, Ralph Jr.s father wanted to take him to the 1945 World Series, the Cubs most recent Fall Classic before 2016, butt young Ralph was laid up in a back brace after hurting himself playing sports. Jose Cruz Jersey. Ralph Pearman Jr. said hes a real Cubs fan and watches every game. His son John (and Johns siblings) bought his father the brick as a Christmas present. Hes a man of few words, but whatever he says is really impactful, John said.Reached Wednesday, Ralph Jr., now 87, said he was really nervous, saying that the brick is an accurate portrayal of my sentiment.John notes that there are now five generations of suffering Pearmans, thanks to Ralph Jr.s grandchildren, but they havent suffered for that long.WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR - ED GUINAN FAN SINCE 1926As has been chronicled plenty, the Cubs have had a long history of not winning title, stretching back to 1908. Not all fans could out live the drought, as was the case with Ed Guinan, born in 1926, who died in the summer of 2009.PETER MASSON IN HEAVEN AND STILL WAITINGPeter Masson, a World War II Navy veteran, loved his Cubs. He died July 21, 2004, at the age of 86.WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT 40 YEARS! JV - 11/11/66We dont know who JV is, but its a safe assumption that the 40 years since 1966 came from the fact that most of the bricks were ordered in 2006. If the Cubs do win it all on Wednesday night, it will be nine days short of 50 years from the date on the brick.
