    导出博客文章Ever since the Chicago Cubs?ended their 108-year title drought, the teams
    anthem, Go, Cubs, Go, has been played nearly everywhere. And thanks to all of
    that Cubs love, the catchy song has made it onto the Billboard charts for the
    first time since it was released in 1984.?According to Billboard, downloads of
    the song increased by 125 percent in the week following the Cubs World Series
    win. In the same tracking week, the anthem totaled 2.5 million streaming plays,
    a 110 percent increase. The song enters the Pop Digital Song Sales chart (dated
    Nov. 19) at No. 21.?With the song traditionally played after every Chicago home
    win, as long as the Cubs carry over their winning ways to 2017, well be hearing
    this song for a while.?-- Sarah Scrivens

    . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh
    straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the
    Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15
    rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in
    Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid.
    . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or
    perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear
    to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to
    inquire, no more, no less.

    . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a
    special gift tucked inside. Castres ran in five tries in a 41-7 demolition of
    old European rivals Northampton Saints courtesy of a dominant forward
    performance that saw the visitors pack shoved all over the park.Winger David
    Smith was the main beneficiary of the hosts total control up front in the ninth
    European meeting between the two sides.He touched down twice - the first a
    saunter under the posts after captain Alex Tulous powerful run punched a hole in
    the Saints defence after 31 minutes, while his second came four minutes into the
    second period when he danced past two defenders to score in the corner following
    a smart offload from Thomas Combezou.Smith should have notched his hat-trick
    little more than a minute later, but he was unable to hold on to a
    sleight-of-hand pass from Tulou with his route to the line clear.Smiths brace
    sandwiched a try for loosehead prop Antoine Tichit, who was shoved over the line
    by his forward colleagues. Benjamin Urdapilleta converted both - the last with a
    little help from the upright.Saints had turned down four relatively
    straightforward penalty chances in favour of kicks to the corner during a period
    of concerted pressure midway through the first half.?But they were unable to
    make their possession tell, despite crossing the Castres line.After consulting
    with the TMO the referee ruled the ball was held up - and the hosts simply
    shoved the Saints pack off the ball from the resulting five-metre scrum. It was
    not the first time the Saints pack - featuring Courtney Lawes, Tom Wood, Teimana
    Harrison, Louis Picamoles and the returning Dylan Hartley - had been
    embarrassed.The hostss forwards were on a mission to prove that last weeks
    dismantling at Leinster was an aberration.dddddddddddd They pushed the
    Northampton unit off the ball time and time again. And captain Tulou was causing
    mayhem whenever he had the ball in hand.Not even a yellow card for scrum-half
    Rory Kockott seemed to alter the game plan - or affect their control. In fact,
    it appeared to galvanise the home sides determination to prove that last weeks
    five-try drubbing by Leinster in Dublin was an aberration.Northampton arrived
    seeking their first back-to-back wins over French opposition since 2011/12
    following last weeks last-gasp win against Montpellier, but in the second half
    they were consigned to the role of doughty defenders.They barely broke into
    Castres territory in the opening quarter of the second half - and even when they
    managed to get over the gainline, they were held at bay by an organised Castres
    defence.The game was long over as a contest by the time Saints winger James
    Wilson touched down for a consolation try with eight minutes left on the clock.
    There was still time for Castres to notch two more tries.Fittingly, it was a
    forward who scored the bonus-point try. Replacement flanker Alex Bias charged
    over in the corner after Northampton ran out of defenders.And the home fans
    celebrations were well under way when 19-year-old replacement scrum-half Antoine
    Dupont picked up a pass-off-the-floor from man-of-the-match Smith to burst clear
    for Castres fifth. ' ' '
