* Kevlar: $50 to Moore's Cancer Center if the Cubs had a 1-2-3 (I think) 9th inning of NLDS Game 5. $50.

This is correct. Also, it was literally the only 1-2-3 inning the Cubs threw all night, so you can get rid of the (I think).

Pancakes posted:

* Poque: $50 if Zobrist scored in NLDS Game 5 to the Aneurysm Foundation (if I remember correctly). $50.
* Poque: $50 for every Cubs run in the 7th inning of NLDS Game 5 to the Aneurysm Foundation (if I remember correctly). $50.
* Poque: $50 to the Aneurysm Foundation (if I remember correctly)if the Cubs won NLDS Game 5 in 9 innings. $50.

The first one was only if Zobrist scored in the 5th inning.

The second and third ones are correct.

Updated the OP for amounts through the ALCS Game 2. Puerto Rico totals still pending but I wanted to be sure the RAINN donations got added for Chapman's gently caress-up.

I owed some donations. I'm all tapped out for matching now, good job everyone! Please don't let that discourage people from donating to Puerto Rico relief, people are literally cracking open wells full of contaminated water to drink. I'm going to reorder the Toxxes in the OP, tally the donations owed from the Cubs/Dodgers game last night and update the Puerto Rico section. That should all be done within the next 30 minutes or so.





E: Updated the OP for Puerto Rico figures. As always, please point out any errors (Schwarbers) in my attribution or math. So far to date I think we've raised $1,849 for various charities, including over $1,200 for Puerto Rico relief. Cubs posters have now taken the lead in Puerto Rico giving.

I owe 5 for the Schwarber bomb. Seems weak to just donate 5 so I'll add on 5 for every Stro Homer and a solid 50 for when they do the needful and put down the Yankees. I'll be donating to the Society of Women Engineers

IIRC youcaring was the one of choice for the continental hurricanes so I'll probably do Kike Hernandez's.

$5 for every run the Cubs score while Lackey is pitcher of record, whether he gets a decision or not

24 hits in the series, 0 Schwarberrors, and 1 run scored for Lackey = $125

You know it's not even the tastes on that one, it's imagining the texture that turns my stomach. And texture is always worse, you can't turn off mouth feel.

I've updated the OP through the beginning of the World Series. As always, if I messed up any totals please let me know. I've already caught a couple of math errors and failure to count Puerto Rico pledges while I was posting this update. I still owe $45 more to the ACLU for Arrieta's strikeouts and $25 to the National Eating Disorders Association for Gattis' home run in Game 7.

Most of the Toxxes have resolved, with the notable exception of Intruder's Bananas Hollandaise pledge. I've sorted all the resolved Toxx pledges into Puerto Rico and "other" and alphabetized by the posters who pledged. Puerto Rico figures updated as well, with Cubs fans making up almost half of the $1,934 we've raised to date for Puerto Rico relief. We've also pledged another $775 for various other charities, for a thread total of $2,709.

In the interest of fairness, I am giving one week after a potential world series win to start working on the bananas. You have to complete it before the end of the 2nd week. The pie same deal, just one week after the bananas to allow for recovery.

So, in other words:
Week 1: recovery from celebrating
Week 2: Banana Hollandaise
Week 3: Summer Pie

Is this acceptable to you?
