Indians Lose World Series; Economic Impact of Being in the Finals; Boxers React to Boxing Painting

One team was going to win  and of course we hoped it would be the Cleveland Indians.  It wasn't. Cubs beat the Indians 8-7 in extra innings ending a 108-year drought to become to clinch the title. ideastream's Darrielle Snipes talked with fans. 

While we may have lost on the field,  Cleveland has been winning big, off the field, during the world series.  The fall classic was a boon for local businesses but just how big a bounce financially has the city and team enjoyed from this extended post-season run? Kevin Kleps, Assistant Editor and Sports Business Reporter for Crain's Cleveland Business, breaks down the numbers. 

As part of its centennial celebration this year, the Cleveland Museum of Art is spotlighting some of its most famous pieces. One is George Bellows' 1909 painting of a boxing match, called "Stag at Sharkey's".  ideastream's David C. Barnett talked with three boxers about the painting.
