WORLD SERIES:

Chicago Cubs over Cleveland Indians (7 games)

Another long sports drought ends this year.

4th overall exactly correct championship prediction made before playoffs start.

Good thing I didn't jinx Cubbies.

Notice how I included '7 games' for some extra credit points?
How much did you make off of it?

I don't gamble any more.

I think you know why.

I did notice -- well done, MS.

I'm so thrilled for Chicago. Dancingparty

Bill Murray is one of a handful of famous people who really rubs me right (though I suspect he's nuts). It was fun watching him celebrate a lifelong dream with his fellow Cubs' fans last night. Man, was he emotionally into it.

And, it will be fun to see LeBron donning Dwayne Wade's jersey in Chicago; he's no welcher. I would like to see the Indians make it to the World Series again next year and, hopefully, Wade will have to return the favor.

This is a lovely story. [Image: cry-blow.gif]

A North Carolina man drove back home to Indiana to keep a decades-old promise to his father.

Wayne Williams drove in for the Game 7 of the World Series.

"The gate was open," he says as he drives in.

He's not at the ballpark. He's watching it with his dad.

"Got a W flag. Not supposed to fly until after the actual win," Williams said, going over his supplies.

His dad, also named Wayne Williams, was waiting for him.

Look, dad, here's your son, keeping his part of the bargain.

Williams set up camp in the military section of Greenwood Forest Lawn Cemetery after an all-day drive from North Carolina.

His dad died at age 53 in 1980. A Navy veteran.

RE: 2016 MLB PLAYOFFS

I watched the entire "extra long" game last night.

I was not either an avid Cubs and or Indians fan to start with.

However, around the second inning I found my self starting to root for the Cubs, for whatever reason.

It was an exciting game to me, as history was being made at the same time! Congrats to the Cubs, and all Cubs fans!
