I thought the world would end last night

Some people have been calling this year's American baseball World Series the "Armageddon 'Series." Why? Because it was between the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs, two teams that NEVER win the World Series. The Chicago Cubs had last won a World Series in 1908. The Cleveland Indians had last won a World Series in 1948. Something had to give, and many assumed that the world would end as soon as the 'Series was over. Something had to give. I hoped it would end in a tie. In a sense, it did, as the score was 6-6 after nine innings. But the Cubs manged to scratch out an 8-7 win in ten innings, ending their 108-year drought. When I awoke this morning, I expected to see a scene from a Bosch painting. Instead, I saw sparking sunshine and green trees, refreshed by the recent rains. I'm convinced it's because the game went into extra innings. Did you watch the game?

@TheHorse sorry got things totally confused. It was when the NY Mets won in 1986
This footage originally aired on October 28, 1986 on WPIX-TV a day after the Mets beat the Boston Red Sox in the seventh and final game of the World Series. ...

I heard one former baseball player today on the radio. He was BLASTING the Cubs' Manager's decisions last night. I agree with him (the player), but I still think he's a good Manager. I'm glad the Cubs managed to win. Next year I'm rooting for Cleveland.
