Congratulations to the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs!
I haven’t been a baseball fan since fellow Oklahoman Mickey Mantle played for the Yankees. But even I understood the historical significance of this World Series and I decided to cheer for the Cubs since they’d had the longer series drought. I tracked the wins and losses as the series continued and (great fan that I am!) finally tuned in last night to watch the last half of the game. I wish somehow both teams could have won … but I guess that’s why they play the series in the first place.
Minor correction: I did start paying attention when my now-hometown Rockies got to the series a few years ago and my son and grandson scrambled to get tickets to one of the games played here in Denver — just so they could say they’d been to a series game.
