Well, we are almost half way through the season and as we near the end of October, I’m just glad that we haven’t had any snow fly yet. And no, I didn’t just jinx us all on the weather. In addition to this great weather right now, the World Series starts tonight and what great timing — we can all enjoy some good ‘ol Americana baseball before we go to the polls in another 2 weeks. I have to admit, it is very cool to have the Cubs in the series after 71 years …. and the Cleveland Indians gives me thoughts of “Major League” and Ricky Vaughn coming to the mound to the song Wild Thing. One of my favorite quotes is “Forget about the curveball Ricky, throw ’em the heater”! Well, it certainly will be a great series — I just wonder if the Windy City turns into the City that doesn’t sleep??
