    What a series! Congrats to the Cubs

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to Skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and shouting: Damn-What a ride!

    I have to be up at 6, but damnit, I don't care.  I'm not going to bed until this is over!

    I had to bail around 11:30 . . . . . got up this morning to the news!

    Honestly, it would have been great for either team to win.

    I felt that way, too, but now that it's over, I have to say that, given the length of time since the last Cubs win and the fact that Cleveland had a recent sports championship, I'm glad it worked out the way it did!

    Love 108 years and 108 stitches on a baseball.

    Game 7, extra inning , one-point final score - it was a fantastic game!  As it should be for the World Series.

    Does it feel a lot colder this morning? ;)

    Read it in one of the articles and it stuck (it had a number in it, love numbers).  Never checked it, so I just did:
