Nah, that doesn't happen until they ... you know, I can't even begin to say it, because it's just too much of a jinx.

But, yeah, that's when Armageddon happens.

(Where did you end up watching, by the way?)

And the crowd goes wild! (No, seriously, sometimes the world doesn't understand just how awful the curse is. 108 years without a world series, and we went 71 years without a pennant. The latter condition has now been rectified. We just have to get past the Cleveland Indians to rectify the former.)

Oh, that is brilliant! I just played it for BB. I got up this morning and actually checked four different newspaper sites, just to make sure that what I saw last night wasn't a poorly digested piece of gristle.

It wasn't.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

2016 fucking owed us. I'll take this as a down payment.

inorite? This year has been so fired since about January 2015, and we had to wait this long to get a shiny aspect to the year. I'll take it, though.

Yay! Lots of Sox fans are probably pulling for the Cubs. They feel the fans' pain. So happy!

You're talking about the Red Sox, right? Yeah, that's altogether possible. We tried not to feel jealous when the Bosox won. Interestingly enough, Theo Epstein, who helped build the Red Sox teams that won their most recent victories, is the man behind the Cubs resurgence.

As for the other Sox team in the American League? It's hard for White Sox fans to rejoice with us. Although I must say, a couple of my White Sox fan friends have been pretty gracious.

Thanks for the happy feelings, my dear. I'm trying to think of some European/non-North American thing to which I could compare this - perhaps to a fan of some bottom-tier football (soccer-type)team making it to the fooball finals (whatever those are)? Or some tiny overlooked country finally winning the World Cup?

Yeah, I've got nothing. Suffice it to say that we have 108 years of not winning the baseball World Series (which, because North American baseball is very parochial, only features American and Canadian teams), and 71 years of not even making it to the World Series, the Cubs have a chance to end the 108-year drought.

HUZZAH!

It turns out that Back to the Future was only one year off on its prediction.

I didn't recall the Cubs being part of the movie, but that doesn't surprise me. We'll see how tonight goes, though; I'm kind of nervous. She said with admirable restraint.
