Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Curse reversed!

I must confess I’m not a huge baseball fan.   In fact,  the World Series is about all I watch,  unless a friend’s son is playing for a college team.  But this series was worth watching,  nicely encapsulating the aspects of the game long called America’s pastime.

When the Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers to advance to the World Series for the first time since 1945,  people wondered if the famous curse  would be reversed.   Others mused about how much the world and the game of baseball  have changed  since then.

It took  seven games  and a rain delay for the Cubs to beat the Cleveland Indians,  a team last in the World Series in 1948.   And now they’re America’s team.
