Now that the World Series is almost over, I took a look at the Sports Illustrated baseball preview issue from back in March. They picked the Nationals over the Yankees in the World Series. At least the Yankees made the playoffs, the Nationals continued their run as the most underachieving team in the major leagues.

Dodgers have made it to the World Series 15 times during my lifetime.
1952, 1953, 1955, 1956, 1959, 1963, 1965, 1966, 1974, 1977, 1978, 1981, 1988, 2017, and 2018.
This is the first time they’ve been in the World Series during my life that I WANTED them to win.

Hi Garry :wink:
Well, George, I guess I understand how you feel. Remember, I’m a Cubs fan too, and they didn’t win the World Series until just before my 109th birthday.
I guess that gives me something to look forward to when I turn 218.
Congratulations to your team. Celebrate your okole off. :pirate:

I’m packing for Key West as we speak. I should probably throw my Yankee cap into my duffel bag to bring with me.
I’ve already packed my Dodger cap.
