HOLY GOATS, BATMAN -
BSC, CA – Just when you think things can't get crazier this year, and I won't even go into all that, then the Chicago Cubs beat the LA Dodgers 4 games to 2, winning the National League Pennant [I guess that's what they still call it, barring another Mandela Effect.
Unless you live in the Midwest or lived there at one time, like myself, you can't fathom the meaning of the Cubs being in the World Series for the first time since 1945. It was the beginning of the Atomic Age, the Generation spoken to in Matthew 24, and The World's Mightiest Mortal was outselling the Man of Steel at the newsstands and in drug store comic book racks.
Today we have the digital age and the word 'atomic' seems so yesteryear. Unfortunately the idea of war hasn't faded from history. Superman is beating up on Batman nowadays, but lo and behold, did the goat finally forgive the Cubs, relinquishing the Cubs' curse after all. After the jump we look at great shots of the winners in the most superstitious sport played today, baseball.
