Pigs Fly Just Fine - The World Series

I have to start this by saying, I am not a sports fan.  I was into science, not sports.  But I married a guy from Chicago and so, as they said in the Bible in the book of Ruth:

But Ruth replied, Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.

So, this household was up til after midnight, even if have to get up at 4:30 for work, as I really wanted to see the Cubs win. 
 As a Cleveland resident for six years when I was single, I had mixed feelings, but this is my home and I support my home team.


  1. There was a lot of shouting and excitement in our house yesterday! Momma was torn, because HER team wasn't playing and she had ties to both teams in the game. So she kinda arbitrarily picked one. But she was mostly just excited to see a good, exciting game!

  2. Being from the land of the Royals, we weren't sure who to cheer on, but we figured it was going to be a big night for one of those two teams. Congrats to the Cubs!!!

  3. We slept through it but our pawrents said is was a nail biter! Since mom is from Indiana she had lots of family rooting hard!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  4. We didn't watch the game here.
    Dad like football and mom likes hallmark movies.
    Glad it was a good game.

  5. It was a FABulous game!!! GO CUBBIES!!!! (though, Ma is a Giants fan, the Cubs beat them on their way to the WS, so, if you;re gonna be beat, get beat by the best!)
    CONGRATS to the Cubs!!!! WoooHooooo!!!! (though, I do beieves that Cleveland is gonna win next year...)

  6. great that you enjoyed the game ...even when the work day today will be a hard one :o)
