Some Thoughts on the Cubs Winning the World Series

First of all, congratulations to the Cubs and all their fans. It was a remarkable achievement.

Secondly, I went to bed while the score was still 6-3. Had the Mets been playing, I probably would have stayed up for the whole game. This was very much a Mets kind of game, what with the rain delay and the extra inning.

Theo Epstein must be very happy.

Speaking of which, he's from Brookline, where I live now. I think Brookline has a right to be just as happy as Chicago.

And I kind of hope he goes to the Mets now.

Finally, I'm glad I never wrote any science-fiction stories contingent on the Cubs never winning the World Series.

Sandy Alderson is doing a good job. And hiring Theo wouldn't mean the Wilpons would spend more money.
We spent the weekend in Cleveland, attending a family wedding. It was difficult keeping my preference for the Cubs quiet while surrounded by so many loved ones who are Indians fans, but I managed not to offend anyone. A well-deserved, hard-fought championship is the best payoff for the Cubs and Chicago.
