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.
