“Hey HJ, do you know the cubs haven’t won the World Series since 1908? That is 108 years ago! That’s older then nana, papa, even great grandma! If they win tonight it is a huge deal!”
HJ looks at me with wide eyes. “Oh my gosh! How old are the players?!?!”
He definitely thought the players from 1908 were playing last night.
Back in 2001, I went to my first pro baseball game. I had an internship in Chicago, and a group of us went to the cubs game. Half of our group was from England and Scotland. They knew nothing about baseball. We were trying to explain strikes, balls, etc. And other fans kept looking at us with amused expressions on their faces.
I can’t imagine the fun that city is having today!
