2016 World Series of Baseball was rigged, is a false headline!
I want to dispel all rumors right now that the 2016 World Series of Baseball was rigged. I would further like to dispel any rumors that I was the person who ‘fixed’ it (which it wasn’t). Sure I grew up in Chicago and have been a lifelong Cubs fan, but I was just as thrilled and shocked as the rest of the world when the final “Out” was called on November 2, 2016 making history and lifting the famous Billy Goat Curse.
- Holy now! 108 years later, Cubs are the best in the World!
Like most storms, the one that made hell freeze over and allowed pigs to fly was not a sudden one. This storm was brewing for over a century and escalated greatly as it approached. The catchphrase Cubs fans uttered over the last 100+ years has been “just one before I die,” a plea that fell on deaf ears decade after decade. The players, managers, coaches, fans and everybody played their roles perfectly allowing the Chicago Cubs to Fly the W!
Just as predicted by insiders: “Sure as God made green apples, someday, the Chicago Cubs are going to be in the World Series.” ~ Harry Caray
At the time of this writing, no indictments have been issues to Bill Murray, John Cusack, myself or anyone else for that matter to the best of our knowledge. This was a clean series and a clean game and the better team won out after a ferocious battle!
In the movie the Godfather you heard the line: “I’ve loved baseball ever since Arnold Rothstein fixed the World Series in 1919.” ~ Hyman Roth; but that was a movie and this is real life.
So in closing, I would like to congratulate all of the Cubs and fans on the victory of a lifetime! Again, I had absolutely no involvement in the win except for maybe some quiet prayers and some excited jumping around and maybe a phone call or two. Last time they won, they did it back to back. I will let you know if I plan to make a similar arrangement. 😉
On a completely unrelated note, we have a small batch of Goat flavored Jerky on sale. We will be selling the Goat Jerky out of the trunk of my Cadillac on the corner of Addison and Clark while supplies last.
