It has been an extremely interesting year in that Major League Baseball officially started the season HERE in Tokyo in March. Now my two Chicago teams THERE have won their division, the White Sox and the Cubs. (Also my favorite Japanese team, the Seibu Lions, won their division too). The White Sox and Cubs have not both won their divisions since 1906.
Jay Leno said the world may end if the Cubs win. He has a different theology than me.
NOTE: John watched some baseball on TV this summer but has not been able to watch a game since. Zannen (too bad!)
