As USA Today Sports proclaimed:
CLEVELAND – It was the moment that time stood still, the earth quit spinning, and a beleaguered but loyal fan base stopped breathing.
Finally, after 108 years, the miracle everyone has been awaiting actually happened Wednesday.
The Chicago Cubs, after one of the most dramatic World Series games played, are your 2016 World Series champions.
Go ahead and pinch yourself, America, the baseball miracle of all miracles finally happened and al.com quoted political blogger Ken Rudin:
“When the World Series goes to a Game 7, if the American League team wins, Republicans win the White House. If the National League team wins, Democrats win the White House,” he wrote.
To prove his point, he added this list:
1972 (AL team wins) — Nixon (R)
1968 (AL team wins) — Nixon (R)
1964 (NL team wins) — Johnson (D)
1960 (NL team wins) — Kennedy (D)
1956 (AL team wins) — Eisenhower (R)
1952 (AL team wins) — Eisenhower (R)
1940 (NL team wins) — Roosevelt (D)
1924 (AL team wins) — Coolidge (R)
That means Wednesday night’s seven game win by the Cubs of the National League over the American League Cleveland Indians favors a Clinton win.

Should the questionable actions of the FBI possibly violating the law by tampering with the election be investigated? Should a Special Prosecutor be appointed by the Attorney General and, if so, when? My druthers would be today, immediately if not before in order to stem a dangerous turn toward damaging our democracy.
But who is above reproach, beyond bias and not tainted with today’s scandals? Perhaps someone like retired SCOTUS Justices Sandra Day O’Connor or David Souter, both appointees by Republican presidents and one a former prosecutor.
How should this mess be approached, how soon in your opinion and who would you appoint if you were AG Lynch?
A puzzle to ponder as our trail scouts Toby and Gale Storm do their best to show us the way in their own doggy ways. So, in the midst of today’s turmoil let’s take a timeout, contemplate such thoughts and enjoy their world…
