Of course, in the event of an actual Cubs-Red Sox World Series, you can expect a blast from Gabriel's trumpet halfway through the National Anthem.

Dreams do come true in life. David does beat Goliath. Hollywood endings do happen.

But not in the Bronx. The New York Yankees were put on this earth for one reason — to remind us that Goliath usually wins, and that Hollywood endings are the stuff of dreams precisely because life so rarely works out that way. Cubs fans believed; Red Sox fans believed. Yankee fans just expect, and they are yet again rewarded. Yankee Stadium remains the place where dreams go to die.

The only question left is how many of this year's Marlins will be with the same club next year.

Funniest thing I heard on the radio:

Could'a been.

Actually it would have been in the bottom of the 9th inning of the seventh game with the score tied, two outs, and bases loaded.
