World Series Begins Tonite

Heard someone on the radio yesterday citing how the world has changed since the Cubs last appeared in a World Series in 1945.  Obvious things that were not around in 1945 like the internet and PC's were cited but the narrator also mentioned other things that weren't around in 1945 like diet sodas, the hula hoop, international air travel, Alaska and Hawaii as official states and the NBA.  While I could not find the exact source for the radio account, I did land on a couple similar articles (click here) that discuss how things have changed since the Cubbies last made it  (click here)  

Seems everybody is on the Cubes bandwagon and sure enough they are heavy favorites to win it.  However, the Indians have very quietly taken care of their business without much ado and are a solid team.  Should be fun to see how each team handles the pressure of trying to change the perception of them as always being hapless losers.  I'm rooting for the Cubbies but if I were a betting man I'd have to take the Indians.  Let the games begin.

Here's a cool story how the movie Back to the Future writers predicted the Cubs to win the 2015 World Series.  So what if they were a year off!

However, don't forget that the Indians also had their movie moment featuring Charlie Sheen:
