For the first time in 108 years, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series and the city couldn’t wait to celebrate their long awaited win!
To give you a hint how long ago that was, all of the television news stations that covered the game were not around then because TV was still 18 years away from being displayed. The first baseball game to be broadcast on radio was still 12 years away and 30 years from being seen on television. We were also 18 years away from the first movie with sound aka Talkies.
There were just 16 baseball teams unlike the 30 that we have today.There were only 46 states, New Mexico and Arizona were still territories. Only 14% of houses had bathtubs inside of them and 8% had phones. Only 30 people lived in Las Vegas. The average worker made less than $400 a year. The first computer would not be completed until 1946.
Four months after the Cubs clinched the second World Series in a row, construction would begin on a little boat called the Titanic. No World Wars has been fought. The Hollywood Sign was 14 years away from being built.
The oldest Chicago Cubs fan living in Chicago was months away from being born. In fact, Kirk Douglas, Betty White, Queen Elizabeth II Larry King, you and me were not even born yet.
A lot has changed since 1908, some for them better, some for the worst. But one thing that has been constant is how much we all love baseball and that feeling of enjoyment we all got yesterday to see a team win a title that hadn’t won in 108 years.
Tom Brady hasn’t been playing football because he was suspended due to Inflagate. What has been doing during his suspension? He went on vacation with his wife Gisele Bundchen and ate candy.
The way he is eating that UnReal candy bar makes me think he needs to give up that weird Vegan diet and eat as much candy as he desires. Because that almost looked like p0rn to me.
Ever since Ryan Lochte was caught liar, liar Speedo on fire, he has been dropped by several of his sponsors like Speedo and Gentle Hair Removal. Yesterday, a company made him a $10,000 offer and I hope he accepts it. Autoblow 2 wants him to pose with their first robotic male masturbation device that simulates a blowjob and say, “Autoblow 2: the masturbation device Olympic champions chose.” I think they need to add, “And that is no lie.”
Back to him and the Autoblow 2. If he had one Rio, then he would’ve stayed in, not got drunk, allegedly destroyed a bathroom and told his mom he was robbed at gunpoint. Had none of the latter happened, he would still be a respected Olympian and not this Olympic’s joke.
What does he have to lose if he takes this offer? His career is already swimming with the sharks. So do it with Autoblow 2!
Warren Sapp and I went to University of Miami and they prepared us for the elements of Florida with classes like Underwater Basket Weaving. But one thing they didn’t prepare us for was shark attacks.
Yesterday, when the Dancing with the Stars former competitor went lobstering with Two Conchs Charters, he Tangoed with a shark and the shark pulverized his arm like he was running towards the end zone with the game winning ball at the Super Bowl. The Defensive tackle didn’t let the huge chunk missing from his arm get him down, because they caught more lobsters than Red Lobster can serve during a dinner service.
In fact, thanks to his nurse, he is ready to enjoy another day in the gorgeous Florida Keys waters! Just hopefully this time he will put on some shark repellent so he doesn’t become shark bait again.
It is that time of year, when the graduating football players leave and the new ones join the team. You can say it is the Circle of Life, so it would make sense that University of Michigan’s Wolverine would use it as a ritual to welcome the newbies. Or just have some fun!
Here’s the video that Quarterback John O’Korn shared of them lifting the little guy who will someday grow to be their King. Watching it will make you as happy as singing Hakuna Matata.
