The baseball gods seemingly want a Yankees-Dodgers World Series for the first time since I was a teenager. Of course, I remember my heart being broken by the Astros of the late 1970s/early 80s as this happened.
The 1980 NLCS was a larger heartbreak than any teenage girl. (Not that many teenage girls gave me the time of day, but still...)
So, to borrow the words of a famous Yankee, I hope and pray that it’s not “deja vu all over again.”
But the baseball gods have proven over and over that the Marvel universe has nothing on them, so I’m not optimistic...
Still, go Astros!
