The last time the teams from Brooklyn and Boston faced off in the World Series:

The Brooklyn team was the Robins not the Dodgers;

We were in the middle of WWI;

Blacks were not permitted to play in the major leagues;

Women weren't permitted to vote;

Gays weren't permitted at all;

And...

My parents hadn't been born yet....

It's been more than 100 years since these storied franchises went head to head in the baseball fall classic...

At this moment, both teams are but a single victory each away from a historic matchup that would eclipse current events for a moment as the country jumps into the way back machine that is baseball,  and spend some time reminiscing and romanticizing those bygone days of baseball yore and lore...

Back to a much simpler time when women were kept in the kitchen, gays were kept in the closet, and blacks were kept in their place...

I'm rooting for the matchup for the simple pleasure of the debates, discussions, conversations, and arguments it will bring...

Go Dodgers!

Go Red Sox!

In the 1916 World Series, the Boston Red Sox beat the Brooklyn Robins (a.k.a. Dodgers) four games to one. It is the teams' sole World Series matchup to date.

Play Ball!

I'm neutral.

I hate the Dodgers/Robins because they beat my magnificent Cubs.  I hate the Red Sox just like everyone else outside of Taxxachusetts does.

SOOOOO...

...all I'm going to say is...

Image result for Cubs next year baby!

Oh, and I'm SURE everyone wants to join me in a rousing singing of "GO, CUBS, GO!", right???

There are very few junk food items that I allow myself, basically to live out youthful cravings, but, Dodger Dogs top the list! Nothing like surfing Malibu in the morning, then heading into town to Chavez Ravine to, hopefully, watch a team that kicks ass, though we have had our ups and downs like everyone ... not this year! And, props to Brooklyn, sorry y'all, deys ours now ... alls you got is the Nets :(

Yes...Sox/Dodgers...I will have a tough time w this, tho for my late father, I'm w the Red Sox, despite my love for the Brooklyn Team and The Left Hand of God, Mr Koufax.

"The Left Hand of God, Mr Koufax."

Wasn't it "the left arm of God"?

No matter, After Jackie Robinson, Don Newcomb, and Roy Campanella, he was my favorite Dodger...
