Second year in a row we get a Game 7 in the World Series. Will it be as great as last year?

Either way, this is two straight years the World Series has been awesome. I still want the Astros to win, but even for the legendary Dodgers it has been 29 years since their last championship.

This is a REAL magazine from 2014, my hand to god.

I am guessing the guy who wrote the story was chased out of town for being nothing short of a loon. Most people won't get how insane this is. Baseball fans will shit. They'll pause to reflect. And then they will shit again.

To put it in perspective, this would be like a magazine today predicting the US winning the 2022 World Cup.

Actually, wait, I take that back. Let me change it.

This would be like a magazine today predicting ME winning the 2022 World Cup.

Yup.

As I mentioned earlier in the thread one of the reasons I wanted the Astros to win was because of how they built the team. This article was a good read in SI. But if you followed the organization and paid attention to what they were doing when they had three consecutive 100-plus loss seasons, it is hard to root against them.
And the Astros are the 2017 World Series Champions!

Stunning neither Kershaw nor Verlander could win Games 5 or 6, but man did Yu Darvish get crushed in this series. A shame, as he is a really good pitcher. Plus he was a Ranger and goes 0-2 in the Series only to see the title go to Texas.

Congrats to Bler and BenKii! Heh, now I don't feel so bad about that 0.2 second claim on the Dodgers I stole. Thanks to OldFatGuy for holding such an amazingly generous giveaway!
I greatly appreciate the generosity, but I will have to decline.

+1 for the gesture and the GA!

Wow! I can't believe the Astros won. I watched the 7 games and it was back and forth with the score up until the end. I now have a new appreciation for baseball. Thank you OldFatGuy. I'd like to wait on redeeming the prize until the next sale when more of my wishlist might go on sale. Thanks again. :D

Last, congrats to the winners, and thanks for the fun and generous contest, OFG!

It's all a fix, we know sports are rigged. This is even more blatant than the Black Sox scandal!

EDIT: I know Ben wrote the article, but the real genius is the editor who 99.99% chance is the person who wrote the headline. Editors are the ones who write the headlines and layout/design the cover and each page.
