Finish the Fight

The World Series begins tonight — the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros. On Friday, Game 3, the World Series returns to the nation’s capital for the first time in eighty-six years.

Charlie Brown and Sally know what’s up.

So does my collection of plush Doctors. And, despite the presence of three Doctors, none of them will tell me who will win this year’s World Series. “Wibbly-wobbly,” says one. “Fixed point in time and space,” says another other. He won’t even take off his fez. The third says he’ll only tell a cabbage, and that seems like a silly thing to go to the store and buy, just so the Doctor will talk to it.

Yeah, I”m excited.

The Nationals have to at least split the first two games in Houston. I think they’re more than capable of doing that. They’ll have a fighting chance.

Finish the fight, boys!
