Cubs/Carson, Coincidence Part 2

November 16, 2016

Of course the Chicago Cubs won the World Series this year, one in which the calendar was the same as 1988.

In fact, exactly 28 years after Mr. Carson used the joke in his monologue on Friday November 4, 1988, the city of Chicago held a victory parade for the Cubs’ first title in 108 years.

Ah, but that is not all! Along with a revitalized James Garner and comedian Jeff Cesario, Park Overall then on the television show, “Empty Nest,” and calling Johnny, “Sir” was a guest. Why is that part of the amazing coincidence?

Before this season, as stated, the Cubs’ last title was in 1908. The winning pitcher in the clincher with a dominant COMPLETE GAME SHUTOUT (remember those), was Orval OVERALL.

Oh no, just thought of another link. Wait until tomorrow, which I am sure you will be able to do.
