“Scored tickets to tonight’s Red Sox/Cubs game?” says Spence.
“Yup,” says Admin.
“A source,” Admin says. “Should be a good night. As I’m sure B. Stover could tell you, the Cubs haven’t been to Fenway Park since the World Series in 1918. Won by the Red Sox – their last World Series championship until 2004. And of course Babe Ruth pitched for the Sox in the 1918 series. There’s also some speculation that it was fixed, just like the 1919 series. The players took big pay cuts during the war, and gamblers infested the game in those days, even roaming the stands to take bets.”
“Wonder if they’ll introduce anyone who saw that series?” Spence says.
“That’s what I’m hoping. A ten-year old kid who saw one of the games would be 103.”
“Do you want to be 103 ever?” Spence says.
“Ask me when I’m 102.”
