Guess who's coming to the World Series?

It starts Tuesday night, but it only happens every 71 years.

The World Series? Is it a series of worlds, like in the multiverse theory?
I have to assume it is some kind of sporting sportsiness, but whatever it is, it has a ridiculous name.
History has taught us that we don't learn from the past.

It's a baseball competition where two teams from both divisions compete to see who can win 4 games out of 7. It's a series of baseball games to see who is the best in the world. The Chicago Cubs have not been to one in 71 years and have not won one in 108 years. It's kind of a special moment in sports history.

It's also a dumb name because it's between a bunch of American teams and Toronto. If there was a baseball world cup or something then it should be called the world series. Even then though it would only be between a handful of countries based on the Olympics list

It's just that there are not a lot of whole developed american-class major leagues out there.
btw Toronto more or less got absolutely destroyed. Sorry about that.
Also I do want to note that the Atlanta Braves won the 1995 world series, their first world series win, against the Cleveland Indians. I just find that mildly interesting, since around that time the Braves went from being the worst to first, kind of like the cubs have done.

Bill Murray seems pretty excited that the Cubs are in the World Series.

I didn't watch baseball last night because I was busy watching Warriors lose to Spurs.

The Jazz also lost to the Trail Blazers.
