Congratulations to the Chicago Cubs. The last time they reached the world series I was two years old, my family got its first (black and white) TV, WWII had just ended, and humanity's "alien" adventures were about to change everything. 1989 was a key year in our alien journey ... In my book Sarah and Alexander - on September 3, 1989 - Sarah planted a seed that would grow into the next symbolic tree - representing the evolution of humanity in the alchemy of time.
Chicago Cubs: City parties as baseball 'curse' ends after 71 years BBC - October 23, 2016
Chicago has been celebrating after the Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, taking the team into the baseball World Series for the first time since 1945. They partied outside Wrigley Field stadium after the Curse of the Billy Goat - supposedly placed on the Cubs by a disgruntled fan - was finally lifted. The team's decades in the wilderness had become the stuff of legend. In the 1989 film Back to the Future II, a 2015 World Series win for the Chicago team was dubbed a "long shot". That long shot came one step closer on Saturday when the Cubs beat the Dodgers in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series.
