That was an unbelievable ending to an unbelievable World Series. Congrats to the Cubs and their fans for waiting it out 108 years. Theo Epstein should be the president.
George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.
I never thought highly of Little as a manager prior to 5 outs to go on that awful October night. However, he did win over 90 games in both of his seasons as a major league manager, so he does have a better resume than other recycled managers.
