It occurred to me recently it's almost time to think about scouring the Web for World Series tickets.
Wait a minute. Reality check. Sad to say, Chicago's two professional baseball teams -- the Cubs and the White Sox -- did not make this fall's Major League Baseball (MLB) playoffs, scheduled to start soon. So I won't be on the hunt for playoffs or World Series tickets after all. (I won't rub it in by telling you just where our guys are in the standings.)
