Both Championship series could be over by the end of the day, with nothing to watch before a Royals-Mets World Series starts next Tuesday. Damn. That kinda sucks.
Whoops. Guess who who got distracted and lost track of the time?

In case you weren't aware - I dunno, maybe your Internet was down, and this was the first place you checked after it came back up, in which case I respect that - today is Back to the Future day, commemorating the date, then far in the future, to which Marty McFly traveled in Back to the Future II. It's been getting a lot of play, not least because of its
"prediction" the Cubs would win the World Series [though quite how they manage to "sweep in five" kinda throws the whole thing into question]. Even more impressively, they do it over Miami, who didn't even have a baseball franchise at the time of the movie.
However, looking at the other predictions made by the newspaper, it's clear the makers were not in possession of an actual time-machine. "Washington prepares for Queen Diana's visit"? Oops. Call that one a bit of a swing and a miss, considering we're a separation, a unfortunate encounter in a Parisian tunnel and the apparent immortality of QE2 from that coming to fruition. And "President says she's tried..."? Possibly just a little ahead of the curve on that one, depending on what happens comes next November. Though given Geraldine Ferraro had become the first female Veep nominee by a major party in 1984, that one was perhaps not so far-fetched.
