The intent of this post is to have a little fun, but I run the risk of alienating Chicago Cubs’ fans . . .
The Kansas City Star has run an article of how the world has changed since the Cubs last won the World Series in 1908. It seems an appropriate article to run here, as it was only six years before the start of World War I:
It is often said that World War I changed everything. Did that include the Cubs’ ability to win a World Series?
By the way, there’s a Kansas connection in the photo that accompanies this article. Shortstop Joe Tinker was born in the Atchison County town of Muscotah.
