Dodgers’ World Series bet came through, but Game 6 play did not

While New Yorkers know Mayor de Blasio’s place in history as #worstmayorever is forever, Bill is not so sure. So he may choose to block Steve Cohen’s purchase of the Mets, to seal the deal. A Metsfanslivesmatter protest is in the works. … It’s Back! The KFC Firelog, scented with 11 herbs and spices, is returning for the holiday season. Also available is the heart-warming NewYorkLog, designed for those who have been quarantining all year. Among the scents emanating through your home include the Hudson River, subway car and the summer dumpster which hasn’t been emptied due to cost-cutting measures.

The best team in baseball, the Los Angeles Dodgers, are World Series champions. They beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1, taking the series in six games. Rays took an early lead when Randy Arozarena hit a homer off Tony Gonsolin in the opening frame. And with Blake Snell tossing a one-hitter through five innings we saw Walker Buehler in the dugout planning his strategy for Game 7. But LA’s superior lineup got to Snell for a run in the sixth, took a lead and went on to claim their first title since 1988.

We had the Dodgers to win the series. Lost our Game 6 wager on the Rays. Split on the last night of the season leaves us at -798 hershisers.
