The Atlanta Braves beat the Los Angeles Dodgers last night in the second game of the play-offs, 4-3.
(The Dodgers won the first one.) I so wish I could have been there! It looked as if almost everyone was on their feet chopping away for this exciting yet nail-biting baseball game.
It has given me great pleasure to watch the Braves this year. I always call my Dad and we "watch" the game together and discuss what we think will happen...My Dad's TV is at least 7 or 8 seconds before mine (he has satellite and I have cable) so you just can't imagine how fun it is to hear a low whistle or joyful shout and then I know the Braves have either had a good hit OR a homerun! ("Oh, he struck out", I will say with great dismay, and my Dad will laugh and say, "Why, he's already sitting in the dugout!").
LAST GOVT SHUTDOWN- 1995.
The last time that we had a government shut-down was 1995 which was the only year that the Atlanta Braves won the World Series!
