It's The End Of The World As We Know It...

Tsunamis. Hurricanes. Earthquakes. Mudslides. Fires.

Is it any wonder that people think that the final days are really approaching -- or here?

Be on the lookout for further overwhelming events -- nigh bordering on the supernatural -- that suggest that "the end" truly is near.


UPDATE I: Yes, I am fully aware that there would be a greater likelihood of the world ending were it the other Chicago team in the World Series. Having the Cubs winning the year right after the Red Sox would seem like a flagrant tempting of fate. However, arguably, the need to overcome the taint of the 1919 "Black Sox" scandal puts the "Pale Hose" century-long dark cloud right up there with the "Curse of the Babe."

UPDATE II: The screaming that you will likely hear tonight if Houston closes out the National League Championship Series will be coming from Tampa, Florida. It will be Mr. George M. Steinbrenner as he sees former Yankee Andy Pettitte clinching a first-ever World Series appearance for the Astros the night after former Yankee Jose Contreras threw a complete-game series clinching victory for the Chicago White Sox -- putting them in the Fall Classic for the first time in 46 years. If Pettitte doesn't do it tonight, former Yankee Roger Clemons has the opportunity to do it on Wednesday. Then, of course, there is former Yankee Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez helping the White Sox from the bullpen. Hmm...wonder if the Yankee overall pitching staff would have been a bit better with any of these guys?
