Beat the Phillies

Let’s hope that that Philadelphia Phillies don’t win the World Series. 

The global economy cannot afford it.

This from Morning Brew sums it up…..

“Are we about to enter an economic crisis? Could be. But don’t look at unemployment, interest rate hikes, or the housing market for clues. A better indicator is whether the Philadelphia Phillies win the World Series.

As the baseball historians on the Brew’s social media team found, over the past 100 years the surest sign of an economic downturn has been a Philly-based baseball team winning the World Series. It happened in 1929, 1930, 1980, and 2008.”

I’m not being mean spirited.

I do have a soft spot for the Phillies. I grew up watching Mike Schmidt playing 3rd base.

However, last night the Phillies beat the Yankees for a berth in the World Series where they will meet the Houston Astros.

For the sake of the economy, 

Go Astros !
