You’d be hard-pressed to find a better time of year to be a sports fan. With all due respect to March (spring training and March Madness), I think October often ends up being the most exciting month.
The combination of the NFL season with Major League Baseball’s postseason provides a lot of excitement. There’s just something about October that takes me back to Octobers of my past and all of the great Fall Classics played in my lifetime. I remember where I was this time of year in:
1987: Twins defeat St. Louis in seven games
1988: Kirk Gibson’s Game 1 homer propels Dodgers to title
1991: Twins top Braves in one of the greatest World Series
1997: Marlins edge Cleveland in 11th inning of Game 7
2001: D’Backs win Game 7 with Mariano Rivera on the mound
Hopefully, something special happens this time around.
