The Silent Series'

Minutes ago I saw a headline: "L.A. Dodgers Win World Series."

I had no idea the World Series was in process. Has Major League Baseball shrunk to golf ball size? "Next on Sports" is something I don't hear, so that would put me at a deficit for knowing what sports events are playing right now, but I've not overheard people talking about the series, nor have friends brought up the subject.

Now that I think about it, the NHL's Stanley Cup was won and I knew nothing about it till days later. And I have no idea who won the prize.

By the way, I was a "carded" baseball umpire. I knew that rulebook (National League Rules) like the back of my hand; though a few players and coaches would have begged to differ: "Hey, Umpy! Pull your hands out of your pockets!"
