A couple of things happened well into the night, things we don't learn about til morning. The Cubs, playing out in the Pacific time zone were behind 5-2 in the 9th inning. I had long gone to bed when the score first hit 5-2, thinking the Cubs would be going back to Chicago to play a game 5. Well. What do you know? They had one heck of a 9th inning and won the game 6-5 to move on to the National League Championship series against....
Well, we don't know who they play yet as the Dodgers pulled out an exciting win against Washington and they will play a game 5 in DC. Frankly I'm pulling for Washington, all this travel to the Pacific time zone can be wearying for eastern teams.
Then in the very earlier morning hours some how a car flew off I-44 in downtown St. Louis and landed on Broadway. Sadly the driver was killed in this accident. This is just awful and makes you wonder just how fast you have to be going to fly off the top of an interstate.
Neither of these two stories has anything to do with the other but they were both surprises this morning.
