When my brother Jim and I went to a family reunion in Mexico, Missouri a few years ago, he said he wanted a Saint Louis Cardinals' hat. I thought it would be fun to buy our Janne one too, since she is the ultimate Los Angeles Dodgers' fan.
Well the Dodgers were long forgotten by the time the World Series came around, but her annual $5 bet for the National League was still at stake with my brother-in0law Owen in Cedar Falls, Washington. In the 6th game, she retrieved the Cardinal hat for luck. It was simply the best baseball game any of us had seen in years.
