A hundred years

Wow. Today is the one-hundredth anniversary of the copyright on the song Take Me Out to the Ball Game. Isn't it cool that the song came out in a year that the Cubbies won the World Series? Or did the song jinx them--after all, 1908 was the LAST year the Cubs won the Series. They now hold the distinction of being the only baseball team ever to play ninety nine seasons in a row without winning the series.
