        Two weeks after the 1908 World Series, a Chicago native who'd never attended a baseball game penned the lyrics of what would become the year's biggest hit song, "Take Me Out To The Ball Game".

        And we allthought the Red Sox's old "curse of the Bambino" was noteworthy.
        "And their chances of getting back into this ballgame are growing dimmer by the batter."

        Put it in the books.

          My dad had one of these for his first car, bought it for $14...he immediately drove it from Chicago to WI with another brother in a rainstorm as they held umbrellas over their heads because the top was shredded.
