WHOAH... WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE?
As we talked about earlier in the week, today marks the exact 25th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake. Fittingly, the San Francisco Giants won the pennant last night and will represent the National League against the American League's Kansas City Royals in the World ("world") Series.
October 17th was also apparently the day a tornado struck London in 1091. Could you imagine a tornado hitting London nowadays? (Quick, someone call Sy-Fy for a Sharknado crossover event!)
