Goddam it! The Long March. FIFA World rankings.

The Astros are in the World Series!  That just should not be!  Go White Sox Go!  I was impressed by the fact that the White Sox hurlers had pitched four straight complete games in their series against the Angels.  That is so old school.
 
70 years ago today, the Long March was completed.  The Long March was one of the greatest, bravest, and most glorious strategic withdrawals or retreats of all history.  It was probably Andy Drummond’s idea to do it.
 
Latvia, the country of my ancestors with a population of three million is ranked 64th in FIFA’s soccer nation rankings.  China, the country in  which I currently reside, with a population of one point three billion, is ranked 65th.  The Chinese tell me with anguished expressions that Chinese football is very bad.  I don’t think they would appreciate my telling them about this.  It would be a severe loss of face for them.
