Trump’s eccentric friend will soon go on trial. We don’t know much about what the prosecutors have on him because almost everything about that subject was censored from the Mueller Report in respect of an ongoing investigation.

The series ended with seven road victories. That has never happened in the history of major league baseball, not just in the World Series, but in any post-season series. The phenomenon transcends baseball. It is so rare that it has never happened in a post-season series in any major sport. Both the NBA and the NHL play post-season series that can extend to seven games, but there has never been an all-road series in a series of that length.
