    For the first time in 108 years, the Chicago Cubs won the MLB 2016 World Series, which is not news to too many of us. But the volunteers at Warwick Bethel have an interesting opportunity today. They can congratulate Tony Morris on seeing another Chicago Cub win. He is of the generation of 1914, along with most, if not the rest, of the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses.

    While Tony didn't get to see the last WS victory for the Cubbies with his own eyes (1908), he "kinda?" did. Since he is of the second overlapping "group" of the generation of the Jehovah's Witness anointed of 1914, (did I digress? oh no that's what they teach) that means HIS GENERATION was around to see there previous WS win!

    So let's all congratulate the Governing Body, perhaps they thought their generation would never see another Cubs win, since it's been 108 years since last happened, but IT DID!!! Congrats to them! High fives all around!

    Actually a generation is about 25-30 years by definition. So it was the 3rd to 4th Governing Body generation to see the Cubs win it all. I'm totally happy for Cubs fans and the Cubs ! But I don't think the GB gives a damn unless the Cubs owners donated their winnings to WT " kingdom interests " . Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    Thank you for drawing this parallel. You example shows how close we are to the day of judgement. It all happens within one (or two or three or four overlapping) generation.

    I just had the brainwave why flipper's 20-30 year procreating generation has been changed by wt to the overlapping anointed: The anointed, according to Rev. 14 (I know, it's symbolic, but) , are "undefiled with women", non-procreating.--They are the childless anointed overlappers like Fred. Franz, not T.Morris. Franz was alive in 108, but 5 years away from his baptism in 1913, 6 from 1914. Wt still celebrates their home run of 1914, althoug the replay shows they cheated, only the date was real, the rest fluff. wt dropped the ball in 1914, and they know it, wt has not had real a hit since 1879, really not ever.

    The Brooklyn Dodger aka wt did not have a real touchdown since 1879, they play in the wrong league, bible religiosity, should have moved to the boondocks right then, not 2016. Their star performer Rutherford, actually moved Beth partially to California earlier than 1957.

    Just like Armageddon, this Cubs victory is about 102 years late.
    The Jehovah's Witnesses have much in common with the world of the last Cubs World Series victory.

    It's probably even prophetic as everything prophetic in Watchtower Land seems to happen in or near October.

    Just like the 1908 Cubs lived in a world with no Mother's Day or Father's Day, so the Jehovah's Witnesses still do today.

    Just as probably virtually all major league baseball players in 1908 never went to college, so it is for the majority of JW's today.

    The first Model T Ford was produced in 1908 and later, the 4 door sedan was to become the standard for all JW's.

    Before taking the field that spring, the 1908 Cubs heard about something new in New York City- a 700 pound ball with a 5 foot diameter was dropped from a flagpole at Midnight to mark the start of 1908. JW's would have heard about that too and have learned to drop the ball all the time when it comes to the passing of time. (Okay, that one was a stretch.)

    The practice of putting Gideon Bibles in hotel rooms was started in November of 1908 in Superior, Montana. The Witnesses have been trying for 100 years to put their Bible within arms reach of people since about that time, too.

    And the greatest (and maybe most prophetic) thing the 1908 Cubs and the Jehovah's Witnesses have in common is that, after awhile passed without further victories, people started to feel for the Cubs and they even became the Lovable Losers. This actually created their fan base and has helped sell Cubs merchandise throughout the years. Many people feel sorry for the JW's because their precious Armageddon never gets here. While they don't really form a "fan" base, the same people who feel sorry for them often take their literature out of pity and give them a dollar.
