I was in Vietnam during the 1967 World Series when the Cardinals played the Red Sox. As a Coast Guard ENS, and a Deck Watch Officer, I bet $5.00 w/ a MA QM3 that the Cardinals would win, which they did.
I stood a lot of "Mid Watches" (midnite-to-0400) in Vietnam and this particular MA QM3 and I worked well together. Might see if I can find him on Facebook ... not to bet again, but just for old times sake.
No one has ever come back from 3-0 to win the World Series. The Red Sox came back from 3-0 to beat the Yankees in the 2004 ALCS .... the only time that has ever happened in the MLB playoffs.
