National Boston Cream Pie Day – an omen?

I do enjoy chocolate, but not those complicated desserts with six different types of chocolate all piled on each other.  The chocolate topping of a Boston Cream Pie nicely counterpoints the yellow butter cake and delicious creamy custard sandwiched between.  I really like Boston Cream Pie, even if it is more like a cake and less like a traditional pie.  Hey, it’s from Boston.  Gotta be wacky in some way.

So, today is National Boston Cream Pie Day and the 2018 World Series starts tonight featuring the Boston Red Sox against the Brooklyn Los Angeles Dodgers.  Now if this were national Cobb Salad Day or national barbecue chicken pizza day I would feel differently.  Or to go even further back, perhaps national egg cream day.  But it is not.  It is National Boston Cream Pie Day.  So due to the alignment of baseball championships and national days, gotta go with the Red Sox this year.  I’ll have Boston Cream Pie to celebrate when they win.  And then wait through the winter for Cincinnati Reds Spring Training.
