*****

It had to happen eventually.

Luck didn't last forever.

The newspaper lying innocently on the cafeteria table in front of him was already a day old, and Jack still couldn't quite believe it. SG-1 had been off-world so much lately that he'd lost track of what was happening on his own planet.

He really hadn't expected to live to see it.

The incoming wormhole siren blared for the fourth time that day, and he left the paper there.

CHICAGO CUBS TO PLAY BOSTON RED SOX IN WORLD SERIES, it read.

A line down, in slightly smaller letters:

APOCALYPSE FEARED IMMINENT.
