Just a reminder: end of the world coming up, October 21. During the World Series. Of course.

Surely not, though. God loves Wisconsin too much to let that happen. Doesn’t He? Or…could this be evidence that St. Louis is gonna win the NLCS?

Oh, right, you don’t know what I’m talking about. Remember Harold Camping?

Camping, 88, has scrutinized the Bible for almost 70 years and says he has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book. One night a few years ago, Camping, a civil engineer by trade, crunched the numbers and was stunned at what he’d found: The world will end May 21, 2011.

He was obviously wrong about that, but no matter. Crunching the numbers again, Camping discovered…an error!

Like we didn’t know that already.

But the error he discovered wasn’t the same one the rest of us discovered — you know, the one about the world not ending on May 21. No, now Camping decided the world would end on October 21. A week from now, and two days after the World Series starts.

Naturally, since the Brewers might be playing in their second-only World Series. And the Packers could be heading to a Thanksgiving Day matchup of undefeated division rivals. And the Badgers’ football team is outscoring the Badgers’ basketball team.

God, huh? What a nut.

On the other hand, Camping is also using the word “probably” this time. So, maybe never mind.

Not that you were minding.
