Life is a Skeeter Davis song, indeed.
The Royals won the World Series for the first time since 1985. At the beginning of "The Quacking Dead", Duck Grimes knew it was the end of the world when he saw that the Royals were the World champions in a newspaper. Look out for zombie ducks!
Congrats to the Royals on a job well-done. As for "The Quacking Dead", I'm not sure if I should change the baseball team mentioned on the newspaper to a less glorious team or just keep it the same, kind of like "Dewey Defeats Truman". Darn my poor powers of precognition.
