But in the End the Great Marlin Wins!

What's left of him anyway...

If you are an English teacher or professor have your students read The Old Man and the Sea and watch the World Series--see if they can make the connections between big money and nature (the young Marlins).

From Hemmingway's The Old Man and the Sea:

"In the American League it is the Yankees as I said," the old man said happily.

"They lost today," the boy told him.

"That means nothing. The great DiMaggio is himself again."
