Chicago Cubs Win First World Series In 108 Years

Some sports fans/gamblers out there just won WADS of cash on this one…

The Chicago Cubs FINALLY won the World Series after a 108 year-long drought…managing to beat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in 10 innings. Via ABC7:

Next year is here.

At exactly 11:47 local time, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series that has eluded them for 108 years. Fans who packed bars to watch the games on television near Wrigley Field – neither of which existed back in 1908 – erupted in cheers before swarming onto the streets just before midnight Wednesday to celebrate in the shadows of the statues of Cubs greats Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Ron Santo and legendary announcer Harry Caray.

As the game ended, the roar from inside the bars and the throng of fans on the street was deafening, before the crowds both inside and out sang “go Cubs go” at the top of their lungs.

Wow…their first win since 1908? Many people lived and died never getting a chance to see their team make it. (Sports) miracles do happen!

We are certain our Chicago folks are wilding out right about now…
