Tonight, magic was made.
A 108-year drought was washed away following a 17-minute rain delay Wednesday night when the Chicago Cubs won the 2016 World Series. For generations, Cubs fans have fought bitterly over who was the best. In the end, their love of the game and the passion it drives was rewarded with a storybook ending.
It was a fairytale story – 108 years in the making. Seven games in the series. Two teams were staunchly fighting to end their post-season loss records. The tension was incredible! Game Seven matched at 6-6 is forced into extra innings. If that wasn’t enough, the rain stretched the season out just a few minutes longer.
Whether you support either the Cleveland Indians or the Chicago Cubs, the folks who saw the game will admit that they watched sports history in the making. Lovers of baseball will talk about this series for another 108 years. It’s a safe guess that almost every baseball fan will remember exactly where they were when they finally saw the Chicago Cubs win the World Series.
New York will always give Chi-town a friendly-spirited run for their money, but for now, the Chicago Cubs have earned our Kudos and support! Congratulations to the Cubbies. Great job!
