As you’ve probably heard by now, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series last night by defeating the Cleveland Indians in an epic game 7 that went to extra innings. Sure, you’re probably sick of us talking about them, but let’s face it, we’re huge Cubs fans here at theCHIVE and we can’t get enough of all of this, despite the fact that we’re all far too hungover.
The collective exhale and shout for joy by the entire city of Chicago was heard around the country. A city that has had their hopes flattened by their lovable losers partied like it was 1908, the last time the Cubs won the World Series.
It’s remarkable to think how long that fan base has waited for a championship, but things certainly got a little crazy this past week as the North Siders watched their Cubs march to the championship.
