History has been made tonight. For the first time in 108 years, the Cubs are World Series Champions! I can’t believe I’m able to type that, let alone witness it with my own eyes. No more curses. No more Billy Goats. No more Steve Bartman. No more laughter. Just celebrating, jubilation, and vindication in Chicago.
What an epic game 7 World Series. Back and forth action. Just when you thought the game was over, the over team would make a run. The suspense. The anticipation. The drama and excitement. The emotions. A lead off home run. A game tying home run in the 8th inning. Extra innings. A rain delay. A game decided by one run. Game 7 had everything you could possibly want in a game 7.
This is a moment in sports history that will be remembered forever. This is story we will tell our children and grandchild. The Cubs won a World Series in my lifetime. This World Series matchup was a long time in the making, 176 years to be exact, and it more than lived up to the hype. It exceed the expectations. Moments like these is what makes sports so great.
As a sports and baseball fan, you couldn’t have asked for a better match up. This is the type of matchup with the perfect storyline that sells itself. One team is guaranteed to end its championship drought, while the other team is unfortunate in that its drought will continue.
Whether your a Cubs or Indians fan, you’re still invested just because of the two teams trying to make history.
Without Alrodis Chapman the Cubs don’t win the World Series. His 8 out performance in game 6 was legendary. He put an entire city and franchise that hadn’t won in 108 years on his back.
Congratulations to the 2016 World Series championships, the Chicago Cubs. You deserve this.
Hats off to the Indians who played a phenomenal game and series. What they accomplish this season despite all the injuries is remarkable.
