It’s been a long time in the making, 108 years to be exact. Through decade after decade of disappointment, fans of the Chicago Cubs held faith that it would finally happen, and on October 2nd, 2016 it finally did.
The Cubbies won The World Series in dramatic fashion by beating the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in extra innings. They did the impossible by coming back from a 3-1 series deficit after blowing a three-run lead in the bottom of the eighth inning to beat a great Cleveland team that was trying to overcome their own championship drought.

The curse has been broken, the fans have been satisfied, the sports world has a new team on the mountain top, and it’s almost unbelievable to believe it’s the Chicago Cubs!
