With help from above, Cubs finally win a title

Dexter Fowler, Javier Baez and David Ross all homered for the Cubs, but the most dramatic homer of the game was struck by Cleveland's Davis in the eighth inning.

Somewhere along the way the stories will be embellished, as if that is even possible. And it took ten innings to win it all in Game 7.

They might even make a movie out of it, though they'll have to write a new script. Although Chance, G Herbo and Common are all South Side, Chi natives, it's cool to see that they're all supportive of the North Side Cubbies.

"They never quit, either", Zobrist said.

Wednesday's Game 7 audience topped the 34.4 million viewers who watched the ABC's February 28 telecast of the 88th Annual Academy Awards. That was the hardest pitch Zobrist saw in the five-pitch sequence, too.

So long as Cleveland has Francisco Lindor, Corey Kluber, Andrew Miller and Terry Francona wearing Indians colors, the Tribe should be considered title contenders.

This one hurts for Cleveland fans, but not as much as 1997, when the Indians blew a late lead in Game 7 on a humid night in Florida and lost in extra innings to the Marlins.

Just to be clear how long it's been since the Cubs won, note that the best selling vehicle is a Model S, which those of you with bachelor degrees or higher may realize is the letter before T. That's right, the Cubs' losing streak is older than the Model T. He surrendered three hits and two intentional walks. It brings so many people together.

Obama, in Miami on Thursday to drum up support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, took a moment from his usual stump speech to hail the Cubs, the crosstown rivals of his beloved Chicago White Sox.

For them, and everyone who watched it. The Cubs' Jon Lester, typically a starter, came in to relieve.

Fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton, who is from Chicago and running to be Mr Obama's successor, also tweeted her joy.

It's been a long time since I was a baseball fan but growing up, I was IN TO IT. "I still think about and dream about or have nightmares about losing in the Finals. But curses and superstitions are not". Members of Chicago's Mounted Police unit along with others maintain their post outside Wrigley Field in Chicago on Thursday, Nov. 3, 2016, after the Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in Game 7 of the Major League Worl. "Obviously I would never go into a season saying, 'Well, I'm just not good enough [to win it all] so let's not make the playoffs.' I want to give my team an opportunity every year to play for the big one". "This organization, 108 years in the making, being able to be here my first year I'm really spoiled, obviously".

"I'm actually am still trying to look through the English language to find the exact words to say how incredible it felt to watch what was happening on that field", Emanuel said. The Cubs have been entrenched in popular culture as the loveable losers for over a century.

"I was sitting next to (catching coach) Mike Borzello, I said, He's going to hit one down the left-field line right here", designated hitter Kyle Schwarber said.

They are World Series champions. "100 years! Come on".
