Chicago Cubs World Series Victory Makes Baseball History

With sports there are always moments that stick with you forever. The loveable losers, the Chicago Cubs ended their 108 year old championship drought on November 3, 2016. Game 7 of the World Series just ended and I am so excited for the city of Chicago and for all of those fans that have been along for the ride since the day they realized they loved the Cubs.


It was a great game.

It had every twist and turn. Chicago almost won the game in the first 9 innings but they had used their best relief pitcher Aroldis Chapman far too much over the past few games. He was exhausted and it showed when he singlehandedly almost gave the game, the World Series title away to Cleveland. Tonight was all about appreciating the moment, anticipating every pitch that brought Chicago one step closer to achieving their goal. The game even had a rain delay to make things even more dramatic. The Cubs did win but what should not be overlooked was the fact that Cleveland was up 3 games to 1 in this series and Chicago would not give up. One game at a time, they fought their way back into the series. They were not going to be denied. In sports, Game 7 usually brings out the best in athletes and tonight was no exception. Both teams put up a hell of a fight but in the end, the Chicago Cubs did what they have not been able to do in 108 years. They won the big one.


In sports, winning teams rely on talent, chemistry and sometimes even luck. Many Cubs teams over the years may have had the talent and chemistry but little to no luck for 108 years. That all ended last night and it was incredible. The fear of losing crept in to their fan base late into the night, but it was all gone when one of the Cubs veteran players Ben Zobrist stepped up to the plate and got the hit that delivered the go ahead run in the top of the 10th inning, the biggest hit in Cubs history. There was even a little bit of drama when Cleveland came to bat in the bottom of the 10th inning when they could have tied the game. This time was different and they got the final out. This time around they were a team of destiny. So many young and talented players like Javier Baez, Kris Bryant, Dexter Fowler and Anthony Rizzo make up this special team that is sure to bring a lot more joy to the city of Chicago for many years to come.

As a baseball fan you appreciate the moments when history is made and I know that I’ll always remember where I was and what I was doing the exact moment when the Cubbies finally won it all.
