It finally happened. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria. That’s right, the Cubs won the 2016 World Series, ending a 108 year drought by coming back strong with three wins in a row, clinching their victory over the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in the 10th inning of Game 7 on Wednesday night. After all that build-up, fans were understandably bursting with energy, perhaps none so much as Bill Murray:
It’s been quite the series for Murray. He impressed us by giving a complete stranger a world series ticket. He sang quite the rendition of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” and even crashed a White House press briefing to talk about the Cubs. After years of fandom, his team finally did it. I can’t believe I’m typing this: the Cubs are the World Series Champions. To put that in perspective, this was the front page of the Chicago Tribune the last time the Cubs won the series, a photo so old it is now public domain.
