What a travesty for that guy. He didn't do anything any of us wouldn't have done. Time to forgive and forget.

As a Cubs fan my whole life, I'm still shocked..

The great moment I'll never forget was when my father (75 years old and less than adequate health) calls me crying about the win. Crying that he actually saw this in his lifetime and believed he'd die before it would happen. A truly remarkable moment to experience, hard to express, but any true fan of a team I think could understand to a certain degree what my father felt watching/following/believing in this team for so many years...

I'm beyond happy I got to experience this tonight, but more than anything, my father was able to experience this!

Bread and circuses. Maybe you should worry about more important things.



If there's anything more important than the cubs, I want it caught and shot.
Being chicago that is likely possible.

Congratulations!

But there is one thing that i don´t understand.
Why is every US american championship a WORLD series thing?
Because the rest of the world doesn´t matter that much for baseball and american football?
It´s like we would call the Deutsche Meisterschaft simply Weltmeisterschaft, would call the German championship simply World championship...
Doesn´t make much sense, if the rest of the world isn´t involved, or am i wrong?
Some say it´s megalomania, but i am not sure...

I was going to be happy, whoever won but I am glad it's the Cubbies. It must be surreal to wake up in Chicago this morning.

Don't expect an honest answer, there will be none.

I asked the same some time ago, didn't expect an useful answer, wasn't disappointed.


In what kind of sports did the cups win?

Yes, because life is better spent worrying than enjoying. It's sad how many people feel this way.

You worry about the myriad billions of "more important things" - I'll bask in the victory, take my kids to the park and grill a big juicy steak tonight. I'm even going to "waste" some MAPP gas heating up my steak brand to brand them with W's.

While grilling, instead of fretting over the disappearing rainforest or the presidential election, I'm going to indulge in the "useless" acts of listening to music and drinking a beer.

I'll take my bread and circuses, you feel free to cower and worry about "more important things."

Jhn - much the same here!! So many family memories tied to the Cubs, I can vividly picture many of those who've passed on and their reactions (up and down moments) when I was 8 years old during the '84 playoffs.

My giant plexiglass 'W' in my backyard will be seen by thousands of drivers today.

My only Cubs story is that I went to school with a young lady who paid her way through school by being a Yagermeister Girl for the Cubs is the 80's.

(she's now a highly successful surgeon)

She had some wild stories about Harry Caray.

Congrats to the Cubbies!

being a cleveland native I've seen the Indians lose three world series and that was by far the worse sports experiences I'll ever witness

rather not even get to the world series for 108 years then lose in the 10th inning

barely even a home game with all the Cubs fans

Yeah.. .just a game, but isn't everything we humans do? As a Chicago ex-pat and fan by dna, I have loads of family memories tied to the Cubs and wish they all were still alive to see this... it is ... momentous.

The whole thing had a surreal air.

Wow.

And you guys played a hell of a game!!!! What a team to beat....we both wanted it badly!!!
I'm sad someone had to lose but 108 years hanging over us...my Uncle's and Grandfather are all die-hard Cubs fans and I follow them mostly...no bandwagon here...it was an emotional night for both teams and The Indians brought it all right...major respect for them!!!

Cubs fan keeps his promise; listens to Cubs game at fathers grave site



A North Carolina man drove to his father's grave site in Indiana to listen to the Chicago Cubs win Game 7 of the World Series, keeping a pledge the men made to each other.



The younger Williams told WTHR-TV he and his father had a pact: When the Cubs got into the World Series again, they would listen to the games together.



He kept his promise, sitting in a fold-out chair draped with a Cubs "W" victory flag.



The sporting world has its flaws...but the way it can bring people together, and create bonds like this one is undeniable.
