Go Cub Go! Hey Chicago What you say, Cubs are going to Win Today

The Year was 2016 and it finally happened, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series.  RIP, Curse of the Billy Goat, in a game 7 for the ages, the Cubs overcame the resilient Indians to win their first title since 1908 and wash away the last vestiges of the longest title drought in American Sports.  I watched every game that year along with my sister in law and brother in law.  I've been a Chicago Cubs' fan my whole life, being from Illinois and my dad listening to the games on the radio.  So for Father's day that year, I bought tickets for him, my two brothers and nephew to go see the Cubs play the Cardinals, they lost that game but I was so glad that i got tickets for Pops to see them play at Wrigley Field.

I got to go to a
game too, We stopped in Denver from our DisneyLand vacation and saw the Cubs play the Rockies, they lost that game too but I got to see the CUBS play after a 2 hour rain delay.  You should of been there I believe there more CUBs fans in Denver than Rockie Fans, it was fun oh and did i mention my brother lives in Cheyenne so we met him and his crew (wife and 4 kids) there.   

 But in the end, it all came down to Game 7 on Nov 2 10 innings. After trailing the Indians 3 games to 1 in the 2016 World Series, the Cubs mounted an EPIC comeback (which made grown men cry) to take the series in a dramatic 7th game that ended in a 8-7 score after 10 innings of play; with the WIN the Cubs claimed their 1st World Series title since 1908!!!  I've watched the series over again at least twice, it doesn't get old and I still get excited and scared at that last inning.  What an amazing moment in sports history.
