Chicago Cubs end "curse", win World Series
The last time the Chicago Cubs won the Major League Baseball's World Series it was 1908. Mark Twain was still alive, Theodore Roosevelt was president, the periodic table had only 85 elements on it, ticket prices were at $1.50.
Fast forward 108 years later, the Cubs and Indians force a 10th inning with a 17-minute rain delay which gave the Cubs time to regroup that seemed to reset the game for the Cubs.
"We regrouped during the rain delay...Give our guys all the credit...What a bunch of professionals..We never quit." says Joe Maddon.
It certainly wasn't easy for the Cubs, making a comeback from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series on the road since the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates. With an epic Game 7 clocking in at 4 hours and 28 minutes, it was truly a well deserved win. What a time to be alive! Congratulations Cubs!
The parade will begin at 11 a.m. (local time), with team buses leaving Wrigley Field at 10 a.m.
The official procession will travel along Michigan Avenue between Oak and Ohio and then along Columbus between Monroe and Balbo. Fans who want to catch the downtown parade are encouraged to see them along this route. c/o Sun Times
