It was destiny, rains falls allowing Cubs to regroup after Indians tie it up. That and the weird coincidence of there being 108 stitches on a baseball. Moahaha. :200:

here. we need a tear jerker. you're welcome. :D

Cubs fan drives all day to fulfill a promise and listen to Game 7 at his father’s grave

Wayne Williams and his dad had a deal—when the Cubs made it to the World Series, they were going to listen to the games together. Williams’s father, also named Wayne, died in 1980 but Williams followed through on their pact.

I'm pulling for the cubs as soon as the Jays were ousted and I watched every minute of every game until the game tieing homer. I walked away not because I believed they would lose but because I was drained.

I got up at 3 to check the score so I got to wear my satisfaction smile a bit late, but not never.

Yay Cubs!!
Praise the lord and pass the ammunition

Lol, know the feeling.

Not sure how cheering for a team can have this effect, but I'm glad it does. What an awesome MLB playoffs.

Couple things:
Chicago Cubs were founded 1870, which makes them the oldest team in the league

Including 2016, they have been to the finals 11 times..... 3 wins & 8 losses

This is the greatest thing created by professional sports for millions of people every year, and when people question why we have them I know they could never understand.

I was all for the Jays and had fun watching their wins, but somehow the Cubs got me even more into it, what a game what a rush. I think I saw one of the games of the next 50 years and am better for it.

Usually I don't pay much attention to MLB until the playoffs. I suspect Jays fans are disappointed seeing them at bottom of their division & 3rd worst in American League.

Added: that's what can happen when they sell out future consideration for 1 pitcher who stayed a short time.
