Chicago Cubs fans are celebrating today after their team finally wins a World Series. The Cubs overcoming incredible odds to earn the win in a game which kept us all on the edge of our seats. Fox News correspondent Joel Waldman is outside progressive field with more.
It’s something Chicago fans have been waiting to celebrate for more than a century — and believe it or not, the Chicago Cubs are the new World Series champs.
For these fans, it doesn’t matter that they did it on the road. All they care about is that after 108 years… the Cubs have finally brought a World Series win home to Chicago.
“… I’ve been waiting for a long time. Seventy-six-years-old. I couldn’t wait to finally get a championship. And they did for me tonight! Finally!”
The victory did not come easy, with the Cleveland Indians tying the game in the eighth with a two-run homer.
Players and fans then had to endure a 17-minute rain delay before heading to extra innings.
But, it was all worth it for the Cubs faithful…
Just look at the third baseman Kris Bryant’s expression as he threw to first base for the final out.
“That’s one of the best games anybody will ever see.”
History did not seem to favor a Chicago victory.
These Cubs are the first team to overcome a three-to-one series deficit in thirty-one years. They are also the first champs to win games six and seven on the road since 1979. Meantime, Cleveland’s quest to end a nearly 7-decade championship drought drags on.
“It hurts because we care. But they need to walk with their head held high because they left nothing on the field.”
And just to put a little more perspective on it, the Cubs last won a World Series in 1908. Wrigley Field did not open until 1914.
