Cubs fans are singing like they are at the Cottage.  I don't know if they always do this, but it's pretty cool.

Not a baseball fan but having two teams that have not been to series in so long is pretty cool.  I would compare it to Leicester City in Premier League winning it all.

6-6 in the 9th.  Nail biting time for fans of both clubs.

Missus rooting for Cubs.  My mums side of the family rooting for Indians.  Me couldn't care because I know I'm going to hear it from one side or the other.   fp.gif

5 million people showed up for the Cubs' victory parade through Chicago.  The line stretched over 9 and a half miles.    If only my little club by the river could do that, win it all.

People waited for hours and stood 200 feet away to get a glimpse of a bus driving by for 30 seconds.  Great way to spend the day.   :doh:
