I waited twenty-seven years for this. The Cubs? One-hundred and eight. I had a feeling Game 7 of the 2016 World Series would be a close nail biter, but this truly earned the "historic" moniker. When the Cleveland Indians answered in the eighth inning to tie the score 6-6, I joined legions of Cub fans around the world in their anxiety, thoughts of goats. Answerless Inning Nine. Then, a rain delay! Sleep deprivation was on my mind but nothing short of a NyQuil highball would keep me from watching to the end.
Switch hitter Ben Zobrist sealed the deal. The thirty-five year old hit a double inside third base to bring in Albert Almora for the ultimate 8-7 victory. Ben would also win a very well deserved MVP award.
So much to say about this win. So tired right now. Full day of work ahead. For now, FLY THE W!!!!!
I hope Harry Caray and Neil Rogers are celebrating somewhere! CUBS WIN!!!
