    Woohoo! My 90 year old mother-in-law, big Cub fan as is my wife, lived to see it. Unbelievable World Series, one of the best I've seen. Congrats to the Cubbies!

            Yep, 1908! The celebration in Chicago when the team returned was the 7th largest gathering of humans in recorded history.

              Class act:

              Cubs give World Series ring to Steve Bartman

              Trying to finally put the "Bartman play" to rest, the Chicago Cubs have awarded the beleaguered fan an official 2016 World Series ring.

              Steve Bartman, wearing glasses, headphones and a Cubs hat, reached out and deflected a foul ball along the left-field wall at Wrigley Field during Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS against the then-Florida Marlins. Left fielder Moises Alou responded by jumping up and down in protest, thinking he could have caught the ball. Chicago went on to squander a lead in that game as the Marlins tied the series, and the Cubs lost Game 7 to continue the franchise's epic World Series drought.
