Are you ready for some #HYPE?
As if we weren’t all excited enough for the first World Series game at Wrigley Field in over 70 years, the Cubs and others have shared a number of exciting/fun videos that should either put you in the right mood or (more likely) just make you even more anxious for the game.

Next up, a couple of Cubs fans from Nebraska show us that it doesn’t have to be Christmas and you don’t have to live in Wrigleyville to light up your house and properly #FlyTheW. Check out this Halloween themed light-show rendition of our favorite song:

And finally, allow Theo Epstein’s best friend Eddie Vedder (he is also in a little band called Pearl Jam), serenade you with now not-so-distant dreams of the Cubs one day, going all the way (this video version was apparently created in 2008, but only just released this year):
