It would be fascinating to break down tonight’s game … if we could somehow pretend that our entire world didn’t just change.
THE CHICAGO CUBS ARE WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS! THEY CAME BACK FROM A 3-1 DEFICIT AND WON THE WORLD FREAKING SERIES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 108 YEARS! IT HAPPENED!!!
I know it will come, but I can’t imagine a time when I’m going to be able to talk about this without screaming it as loudly as I can.
We will get into this game at some point. Maybe tomorrow. I don’t know. I’m just soaking this in. It was a freaking crazy game (the huge early lead, the blown save, the extra innings runs … and Kyle Schwarber stole a base!), and a wholly appropriate way for the Cubs to finish this thing off.
I can’t thank you all enough for your readership, your support, your incredibly kind words this postseason, and for sharing this moment – this singularly blissful moment – with me.
Go Cubs. They went all the way.
Also, if you’re looking to pick up OFFICIAL postseason gear, including the brand new World Champion shirts and hats the Cubs are partying in, we now have a relationship with Fanatics. So, get the official gear here, and you support BN in the process:
