The Cubs Are Headed Back to the NLCS … It’s Party Time!

Chicago Cubs

With their win last night against the Washington Nationals, the Chicago Cubs have safely advanced to their third consecutive National League Championship Series! #SustainedSuccess #Blessed #WeAreGood #LetsWinTwo #TurningAnOceanLiner #MikeQuade #etc.

And, finally, of course, the goal:

Lets. Go. Cubs.
