After years of loss and heartbreak, the Chicago Cubs finally came around to win the World Series. No matter which baseball team you root for, it is undeniable that the Cubs fought long and hard for their victory in the 2016 World Series.

The Cubs entered game 7 with fervor and a thirst for the title. Up until that game, it seemed that either Chicago or Cleveland could take home the honor of being champions.

Throughout the game, it seemed as though Chicago was going to take the lead, until a two-run home run by the Indians during the seventh inning, making the game a tie at 6-6.

With an extra inning, the Cubs managed to take the game at a final score of 8-7, even with a delay between the last two innings because of rain.

The Cubs have been waiting for this day for 108 years. Generations of sports fans celebrated as Chicago took the title and broke their losing streak.

A huge congratulations to a team that has not only lost with grace in the past, but won with grace this year.
