- It’s just like Christmas Eve!
Cub fans could not be more excited! It’s history! It’s epic! It’s destiny!
Cubs just have to win! It’s our year! We have waited a lifetime!
So, the winner of the 2016 World Series will be either the Chicago Cubs or the Cleveland Indians!
We are just hours away from the first game of the 2016 World Series. The Cleveland Indians are hosting the first game at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio at 7:08 P.M. central time. It is a seven game series and the winner needs to take four games. Games one and two are at Cleveland on Tuesday and Wednesday. Games three through five are at Chicago on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Games six and seven will be at Cleveland on Tuesday, November 1st and Wednesday if needed. Take a deep breathe and hold on to your hat, it could be a wild ride!
The last time the Chicago Cubs participated in the world series was 1945 against the Detroit Tigers with Tigers winning four and the Cubs winning 3. This was just after World War II and many of the major players were still serving in the military. The Curse of the Billy Goat originated just before game four of the series. Billy Sianis owned a tavern called the Billy Goat Tavern. He was asked to leave Wrigley Field during game four of the world series because the odor of his pet goat, Murphy, was bothering other fans. He supposedly cursed the Cubs by uttering “Them Cubs, they ain’t gonna win no more.”
The Cubs did win the world series twice in 1907 and 1908 against the Detroit Tigers. At this time, they actually played in 3 world series’ back to back, losing to the Chicago White Sox in 1906. Teddy Roosevelt was president. Wrigley field had not yet been built. It became the home of the Cubs in 1914.
The Indians have not won a world series since 1948.
We’re excited! We’re buying their shirts and flags and everything else. We’re getting together with our other Cub fan friends to cheer for the cubbies!!! We’re hoping and praying for some runs and some victories!!! It’s our year!
Go Cubs Go!
We ain’t afraid of no goat!
