The Chicago Cubs Win World Series For First Time In 108 Years

Posted on

Cubs fans this week had something huge to celebrate on Wednesday night. Their Chicago Cubs finally won the MLB World Series for the first time in 108 years. In a historic game against the Cleveland Indians, the Cubs took it 4-3.

It looks like the curse finally has been lifted, a curse that started way back in 1945. William “Billy Goat” Sianis bought two tickets to Game 4 of the Cubs’ World Series against the Detroit Tigers. One ticket was for himself and the other was for his goat that was the mascot for his tavern. The goat smelled so bad that fans complained until he had to be removed. Sianis was so angry that on the way out he said, “Them Cubs, they ain’t gonna win no more!”

Last night’s win also left team member Ben Zobrist as the very first player in Cubs history to win the World Series MVP with the team. The award only came around in 1955. This has been a good couple of years for Zobrist who was also a part of the World Series title team when he played with the Kansas City Royals. He had signed a $56 million contract in the off season with the Cubs.

Could Zobirst have been a good luck charm for the team?
