HOORAY! CHICAGO CUBS 2016 WORLD CHAMPIONS

The long held hope of teenage left field bleacher bum was made manifest in Cleveland tonight. Gone was Leo Durocher, Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Billy Williams, Randy Hundley, Billy Williams, Ferguson Jenkins, Glen Beckett, Don Kissinger. . . How the hell do you remember these things after nearly 50 years? Because your little desperate fan heart so was so damn heartbroken when the season went into the toilet, aka the September swoon. I was there, in Wrigley Field,  the day the music died. No man could break my heart more than the Cubs that year. Not even the kind words …
