I'm pretty sure this qualifies as world news, or at least in my mind it does. LOL

I've been a Cubs fan since I was 10 and have lived and died with them (mostly died) since 1990. I am OVER THE MOON that they have finally - FINALLY, after 108 years - won a World Series.

This is one of the greatest things I've ever seen in my lifetime, and I'm not exaggerating. There is so much history and fandom lore with this team, I couldn't be happier that we've finally done it. For Harry, for Jack Brickhouse, for Ernie, for Ron, and for Arne who've all gone on ahead of us to be our angels in the outfield. For the legions of players who played their hearts out without winning a title. For the generations of fans who've lived and died without seeing a World Series.

My stepfather is 100 years old and I am thrilled to pieces he was awake to see history made. (He took a nap from innings 7-9 and woke back up after the rain delay.)

I said it to myself last night and I'll say it here: 7 games, a rain delay, and extra innings. Would the Cubs have done this ANY other way??

GO CUBS GO!

I'm not a Cubs fan or indeed a baseball fan, though I've been to a couple of Cardinal games when I lived in St Louis.

Wishing you the best congratulations though. I feel that this win for you is like the win I wish for that England wins the FIFA World Cup. Never happened in my lifetime and I feel like it might never.......and then there was this for you. Well done Cubs.

Haha! I am sure some people think so.

Being a south-sider, balance of probability is that Obama is a Sox fan. Of the two, Michelle is the Cubs fan.

Though I can see the temptation to think so. LOL
