On November 2nd 2016 the Chicago Cubs made history. 106 year’s have come and gone since the Cubbie’s won a World Series.
Frenchie and I were on the edge of our seats watching the 7th game of the World Series. I told him I wonder how many people actually had a heart attack tonight–sounds crazy? Not really if you watched this history unfold before your eyes you know exactly what I am talking about. Sports announcers, and social media made this fact very clear several times proclaiming if you have a heart condition you should use caution watching the game.
Going into overtime we watched as fans from both Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians were biting their nails, sitting on the edge of their seats, covering their eyes and some watching with blinders on as they tuned out all worries of the world to see the ending of the great Bambino Curse. A win for either side was going to make history Cleveland Indians have not had a win for over 60 years. Frenchie and I would have been happy for either team, but watching grown men cry, and embrace each other was touching and gave hope for people to NEVER GIVE UP.
As with all games, there has to be a winner and a loser. I knew with thousands of people watching half would leave very happy and half would leave very sad-but all would leave completely exhausted as they cheered on their team. Knowing Dr. Kreymerman is from Cleveland I began texting him-needless to say he went to bed disappointed. I was very impressed with the classy response from the Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona-who has never lost a World Series Game — he gave a very compelling speech in congratulating the winning Cubs team.
Days after the game ended Chicago Cubs fans across the nation are celebrating I imagine they will be honoring this win for years to come. Frenchie and I attend the spring training games every year here in Arizona-with that being said….Arizona for the most part are all Cubbies fans. They maintained a ‘never give up’ demeanor throughout the entire season and it paid off–Congratulations are an understatement-they deserved to feel proud and grateful for this historical win.
