Cubs Win. Curse Over.

By Jim Thompson

This brave Indians fan got a championship tattoo before the game ... Tickets were cheap (if you're a billionaire) ... Charlie Sheen showed up at the game dressed like Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn ... Anthony Rizzo was an emotional mess midway through the game ... J.R. Smith got the home fans pumped by ripping off his shirt ... David Ross hit a home run in his final career game, then celebrated with a crotch bump ... LeBron James was at the game and went wild after Rajai Davis's eighth-inning homer (and yes, that blonde next to him is SI Swimsuit's Kate Bock) ... Kris Bryant was smiling as he assisted on the final out.

Then They Celebrated

WATCH: The Cubs celebrate in locker room following victory ... The internet celebrated, too ... The Cubs radio broadcast of the final out is pretty great ... Bill Murray's face after the final out was everything. So was his locker room interview with Theo Epstein ... Wrigleyville was a fun place to be after the game ... Newspapers from around the country are celebrating the Cubs ... It must've killed LeBron to congratulate the Cubs after the victory ... The championship parade is Friday. That should be nutso.

Sick of all the Cubs talk? Peyton Manning at the CMA Awards is a nice change of pace.

Who Sang It Best: We Can Work It Out

Taking a slight detour from the usual format. I think Stevie Wonder's version of We Can Work It Out is better than the original. What do you think?
