Listen: Hamilton and Chicago Cubs mash-up is perfect

Tuesday October 18th, 2016

And there’s a hundred years they haven’t won, but just you wait, just you wait.​

Hamilton just opened in Chicago and tickets are likely difficult to acquire but this may be the next best thing. 

Matt Paolelli, Chris Paolelli, Joe Paolelli and Ben Paolelli of Cubs Memes have put together a parody of the opening number from Hamilton telling the Cubs history woes and how this is the year. If you're still looking for a team to root for in October and love the Broadway hit, this should do the trick.

Quiz: Can you name these random Cubs players?

Anthony Rizzo recently went to see Hamilton and approved.

Some day, the Cubs breaking the curse will be its own musical and it will blow us all away. Some day.
