What a moment for Cubs fans.
The Chicago Cubs are champions after beating the Cleveland Indians, 8–7, in Game 7 of the World Series.
For 108 years, the North Side of Chicago and Cubs fans all over the world have waited for a World Series title. And in the early hours of Thursday morning, Cubs fans finally got their wish.
After the game, Sports Illustrated asked Cubs fans to share stories about what the 2016 World Series championship means to them. We rounded up the best.
