Tweet of the Day

The Chicago Cubs beat the Dodgers last night 5-0, which means they are going to the World Series. That hasn’t happened since 1945. They haven’t won a World Series since 1908, so I am assuming that’s the 1908 team who showed up as ghosts for yesterday’s league championship game. The Cubs will be playing the Cleveland Indians, who last won the World Series in 1948. The 2016 World Series begins Tuesday.

I've been a Dodger fan since they were in Brooklyn, and I was rooting for the Cubs. They've earned it!

Interesting bit of trivia ... the two teams playing in the World Series are the two teams that have gone the longest since LAST winning a World Championship.
● Chicago — 108 years since their last World Series win.
● Cleveland — 68 year since their last World Series win.

Either way, someone is going to break a decades-long drought.
