What the Cubs' Win Means

Chris Hallbeck of Maximumble illustrated what many life long Cubs fans thought of after the 2016 World Series came to a close on Wednesday. It's a family thing.

Wayne Williams' father (also named Wayne Williams) was a lifelong Cubs fan, as well as a World War II Navy veteran. He died in 1980, never having seen his team win the World Series.

"I talked it out with my boys forever. I let them know that I told my dad - we had a pact. When the Cubs - not if, when - the Cubs got into the World Series, we would make sure we listen to the games together," Williams said.

Look, dad, here's your son, keeping his part of the bargain.

Williams drove from North Carolina to the Greenwood Forest Lawn Cemetery in Greenwood, Indiana, to watch the game with his father, who is buried in the military section. -via reddit

And here's another.

I was rooting for the Indians (Go Tribe!) but I was still smiling when they lost. It was a happy loss because I knew that the Cubs had it worse. 107 years! Entire generations of fans lived and died without a championship.

Cubs fans deserve this victory. Next year I hope it's the Indians' turn to break their drought.
