Each year, the baseball season has come and gone. It was first decades, then it went past a hundred years.

On Wednesday night, the 108-year misery of being known as the “Loveable Losers” ended. Now you call them the “Loveable Winners,” or they’ll love it better if you call them “Champions.”

The Chicago Cubs needed extra innings to defeat the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the World Series. The Cubs won the final game 8-7 in the unbelievable game.

This game may have saved the National Pastime. In recent years, Major League Baseball games were criticized as being too long. They were also criticized because they didn’t have enough stars.

The Cubs — who have young stars — showed that you do not need a superstar in the name of Mike Trout or Bryce Harper to win. They were considered the best team going into the season — and they ended the season on top.

A 108-years is a long time to go without a Championship. In many cases for Cubs fans, it was an entire lifetime.

While it’s their third World Series Championship, it is their most important one. Theo Epstein, the great architect, has erased a 194-years of curses with the Cubs and the Boston Red Sox.

The Cubs had one of the best rotations in baseball. They also were led by Joe Maddon, who made some questionable decisions in Game 7. Yet, with Ben Zobrist and Miguel Montero‘s key hits in the 10th inning, those bad decisions went away.

This is why you should love sports. You get to see droughts come to an end, while their fans celebrate in joy. Also, David Ross, the most lovable player on the Cubs roster, went out on top.

Let’s hope that they don’t have to go another 108-years before their next World Series Championship. Because it was the longest championship drought in sports history — and fans don’t deserve to go through that hurt again.

As fans were chanting in Friday, “Go Cubs Go!”
