For The First Time In 71 Years, The Cubs Are NL Pennant Winners

By

We’re officially in unchartered territory, Cardinals fans.

That pic above? It’s not Photoshopped. The Wrigley marquee has had an electronic message board since 1982. And for the first time ever, the lights read: ‘National League Champions’.

Since their last appearance in the World Series (1945), the Cardinals have played in 11. Generations have come and gone without seeing what we saw last night. ‘Once in a lifetime’ sometimes isn’t actually once in a lifetime, but I’m very confident you won’t personally witness a 71-year pennant drought end again.

It hasn’t been a stellar 2016 for St. Louis sports.

Why not be a part of history?

So I went to Wrigleyville last night to take it all in. The good, the bad… another Bartman? Turns out it was one of the biggest parties the neighboorhood had ever thrown.

Here’s my view when the Cubs clinched. Warning… you probably shouldn’t press play.

Yup.

That happened.

Listen, some of you reading this probably are disappointed that the Cubs loooooooong history of pain and suffering is coming to an end. But as a dude that has many Cubs fans as friends, I’m at least happy for their happiness.

That being said, if Mo wants to bookmark these videos and do everything he can to allow St. Louis to have a similar party next October, please, by all means.

We’ll see if the Cubs can close the deal this week. The World Series starts Tuesday in Cleveland.
