Chicago Cubs Fans Gather To Watch Game 7 Of The World Series Against The Cleveland Indians Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images

Very early on November 3, 2016, in this, the year Two Thousand Sixteen in the Common Era, the Chicago Cubs defeated Cleveland to become World Series Champions for the first time in one hundred and eight years. It was an unbelievable, nail-biting, Arsenal-esque finale to an incredible World Series. Congrats to TSF’s own Cubs fan Travis King, who would probably be asleep in a ditch somewhere if he didn’t have to do important work things today.

There is no bigger story in world sport today.
