Chicago Cubs Bury Curse With First World Series Title in 108 Years

The Chicago Cubs finally got out from behind the (190)8 ball, winning their first World Series in 108 years and ending the longest championship drought by any major American sports team.

The Cubs — America’s most lovable sad sacks, its glorious sporting schlemiels, its embodiment of the jinx — defeated the Indians 8-7 in an incredible 10-inning marathon that stretched into Thursday morning in Cleveland. And the Billy Goat Tavern needs a new gimmick.

Well-worn legend dictated that the Cubs would never win another World Series thanks to the Curse of the Billy Goat.
