CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - In case you haven't heard - for the first time in 71 years - the Cubs are going to the World Series! This comes after knocking off the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday night to win the National League Pennant at Wrigley Field.
Fans, still in shock, went to the Friendly Confines today just to be close to history.
“I feel like I'm on hallowed ground here at Wrigley Field and my feet don't even touch the ground,” said Paul, a Cubs fan who was spotted with his family outside the ballpark. “I don't even want to think about work. It's going to be a hard week to even concentrate on anything but the Cubs.”
History was made Saturday night in front of 300,000 fans in Wrigleyville and in front of millions of fans watching on television.
Like Mitch Jensen, from Texas, who couldn’t sit still after the Cubs won Saturday night. Or Chicago transplant, Dave Peterlinz who now lives in Minnesota who fell to the ground and began weeping tears of pride at the last out.
Fans are proud of what the Cubs accomplished Saturday night.
“They blew them out and it was the best game ever,” said Dennis Gonzalez who also said homework is going to be difficult this week.
Even Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich tweeted a sentiment we're sure many share: “An eternity of waiting is over, thank heaven for our Cubs."
