Did you hear that the Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 100 years? So did their fans, and they came out in full force this morning for a massive parade in Chicago.

Watching this city support their team is a bit more than we can bear, so let's let the pictures do the talking. Check them out:

Grandfather Opens 32-Year-Old Beer After Cubs Win the World Series

It's been a big night for Cubs fans, who ended a 108-year losing streak to win the World Series against the Cleveland Indians. They're probably thirsty. Thirsty for old beer, that is. 

Ending a streak of his own, this grandfather finally opened a beer that he put in the fridge 32 years ago with a mental note "slam this bad boy when the Cubs win the the World Series." Let's just say, nothing makes a man thristier than their team winning the Fall Classic — thirstier for old beer, that is.

The chickens came home to roost — or the Cubs came home to roost or something —  last night, and he popped the top on this three-decade old Coors Banquet. Complete with pull-style tab can, the beer in question does not even fizz when he pours it into his proud Cubs mug. Reports say that the beer "smells like hell" and probably shouldn't be drunk. 

The family heard those reports, too. It smelled so bad that they wouldn't even let him drink it. After all, why would anyone want to celebrate a World Series win — more than a century in the making — in the emergency room because their grandfather was so thirsty for old beer. 

Be a winner, like the Cubs: Don't drink 30-year-old beer.

bill murry gives cubs fan world series ticket

This year’s World Series has been a pretty big one for Cubs fans. It probably has something to do with the fact that their team is in it for the first time since 1945. But for one fan, things got even better. How much better? How about "Bill Murray giving you a free ticket and hanging out with you all night" better?

Ok. Yeah, that’s pretty good.

Adding to his list of weird affectations, which includes just showing up at karaoke parties and kickball games, Mr. Murray got one lucky Cubs fan into Game 6, last night, and he even offered her nachos and stuff. It's like he's in a competing against himself to be the world's best person, and he's destroying the competition. 

Karen Michel, the diehard Cubs fan without a ticket, tells her story to People:

“I thought some people holding tickets might not show up or something, I figured I’d give it a shot but I wasn’t expecting much. It was crazy, Bill walked right by me, grabbed me and gave me a ticket! I said, ‘Where are we going?’ and he said, ‘You can come sit with me!’”

It’s all just so heartwarming, isn't? The two sat behind home plate together, watched the Cubs win, and got better seats than Al Roker. Al. Roker. It doesn’t get better than that, does it?

Michel says that the two "hit it off" and might even go to the opening of Mascot Hall of Fame in Whiting, Indiana, next year. If the pair shows up at the Mascot Hall of Fame in Whiting, Indiana, you can bet, we’ll cover it.


25-year-old Met's player, Wilmer Flores is a self-proclaimed Friends addict. Flores says he's watched every episode since starting the series 4 years ago.


“I don’t know. I just can’t stop watching it,” he told ESPN. “I don’t know -- on the road, when I’m home, every day -- I don’t want to watch anything else. I don’t know why. There’s something about that show."

By his second at bat, most of the 30,257 fans in the crowd clapped along to the theme song, proving we're all here for him (when the rain starts to pour).

baby names the sandlot baseball A High School Baseball Coach Let His Team Name His New Baby

A high school baseball coach promised his team that if they won 14 games in a row, they could name his baby. They were not doing well this season so he must have thought it was a long shot. Well, they did it and they want to name him Benjamin Smalls, after two characters from The Sandlot.  

This video was made just before they won that 14th game: 



It seems like mom still has some veto power but they'll be pretty disappointed if she chooses something else now. In fact, apparently David Evans, the writer of The Sandlot dropped by to wish them well.

Baseball player Bryce Harper was just named National League MVP last week. He also let the entire world know he doesn't want to be a meme.

The trouble with that is he pronounced meme like "meh-may" and thus was turned into a meme.

An interview with Scott Van Pelt on SportsCenter is where the MVP was where the gaf happened.

And a new meh-may was born...

Welcome to the Internet, Bryce.

We are a cruel people.
