World Champions / by Michael Durr

Someday has finally arrived. The Chicago Cubs are the World Series Champions. Throughout my life, I have gone through ups and downs with the sport of baseball. I played t-ball as a young kid and continued playing for a while after that. However, growing up in the era of Michael Jordan, basketball quickly stole my attention. I played basketball in grade school and into high school. In respect to baseball, I guess I have always been somewhat of a bandwagon fan. I remember the days of Andre Dawson and Ryan Sandberg. I remember shifting my attention to the White Sox during the years of the Big Hurt and then shifted back to follow the Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire home run race. I also remember being in college when the infamous Bartman game happened. There was an outdoor watch party down the street and I remember on my way home a door came flying off a balcony. It was in that moment I realized that a Cubs World Series would be absolutely insane.

After 108 years of waiting.

It didn't disappoint.

This is the year.
