This is the first Cubs postseason win since 2003! That’s right, the 12 year drought is over! It’s been 70 years since the Cubs have made it to the World Series, and 107 years since they won the World Series. Let’s hope their amazing year continues for the next 3-4 weeks until they hoist that trophy!
Next comes the National League Division Series (NLDS), a best of five series against the St. Louis Cardinals. The first two games (Friday and Saturday) are in St. Louis (at 6:30 and 5:30 respectively), and then the series moves to Chicago for games three and four (if necessary) on Monday and Tuesday.
If the Cubs beat the Cardinals, then they go on to the best of seven National League Championship Series (NLCS) against either the Mets or the Dodgers.
If they win that series, they go back to the World Series for the first time since Jackie Robinson became the first black major league baseball player.
If they win the world series, they will have reset the clock and finally be world champions again for the first time since before the Titanic sunk!
Let’s go Cubbies! (FYI, for you non-Cub fans: this is the translation of the title of this post).
