WCHS curse over

The Curse is Over!

After an arduous 10-inning game which was rain-delayed, the National League Champion Chicago Cubs defeated the American League Champion Cleveland Indians 8 runs to 7 to win their third overall World Series penant, their first since 1908. After all the talk and rumors about the Cubs winning another World Series, now, Doc Brown and Marty McFly from Back to the Future can rest easy, the Windy City can finally put the so-dubbed "bambino curse" to rest. The Blue Bruins can finally cry out their victory roar after 108 years in waiting. 

It was a wild seven inning trade between runs. Chicago struck first in the Top 1st. Seems like when they do so, Cleveland shoots back, then it becomes a stalemate for a couple of innings, then Chicago blasts a few more runs, another stalemate, Cleveland comes firing back to tie in the 8th, Chicago goes into extra innings, but not before Mother Nature had to throw a curveball into this wild World Series Game 7. After a couple of dicey defensive stints, one more out was all Chicago needed. Once they did, all of the Windy City went into a frenzy. 

While I do congratulate Cleveland on a well put effort, maybe next year will be Cleveland's year to get theirs. After all, we did not think Cleveland and Chicago would get this far. Like Kansas City the season prior, Chicago entered into a challenge not a lot of pundits thought they'd complete. Boy are they wrong now. So c'mon Cubs fans! Let's hear that roar one more time! - WCHS sports director Kaylon Combs
