Cubs win! Cubs win! Cubs win!
Scott Myers

My father, a Chicago-area native and lifelong Cubs fan, was taken to the hospital with unexplained seizures the day the World Series started, was in a coma during part of the series, and was not sufficiently alert after coming out of the coma to be able to watch any of the games. Therefore, I stayed up until 1am to watch all of Game 7 on his behalf. It was the best game of baseball I ever watched.

When I reported to him the next morning that his beloved Cubbies had won, he pumped his fist in the air and said, “Yes.” The front-page article proclaiming the victory was the first thing he was able to read post-coma.

My thanks to the Cubbies for making my dad and his family very happy.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
