it's about time, what a great series.

After 108 years the Cubies finally won the World Series .......

(  is this a sign of changing times ? ).

Great series fun to watch! I was rooting for the Cubs, but it really didn't matter who won.

My son, who lives in Boston, was routing for the Indians with Tony Francona (former Sox Manager).  We have lived the past ten years in St. Petersburg and were routing for the Cubs with Joe Madden (former Rays Manager).  Made for some interesting back and forth within the family.

Either way we really had no skin in the game.  It certainly was a nail-biter!  Great fun to watch.

One of the most gut wrenching 7th game of the World Series examples I have ever seen! And I am an Angles fan!  Seriously though, great show!

Watched the game with my Daughter...avid Cubbies Fan. She was in NC; I am in Texas. We burnt up the Text-O-Sphere shouting at ump, yelling for good plays, moaning for bad ones.

That was some game, certainly no lack of drama. ;D Hats off to the Cubs, they got their act together when they needed it most after game 4.

I am a Cardinals fan (with a good-natured "arch enemy" style rivalry with the Cubs) so I became an Indians fan for this Series, but...

One of the most gut wrenching 7th game of the World Series examples I have ever seen! And I am an Angles fan!  Seriously though, great show!

...I cannot disagree with this in the slightest.  What an exciting game, and even I'll admit that the Cubs won it fair and square.  ;)

I'll miss all the years of referencing 1908 though.  Ironically enough, the second-place Indians now take over the team record for the longest span since winning a World Series title (1948).

I've never watched a better game!!!  7th game in the Series, extra innings, and a rain delay with game tied!!!!  That one will make a Cubs and Indian Fan fan out of anyone. :)

I'm exhausted from game 7.
One of the best ball games ever.
Congrats to the Cubs!
And huge respect for the Indians, especially Coach Francona. His post game interview was very respectful and professional - a first class guy.

Not to mention the Cubs won it after coming back from a 3-1 disadvantage after Game 4.  I'm not a baseball statistician, but I'm sure the odds of winning 3 subsequent games to take the Series (in the final Game 7), while on the road for the last 2 games, are pretty slim.  But they did it.  And again this is coming from a professed non-Cubs fan!

Very rare indeed. Only 6 teams have won after being down 3 to 1 and only 4 of those did it with games 6 &7 on the road.

Sheryl was born in Chicago and a life-long fan. Bobby is a Yankees fan, but when they didn't make the post season he rooted for the Cubs too. Very exciting game. The best we have ever seen.

People are already predicting a repeat next year, just like they did in 1907 & 1908.

Now onto basketball. Orlando Magic won their 2nd game of season tonight. They are off to a very slow start.

Same here but while I have several Cub fan friends some of those on the internet are only young trolls who love to spread hate and discontent.  It used to be a friendly rivalry (and still is when face to face) but those who spread the internet vermin have turned it into something else.  So all I can say is GO CARDS.      lol

I'll still take Game 6, 2011 World Series, Cardinals vs Rangers as the best World Series game ever.  I am 77 years old and have seen my share but even as a Cardinals fan I don't ever recall more suspense than that one.

Although I don't remember the specifics, I do remember that game and I was actually camping that weekend!  My cousin had a big screen projector outside of his RV with the outdoor speakers on, we were in a semi-private loop of the campground watching the game around the campfire, whooping and hollering at some of the awesome plays and turnarounds.  Good times.  I suppose that's how Cubs fans felt this year.  ;)

Congratulations to all of Chicago,  a class act.. 

Eh... living somewhat close to Chicago and having been there dozens of times in my lifetime, I'll stop way short of calling the city a "class act" for a variety of reasons.  It's one of those places that's sometimes nice to visit and look at from the outside, but I would NEVER want to live there.  Traffic is horrible and the number of safe places to be in Chicago is quickly diminishing.

I also know Chicago as well as many other large cities in America and Canada,

What I meant was,     it was nice to see people behave with class,  especially in a large city sports victory celebration.

it's Chicago and I guess it's sad that I almost half expected riots and looting.

Did not watch the game but there was a lovely grapic (Pre-game) on Facebook.

The Devil and one of his minions huddled in blankets, Icecicles hanging down around them and the caption
The Cubs and the Indians are in the Superbowl.

If traffic is bad then do like I did; take the EL. The city has more safe neighborhoods than it used to, thanks to gentrification. Chicago has it's problems but it's still a great city, if you like cities. The main thing rural Illinois has over Chicago is pork tenderloin sandwiches, Gondola sandwiches from Peoria are good too. And the boilermakers out of Local 63, Peoria are as good as any in the country.

I'll tell who dislikes the Cubs more than Cardinals fans: White Sox fans. It's a Chicago thing.

While I used to be a DIE HARD Cubs fan, have got away from watching baseball much anymore. I did watch this fall when my son told me they were doing good. I never thought I'd ever see them win. I have to admit I was hooping and hollering this year. I'm very happy to be able to see them win.

Scotty, I've always rooted for the Cardinals EXCEPT when they are playing the cubs. I used to bet on the series between the Cards and Cubs, WON lots of beer on those bets.
