Chicago celebrates after Cubs’ first World Series victory in 108 yrs (VIDEO & IMAGES)
The game was played in Cleveland where fans and players erupted into celebration when Mike Montgomery got the final out in the 10th to secure an 8-7 victory.
Outside the team's home stadium in Chicago thousands of fans gathered in the hope of witnessing history. And they weren’t disappointed when the famous Wrigley Field scoreboard lit up with the words “CUBS WIN!”
Parts of the city came to a standstill as fans honked their horns in celebration, some flying the famous “W” flag, used to mark a win for the Cubs.
After a 108-year wait, Cubs fans celebrated the victory in city bars all over Chicago, having a well-deserved drink to honor their team.
Pardon my haggard ass singing, but all my years of being a Cubs fan and getting flack for my "maybe next year" slogan were put to rest tonight. My job was lit up, I felt the spirit of Chicago. I don't care what neighborhood you're from or what team you root for, this is a monumental moment for OUR city. My only wish further than this team winning is that my Grandpa, GG, Aunt Susie and Uncle Jack were here to watch it happen. I've never been so proud to be associated with such an amazing city and legendary team ❤️💙 #ChicagoCubs #FlyTheW #NorthsidePride #ThisWasOurYear
So much joy was brought to so many people tonight, even thousands of miles away in the City of Angels. I love my #ChicagoCubs so much. Thank you for a great night @cubs . You played your hearts out on that field tonight, and it showed. My heart is always with you. #WorldSeriesChamps #108YearsLater #HistoryIsMade
