They certainly didn’t make things easy on themselves.

After blowing a two-run lead in the eighth inning, the Chicago Cubs scored two runs in the top of the 10th to give themselves an 8-6 lead over the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the World Series.  And after giving one run back in the bottom-half of the 10th, with the tying run on first, Kris Bryant scooped up a Michael Martinez ground ball and threw it safely to first base to end the madness and give the Cubs their first World Series since 1908.

It’s been a long time coming, but the curse is finally over.  Cubs fans can celebrate for the first time in 108 years.

As for Twitter, it’s going nuts.  No surprise there:
