Cubs Fans Line the Street as Team Boards Busses for Cleveland (Pics + Video)


It’s highly unlikely that anybody living within a two-mile radius of Chicago’s Wrigley Field got much sleep on Saturday night. And for good reason. The Cubs beat the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS, earning their first trip to the World Series in 71 years, so the streets were flooded with revellers who celebrated late into the night.

After that much partying, you would have thought the streets of Wrigleyville would be a little quiet on Sunday. But no. When the Cubs starting boarding their busses to Cleveland, where the Fall Classic starts on Tuesday, thousands of fans were waiting to cheer for them on the streets around the 102-year-old ballpark that has never housed a champion.

You certainly can’t blame the fans for being excited. You’d have to be at least 75 years old to have any memory of the Cubs even playing in the World Series. With that kind of history, you don’t take anything for granted.

Game 1 of the World Series is Tuesday at 8:08 ET.
