This is what we wanted all along, right?
Well, we sure got our wish; Game 7.
This riveting World Series with the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians deserves to go the distance, with a heart-stopping, nail-biting, nerve-racking final game of the season between the two teams with the longest combined championship droughts in history at 178 years.
One franchise will revel until next spring. The other will be tortured for another grim winter.
The Cubs made it all possible Tuesday night by routing the Indians, 9-3, trying to become the first World Series team since the 1985 Kansas City Royals to overcome a 3-1 deficit. Tonight’s game will be the 37th winner-take-all game in World Series history. The Cubs’ Kyle Hendricks will face the Indians’ Corey Kluber. Can’t ask for anything better.
No World Series has been won by the Indians since 1948. No World Series has been won by the Cubs since 1908. This is what makes this game one of the most interesting baseball games in a long time. MLB loves it, so does FOX (plenty of viewers). The only better scenario for me would be if the Yankees were in it, but they’re not. To all true baseball fans (Yankee fan or not) and historians, this will be a story book ending to the 2016 Fall Classic and if you are a real fan you’ll be rooting for a great game and a win by either the Cubs or the Indians. Either way, history will be made tonight, and I for one want to see it unfold.
