A couple months back something happened that has not happened in one hundred and eight years #CubsWinWorldSeries. The Chicago Cubs had the longest world series drought in major league history followed by the Chicago White Sox and then the Boston Red Sox. The loyal Chicago Cubs fans have been waiting a long time for their team to be world champions again. However, the way they did it wasn’t how everyone expected. They had the best record in baseball but fell behind 3-1 in the series to the hot Cleveland Indians. The game ended up going into extra innings and the Cubs pulled through to win 8-7 in ten innings. This hashtag began to evolve because of mainly two reasons the Cubs last won the world series in 1908, and they overcame a 3-1 deficit. To finally break the curse in such a way social media exploded with tweets. The Cubs were the talk of sports and social media for weeks. No one could have imagined that they would play with such poise to put Chicago back on top of the baseball world.
