And win they did. They got down early in the series, made a comeback, tied up the series, played strong in Cleveland and brought home the trophy and the glory.
108 years. 108. That is a crazy amount of time to wait.
But they did it. And I watched every single game.
2 in Memphis, 3 in Chicago, and the final 2 in Memphis.
The 3 in Chicago was a spur of the moment decision. Sunday we were doing our long run and I joked that we should go to Chicago. Over brunch we had three plane tickets purchased and were headed to Chicago.
That entire weekend was a blur. A blur of laughs, beers, pizza, heartbreak, high-fives, and wandering.
108 years. They waited long enough. A century and almost a decade.
Harry Caray is definitely smiling down with his green apples.
