cubs win! cubs win! cubs win!

congratulations to the 2016 world series champion chicago cubs!

reflect on that for a moment, especially if are or know a die-hard cubs fan. something that many never thought would happen - not just in their lifetime, but never - has in fact become reality. the cubs have won the world series. unbelievable in many ways, surreal in other ways.

on a personal level, this was a fantastic moment for me to think about my dad who dreamed of this day but wasn't able to see this first hand. he would have loved this day, and he would have loved to participate in the celebration. budweiser in hand, of course!

that said, it was hard to not think about harry caray, the long-time cubs announcer who would have been over-the-top with his celebration of the cubs win. so, i found it especially touching to see and hear a "last call" video to bring harry back into our hearts and help us remember all those that have longed to see this day but were not able to celebrate with us in person.

cubs win! cubs win! cubs win!
