Notes & Transcripts

In 2016, the Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians in heart-stopping fashion in Game 7 of the World Series. The faithful fans in Chicago have not just waited a long time; they’ve waited generations for a victory. The World Series win ended a 71-year National League pennant drought and a 108-year World Series championship drought, both of which are Major League Baseball records. This drought is so well-known that as the Cubs advanced into the World Series, the national media attention was unprecedented. Even fans, athletes, and celebrities from other cities felt strong empathy for the plight of the Chicago Cubs fans. —Jim L. Wilson and Ben Hsieh
