Chicago Cubs: A magical ride

Through heartbreak and frustration buds a new hope. The 2016 season lives on as one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, season in Cubs history. You can’t write the narrative any better for what transpired that year.

At Wrigley for Game 6 of the NLCS, the Cubs faced the great Clayton Kershaw with a chance to move on to the World Series. Climbing back from a two games to one deficit in the only way the Cubs knew how to do throughout the year, that chilly October night remains one of the games great ‘all-time’ moments.

After springing out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first, the feeling began to form that this was that moment. A Willson Contreras line-drive shot over the left-field bleachers made it 4-0. A big home run by the captain Anthony Rizzo one inning later made it 5-0. It was happening.

Watching that game, I reminisced about 2003 all over again. It was only natural. The Cubs had led 3-0 heading to the eighth inning of that game. This time, however, that narrative was written differently.

The Coup de Grâce to close it out was the Yasiel Puig double play. From then on it was a party in Wrigleyville as 42,000 plus bellowed “Go Cubs Go.” We all know what would happen after that, but clinching the pennant at home versus the Dodgers could not have been any better of a moment in Wrigley Field history.
