Chicago Cubs  – #3: Game 4 of the 2016 NLDS

Going into the ninth inning down 5-2 as a Cubs fan is usually the point where you’re just watching because there is nothing else on. But 2016 wasn’t a typical year – so instead of being down on ourselves we turned those hats inside out and stayed behind the Cubbies.

The Chicago offense had been shut down by the San Francisco starters in the series – Madison Bumgarner and Matt Moore dominated the team. But against the bullpen it was a different story. After Moore was pulled that night, the Cubs put up four runs against five different relievers. And then Aroldis Chapman came in to close it out, striking out the side and sending the North Siders to the NCLS.

Chicago Cubs – #2: Game 4 of the 2015 NLDS

From Baez hitting a game-tying two-run home run early in the game to Rizzo’s go-ahead homer and Schwarber’s moon shot – this was a game I’ll never forget, a game for the Wrigley Field books.

I was lucky enough to attend this game and is definitely one of the best sports moments in my life. From the crowd chanting “LACKEY” to the pandemonium of the last pitch. The win coming against the rival Cardinals seemed to be the unofficial changing of the guard atop the NL Central.

Chicago Cubs – #1: That magical Game 7

The night 108 years of drought came to an end. Dexter Fowler’s leadoff home run. David Ross’ last at-bat being a homerun. The ‘oh no here we go again’ when Rajai Davis hit the home run. The rain delay? This can’t be true.

Everything just seemed to be lining up to add to the list of the Billy Goat, the Black Cat, Steve Bartman. But the Cubs pulled it off and won the World Series behind a pep talk from a guy who we thought wasn’t worth the money.
