Weyermuller: Chicago Cubs Win 2016 World Series




By Mark Weyermuller –

During the day of the 2016 World Series' Game 7 between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians, I spent the day in Wrigleyville, while our home team was in Cleveland.

During the day, a new tradition was started by "chalking" on Wrigley Field's outside walls of Waveland & Sheffield Avenues with thousands of messages.

Thousands of people showed up at Wrigley Field to celebrate while the Cubs played in Cleveland. There was a huge police presence, including snow plows to block streets from cars.

After a tense Game 7 that ended 8 to 7 in 10 innings, there is no waiting till next year, the Chicago Cubs are World Champions!

  1. That should make the liberals happy.
    Typical self-centered liberal Cubs fans trashing walls with graffiti, keeping working people up all night with their fireworks over a stupid game played by a bunch of people who wouldn’t douse them out if they were on fire.
    Yes, the liberals are thrilled today.

  2. So you are calling Mark Weyermuller, the reporter of this story, self-proclaimed conservative activist, and Cub fan, a liberal yuppie? Shame on you!!
    There’s a firehouse across Waveland Ave. from Wrigley Field anyway so I don’t think you’d be on fire for very long.
    And aren’t the Ricketts’ family, except for Laura, big-time conservative donors; they even eventually gave $1 million to Trump. And they don’t seem to be too worried about the noise impact on the neighborhood.
    By the way Chase, I was sorry to hear of your firing from Falcon Crest after season 6 following a feud with Mrs. Ronald Reagan No. 1. She’s a tough cookie, heh?!

  3. Actually I think Mark Weyermuller would proclaim himself a libertarian rather than a conservative activist. And if not then I would in fact question his conservatism.
    The Ricketts family are the owners of the team. The fans are the liberal, boys town yuppies and their queen Hillary Clinton who is a famous Cubs fan.
    And Mrs. Ronald Reagan was great on that show. She is missed.
