One hundred and eight years after their last championship, the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series. Here’s how Joe Buck called it on Fox:

“Here’s the 0-1. This is going to be a tough play! Bryant! THE CUBS! WIN THE WORLD SERIES! Bryant makes the play! It’s over! And the Cubs have finally won it all, 8-7 in 10!”

And here’s how Pat Hughes called it on 670 WSCR in Chicago:

“A little bouncer, slowly towards Bryant. He will glove it and throw to Rizzo! This game’s over, and the Chicago Cubs win the World Series! The Cubs come pouring out of the dugout, jumping up and down like a bunch of delirious 10-year-olds! The Cubs have done it! The longest drought in the history of American sports is over, and the celebration begins!”

Congratulations to the Cubs and their fans.
