Could This Be The Year? For the love of everything Harry Caray, this might be the year the Cubs finally win the World Series. Cubs’ fans have been waiting for this moment for a long time – since 1908. A little internet research tells me there are probably 350 people walking planet Earth who were alive to see the last Cubs’ championship.
