Chicago and the Cubs are everyone’s sweethearts – and for good reason.

Last World Series appearance in 1945; last World Series win in 1908.

It’s been a long time.

But on the other side of the match up it’s a pretty good story too.

The last time the Cleveland Indians won a World Series was in 1948 – they have only appeared there twice since. And, there have been many years of suffering in between.

Manager Terry Francona is a great story as well.

So, root if you please for the Cubs. It is indeed, a feel good story.

No dynasties on either side of this match up.

But so too is it in Cleveland. We recall those who have suffered over all these years – in Chicago and in Cleveland – whether we can see them in person or only remember them now.
