Cubs Defeat Dodgers to Clinch First Pennant Since 1945!

The friendly confines of Chicago's Wrigley Field, at Clark and Addison on Chicago's north side, saw a historic event in Major League Baseball Saturday night.

For the first time in over 70 years the Chicago Cubs clinched the National League Pennant in a convincing 5-0 win over Los Angeles Dodgers.  Yes, that's over seventy years.  

They now have a shot at breaking another streak.  1908 was the last time Chicago's lovable losers won the World Series. Since the club was founded at the 23rd Street Grounds as the Chicago White Stockings in 1876 they have won only two World Series titles, in 1907 and 1908.  The club settled on the Cubs nickname only in 1903, which kicked off their glory years which ran until 1920.   With this win of the National League Pennant, the curse of the Goat might finally be overcome. 

Certainly better correspondents will help prepare us soon for this year's World Series.

Today let us just congratulate all Cubs fans as they celebrate last night's win!
