The Cubs finally did it. Following 108 years of onlooking, they can finally put this chatter to rest.
Did you know that the last time the Cubs won it all Thursday, October 15th, 1908;
*Ladies couldn’t vote
*It was only 53 years past the American Civil War
*George Burns was 12 and hadn’t taken to cigars yet
*Jimmy Stewart was born
*Betty Davis was 6 months old (same with her eyes)
*The Montreal Wanderers beat the Ottawa Victorias to win the Stanley Cup
*The first American stamp was issued. They cost 2 cents each
*Newfoundland wasn’t part of Canada
*The Royal Mint opened in Ottawa
*The 46th Star was added to the US Flag…for Oklahoma
*The 4th (Modern) Olympic Games opens in London
*The first Model T Ford was introduced.
So, yeah, it’s been like a long, long time.
