The 2016 Chicago Cubs were the best thing that happened to the Cubs in a long time. For 108 years fans waited for a moment in which the Cubs would win a world series, and all of that waiting paid off.
The Last Dance documentary was something that everyone around the sporting world loved to watch. Personally, I found it fun and exciting to watch Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen tear up the NBA and help bring six championships to Chicago. It made me think of some of the other teams in Chicago that have won championships recently, and my mind instantly went to the Chicago Cubs.
With a 103-58 record in 2016 the Cubs captured first in the National League Central and were favorites to win it all that fall. I remember watching at home with skepticism that the Cubs were not going to be able to pull it off, and that they would fall yet again in the playoffs.
