Cleveland Indians Fans Are Not Reacting Well To World Series Loss

Bartman became a pariah in Chicago after the Cubs went on to lose the game and the series to the Marlins.

"That's one of the best games anyone will ever see", Bryant said.

Jubilant fans poured into the streets, jumping, crying and singing the fan anthem "Go Cubs Go".

It was the largest audience for a Major League Baseball game since Game 7 of the 1991 World Series when the Minnesota Twins became world champions with a walk-off win against the Atlanta Braves. The celebration comes two days after the Cubs' dramatic 8-7, extra-inning Game 7 victory in Cleveland. Players raced around the field and celebrated in the locker room.

When the epic, drama-drenched Game 7 was briefly delayed by rain, Indians players returned to their clubhouse, where chairs had been removed and plastic sheets hung in anticipation for a party waiting to pop since 1948.

A final text from my friend Pete summed it up nicely for Cub fans everywhere: "Die Happy". So, to be a part of this is definitely - it's a pleasure.

"I was a little anxious during my speech because the Cubs were playing in the world series", she said. "But mostly, I get to spend that time with my child. They're cool guys. I like these guys".

JERRY POE: Tell me about that.

WOMAN: They deserve it. "Let's be honest, for a while there we forgot the "not" in, 'Try not to suck'".

Beginning at 6:30 AM CT, CSN's "Celebration of the Century" coverage gets underway with a 2 ½-hour replay of Wednesday night's epic post-game edition of Cubs Postseason Live presented by BlueCross BlueShield of IL reliving the historic locker room, on-field, and city-wide celebrations once again in their entirety. By the fifth inning, they were up 5-1. "It doesn't matter how", Cubs pitcher Jon Lester said. And in the eighth inning, this happened. However, the Cubs rallied following a rain delay and received critical run-scoring hits from Zobrist and Montero in the 10th.

Suddenly, the so-called curses of past Cub lore were gone, an idea that had crept back into some players during the game. "I think it's bringing the city together". But curses and superstitions are not. But the underdog Indians never gave up.

It's going to hurt. They tried until there was nothing left.

Some perspective on this moment, from a longtime sportswriter.

We made it to New Orleans, complete with a change in depots in Chicago.

Where did you watch the game last night? We had a great time. As fans, we love the idea of a long-awaited redemption. You thought, oh, no, it's happening again. We're going to have another tragedy.

HARI SREENIVASAN: We don't do sports much on the "NewsHour".

There have been 632 homicides in the city so far this year, compared with 492 in 2015, according to the Chicago Tribune. We are in a time of trouble and turmoil here in Chicago. The school system is in financial trouble.

Then, the Cubs faithful erupt as Caray screams: "Cubs win!"

HARI SREENIVASAN: Now, put this in perspective. "The rest of you, stay with us!" His dad, 51-year-old private equity investor Dean Anderson, says the new generation of Cubs fans will be expecting more Cubs championships.

It is such a wonderful experience to go to Wrigley Field. Just to be there on a nice evening or on a sunny afternoon is an experience all unto itself. "Cubs fans young and old come". Between 1945 and 1984 the Cubs never even played in the post-season. He promised not to drink it until the Cubs won a championship. The most recent World Series Game 7, between San Francisco and Kansas City in 2014, reached 25.4 million viewers.

Finally, 32 years later, he was able to open the beer and drink it. They began the three-game winning streak.

If you are a baseball fan, your cup runneth over. They have a joy in what they do.

"Last night was very special on lots of fronts", she said.

Earlier Friday, motor boats moved up and down the Chicago River, dying it a shade of bright blue to match the team's color. I remember there was a total eclipse of the moon the night the Sox completed their sweep of the Cardinals, which seemed totally appropriate, even necessary. There is nothing they can do.

Roan Mountain's Wes Holtsclaw, who now lives in Chicago, was in the belly of the beast during the Cubs' historic win. The Cubs returned to a hero's welcome in the wee hours, with the first baseman Anthony Rizzo cheered at Wrigley Field as he held the World Series trophy aloft. Our mother was already in Louisiana with two of my siblings, and for some reason, the folks decided it would be a good idea for my brother and me to take the train down just the two of us.

The angst and anxiety of the droughts added to the natural drama of a winner-take-all showdown, with neither team having ever taken a seventh game before. And he expects that to be the biggest area of improvement.

The streets overflowed with fans wanting to share this once in a lifetime moment with each other.
