After a 108-year World Series drought, the Chicago Cubs can pop the champagne and celebrate their historic Game 7 win over the Cleveland Indians.
Celebrity fans quickly took to social media to share their excitement on behalf of their beloved Cubbies. Longtime die-hard fan Bill Murray's eyes flowed with tears of joy after Chicago beat Cleveland 8-7.
The ratings for the 10-inning game were off the charts for FOX. In fact, it was the most-watched telecast, excluding presidential debates, since Super Bowl 50 last February. FOX announced the dramatic contest brought in more than 40 million views.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton intently watched the game on her iPad, then posted her elation on Twitter following the victory: “They did it! 108 years later and the drought is finally over. Way to make history, @Cubs. #FlyTheW -H”
Many other celebrities, athletes, and politicians shared their enthusiasm and tributes to the World Series champs. Check out their reactions!
