The World Series Did Not Disappoint, And Neither Did The Memes

This year’s World Series was nuts. After taking a commanding 3-1 lead in the series, the Cleveland Indians couldn’t close things out.  They let the Chicago Cubs, who hadn’t won a title since 1908, take the series to game 7, where ANYTHING can happen. And it did.

The Cubs jumped to an early lead, making a few Cleveland fans think twice about their chances at winning the World Series.

As the game went on, Cleveland began chipping away the Chicago’s lead, making the game more and more tense.

Comedian Mike Lawrence made a poignant observation in the middle of all the madness.

Late in the game, the Indians miraculously tied things up, sending Cubs fans into disbelief.

Soon, the game would go into extra innings.

And just when the drama was at its peak, there was a rain delay.

After 17 minutes, the game — and the fingernail biting — resumed.

Despite blowing the lead, Chicago and its fans held out hope that they could take the W.

And the Cubs did it, winning 8-7 in 10 innings.

And Cleveland’s controversial Chief Wahoo logo got a makeover.

Some people chalked up Cleveland’s loss to karma.

Others offered Indians fans some fashion advice.

And Steph Curry, whose Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers in last year’s NBA finals, passed the torch to the Cleveland Indians.

So anyone from Cleveland who ever made a “You blew a 3-1 lead” joke now understood what it was like to be on the other side.

And who can forget Steve Bartman, the Cubs fan who was famously (and unfairly) blamed for ruining Chicago’s shot at the 2003 World Series? His curse was finally lifted.

Bartman could finally go out in public.

And no longer feel the wrath of all those bitter Cubs fans who unfairly took out their frustrations on him.

And not only was Bartman free, but with Kris Bryant’s smiling throw to first…

… the Cubs could finally say that they had broken a 108-year curse.
