Congratulations to the Chicago Cubs! One-hundred-and eight years, nor a 17 minute rain delay, nor extra innings, or even Steve Bartman would prevent the Cubs from ending The Curse Thursday morning. Game 7 was as wild as it wanted to be. We saw Cubs old-man catcher Steve Ross go from goat to GOAT in a single inning. Genius Cubs manager Joe Maddon make another questionable pitching change which led to an Indians rally. Chicago closer Alrodis Chapman give up two tying runs to the Indians, which sent the game to extra innings. And the Indians come back within one run of extending the ballgame in the bottom of the tenth. But in the end, another Theo Epstein baseball club find a way to repeat the imaginable. Fight its way back from a 3-1 deficit to win it all — 8-7.
This game was a fun watch for fans everywhere. Easily an instant classic that will not be forgotten in this lifetime. And way too good not to meme. Here are some of the best!
Of course, Crying Jordan made an appearance.

And of course long-proclaimed New York Yankees fan and Akron “kid” LeBron James got roasted for his fake Indians fandom.
