Last night, it didn’t matter if you were a Cubs fan, a Cleveland Indians fan, or a fan of neither – Game 7 was a nerve-wracking, heart-stopping show to remember. Just when

    Here’s what you should know for Game 7 of the World Series

    This is truly a historic World Series. Against all odds, the Chicago Cubs won Game 6 last night in Cleveland to push the series to a winner-take-all Game 7.

    The odd couple: World Series pits Cubs vs. Indians

    The Chicago Cubs are facing off against the Cleveland Indians in the World Series. No, we’re not in the Twilight Zone – that’s an understandable question, though. Both teams seem to be faced with a curse. The Cubs haven’t won the World Series since 1908, while the last time the Indians won was in 1948.

    The game that will define the Chicago Cubs

    It’s the moment of truth for the Chicago Cubs. After being shut out by the Los Angeles Dodgers two games in a row, they trail 2-1 in the National League Championship Series. They have to win tonight’s game to prove they’re as good as they think they are. Why? ESPN broke it down for us:

    Curse or no, the Chicago Cubs are movin’ on up

    It’s been 108 years since the Chicago Cubs went all the way – thanks to the curse of the billy goat, many say. Others believe the curse is hocus-pocus. Curse or no, the Cubs have had a century of rotten luck. But Tuesday they beat the San Francisco Giants 6-5 to win the National League
