Steve Bartman 'overjoyed' but won't be at Cubs' World Series parade

"It's worth the extra hassle".

"Since I went to high school, and that was nearly a hundred years ago, I've been a Cubs fan", Nilson told WCVB. Chicago Public Schools had a planned day off on Friday, so plenty of children were among the thousands of fans lining the streets.

There will be a championship parade starting at Wrigley Field followed by a rally at Grant Park on Friday.

"At first, I didn't know what to do". Fans jammed the sidewalks outside Wrigley Field taking photos under the famed marquee, which read "WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS". "It seemed like it wasn't happening".

"Chicago! look what the boys got me!" "With the Cubs folklore of being the lovable losers that never get there, it was just a natural joke to say, 'What is the most absurd thing that you could come up with?'"

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel told reporters the city was going to "have a parade in Chicago that will stand the test of time".

Along the parade route and at the rally, a sea of blue-clad fans waved "W" flags and homemade signs that pronounced what they hope will become this once cursed franchise's new moniker: "Loveable Winners".

"I think what this does for the identity of the Cubs fan is maybe they will have to deal with less of that exhausted old trope of the goat, the black cat", said Lin Brehmer, a devoted fan and local radio host.

"It's a historical event".

The judges agreed that there were unreasonable differences in the way housing benefit regulations treated adults and children. The court heard that she needs to sleep in a hospital bed, meaning Mr Carmichael needs to sleep in the spare room.

"This game with all the ups and downs showed him exactly what it is to be a Cubs fan", the 50-year-old Likhite said.

Over 2 million people were packed shoulder-to-shoulder into Grant Park Friday afternoon anticipating the arrival of the Cubs.

Alicia Casanera and Ryan Roberts recently moved back to Chicago from St. Thomas.

"This was torture", said Mike Delmanowski, a lifelong Cubs fan who flew to Chicago from California just to be surrounded by other Cubs fans.

Fans hugged each other - many of them crying - and took pictures of each other and themselves. Gibbs is originally from Toronto, and said his boys like both teams.

The brewer also resuscitated a 1984 Budweiser ad in which the Bud pitchman, and Bud lover, caught a cold one launched into the Wrigley Field bleachers using a net.

"This is for all the people who couldn't be here, as well".

One mom said she had no problem letting her younger kids miss school so they could attend the parade but had been wary about her 16-year-old missing an important physics lesson. That's change even this South Sider can believe in.
