GOOD NEWS Cubs Win! A Man's 1993 Yearbook, an Eerie Tweet & Kris Bryant's Smile Are Going Viral
By now you probably know that the Chicago Cubs are World Series champions, breaking the franchise's 108-year curse.
As you can imagine, there are lots of fun side stories on social media this morning.
For example, this guy's 1993 high school yearbook quote was eerily prescient...
*mom walks into my room* -look at my yearbook from '93 #...
This dude called the cubs winning the series in 2016 for his senior quote. pic.twitter.com/Dq4kWFIziy

"Chicago Cubs. 2016 World Series Champions. You heard it here first," Michael Lee wrote in the Mission Viejo, California High School yearbook.
Meantime, this tweet - from 2014! - started to freak everyone out on Twitter last night as the classic Game 7 was tied heading into a rain delay.
2016 World Series.
Cubs vs Indians
And then the world will end with the score tied in game seven in extra innings #apocalypse

The rain delay was short and near 1am ET, third baseman Kris Bryant fielded a grounder for the historic final out.
The 24-year-old could not contain his excitement. Many noticed that he was literally smiling as he made the play.

But all in all everyone seems pretty happy for the Cubbies and even their cross-town rivals offered their congrats...

President Obama, a longtime ChiSox fan, tweeted at 2am ET an invitation to the White House...
It happened: @Cubs win World Series. That's change even this South Sider can believe in. Want to come to the White House before I leave?
