As we're heading towards the World Series and the 2010 season, we're going to hear the saying that it's been 102 years since the Cubs won the World Series. Yes it gets old and if you're like me and get Extra Innings, you know every time it's not a Cubs broadcast, we'll hear those words.
However, I'm a 4th generation Cubs fan and no one in my family has ever seen the Cubs win the World Series. My family came to American in 1915 and became Cubs fans shortly thereafter (or so the story goes).
So my question to you guys is, do you have family that were Cubs fans in 1908 and have they told you what they remember of the World Series. Did they go to the games or maybe hear it on the radio.
As sad as it seems, we might be getting to the point in the next few years where nobody can recount a story of their grandparents or great grandparents seeing the Cubs win the World Series.
Please share your stories, if you have one.
