If there was one theme that ran through all the jubilation Chicago Cubs fans were experiencing after the team’s World Series curse ended, it was the bittersweet thought of all the parents, grandparents, friends and other relatives who were no longer here to witness it for themselves.
You know who would really have loved that Game 7 extra-innings win? Harry Caray. The team’s beloved and legendary announcer died in 1998, but the people at Budweiser gave him one last call.

Put on your oversized spectacles and watch.
