HOLLAND, Mich. -- Lots of eyes were glued to the TV Wednesday night to see the Cubs win the World Series.
Holland Mayor Nancy DeBoer held a watch party at her house, where generations of fans gathered to watch an epic Game 7.
“My whole life I’ve been waiting for this," said Jim DeBoer. "I’ve been a Cub’s fan since I was 1 year old. And here we are, it's Game 7."
“Been a Cubs fan ever since I knew what baseball was,” said Neil Vanfaasen.
“I’ve been waiting for this for a long time,” said Carl Vanfaasen. "It’s almost been for me a little surreal.”
Given the enormous championship drought between the two teams, a total of 178 years between the two, it only seemed appropriate that the series went to a historic game seven extra inning finish.
