The Cubs finally did it. After 71 long, aggravating years, the Chicago Cubs are headed back to the World Series after defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-0, on Saturday night in Game 6 of the NLCS.
After the victory, Cubs fans poured into the streets surrounding Wrigley Field to celebrate and the ones inside the stadium refused to leave as they cheered, cried, and jumped for joy in exultation.
Among the Cubs faithful are celebrities that hail from Chicago. Some of these famous fans you already know like actors Bill Murray and John Cusak. Singer Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam is a huge Cubs' fan, as are comedians Jim Belushi, Bob Newhart and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss.
Athletes from the White Sox, Blackhawks and even Scottie Pippen were all rooting on the Cubs, and famous sports writer and host of ESPN's PTI, Michael Wilbon, is perhaps the biggest fan of them all.
