The Cubs are four wins away from making it to the World Series. Something I will never thought I would say.
Last night, the Cubs did the impossible and eliminated the San Francisco Giants. Since it was an even year, everyone expected the Giants to eliminate the Cubs and eventually win the World Series.
There was no talk of the curse in the Cubs dugout as manager Joe Maddon brilliantly led his team to its second straight National League Championship appearance.
The question on every Cubs fans mind is: When will the curse strike?
The Cubs were swept by the Mets last October and were dominated in every offensive category. They became the first losing team to have never led in a game in the series. It was the work of the billy goat.
Fast forward to a year and the Cubs have a better offense and better pitching.
This will be the end of the curse. These Cubs are for real.
