    2016 in sports:
    • Leicester City beats the 5000-1 odds and the soccer team wins the British Premiere League Championship.
    • The Cleveland Cavaliers become the only team in NBA history to come back from 3-1 down to win the NBA Championship and of course bring the city of Cleveland their first title in 52 years.
    • The Chicago Cubs win their first World Series title in over 100 years.
    This is a crazy year in sports.
    I think this is THE year for our Cubbies!!!

    Can this be the year Washington State wins a Rose Bowl? We've gone a century too...

    I don't know, with all these crazy happenings in sports so far this year, something tells me the Cubs have this one finally.

    You can add D Johnson winning the US Open to your list. Amazing considering his epic fails in previous events.

    baseball is an odd sport
    it's got a funny way of going bad right at the end when everything went right right from the start

    but they sure have been good so far

    Very true...That was a great win for him.
    There were some big time collapses from others in that tourney.
    Looked like one of the tougher courses they've played in awhile.
    The greens were so damned fast.

    I'm sympathetic to Cubs fans optimism/despair, and would like to seem them get off the schneide, but a small part of me believes we need this kind of schadenfreude in sports to remind fans of other teams that our own brand of optimism/despair is not unreasonable.

    To me, this was a bigger win than the US Open
