Wrigley Field went insane after the Cubs won the World Series

Big League Stew

So I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Awesome, right? And many, many other people agree. With Game 7 being played at Progressive Field in Cleveland, a ridiculous amount of fans gathered outside of Wrigley Field on Wednesday night to follow the game on their phones. That way they could be there to celebrate their team’s victory, or possibly weep and sob with other fans if the Cubs lost.

As you might expect, things got crazier from there. How much crazier? I’m so glad you asked. The twitter account Chicagoland Scanner kept everyone up-to-date on the legendary insanity that followed the Cubs legendary win.


At least they’re not playing any more games there this year, right?


No, no, no, don’t climb the light poles, that is NOT a good idea!


Okay, uprooting a light pole and carrying it around with LIVE WIRES is NOT a better idea than climbing on one!


Well, that was predictable. (I hope he’s okay.)


Guys, that box truck doesn’t belong to you! And what are you going to do with that roof once you rip it off? You didn’t think that far ahead, did you!?


Haven’t we been over this!?


Well, at least they’re not ripping the roof off it. I have this image in my head of Cubs fans jumping into the actual buckets on the truck and just riding around in buckets, cheering. That’s probably not what happened.


Haven’t you had enough to drink? Let that poor person close their store! It’s 1:20 a.m.!


That’s not good. This has started to take on a distinct “Game of Thrones” battle vibe. But let’s go back to Wrigley Field itself.


Yeah, they’re gonna have to disinfect the mound after that. But hey, they have six whole months to do it.
