Cubs fans celebrating World Series baby boom

Cubs fans celebrating World Series baby boom

As the nine-month anniversary of the Chicago Cubs' World Series championship approaches, a "baby boom" could be starting in the Windy City.

"It's so insane that he's recognized as a Cubs baby and as a World Series baby", Natalie Pelnar said.

The Cubs used their bad catchphrase "That's Cub" in that tweet, so I nearly didn't want to share it with you. "It was just a really special night for us and Chicago".

OK, the catchphrase is good now.

Djokovic to miss rest of the season with right elbow injury
12-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic will not play again in 2017 due to an elbow injury, including next month's US Open. Djokovic's wife, Jelena, is expecting their second child, a development that will occupy his time during his layoff.

It's nearly exactly nine months since the Cubs ended their 108-year title drought on November 2 last year and the Chicago Tribune claims evidence of some amorous celebrations are already being seen by doctors in the city. "And just the right amount of champagne", said Erin and Dave Hettinger. They even have a dog named Maddon.

"Anecdotally, hearing from parents, we know what we were doing back nine months ago", says Dr. Melissa Dennis.

Cubs fans celebrated the big win by pouring into the streets of Chicago, ending 108 years of frustration.

Yesterday, Clark the Cub visited these babies and brought along with him the World Series trophy, World Series ring, Cubs oneies and newborn fan Cub memberships! As a result, it's a very busy time for local hospitals in the Chicago area welcoming new, tiny Cubs fans into the world. She and all the babies born recently at Illinois Masonic Medical Center were decked out in Cubs gear on Wednesday, courtesy of the team, that played a major role in their arrival.
