The celebration continues in Chicago Thursday after the thrilling Game 7 victory by the Cubs. The 8-7, 10th inning triumph over the Cleveland Indians gave the Cubs their first World Series title since 1908.

It was a tough blow for Indians fans, who haven’t seen their team hoist the trophy since 1948.
