‘At Last’

Roger Angell, who is 96 years old but 12 years too young to have seen the Cubs win before:

Good game, great game, and worth the wait. The Chicago Cubs, who had trailed in this World Series by three games to one and in the record books by a hundred and eight seasons to none, beat the Indians last night, 8–7, in ten innings, and deserve all praise, however outlandish.

Or not so outlandish, if we look back at the game one more time.
