7, C’s! World history for Chicago, Cleveland

It’s been 108 years since the Cubs hoisted the World Series trophy, and 68 years since the Indians were on top of the baseball world. The droughts have spanned generations, captivating millions along the way. One will finally — mercifully — end tonight at Progressive Field with the most exciting event in sports: Game 7, and an epic one at that. Tonight in Cleveland, 176 years of combined anticipation will culminate when Corey Kluber takes the mound opposite Kyle Hendricks. One team will end the night as champions, along the way releasing its own brand of citywide catharsis, lifetimes in the making. The other will have to once again wait all offseason, cursing curses and knowing that erasing an unwanted legacy was just one measly, magnificent win away.
