Remember a few years back when those guys from Chicago FINALLY won the World Series after 108 years… of NOT??? Don’t know about you, but I was rooting for them along with most of the people in the United States, and we were all happy when they won it again after all this time.
But being a true-blue Cubs fan, even through all those 108 years, was really rough on a lot of people. And so many went to their graves without seeing the Cubs take the series.
One of those was Wayne Williams, who died in 1980, long before his beloved Cubbies finally made it to and won the series. He was a diehard Cubs fan, and he and his son, Wayne Jr., made a pact many years ago that if the Cubs got into the series, that they would watch or listen to the games together. It was a deal. And Wayne Jr. never forgot that.
So when the Cubs made it into the series, Wayne Jr. packed up some things, including a big W flag for WIN, and drove from his home in North Carolina back to Indiana. He entered the Greenwood Forest Lawn Cemetery and set up camp right next to his father’s grave. And there, Wayne Jr. tuned in on the Cubs broadcast every night of the series until they won.
It was something very important for him to do, and he knows his dad would have really appreciated it. And when the last play of the series – which went a full and nerve-wracking 7 games – was made, both Waynes were sure to have been enjoying a wonderful piece of heaven.
