THE CUBS WON THE WORLD SERIES!!

Until November 2, 2016, the Cubs had suffered from the longest World Series drought of any Major League team in history – 108 years. But more than a month before the Cubs even clinched their spot in the 2016 Fall Classic, Harry Caray’s CEO and President, Grant DePorter, predicted that the Cubs would win the World Series, all because of the Magic Number 108.

DePorter, who is co-author of the 2008 book “Hoodoo: Unraveling the 100 Year Mystery of the Chicago Cubs,” has discovered a remarkable list of “108” appearances that all point to the Cubs’ 108-year-long World Series drought ending in 2016. The Cubs curse and superstition expert uncovered new connections between observations made in “Hoodoo” all relating back to the number 108.

“Everywhere you look, it’s 108. You just can’t get away from it,” DePorter has said to the countless fans who have marveled at this discovery. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE FULL LIST

OUR BELOVED CHAIRMAN, ERNIE BANKS IS SMILING FROM ABOVE




ORIGINAL LETTER FROM ERNIE
TO WEST SIDE ROOTERS MEMBERS


Spring 2008

Dear Cub Fans,

I was lucky enough to play every day of my baseball career for the best fans in the world - Cub fans. It’s my love of the game, the Cubs and the fans that led me to accept the position of Chairman of the West Side Rooters Social Club. The West Side Rooters, founded in 1908, was the first official fan club of the Chicago Cubs. Members took their job seriously - they engaged in “scientific rooting” and other activities all geared toward helping the Cubs win a World Series. And win they did. However, following the 1908 World Series win, the Club was disbanded.

Now, 100 years later, we’ve brought it back and we want loyal Cub fans everywhere to be a part of it. That’s why it’s absolutely free to join. So join me, Ryne Sandberg, Dutchie Caray and Grant DePorter and fans around the world as we work together to bring back the spirit of the West Side Rooters Social Club. And remember, Let’s play two!

Ernie Signature
