The Chicago Cubs made history on Wednesday night -- or actually, on Thursday morning -- by winning their first World Series since 1908, and ending the longest championship drought in baseball. Naturally, celebrity Cubs fans across the world had quite a bit to say about it.
There were the ones who graced us with memorable pictures.

Then there were the celebrities who drew attention to the amount of time that had passed since the last Cubs championship. One presidential candidate, despite her reputation for stoicism, couldn't contain her joy.
Cubs win! Congrats Chicago - see you in 2124! — Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) November 3, 2016
Our long wait is over. GO CUBS!!! — Joe Mantegna (@JoeMantegna) November 3, 2016
Some celebrities made no secret of the fact that they were openly crying.
Most celebrities were happy to exult in the moment. Some were happy for Chicago, others were happy for their inner children and still others were simply appreciative that they had been lucky enough to watch a great game.
