20 things that have happened since the Cubs won world series

Just in case we need to remember how bad it can be, here are 20
major events that have occurred since the Chicago Cubs last laid claim to a World

Series championship:

1. Radio was invented...Cubs fans got to hear their team lose.
2. TV was invented...Cubs fans got to see their team lose.
3. Baseball added 14 teams...Cubs fans get to see and hear their
team lose to more clubs.
4. George Burns celebrated his 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th,60th,
70th, 80th, 90th and 100th birthdays.
5. Haley's comet passed Earth... TWICE.
6. Harry Caray was born...and died. Incredible, but true.
7. The NBA, NHL and NFL were formed, and Chicago teams won championships in each league.
8. Man landed on the moon...as have several home runs given up by Cubs pitchers.
9. Sixteen US presidents were elected.
10. Eleven amendments were added to the Constitution.
11. Prohibition was created...repealed.
12. The Titanic was built, set sail, sank, was discovered, and
became the subject of major motion pictures, the latter giving Cubs fans hope that something that finishes on the bottom can come out on top.
13. Wrigley Field was built...and becomes the oldest park in the National League.
14. Flag poles were erected on Wrigley Field's roof to hold all of the team's future World Series pennants. Those flag poles have since rusted and been taken down.
15. A combination of 40 Summer and Winter Olympics have been held.
16. Thirteen baseball players have won the Triple Crown; several
thanked Cubs pitchers.
17. Bell-bottoms came in style and went out...and came back in.
18. The Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox, Arizona Diamondbacks and the Florida Marlins have all won the World Series.
19. The Cubs played 14,153 regular-season games, and lost the
majority of them.
20. Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Oklahoma and New Mexico were added to the Union.
