While the fan doesn’t actually drink the beer, it’s understandable. It probably smelled like death and likely would have tasted even worse. Coors isn’t even a good beer to begin with, so who knows how it would taste after 32 years of sitting in a refrigerator. It’s still a pretty darn cool tradition and something which had a lot of meaning to him and his family.
As expected, it wasn’t easy for Chicago. Anytime they got a lead in Game 7, the Indians were able to match. Even after the Cubbies grabbed an 8-6 lead in the 10th inning, Cleveland went down swinging, scoring a run in the bottom of the 10th. They even had the winning run at the plate. Chicago let Cleveland score two runs on a wild pitch after grabbing a 5-1 lead. Despite all the efforts from karma to keep them from winning, the Cubs hung on to win their first World Series since 1908. No one’s sure who’s happier – the team or its fans. This fan is happy he doesn’t have to drink a 32-year-old beer.
