The giant annoyance of this whole Cubs thing is that everyone is ignoring the fact that the Cubs were (are) the best team in baseball this year, and probably will be for the following decade.  They were universally (almost) chosen to win the World Series this year, so this win is the definition of the most anti-climactic ending to a season possible.

The Cubs were by no means the saddest team in baseball, and haven't been for quite some time.  They were in the playoffs last year, they'd won the division three times in the past twenty years (or less?). 

In the same way, the Indians were no sadder -- they got to lose the World Series in 1997.  At least they were an underdog rife with injuries and sadness.

I'm not a fan of either team, specifically, so no dog in this fight.  I'm happy for Bill Murray, though.
Just be happy for all the cubs fans who finally get to see a World Series

I am.  I just think it's sad that everyone acts like there aren't fans of other teams that are in the same (relative) position.  A lifetime is less than 108 years -- there are plenty of fans alive that have never seen a Pirates World Series, or a Mariners World Series.

or a Mariners World Series.

And never, ever will... At least not with Ken Griffey Jr., which was all that I ever really wanted.

108 is a meaningless number -- I doubt there are any living Cubs fans who saw the last World Series win.  All that matters is what you said: "in their lifetime."

Or Ichiro.  But I agree, Junior was awesome.
