The best tweets about Game 7 of the World Series

The Chicago Cubs defied the odds and made history on Wednesday night (er, Thursday morning, if you’re on the East Coast).

Down 3-1 in the best-of-seven World Series, the Cubs rallied with three straight victories, including a nail-biting 8-6 Game 7 win in extra innings to take the national championship. This is the Cubs’ first World Series victory in over 108 years.

The final game of the World Series — which went 10 innings, had a rain delay and saw a Cleveland come back after starting the game down 5-1 — didn’t make Twitter rest easy. In fact, social media users expressed all sorts of emotions, ranging from mild discomfort to heavy anxiety.

Some social media users even compared the election to next Tuesday’s election. the game ended, it was nothing but celebration.

Utah Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, expressed jubilation over making the right call on Wednesday night.

Funny enough, a different Michael Lee actually called the Cubs’ victory years ago, way back in 1993 in his school yearbook.

And the Utah senator wasn’t the only politician who cheered for the Cubbies. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert cheered on Chicago after the team won the series.

Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, an Illinois native, celebrated the World Series win with her own tweet.

So did President Barack Obama.

And Jill Stein.

Of course, not everyone was happy after the game. Cleveland native LeBron James shared a video with his hometown faithful that they shouldn’t be sad over the results.

Commenters also expressed frustration about the rain delay.

All in all, it seemed Twitter was pretty happy about the Cubs’ victory.
