Remember when Albert Einstein published his "Theory of Light"? Remember the Ottoman Empire? Remember when Taft secured his presidency? No, neither do I, but these were the hot topics the last time the #ChicagoCubs won the #WorldSeries. The Cubbies have been the most rugged underdogs in sport's history for over a century.
