After a postseason filled with incredible ups and downs, the Cubby faithful can finally take a deep breath, relax and tweet.  

The Northsiders are World Series champions, and, as you can imagine, famous fans are celebrating on Twitter. 

High-profile supporters weren't only engaged after the epic Game 7 win, though. The encouraging posts started rolling in hours before first pitch at Progressive Field. 

History buff Lin-Manuel Miranda, who created the acclaimed Broadway musical "Hamilton," kicked off the festivities by giving the Cubs an 18th century pep talk. 

History must have liked what it saw because Dexter Fowler became the first player ever to lead off a World Series Game 7 with a home run. Some fellow Chicago athletes were pretty pumped about Fowler's blast, too. 


On the mound, Kyle Hendricks delivered another solid postseason performance, but it was his calm demeanor that most impressed comedian Jim Gaffigan. 

Grandpa Ross added to the fun with a solo shot to center, sparking another flurry of celebrity tweets. 

As fans know, though, this is the Cubs. Nothing is ever easy. Aroldis Chapman gave up a two-run dinger to Rajai Davis in the bottom of the eighth, and the Twitter mood turned somber.

John Francis Daly, who directed "Vacation," took the high road by looking at the Game 7 drama as a future project. 


Insanity followed. The game went into extra innings and a short rain delay paused the action. When the 10th inning resumed, Ben Zobrist and Miguel Montero each added RBIs to put the Cubs in front, 8-6.

Rookie Carl Edwards Jr. gave up one run in the bottom half, but Mike Montgomery shut the door to seal the Cubs' first championship in 108 years. Athletes and Celebrities were free to Fly the World Series W!

Lance Briggs threw some hilarious shade at Cleveland. 


The Blackhawks, who are used to hoisting trophies, congratulated the Northsiders.

Fresh off a Monday night win, the Bears gave some love to the Cubs.


Even the White Sox and their most popular fan put aside their crosstown rivalry to show respect for a phenomenal year. 

The crazy game is best summed up by Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who was caught reacting to the highs and lows. 

Tweet of the night goes to notorious Cubs troll, Frank Kaminsky. The big man let bygones be bygones and (finally) gave the Northsiders credit.
