It took three tries, but the Cubs finally won their first World Series game at Wrigley Field since 1945.
While the team still trails the series, 3-2, famous Cubs fans aren't about to give up hope. That was obvious Sunday night as athletes and celebrities weighed in on social media.
The vibe on the Northside was positive before, during and after Game 5. High-profile supporters Amy Schumer and Jeff Garlin kicked off the festivities by snapping a photo from the stands.
Superfan John Cusack also took in the action from Clark and Addison.

Jeremy Piven, who played the notorious Ari Gold in HBO's Entourage, couldn't make it to Game 5, but checked in with an encouraging tweet.
To fend off elimination, the Cubs' chances rested on starter Jon Lester, who has been nothing short of dominant this postseason. He answered the call again. The ace pitched six innings of two-run ball, earning praise from Nick Offerman, or Ron Swanson, via Twitter.
Other stars stepped up too. Kris Bryant went deep, prompting Lance Briggs to give the All-Star third baseman the MVP crown.https://twitter.com/LanceBriggs/status/792898335283683328
Speaking of MVPs, the Twitter consensus seemed to be that the Cubs' most valuable player of the night was the flame-throwing lefty who threw 42 pitches to shut the door.

What do you do after a World Series win? Fly the W, of course.
The 87-year-old Bob Newhart takes home tonight's tweet of the night for imparting wisdom on the Cubs' fan base.
On to Cleveland.
