Remember when 'Hamilton' cast sang 'Go Cubs Go' after World Series win

Remember when 'Hamilton' cast sang 'Go Cubs Go' after World Series win

Broadway hit musical "Hamilton" became available to stream on Disney Plus on Friday, which serves as a fun reminder.

Remember when the Hamilton cast sang "Go Cubs Go" after the North Siders won the 2016 World Series? Like the Cubs finally snapping their 108-year championship drought, it actually happened.

The Cubs won the Fall Classic on Nov. 2, 2016, a dramatic 8-7 affair that went 10 innings and finished after midnight, Nov. 3, in Cleveland. The Hamilton Chicago cast performed the night of Nov. 3, and the Cubs' clincher presented a perfect way to round out the musical's curtain call.

Hamilton star Miguel Cervantes put on a special rendition of the song, fitting for the moment:

"Baseball season's done today/We better get ready for a brand new day/Hey Chicago, what do you say?/We won the World Series yesterday." 

The cast didn't know some of the later lyrics but we'll give them a pass. Check out the awesome performance here:

MLB The Show: White Sox beat Indians on Father's Day with extra-inning heroics

MLB The Show: White Sox beat Indians on Father's Day with extra-inning heroics

NBC Sports Chicago is simulating the 2020 White Sox season via MLB The Show during the postponement of play. The White Sox, stocked with young talent and veteran offseason acquisitions, were expected to take a big step forward in their rebuild this season. Follow along as we play out the first few months of the season.

Result: White Sox def. Indians, 2-1 (F/11)
Record: 44-34, 2nd in AL Central (0.5 GB of Twins)

W: Dane Dunning (4-1)
L: Adam Cimber (2-5)
SV: Alex Colome (15)

Game summary: Leury Garcia hasn’t had the playing time he had in 2019, but he's come up clutch when the White Sox have needed him. Garcia hit a solo home run off Adam Cimber in the 11th inning to give the Sox a 2-1 lead and help sweep the Indians on Father’s Day at Progressive Field. The solo shot was Garcia’s second game-winning home run of the season.

After a Bradley Zimmer homer in the third, the White Sox struggled to score until the seventh, when Tim Anderson hit a towering shot to the left field bleachers to tie the game at 1. Anderson’s 14th home run of the season knocked out Adam Civale, who was rolling through 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

The South Siders were led by a great performance on the mound by Dylan Cease, who went six innings with six strikeouts and only one earned run. Dane Dunning followed him and kept the Tribe at bay all afternoon, going four scoreless frames to pick up his fourth win of the season. Alex Colome picked up his 15th save but it wasn’t easy, as he got in a bases-loaded jam in the 11th before striking out Oscar Mercado.

White Sox lineup:

Edwin Encarnacion: 1-5, 2B (.319 BA)
Eloy Jimenez: 0-5 (.248 BA)

MLB The Show: White Sox offense tees off in dominant win over Indians

NBC Sports Chicago is simulating the 2020 White Sox season via MLB The Show during the postponement of play. The White Sox, stocked with young talent and veteran offseason acquisitions, were expected to take a big step forward in their rebuild this season. Follow along as we play out the first few months of the season.

Result: White Sox def. Indians 10-4
Record: 43-34 this season, second in AL Central (1.5 GB)

W: Dallas Keuchel (4-5)
L: Phil Maton (1-3)

Game summary: It doesn’t matter who their opponent is these days because the White Sox offense is gonna deal a major blow. The Indians are the latest team to experience this.

The bottom of the order led the charge in this one. Nomar Mazara, the No. 9 hitter, hit a solo homer in the second to give the White Sox a 2-0 lead. After the Indians briefly went ahead in the fifth, Luis Robert, the No. 7 hitter, answered right back with a two-run double in the sixth. Mazara returned for second-helpings and crushed a three-run homer to straightaway center in the eighth to give the South Siders a 7-3 lead.

While the bottom of the order did the bulk of the damage, Yasmani Grandal delivered his MVP moment of the day. He put the icing on the cake with a three-run blast of his own in the eighth.

With the win, the White Sox gained a game on the Twins, whose 10-game winning streak came to an end on Saturday.
