CHICAGO — The Cubs and their fans finally got to celebrate clinching the Central Division when the team won Friday.
The team technically nabbed the title on Thursday, when the second-place St. Louis Cardinals lost against the San Francisco Giants, but the Cubs lost their own game at home and Wrigleyville was relatively quiet.
It wasn't until the Cubs' 5-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday that fans and the team got to really freak out and enjoy flying the W.
The Cubs celebrated on the field, then went inside and donned goggles and t-shirts declaring they were "Made For October" as champagne was sprayed around the clubhouse.
Now we can celebrate this and then get ready for the playoffs #Cubs— Cali Style Alex (@Alex_Chatman) September 16, 2016
