Famous Cubs Fans On Twitter: 'The Billy Goat Is Dead'

CHICAGO — Let the congratulations begin.

The famous fans of the Chicago Cubs sent praise from all over after the team won its first championship in 108  years.

Hardcore Cubs fan Nick Offerman said he was "openly crying" after the win: 

Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews, who knows a little about making history, said fans should take note of where they were when history was made.

John Cusack, who was at the game, took a photo of the Cubs empty dugout.

Earlier, he tweeted a picture of the World Series trophy.

The trophy, comedian Andy Richter said, could be used to cook hot dogs.

Hillary Clinton, a Chicago-area native who is also hoping to make history next week, flew the W on Twitter, along with the First Lady Michelle Obama. 

The team also got a White House invite from the world's most powerful Sox fan: President Barack Obama.

Singer and Chicago native Liz Phair, who sung "God Bless America" at the White Sox World Series in 2005, said she was praying for catcher David Ross — and holding a ball signed by him — before his huge homerun.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel, not suprisingly, was ecstatic.
