(WSCR) Brace yourself Cubs, fans.

Before the start of the Cubs-Astros game Wednesday afternoon, Cubs manager Dale Sveum let his mind wander to what it would be like if the North Siders actually won the World Series.

“It’ll be the biggest event in sports history when we win, there is no question about that,” Sveum said. “I was fortunate to be in Boston (as a coach in 2004), and after 86 years, that is as big a championship won in a long, long time. But when we win here it will be the biggest sports event in sports history, really.”

As fans of the club know all too well, it’s been 104 long years since the Cubs last won the World Series. Here’s a quick reality check from 2012: The Cubs are currently 24 1/2 games out of first place in the National League Central.

The road to the top will be long, but Sveum said that’s exactly where the Cubs are heading.

“Yeah, that’s our goal,” Sveum said. “It’s going to happen, and that’s just the way I think. We’re building to that goal and that’s a goal you have every day.”
