This is our year, the fans say, as their beloved Cubs open the National League Divisional Series on Friday evening against the Giants, who have won three World Series since 2010. The Cubs are looking to break a championship drought dating back to 1908.

While the experts only give the Chicago Cubs about a one-in-four shot of winning it all, they remain as confident and prepared as they could be.

What could become the greatest sports odyssey Chicago has ever experienced starts tonight. Jon Lester will take the mound for the Cubs, while the Giants counter with Johnny Cueto.
