(CBS) — Cubs pride is sweeping the of Chicago.
CBS 2’s Dorothy Tucker takes us from the South Side to the North Side and shows an outpouring of appreciation for a job well done.
On the streets and sidewalks of Englewood fans celebrate the Cubs’ World Series Championship.
“That’s what this city needs because there’s too much violence,” Arthur Reed says.
Latee Yoatum traveled from the South Side, joining fellow fans outside Wrigley Field in Lake View.
“It was history in the making, so I wanted to be there,” he says.
Cubs pride engulfs the city. At a day care center in Little Village, toddlers were served by caretakers sporting Cubs gear.
And in Chinatown, where English is a second language for many, most know the universal chant: Go Cubs.
At a medical center in Archer Heights, workers replaced scrubs with Cubs. And in Sheridan Park, the team’s personal symbol, the one that stands for “win,” has a broader meaning now.
“It means ‘we,’” Cubs fan David Kropp says. “Meaning, we, the city of Chicago. We’ve had a lot of problems lately. We can finally set them aside and think about this as a happy moment and celebrate together. So, the W means ‘We.’”
