These ghosts from the 1908 Cubs team are back to help the team win another World Series
As Halloween approaches and the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead grows thinner, some former Cubs players managed to cross over to our plane of existence to share a message: The Cubs need to win a World Series to let them rest.
Before the Cubs' 7-2 loss in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday night, the spirits of Frank Chance, Johnny Evers and Orval Overall (side note: amazing name) emerged with this pressing message:
"We were really roused from our eternal slumber
Most of a century, six feet under.
Had a peerless leader by the name Frank Chance
Knows to take advantage of the circumstance.
He visited our graveyards, one by one --
Had a starting lineup by the time that he was done
Said 'Get up out your graves, gotta leave this place,
We're gonna win the Cubs another pennant race.'
When the zombies of 1908 rest in peace
Decades of frustration will finally cease.
We're here to help the Cubs, bring the title back
We're the last World Champs -- two times to be exact."
Will the Cubs be able to erase the three games to one deficit they face and allow these ancient spirits to return to their tombs in peace? Or will the Indians exorcise their own demons and force these baseball ghosts to wander the Earth, hoping they can one day bring a World Series back to the North Side? Tune in to FOX for 7:30 p.m. ET air time l 8 p.m. game time for Sunday's Game 5 to find out.
