The first two times the Cubs won the World Series there was no such thing as a World Series MVP Award, which means when Ben Zobrist won the award this past October, he became the first man to ever win it as a member of the Cubs. As the only World Series MVP in Cubs history, Zobrist will forever be welcome anywhere in Chicago.
On Monday night, Chicagoans welcomed him at a Chicago Bulls game:

Zobrist was at the game with his wife, Julianna, and even ended up with a personalized jersey:

Apparently, Zobrist brought his winning ways with him as the Bulls went on to convincingly defeat the Detroit Pistons, 113-82.
