Fly the W(edding): Fan ties knot in Cubs uniform

CHICAGO -- Joe Mendoza wanted to get a Cubs tattoo if his favorite team won the World Series in 2016, but his fiancée nixed that. Instead, she compromised and said he could wear a full Cubs uniform on their wedding day, so he did.

Joe and Amy Mendoza were married in Las Vegas on Dec. 20. While the bride wore an elegant dress, the groom wore a Cubs home uniform adorned with "Cubby Hubby" and No. 16 -- for 2016, of course -- and he had a "W" towel from Game 5 of the World Series tucked in his back pocket. Amy had given him tickets for the game at Wrigley Field.

The couple, who live in Los Angeles, went to eight regular-season games on the road in 2016 -- and the Cubs won all eight. That's a good omen for the newlyweds.
