Idea #1

The story I’ve been wanting to write since I’ve been ten years old WILL be written in the month after the Cubs finally win their first world series since 1908. The angle will be how the victory ( or just sports in general) affects the spirits of a city, as well as sports fans all across the nation. Interviews:
