Recommended Posts

Mabel Ball—the 108-year-old Chicago Cubs fan who lived for the full length of the team's World Series drought before it was snapped last month—died Tuesday. 

According to the Chicago Tribune's Irv Leavitt, Ball's son Rich confirmed the news. 

"The cruel irony, the almost unbelievable irony, is that the person who waits and waits and waits, after it happens, says, 'I've done what I've got to do, and I'm out of here,'" he said. "It ain't funny, but it's funny."

According to ABC7's Sarah Schulte, Ball was born two months before the Cubs defeated the Detroit Tigers in the 1908 World Series. 

 

Rest and VID here!
