They scored plenty of those this season, of course. And for a day, anyway, Chicago also had a "Cub run" in the Virginia sense of the term.
Chicago traditionally dyes the Chicago River green on St. Patrick's Day. But the Cubs' World Series victory (together with the fact that the current mayor is a Cubs fan for a change) means that Chicago's downtown river became a watercourse of a different color for the champs' victory parade.
They dyed it blue. May this, too, become an annual tradition!
