The World Series champions Chicago Cubs visited the White House to celebrate


The Chicago Cubs, World Series champions after a 108-year drought, visited the White House on Monday. 

President Obama invited the Cubs to visit before he left office -- a noble gesture since he's a Chicago White Sox fan. The visit was difficult to pull off in time, but the team made it happen, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The Cubs won their first World Series title since 1908 by defeating the Cleveland Indians.
