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.

Because the Chicago Cubs won the World Series.
Cubs fans seemed like they were still in shock.
Obama welcomed the Cubs with: "They said this day would never come."
The team presented Obama with his very own #44 Cubs jersey.
