The photo is going viral, and was featured on the “Today” and in USA Today on Friday morning.

The Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians, 8-7, on Wednesday night in 10 innings to win the World Series in seven games.

The win capped a rally from a three-games-to-one deficit and secured the Cubs their first championship in 108 years, the longest drought in North American professional sports history.

Thousands of fans turned out Friday for a victory parade and rally in Chicago.
