'The 2016 World Series, Two-Disc' Blu-Ray Review

The Chicago Cubs won the 2016 World Series. What makes this such an amazing event is that the last time the Cubs were able to win the World Series was 108 years ago. For long time Cubs fan Vince Vaughn this was a dream come true. This two disc Blu-Ray is narrated by Vaughn and you can simply hear in his voice the pride and joy that he has for this fantastic feat.

The Cubs began this journey when they acquired Coach Joe Maddon from the Tampa Bay Rays. Many fans knew something special was going to take place when Madden took over, but no one had a clue that the drought would come to an end. For many years the Cubs were the joke every spring training that this was going to be the year, but for 108 seasons it never occurred. The acquisition of players like MVP Ben Zobrist, Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Jake Arrieta, Dexter Fowler, Jon Lester and David Ross brought the dream team to Chicago.

The persons who ignited all this joy were Cub's owner Tom Ricketts and the President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein. Between these two men they brought all of these people together and with the final out of the 2016 World Series brought the series trophy back to Chicago. You will see highlights of each and every game of the series between the Cubs and the Cleveland Indians. The Indians fought hard and a seventh game was needed to seal the deal. You will hear from the players themselves as they are interviewed about this tremendous event. You will feel as if you are right there for each play.

Shout Factory and Major League Baseball bring this wonderful event to Blu-Ray on December 6th, 2016. The quality of the Blu-Ray is excellent and the sights and sounds are fantastic. This would make a wonderful Christmas gift or an excellent addition to that personal library. This is history in the making and hopefully for the Cubs sake that it won't be another 108 years for another World Series Championship.
