The bear emoji got a strong work out last night on Twitter.
The Chicago Cubs finally broke one of the longest droughts in the sports world. And Cubs players and their unwavering fans are still celebrating after the franchise won its first World Series championship since 1908.
The Cubbies defeated the Cleveland Indians, 8-7, in an epic game 7 battle.
The historic victory was wrapped up when Ben Zobrist hit a go-ahead double in the 10th inning.
Musicians and other celebrities had plenty to say about the victory/defeat, depending on which side they were pulling for. Here are some of the best tweets.

It happened: @Cubs win World Series. That's change even this South Sider can believe in. Want to come to the White House before I leave?—
