We’ve all had moments where we really wanted a beer, but imagine that moment lasting for 32 years. That’s what happened to a Chicago Cubs fan who, back in 1984, put a beer in the fridge and vowed not to drink it until the Cubs won the World Series. That beer was cracked extremely early this morning, after nerve-racking extra innings and a rain delay, and drinking it tasted sweeter than he ever imagined… metaphorically speaking. In reality, the beer was totally skunk and smelled like shit. But don’t take away his moment.
Twitter user @GraceJohnso posted a video at 1:02am this morning with the following story: “my grandpa put this beer in his fridge 32 years ago and said he would open it when the cubs won the world series. today was that day.” The one-minute clip shows a soft-spoken gray-haired man pulling the pull tab (yes, pull tab!) off a can of Coors.
