Man Listens To Cubs Win At Dad’s Grave Site. Drives 600 Miles To Keep Decades Old Promise.

Wayne Williams never forgot the promise he made to his father many years ago. Wayne’s father died in 1980, but the father and son had always hoped for a day when the Chicago Cubs would win the world series. Williams and his father made a pact: the next time the Cubs made it to the world series, they would listen to the game together.

And so, when the Cubs made it to the tiebreaking game 7 of the series this year, 58-year-old Williams hopped in his car and drove to his late father’s gravestone to fulfil his promise.
