Some fans have been waiting a lifetime for this moment!

Like most of America last night, my face was glued to the television to watch Game 6 of the NLCS.  Clayton Kershaw, one of the best pitchers in the league, had a chance for the second time in this series to give his LA Dodgers a victory and force a Game 7.

a lot has happened since then.  ESPN put together a small list of things that didn't even exist the last time the Cubs made the fall classic:

Also while watching, I couldn't help but see all the raw emotion escape everyone at the ballpark.  I can't imagine what it's been like being a life-long Cubs fan, but I do know I've become one myself this postseason.
