Bob Newhart, one of several locally raised, life-long Chicago Cubs fans who became consistent fixtures of the MLB postseason summed up 108 years of cursed-team pain in five words: "The billy goat is dead!!"

Newhart flew the "W" on Twitter once again after the Cubs beat the Indians in extra innings to win the World Series.

"As I've said, from the beginning," he tweeted, "I'm getting too old for this! #GoCubsGo #FlytheW"
