Tasty Grande

Here is the Cubs World Series ring. There are 108 diamonds, rubies and sapphires to signify the 108 years that it took the team to get here. It's the biggest, most expensive ring in MLB history.

Manager Joe Maddon says that while it's beautiful ("tasty grande" in Maddon speak), he'll never wear his, claiming he couldn't even steer his car while wearing such a big piece of hardware.

EVERYONE who worked for the Cubs organization in 2016 -- including the guys who brought out the tarp during the rain delays and tended the ivy -- will get one of these. That's 1,908 rings. And the last time the Cubs won was 1908. Coincidence?
