It's been a long, long time for the Cubs

The world is a bit of a different place since the last time the Cubs won the World Series, much less made the Fall Classic.

CHICAGO, ILL. - The Cubs' first pennant in 71 years came as a welcomed sight to the city of Chicago and its fans, but just how much has the world changed since their last World Series visit, or their last World Series win?

When the Cubs won the National League pennant back in 1945, there was no such thing as the NBA.

Color television didn't exist.

Along with Barbie dolls, velcro, the microwave, the hula hoop, and even diet soda.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, who the Cubs beat in the NLCS, weren't even in Los Angeles back in 1945 -- they were still the Brooklyn Dodgers. They would not move to the West Coast until 1958.

And even Cubs manager Joe Maddon didn't exist. Yet. Maddon wasn't born until 1954.
