Guys, the Chicago Cubs 100+ year losing streak could come to end this week.

In the World Series for the first time since 1945, the hard-luck team needs to win two more games against the Cleveland Indians to clench the title.

Chicago is a frenzy of nervous excitement as everyone tries to do their part to break the curse — this includes the otters of the city’s renowned Shedd Aquarium.

The slippery mammals took a break from frolicking to show their support for the home team, and to put those positive otter vibes out into the atmosphere.

The tasty team spirit treat was put together by Shedd’s Animal Response Team, a group of over 100 animal experts that provide the aquarium’s animals with around-the-clock care.
