7:01 am
in just five days. and, did we mention? cubs win! an epic championship worth repeating. al was there for the game, and has made his way to chicago overnight to join the history making celebration "today," thursday, november 3rd, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everybody, welcome to "today" on a great thursday morning. matt, where were you 108 years ago? >> can i just say, oh, baby. >> i know, right? >> what a game! i said to my son, this is a game you'll tell your kids about. game seven of this world series. >> not only do we have a game seven, we get a great game seven with all of this drama. even an act of god, a rain delay. we had everything! >> i know. al, of course, was there last night. he's made his way to chicago.
7:02 am
got some screaming fans behind him. he's probably a little bit disappointed this morning. >> not in that crowd. i think everybody's just excited because it is a great day for baseball and for sports. let's start with nbc's ron mott. he also has made his way to chicago. hi, ron, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i've got just one question for you -- how about them cubs! it was a memorable game. there were palpitations all across the country so not for a weak heart. but at the end of the day, the cubs' heart was just a beat or two stronger than the indians. >> reporter: a finish not even hollywood could muster. >> cubs win the world series! they finally won it all! >> reporter: the unbelievable win coming after a nile-baiter where the cubs first stormed to a four-run lead. a thrilling home run tying it
7:03 am
for the indians in the eighth. a rain delay. and extra innings in this game for the ages. then -- the clincher. ben zobrist in the tenth. and with that, the chicago cubs broke the curse and the drought. world series champions again for the first time since 1908. >> this is dream come true. >> reporter: the cheers from all around the windy city and outside wrigley field overnight, just as sweet as the bubbly bath players soaked in after beating the indians in a dramatic game seven. >> number one, baby. >> chicago is just exploding with happiness. >> reporter: anchored by pitcher kyle hendricks, steady as he was stoic, the cubs struck quickly. leadoff hitting dexter fowler lead e with a home run. the cubs adding a pair of
7:04 am
dingers in the fourth and sixth innings to hang on for the victory despite the spirited charge by the indians. >> i believe this team is into making history, not repeating histories. >> reporter: bye-bye to the billy goat and his curse. so long, steve bartman, no harm, no foul, all is forgiven now that history's been rewritten. >> this is why i came here. to break the code or black cat or god knows what. >> reporter: the mood somber, but proud, in cleveland. >> we'll be back next year. >> reporter: the late legendary cubs broadcaster harry caray once famously said, some day the cubs are going to be in the world series. his beloved cubbies doing more than just showing up. they showed out. now the clock resets until they win it all again and the waiting begins anew. but today -- it's time to party. >> the best world series ever. >> reporter: the party continues here in chicago. we've got a tweet to report from the president of the united states. a white sox fan, we should point out.
7:05 am
he says, "it happened. cubs win world series. that's change even this south sider can believe in. want to come to the white house before i leave? it is a standing invitation for the cubs. we'll see if they take him up on it. back to you. >> ron mott in the thick of it, thank you. >> you know who was up watching the game? bob costas was watching the game and he joins us now. bob, see if you agree with this. even without all the history, all the baggage, the drought, the frustration for these two baseball cities, i think this is one of the greatest world series games i've ever seen. >> yeah. it is one of the great game sevens, as you said, matt, even if you take away all the back story. one of the great game sevens, the back and forth. it had heroics, it had misplays, strategy that was brilliant, strategies that could be questioned. both teams right off the bat. it went right to the end of the game. >> is there a moment, bob, if you are a cubs fan and 50 years
7:06 am
from now you are telling your grandkids about that game seven in 2016, was there one moment that kind of crystallized it all? >> well, they blew a lead, a sizable lead, and then everybody across cub nation was saying, oh, my gosh, here we go again. but cleveland has its own experience with that. you had two teams with not exactly parallel histories with but overlapping histories. so i think there was some anxiety involved. but i guess if you had to pick out one thing, it would be the zobrist hit after the rain delay that gave them the lead in the top of the tenth, although the indians battled back and pulled it within one and had a man on when it all ended. >> as if hollywood needed a movie. the skies open up, here comes the tarp. cubs go in and have a players-only meeting. i'm trying to imagine who the actors are going to be when i watch that on the big screen. >> well, apparently jason
7:07 am
heyward, a terrific base runner who's struggled the a the plate but had his moments in the postseason, he's parentally led that brief meeting. and the indians had a little bit of mojo going because davis had hit the home run to tie the game in the eighth inning. if there was any momentum, it seemed to belong to cleveland. some people will theorize that the rain delay kind of reset things and gave the cubs a chance to get their bearings again and they came back out and got the two runs in the top half of the tenth inning. >> you talk about strategy. you may be referring to one of those strategic calls when joe maddon takes out hendricks in the fifth who's in the middle of pitching a gem. brings in lester. then that pitch hits david ross in the mask. next thing you know, cleveland scores two runs. had the cubs not won that game, bob, how much second-guessing of that call would there have been? >> joe maddon is one of the great modern managers but the way he used his pitching staff, chapman and the quick hooks for arrieta and hendricks in gave
7:08 am
circumstances and seven would have opened him up to legitimate second-guessing plus all the noise and nonsense on talk radio and social media had the cubs lost. but since won, it is all forgotten and everybody loves maddon. >> what's it mean to the city of chicago, bob? >> well, it means more than can possibly be expressed, as it would have meant to cleveland, because they had waited since 1948 and haven't won a title in any sport since 1964. i mean after all in chicago, the blackhawks have won, the bears have won, michael jordan's bulls won six times. cleveland had been without one in any sport since '64 until cavs won in the string. then they were looking to double down in the fall so it would have meant a lot there. but when it comes to just baseball in chicago, even though the white sox won in 2005, the cubs are the team, they are "the" identity of chicago baseball. to go from 1908 to 2016 -- and i think it is very important that wrigley field was built in 1914.
7:09 am
it wasn't called wrigley field until a bit later. but wrigley field is the place where all this played out. just like fenway park still exists. so all the ghosts were there when they finally broke through in 2004. all the ghosts, all the history, all that resides at wrigley field. had they moved for a new ballpark in the interim, even had it been 108 years, i don't think it would have quite the texture and drama. wrigley field still stands. people gathered at wrigley field even when the game was in cleveland to experience it communally. >> we wanted a good world series. we got a great world series. bob, thanks. we'll have a lot more on the cubs' first title in 108 years, including al's big night at the ballpark. >> we are jealous. turning now to politics, the state of the presidential race. five days to go now. during a rally in florida, donald trump urged himself to avoid getting sidetracked in the campaign's final days telling the crowd he is going to stay on point. >> quinnipiac university is out with a new poll of likely voters
7:10 am
in four swing states. it could decide this election. in head-to-head match-ups, clinton leads by just two points in florida and north carolina. she's up by six points in pennsylvania. but take a look at ohio where trump has moved ahead with a three-point advantage. >> it is a family affair on the trail today. both candidates will be in north carolina this afternoon. melania trump then heads to pennsylvania, rare campaign appearance for her. former president bill clinton heads to nevada and chelsea clinton will rally voters if had wisconsin. >> we have reports from both campaigns starting with donald trump's. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is down in miami this morning. >> reporter: good morning. this morning, campaign aides to donald trump tell me they're very encouraged by new polling that shows a tightening race in some critical states like colorado and new hampshire. but perhaps the biggest news these days from the trump campaign is just how little news donald trump is making, largely sticking to the script even encouraging himself out loud not
7:11 am
to veer off message. celebrating new momentum in some of the latest polls, donald trump giving himself a pep talk here in must-win florida. >> stay on point, donald. stay on point. [ laughter ] no sidetracks, donald. nice and easy. >> reporter: trump in the homestretch of the campaign more disciplined, ticking off a checklist of attacks on hillary clinton, dismissing her as unhinged. >> she's the candidate of yesterday. we are the movement of the future. >> reporter: the crowd reacting on cue. just days to go, both campaigns making sure they touch all the bases, airing competing ads last night during game seven of the world series. >> hillary clinton won't change washington. >> because all it takes is one wrong move. >> reporter: as trump tries to carve a path to 270 electoral votes, kellyanne conway is
7:12 am
defending her boss on "the view." >> let me tell you what's nasty. he's the first republican to ever elevate a woman to this position as a campaign manager. >> yeah, he loves women. come on. come on. >> yes, he does. he is very respectful toward women. >> reporter: this as trump targets the media, nbc's katy tur, for missing a movement. >> they're mott reponot reporti. they're something happening, katy. >> reporter: with the florida rate too close to call, trump is trying o you the a new strategy. >> the polls are all saying we are going to win florida. don't believe it. don't believe it. get out there and vote. pretend we're slightly behind. pretend we're down. right. >> reporter: nearly 16 months after launching his campaign, trump almost appearing wistful. >> it has been the honor of my life to share this journey with you. it has absolutely been. there are two people, however,
7:13 am
who i did not really get to share this with. and that's my mother, and my father. i know they're up there watching. i just felt that nice breeze. it's hot. but i just felt that nice breeze so they're helping us out. >> reporter: one note about the international section of politics and baseball. in the last eight world series, since 1924, decided in a game seven, during a presidential election year, every time the american league team won, the republican candidate won. every time the national league team won, the democrats won. so if you believe in baseball as any predictor, this morning it is advantage clinton. matt and savannah, back to you. >> you need a chalkboard for that, dry erase board. peter, thank you. we've been talking about hillary clinton. she's doing everything she can to turn out voters in the key battlegrounds. nbc's andrea mitchell is in one of those battlegrounds, raleigh, north carolina, this morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah.
7:14 am
hillary clinton coming here to campaign in battleground north carolina. she'll be joined later today in this park by bernie sanders in a state that had been leaning democratic. but now is called by nbc news a toss-up as in the closing days clinton crisscrosses the country trying to shore up support in the face of those tightening polls. hillary clinton witnessing her hometown cubs win the world series, spending 45 minutes backstage after her campaign rally in arizona watching the game on an ipad with aides. afterwards rejoicing and holding up the cubs victory flag. later tweeting, "they did it! 108 years later and the drought is finally over. way to make history. cubs." the celebration coming after clinton drew one of her biggest crowds at that arizona rally. her first stop there this campaign. >> hello, arizona! >> reporter: it's a long shot for her. trying to become the first democrat to win the state since bill clinton 20 years ago. >> so for the first time we have
7:15 am
a real chance to turn this state blue again. >> reporter: withal polls in arizona showing her locked in a tight race with donald trump, clinton is targeting the state's growing block of the latino voters. >> you know, about half the people he wants to deport, they paid more in federal taxes than donald trump has paid. >> reporter: earlier in nevada, snapchatting at a hair braiding salon and trying to fire up her volunteers. >> if we turn out our voters, you know what happens? we win! >> reporter: clinton rallying las vegas supporters with a new closing argument. imagining donald trump in the oval office. >> our girls would grow up with a president who proudly ranks women by their looks, who brags about doing things to them without their consent. whe where. >> reporter: with her own high unfavorable ratings her biggest challenge, the candidate worrying people will just stay
7:16 am
home. >> for people saying, maybe i'll just sit this one out, you know, i can't really make up my mind, i don't know who's going to really help me and my family. >> reporter: so she is leaning heavily on a network of democrats. in addition to bernie sanders today, her husband, bill clinton, running mate tim kaine, and vice president joe biden all fanning out across the country. and her star surrogate, president obama, set to rally democrats in florida today. clinton now trying to avoid talking about her recent e-mail controversy. but for the first time, president obama taking a swipe at his fbi director, james comey. >> there is a norm that when there are investigations, we don't operate on innuendo. we don't operate on incomplete information. we don't operate on leaks. we operate based on concrete decisions that are made. >> reporter: a challenge for democrats this year is that the early vote among african-americans is below what it was four years ago.
7:17 am
partly because of legal challenges, obstacles in places like north carolina. partly because hillary clinton is not barack obama. savannah and matt? >> andrea mitchell in north carolina, thank you. i think we've got a shot now -- hopefully. this is in -- this is in chicago. this is at wrigley field where the cubs are arriving home early this morning, getting off a bus. as you can see, there are fans. that's jason heyward there. some of the fans are still gathered. still waiting to find out when the big celebration is going to be. or it is just going to continue, i'm sure, in chicago. >> i still see some huge smiles. they've probably just been going since the middle of the night. >> so al is a long-time cleveland indians fan. so first, al, sorry about that. and sorry that you also traveled all night to get to chicago.
7:18 am
[ cheers ] >> reporter: one of the most famous fans, bill murray, got into the musical feel of things during one of the innings, starts dancing, trying to get that mojo going. and despite that torrential downpour, the spirit and festivities continued on the field. in fact, i got into the locker room last night. the big hero, mvp -- benzo br t zobrist. i caught up with him after the game. we'll show you that conversation in the next half-hour. i also met up with his lovely wife, juliana. and their baby. i was actually down by the

7:35 am
to be as close to a national holiday in chicago as anything you could possibly see. >> all right, al, i'm glad you got to experience it, even if it didn't turn out the way you hoped, i'm glad you were there at the game. >> thanks, guys. carson's over in the orange room with reaction to game seven. carson. >> well, this says it right here. cover of this morning's new york post -- "game of the century." cubs and their fans as you just saw with al. perhaps no bigger cubs fan than bill murray. the actor here. you can see him in the stands just going nuts. then after the game he was taking some champagne to the face here from theo ebbstein. that's the cubs' president, rather. in an honest moment, cubs' first baseman anthony rizzo having this conversation kind of candidly caught online. here we go.

8:22 am
there were 31 credible allegations of voter impersonation at the polls. >> 31. >> 31 in a period in which over 1 billion ballots were cast. i mean you're literally more likely to get struck like a lightning bolt than to have someone impersonate you at the polls. >> he says the data are overwhelmingly for democrats. >> now we have photo i.d. i think photo i.d. is going to make a little bit of a difference. >> if i could say one message to politicians who are supporting these voter i.d. laws i would say, let me vote. i'm an american. i've earned my right to vote. let me vote. >> after weeks of lobbying for the vote riders, she was given a temporary exception to the rules. but she says no one should have to fight the way she has.

afternoon but we're seeing some areas of fog this morning as the temperatures climb, the fog disappears and then there's a chance of showers, just a chance in philadelphia. they're more likely in the suburbs and the lehigh valley, where we keep temperatures cooler at 68 degrees. there's a cold front coming through that will give us a chance of showers and bring the temperatures down as we head into the weekend. 70s today. 50s tomorrow, and that cool weather stays with us through the weekend, and into next week. have a great day. >> and that is your latest weather. m mr. lauer? >> all right. thank you, mr. roker. now to the movember foundation's candid video encouraging men to open up. we sat down down with two movem ambassadors to hear their stories. >> men are so focused on the ideal of masculinity and how
8:33 am
they have to appear to be. we forget to cry. we forget to be emotional, to show vulnerability, to show pain. >> for a long time, there's been this gender stereotype that men are meant to be really tough and strong and brave. when i dropped out of high school, it was because i was mentally unwell. >> at 17 i was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a severe form. in battling that disease, people forgot that i was a human being. >> i know how hard it is to talk about this sort of stuff. i know how much of a barrier it can be for men. >> we need to talk about this. we need to be honest about it. >> it's one of those things that's kept under wraps so much. it is so much more common than we realize and we just hide it. >> let's change the conversation. let's make it a point for humankind to recognize that the brain is an organ just like every other part of the body, and sometimes needs help. >> every single person on the
8:34 am
planet can be a part of making mental health mainstream. >> whatever you're going through, whatever pain you're experiencing, you matter most. it's okay to be in pain. you're human. >> doesn't make you a bad person. doesn't make you less of a person. it makes you someone who has a condition or a situation that can be helped. so please get the help. you'll thank yourself for it later. >> here with more on men and mental health, dr. receisteven r and mehmet oz. tuesday we talked about men being embarrassed to talk about testicular cancer. now we're talking about men being embarrassed to talk about mental health. >> it is about quality of life. we don't want to back away from existence. we ask questions in our surveys, provocative insights gained
8:35 am
about why men aren't talking about their minds. >> nearly 46% of men say they are embarrassed to share their feelings about mental health. this is significant -- 49% admit they are feeling more depressed than they let on. >> men don't ask for directions when they're lost either. it is a male quality of not wanting to get help. go it alone. be brave. it is a known male quality but sometimes it can get in your way. >> when you come across men, how do they get past this hurdle? >> a lot of folks think they have to man up. we even have that phrase. if you want to man up, protect your family. the most important thing a man needs to do is be there for his family. if men aren't healthy they can't walk their daughter down the aisle, they won't be there for the rest of their family in they need some help. >> does depression manifest itself differently in men than it does in women? >> well, there are more commonalities than there are differences. men tend to have an irritability thing. perhaps more than women. they get irritable, they get enraged. men want to go off by
8:36 am
themselves. they want to do that anyway. they want to go off by themselves, because they are irritable, nothing feels good. often they do self-destructive habits like drinking and drug use because nothing feels good. >> this series is geared toward men but it should also be geared toward the women in our lives. how do women play a role in this to try to help guys become more communicative about things like this? >> first, use sports metaphors. but actually, literally, saw pass the ball to me, honey. i'm here, too. you don't have to do it all yourself. in this survey we did together we found profound things about men and they're very different from women. women want to be there to help. let women help you. if women say that to a man, he'll step down a little bit and say, okay, i'll let it happen. otherwise, they will lie to themselves and deny. >> sports metaphors is good. war metaphors in fact. men gear mentally for battle. don't let the enemy know you are showing weakness.

8:40 am
some patients say has literally reversed their symptoms and allowed them to live a normal life. ♪ >> reporter: at 50, deborah says her brain is sharper than decades before. >> mentally i feel at least in my 30s. it is amazing. >> reporter: amazing because this mother of four has the alzheimer's gene and struggled with serious cognitive decline in her 40s. >> i was forgetting things. it became increasingly difficult for me to recognize people's faces. and my fuzziness worried me because it wasn't like me. >> reporter: terrified of her future, deborah began an experimental protocol designed to stop the symptoms of alzheimer's. it's called the bredesen program. >> we are getting results that haven't been seen before. >> reporter: california neurologist dr. dale bredesen created it. >> how are you attacking alzheimer's in a new and
8:41 am
groundbreaking way? >> we spent 27 years in the laboratory looking at what are the features that drive the underlying problem? >> reporter: he believes alzheimer's is caused by dozens of imbalances in the body that his program is designed to fix. his daily protocol includes eating a mediterranean diet high in vegetables and good fats, regular cardio exercise, fasting at least 12 hours after dinner, brain training exercises, getting at least eight hours of sleep, and a regimen of supplements to address each patient's deficiencies. >> you are saying that all of these things done together reverses cognitive impairment and/or alzheimer's. >> yes. we see improvement time after time after time. >> reporter: in a small published study, bredesen found his program boosted cognitive functioning in 9 out of 10 alzheimer's patients within six months. so much so, some could even
8:42 am
return to work. did the bredesen program save your brain? >> yeah. >> reporter: this study patient asked us to hide his identity because he is a working physician diagnosed with early onset alzheimer's. when his memory started to slip, he began the bredesen program. a year in, he says his symptoms disappeared. his cognitive test scores back to normal. today, you're still practicing. >> very much so. i'm just functioning very high now. >> reporter: bredesen says his program only works for patients in early stages of the disease. do you consider yourself the alzheimer's cure? >> no, of course not. the longest we have the person on a program is four and a half years. we've not had a single example yet out of the hundreds in which someone has gone on the program, gotten better, stayed on the program, and then gotten worse. >> reporter: he's now partnered with the cleveland clinic for a larger clinical trial of his program. critics say until more research
8:43 am
is done, the verdict is still out. but patients like deborah say they're living proof it works. >> i would stand on my rooftop and shout it out to people. >> i really felt like my life was saved. >> well, the alzheimer's association says it is encouraged by dr. bredesen's initial results, but they do say further study is needed. dozens of doctors across the country have now been trained to administer his program which you can find out more about at today.com. next year he's going to publish a book about his program. lot of people excited about this. other doctors saying wait, don't rush. this is not a cure. and also in this space it is all now about intervention and prevention. get to people early on. >> the good news is it can't hurt, right? it can only help. >> but people talking a lot about fat in the diet. i thought the fact about fasting was interesting. and interval exercises, not just
8:44 am
walking or going to the gym but really pushing blood to your brain. >> complicated causes but also complicated solutions. >> exa actually. coming up next, jill transforms one deserving veteran's junk room into the ultimate man cave. but first, this is "today" on nbc. you out. no warning, no hearing. it's a lending practice so outrageous, most states banned it. but at the bank founded by pat toomey it was business as usual. forcing small business owners out of their homes. toomey even used his power in the senate to help himself, voting to gut rules that protect us and crack down on big banks. pat toomey. out for himself, not us. dscc is responsible for the content of this advertising.

9:02 am
even more. it was unreal. >> you hope it goes to a game seven and extra innings. maybe not the rain delay. >> even the rain delay was pa nice little change of pace. >> i couldn't believe it. >> give the grounds crew a chance to be in the spotlight for a minute. >> you are a sports guy though. you are very athletic. >> well, thank you. >> am i wrong? >> i'd like to think of myself that way. >> who were you rooting for? was your heart with one team or not? >> i'm from cincinnati. cleveland's like the hated rival. then the cubs are actually our rival within our division so to me it was like the lesser of two evils. >> ooh. >> but i think just the long suffering cubs fans. to see cubs fans finally have a chance to relish that moment. although i did hear somebody say they've lost their identity now. they're no longer the loveable losers. so what's the fan base going to do? >> the lovable winners. >> we saw a video of them arriving early this morning. for some reason i decided to tweet through the game. so i had an event last night.
9:03 am
i was not sober -- i wasn't drunk but i wasn't sober. >> that's when you're typing and you're so focused -- >> i know. i never, ever tweet under any influence of anger or anything because you can really ruin your career and embarrass your family. and so i tried not to do that yesterday. >> what are some of the things? >> some of the tweets i sent -- please, theo for president or my agent. the curse whisperer lives. this is what we call sports in america! and then i said -- >> you are a he so dramatic! >> big moment. >> i was like -- someone said don't you have to go to work? i'm like worry about work tomorrow. then i said here comes the rain again. tenth inning. it just went on. then i snapchatted. you can see -- i think it goes away in 24 hours. >> think about theo though. guy breaks the curse in boston. youngest gm ever. >> say it again. >> boston. >> you said it right. >> does it in boston, turns around and does it in chicago. you got to hire him in cincinnati. it's been a while for the reds

9:05 am
but they kept going from locker room to locker room as the -- as the lead changed. back, forth, back, forth. it was so close. it was incredible. then of course, chicago finally pulls it out and i got to tell you, even though the game was played in cleveland, i think half the people in the stands were from chicago. >> hey! >> you see that final out and the crowd could goes nuts. and afterwards, even after the game was over, and the -- look at bill murray. he's just -- he was there. he has been such a long-time cubs fan. dancing in the stands, having a great time. and then of course theo ebbstps, bill and theo were in the clubhouse afterwards celebrating with champagne. it was spectacular. i got to go in to the locker room. i talked with ben zobrist. i mean this was his first year
9:06 am
as a chicago cub. and, boy, what a first year to have. it was -- in fact, i ran into his wife, julianna. all of a sudden she -- during the rain delay, guys, they had all come out away from the field. he goes out, she runs back in. she runs in to me. she says i got to get back out there. i've got to see him. he is at bat. he hits that game-winning hit and the rest is history. it was perhaps -- >> yeah! woo! >> like i said, make no bones about it, i'm a cleveland indians fan. i lifved in cleveland for five years. everybody that took part in that game had something to be proud of. whatever team won, nobody was going to complain about it. but, look. if you're going to lose to a team, you want to lose to the chicago cubs. a team with destiny. it was a spectacular night. >> woo! >> al, we're so happy you're coming back home tomorrow.
