7:01 am
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 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.
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 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
7:03 am
a thrilling home run tying it 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 a 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 with a home run.
7:04 am
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 bek >> 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
7:05 am
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 greates >> 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
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 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.
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 tal 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
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 m 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
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. 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.
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 clinton will rally voters if had wisconsin. >> we have reports from both campaigns starting with donald peter alexander down in miami this morning. good morning. >> matt and savannah, good morning to you. perhaps the biggest news these days from the trump campaign is how little news
7:11 am
future. >> reporter: the crowd reacting on cue. just days to go, both campaigns just days to go both campaigns making sure they touch all the bases. >> hillary clinton won't change washington because all it takes is one wrong move. >> as trump tries to carve a path to 270 electoral votes.
7:12 am
people i care about. >> let me tell you what is nasty. nasty is hillary clinton -- >> no, no, no. tell you what's . 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 not reporting it. they're something ha 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.
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 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,
7:14 am
savannah. hillary clinton coming here to hillary clinton coming here to battle in north carolina, and she will be joined later today in the park by bernie sanders in a state that had been leaning democratic but now is called by nbc news a toss up, and in the upcoming days she is sure to shore up the numbers. >> spending 45 minutes backstage after her campaign rally in ipad with aides. 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. it's a long shot for her, trying to become the first democrat to win the state since bill clinton
7:15 am
a real chance to turn this state blue again. >> with polls in arizona showing her locked in a tight race with donald trump, clinton is targeting the state's growing block of latino voters. >> about half the people he wants to deport, they paid more in federal taxes than donald trump has paid. >> earlier in nevada, snapchating at a hair braiding salon. and trying to fire up her volunteers. >> if we turn out voters, you know what happens? we win. and imagining donald trump in the oval office. >> our girls would grow up with a president that proudly ranks women by their looks and brags about doing things to them without their consent. >> with her own high unfavorable ratings a big challenge, clinton worries some voters will just stay home.
7:16 am
maybe i will just sit this one out. i don't -- i can't really make up my mind. i don't know who is really going to help me and my family. >> reporter: she is leaning heavily on a network of democrats in addition to bernie sanders today, her husband bill clinton, and running mate, tim kaine, and joe biden all fanning out across the country, and president obama set to rally democrats in florida today. clinton trying to avoid about her recent e-mail controversy. but for the first time president obama taking a swipe at his fbi director, james comey. >> there's a norm that when there are investigations we don't operate on innuendo or incomplete information or leaks, we operate based on concrete decisions that are made.
7:17 am
african-americans are less than what it was a year ago, partly because hillary clinton is not barack obama. savannah and matt? >> thank you. i think we have a shot now -- yeah, this is in chicago, and this is at wrigley field where the cubs are arriving home early this morning, getting off the bus, and as you can see there are fans, jason heyward there, and still waiting to find out when the celebration will be. >> i still see huge smiles. >> al, sorry you travelled all night to get to chicago.

[ cheering ] of the most famous fans, bill phaoury got into the musical feel of things in one of the and despite the torrential downpour, the spirit and festivities continued on the field and in fact, i got into the locker room last night, the big hero, mvp, ben zobrist, i got up with him after the game and we will show you that conversation coming up in the next half hour. i also met up with their lovely wife and baby, and i was down 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 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.
