These Cubs fans are roaring.
The lions outside of the Art Institute of Chicago received Cubs hats on Monday morning in honor of the team’s first trip to the World Series since 1945. WGN TV provided live coverage of the caps being placed on the statues around 8 a.m. ET.
As the pictures below show, getting a hat on these animals takes a bit of work.
The Art Institute’s support of the city’s sports teams has become a Chicago tradition. In the past, the lions have worn Bears, White Sox, and Blackhawks gear during those teams’ championship runs.
Of course, it has been a while since the Cubs were in the World Series. This marks the first time these lions have sported Cubs hats.
