Cubs fans crash website selling World Series rings
Chicago Cubs fans were so eager to buy themselves a part of history that they crashed the website selling the team’s World Series rings.
The Cubs on Wednesday received their championship rings for winning the World Series last year. The rings are spectacular and feature 108 diamonds to reflect the 108 years the team went between championships.
Jostens, the company that made the rings, also has made a few different versions of the ring available for fans to purchase. The price ranges from $10,800 for the high-end ring to $299 for a lower-end replica version.
Cubs fans with a little money to spend of course wanted to see what was available for purchase and ended up flocking to Jostens’ site with such frequency that they crashed it:

The site came back up, and you can view what’s available here.
If you had to wait 108 years between titles, you’d probably be that excited about a ring too. Heck, Cubs fans were getting up in the middle of the night just to watch their team in the World Series.
