Cubs Fan, 101 Years Old, Watches Chicago Move Closer To The Unthinkable

(CBS) -- One special Cubs fan has been waiting more than a century to see a postseason victory – 101 years, to be exact.

CBS 2's Brad Edwards introduces us to Loretta Dolan.

On a picture-perfect Monday, Loretta attended her first playoff game at Wrigley and recalled decades and decades of tracking the Cubs. On quite a few occasions, she says, she would cry when her team didn't win.

She was treated to a dramatic victory Monday, as the Cubs beat their archrivals, the St. Louis Cardinals, to take a 2-1 lead in the National League Division Series.

Was it all worth the wait?

"Oh, yes," Loretta said on her way out of Wrigley.
