Cubs fans are showing off their team pride pretty prominently in Chicago since the team advanced to the NLCS. But out of town fans are having plenty of fun with it as well.
During the Thursday Night Football game between the Falcons and Saints, a fan waved the white and blue “W” flag behind the goalposts as the Saints attempted a field goal.

In an era when the NFL is king, it’s interesting to see October baseball not only bleed into football, but an out of market game.
That flag has had plenty of action so far in the playoffs. The Cubs have won four of five playoff games so far as they await their NLCS opponent.
