Chicago Cubs World Series Celebration Draws 7th Largest Gathering In History

When a team goes 108 years between World Series titles, you have to expect the celebration is going to be a big one. Sure enough, when the Cubs held their celebration for their 2016 World Series title, they drew one of the largest crowds in human history.

Here is the full list:

1. Kumbh Mela pilgrimage, India, 2013 – 30 million

2. Arbaeen festival, Iraq, 2014 – 17 million

3. Funeral of CN Annadurai, India, 1969 – 15 million

4. Funeral of Ayatollah Khomeini, Iran, 1989 – 10 million

5. Papal gathering in the Philippines, 2015 – 6 million

6. World Youth Day, 1995 – 5 million

7. Chicago Cubs World Series celebration – 5 million

8. Funeral of Gamal Abdel Nasser, 1970 – 5 million

9. Rod Stewart concert, Brazil, 1994 – 3.5 million

10. Hajj pilgrimage, Mecca, Saudi Arabia, 2012 – 3 million

11. Anti-war march, Rome, 2003 – 3 million

There are two serious questions needed to be asked about this list.

First, where are the Donald Trump rallies? I’ve been told he has the BIGGEST rallies. Bigger than anybody. I suspect this is all rigged!

Second, how in the name of God did Rod Stewart draw 3.5 million people to a concert?
