Bears DC Vic Fangio predicts Chicago Cubs World Series title


LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio boldly predicted a Word Series title for the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday.

Apparently the well-traveled 36-year coaching veteran has a history of being a good luck charm for local baseball teams.

“In San Francisco, I was there for five years, and the Giants won three World Series; they had never won one before,” Fangio said. “I was in Houston (2005) when they got to their only World Series. I bring good luck to the baseball teams.”

Fangio said he may run for public office if the Cubs win their first World Series since 1908.

“If they win, I probably could. Or at least they’d hire me at least,” Fangio said.

The Cubs play at Pittsburgh Wednesday evening in the National League wild card game.
