Just because the Chicago Cubs snapped their 108-year World Series drought earlier this week doesn’t mean they can start relaxing just yet.
Following Friday’s legendary World Series parade – which, Chicago police told WGN-TV, drew an estimated 5 million fans – a bunch of Cubs players will head to New York to appear on the upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live, catcher David Ross told MLB Network.
(Incidentally, the Cubs have popped up in plenty of SNL sketches over the years, as Will Ferrell has impersonated their late broadcaster, Harry Caray, on the show countless times.)
Though it’s not known if a date has been set, the Cubs’ championship press junket will then head to Washington, D.C., as outgoing president Barack Obama was gracious enough to invite the 2016 World Series champions to visit him at the White House despite his lifelong allegiance to the White Sox.
It happened: @Cubs win World Series. That’s change even this South Sider can believe in. Want to come to the White House before I leave?

The Cubs will need to hurry, however, as Obama’s last day as commander-in-chief is January 20, 2017.
