CLEVELAND -- The only person more excited than Anthony Rizzo about the Cubs' World Series win is Anthony Rizzo's dad.

WGN's Patrick Elwood ran into John Rizzo on the field shortly after the win, and once John realized who he was, he gave him a HUGE bear hug.

"We said it the first day. If anybody remembers, Anthony did an interview and I said, 'Tell him we're gonna win the World Series,' and he did, and everybody said, 'Oh, what's this kid saying?' And we did. We won the World Series," he said.

He added: "Being a Yankee fan, a Marlins fan, and being a lot in baseball, I've never met fans like Chicago fans."

Congrats to John, Anthony and all the entire team!
