Country Music Fans Are Angry About Beyoncé’s performance at the CMAs

Beyoncé broke the Internet last night by performing at the Country Music Awards – but not in a good way.

ABC broke the news that Beyoncé would be performing during the CMA’s and viewers immediately took to social media to share their anger, saying that they were going to boycott the award show.

One person tweeted, “Why is Beyoncé performing at the CMA Awards? She should stick to her lame music and stay away from country.”

Despite the negative feedback, Beyoncé did indeed perform at the CMAs.  She sang a song called “Daddy Lessons” with the Dixie Chicks – and finished with a standing ovation from the audience.

 

For the First Time in 108 Years, the Chicago Cubs Are Not Losers! 

The Chicago Cubs ended their 108-year championship drought last night, beating the Cleveland Indians in a thrilling Game Seven by a score of 8-to-7.

But it definitely wasn't easy.  For starters, they came back from a 3 games to 1 deficit to win the whole thing, which almost never happens in baseball. 

Then, in last night's Game Seven they were up 5-1, but the Indians stormed all the way back, and tied it at 6 in the 8th inning.  The game went into extra innings, there was a rain delay (I fell asleep), and even after the Cubs scored two in the Top of the 10th, the Indians gave them a scare by cutting the lead in half in the bottom of the 10th.

But then FINALLY, after all that, the Cubs got a ground out to end the game.

BEN ZOBRIST got the Cubs game-winning hit in the top of the 10th and was named the World Series MVP.
