The Chicago Cubs ended a 108-year old drought by winning the World Series and they brought the trophy to visit their friends, the Chicago Blackhawks, on Sunday.

Jayson Heyward, Kyle Schwarber and Mike Montgomery of the Major League Baseball champions stepped out on the United Center ice with their newly won hardware.

The Blackhawks, of course, know plenty about reaching the pinnacle of sports, having raised the Stanley Cup in 2010, 2013 and 2015.

Veteran catcher David Ross was also in attendance, but Montgomery's visit was especially interesting. The Cubs reliever who induced the final out in an 8-7 win in Game 7 against the Cleveland Indians said he was told he looks like Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa.
