On Saturday, the Chicago Cubs made the World Series for the first time since 1945. Hillary Clinton caught the game. And she made *that* face again — you know the one.

Chicago defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-0, breaking a drought of 71 years.

Nick Merrill, traveling press secretary for Clinton, tweeted a picture of the Democratic presidential nominee looking positively enthralled by the Cubs' win.

According to theChicago Sun-Times, which traced her flip floppery on the issue, Clinton laid out how she could be both during a 2014 speech for the Economic Club of Chicago.

"When I was a little girl, I quickly caught on that being a Cubs fan was more of a tenet of religious faith than any kind of passing fancy," she said. "Once a Cubs fan, always a Cubs fan, but my personality was such that I couldn't stay hitched only to a losing team and I couldn't, with all due respect to my dear friends from my childhood who are rapid Sox fans, I could not become a Sox fan.

"So I had to search for a team that would counterbalance the experience of losing every single year, so — I hate to say this, and I know you'll probably boo me — I became a Yankees fan"

So Cubs = Yankees > Red Sox?

Baseball politics. So confusing.
