Chicago Cubs fans were partying like it was 1908 on Saturday - only there were traffic lights this time.

The Cubs, in search of their first World Series title in more than 100 years, clinched their first NL pennant since 1945 after defeating the Dodgers in six games, triggering a party in the streets of Chicago decades in the making.

Among the hijinks and shenanigans - which included underwearless coaches and a thirsty elderly fan craving shots of Jagermeister - were fans outside Wrigley Field taking turns climbing traffic poles and jumping off into mosh pits of Cubs-crazed delirium.

Chicago will have a few more days to bask in the glory of its long-awaited NL championship until the Cubs visit Cleveland on Tuesday for Game 1 of the World Series at Progressive Field.
