GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - A southeast side Grand Rapids man is showing off his Chicago pride, as the Chicago Cubs go into Game 7 of the World Series tonight.

The "Cubbie blue" house, complete with white trim and a Cubs flag, is on Menominee Road near Plymouth Avenue.  And the man who owns it does happen to be the morning newscast director of the FOX 17 Morning News, Robert Davidson.

Davidson is a die hard Cubs fan, but the paint color happened to be just a coincidence.  Several Cubs fans in the neighborhood are enjoying it too.

Davidson and his wife also have a 'community library' in their front yard that matches the house.  They take free books from neighbors that they then share with others.

The Cubs try to win their first World Series championship in 108 years tonight.  Coverage starts at 7:00pm here on FOX 17.
