7:01 am
>> voters heading to the polls in just five days. and did we mention? cubs win. an epic championship worth repeating. al was there for the game and has made his way to chicago overnight to join the history making celebration today, thursday, november 3rd, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthriv studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everybody. welcome to "today" on a great thursday morning. matt, where were you 108 years ago? >> can i just say, oh, baby. >> i know, right? >> a game. i said to my son, this is a game you'll tell your kids about. game seven of this world series. >> not only do we have a game seven, we get a great game seven with all of this drama. even an act of god, a rain delay. it had everything.
7:02 am
night. he's made his way to chicago. got some screaming fans behind him. he's probably a little bit disappointed this morning. >> not in that crowd. i think everybody is just excited because it's a great day for baseball and for sports. so let's start with nbc's ron mott. he's made his way to chicago. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. a lot of bleary eyed folks in this town, including myself. i've got just one question. how about them cubs? [ cheers and applause ] a phenomenal game, not for the faint of heart, because there were palpitations across the country, especially here in chicago and over in cleveland, but at the end of the day, the cubs' heart was just a beat or two stronger than the indians'. >> here's the o'1. >> reporter: a finish not even hollywood could muster. >> the cubs have finally won it all! >> reporter: the unbelievable
7:03 am
a four-run lead, a thrilling home run tying it for the indians in the eighth, a rain delay, and extra innings in this game for the ages. then the clincher. ben zobrist in the tenth. >> zobrist! >> reporter: and with that, the chicago cubs broke the curse and the drought. world series champions again for the first time since 1908. all around the windy city and outside wrigley field overnight, just as sweet as the bubbly bath players soaked in after beating the indians in a dramatic game seven. >> cubs, number one, baby. >> chicago's just exploding with happiness. >> reporter: anchored by pitcher kyle hendricks, steady as he was stoic, the cubs struck quickly. leadoff hitter dexter fowler opening the game with a home run. >> out against the wall, it is
7:04 am
pair of dingers in the fourth and sixth innings to hang on for the victory despite the spirited charge by the indians. >> i believe this team is into making history, not repeating history. >> reporter: bye-bye to the billy goat and his curse. so long, steve bartman. no harm, no foul. all is forgiven now that history's been rewritten. >> this is why i came here, to break the goat or black cat or god knows what. >> reporter: the mood somber but proud >> we'll be back next year. >> reporter: the late legendary cubs broadcaster harry carey once famously said some day the cubs are going to be in the world series. his beloved cubbies doing more than just showing up, they showed out. now the clock resets until they win it all again, and the waiting begins anew. but today it's time to party. >> the best world series ever. >> reporter: all right. the party continues here in
7:05 am
the president of the united states, a white sox fan, we should point out. he says, it happens, the cubs win the world series, the change a south side with believe in. a standing invitation for the cubs. matt, savannah, back to you. >> ron mott in the thick of it. thank you. >> you know who was up watching the game? bob costas was watching the game. he joins us now. bob, see if you agree with this. even without all the history, all the baggage, the drought, the frustration for these two baseball cities, i think this is games i've ever seen. >> yeah, it's one of the great game sevens, as you said, matt, even if you take away all the back story. one of the great game sevens, the back and forth. it had heroics. it had misplays. it had strategy that was brilliant, strategy that could be questioned. it went right down to the last pitch of the game. it had everything, even if it didn't involve two franchises with such star-crossed
7:06 am
>> is there a moment, bob -- i mean, if you're a cubs fan and 50 years from now you're telling your grandkids about that game seven, was there one moment that crystallized it all? >> well, they blew a lead, a sizable lead, and then everybody across cub nation was saying, oh, my gosh, here we go again. but cleveland has its own experience with that. you had two teams with not exactly parallel histories but overlapping histories. so i think there was some anxiety involved, but i guess if you had to pick out one thing, it would be the zobrist hit after the rain delay that gave them the lead in the top of the tenth. although, the indians battled back and pulled to within one and had a man on when it finally ended. >> as if hollywood needed more to make a great movie. talk about that rain delay. the skies opened up. here comes the tarp. the cubs players go in and have a players' only meeting. i'm trying to imagine who the actors are going to be when i
7:07 am
heyward, a great fielder who has struggled at the plate most of the season, apparently led that brief meeting. and the indians had a little bit of mojo going because rajai davis had hit the home run to tie the game in the eighth inning. so if there was any momentum, it seemed to belong to cleveland, and some people will theorize that the rain delay kind of reset things and gave the cubs a chance to get their bearings again and came back out and got two runs in the top half of the tenth inning. i think you may be referring to one of those strategic calls when joe maddon takes out hendricks in the fifth, who's in the middle of pitching a gem, brings in lester. then that pitch hits david ross in the mask and cleveland scores two runs. had the cubs not won that game, bob, how much second guessing of that call would there have been? >> joe maddon is one of the great modern managers, but the way he used his pitching staff,
7:08 am
six and seven, would have opened him up to legitimate second guessing plus all the noise and nonsense on talk radio and social media, had the cubs lost. but since they won, it's all forgotten and everybody loves maddon, as they should. >> he's doing a double exhale this morning. >> what's it mean to the city of chicago, bob? >> well, it means more than can possibly be expressed, as it would have meant to cleveland because they had waited since after all, in chicago the blackhawks had won, the bears had won, michael jordan's bulls won six times. cleveland had been without one in any sport since '64 until the cavs won in the spring. then they were looking to double down in the fall. so it would have meant a lot there. but when it comes to just baseball in chicago, even though the white sox won in 2005, the cubs are the team, the identity of chicago baseball.
7:09 am
think it's very important that wrigley field was built in 1914. it wasn't called wrigley field until a bit later. but wrigley field is the place where all this played out. just like fenway park still exists, so all the ghosts were there when they finally broke through in 2004, all the ghosts, all the history, all of it resides at wrigley field. had they moved to a new ballpark in the interim, even had it been 108 years, i don't think it would have quite the texture and the drama. wrigley field still stands. people gathered at wrigley field even when the game was being played in cleveland to experience it communely. >> we wanted a good world series. we got a great one. bob costas, appreciate it. we'll have more on the cubs' first title in 108 years, including al's big night at the ballpark in just a little while. >> lucky guy. we are jealous. all right. now let's get to politics. five days to go. during a rally in florida, donald trump urged himself to avoid getting sidetracked in the
7:10 am
point. >> quinnipiac university out with a new poll of likely voters in four swing states that could decide this election. clinton leads by just two points in florida and north carolina. she's up by six points in pennsylvania. but take a look at ohio, where trump has moved ahead with a three-point advantage. >> it is a family affair on the trail today. both candidates will be in north carolina this afternoon. melania trump heads to pennsylvania for a rare campaign appearance. clinton heads to nevada. chelsea clinton rallies voters in wisconsin. >> we have reports from both campaigns, starting with donald trump's. nbc national correspondent peter alexander down in miami. peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, matt and savannah. good morning to you. this morning, campaign aides to donald trump tell me they're very encouraged by new polling that shows a tightening race in some critical states like colorado and new hampshire. but perhaps the biggest news these days from the trump campaign is just how little news
7:11 am
encouraging himself out loud not to veer off message. >> get out and vote! thank you. >> reporter: celebrating new momentum in some of the latest polls, donald trump giving himself a pep talk here in must-win florida. >> stay on point, donald. stay on point. no side tracks, donald. nice and easy. >> reporter: trump in the home stretch of the campaign, more disciplined, ticking off a checklist of attacks on hillary clinton, dismissing her as unhinged. >> she's the candidate of we are the movement of the future. >> reporter: the crowd reacting on cue -- >> lock her up! lock her up! >> reporter: just days to go, both campaigns making sure they touch all the bases, airing competing ads last night during game seven of the world series. >> hillary clinton won't change washington. >> because all it takes is one wrong move. >> reporter: as trump tries to carve a path to 270 electoral votes, kellyanne conway is defending her boss with this
7:12 am
>> he's been very nasty about people i care about. >> let me tell you what's nasty. nasty is hillary clinton else endless -- >> no, no, no. >> he's the first republican to ever elevate a woman to this position as presidential campaign manager. >> yeah, he loves women, right. come on. >> he's very respectful. >> reporter: this as trump himself targets the media, incluing nbc's katy tur, for missing what he calls a movement. >> they're not reporting it. you're not reporting it, katy. but there's something happening, katy. >> reporter: wite trump's trying out a new strategy to motivate his biggest backers. >> the polls are all saying we're going to win in florida. don't believe it. don't believe it. get out there and vote. pretend we're slightly behind. pretend we're down. we're down. pretend, right? >> reporter: nearly 16 months after launching his insurgent campaign, trump's also appearing wistful. for the outspoken candidate, a rare moment of reflection. >> it's been the honor of my life to share this journey with you.
7:13 am
who i did not really get to share this with. and that's my mother and my father. i know they're up there watching. i just felt that nice breeze. it's hot. but i just felt that nice breeze. so they're helping us out. >> reporter: and one note about the intersection of politics and baseball. in the last eight world series since 1924 decided in a game seven during a presidential election year, every time the republican candidate won. every time the national league team won, the democrats won. so if you believe in baseball is any predictor, this morning it's advantage clinton. matt and savannah, back to you. >> doing the whole thing with the baseball. >> you need a chalkboard. all right, peter. thank you. >> we've been talking about hillary clinton. she's doing everything she can to turn out voters in the key battlegrounds. andrea mitchell is in one of
7:14 am
>> reporter: good morning. hillary clinton in battleground north carolina today campaigning later today with bernie sanders in this park in a state that was leaning democratic but nbc is now calling a toss-up. she is in the closing days crisscrossing the country, trying to shore up support in the face of tightening polls. hillary clinton witnessing her hometown cubs win the world series, spending 45 minutes backstage after her campaign rally in arizona watching the game on an ipad with aides, afterwards rejoicing and holding up the cubs' victory flag, later tweeting, they did it, 108 years later and the drought is finally over. way to make history, cubs. the celebration coming after clinton drew one of her biggest crowds at that arizona rally. her first stop there this campaign. >> hello, arizona! >> reporter: it's a long shot for her, trying to become the first democrat to win the state
7:15 am
have a real chance to turn this state blue again. >> reporter: with polls in arizona showing her locked in a tight race with donald trump, clinton is targeting the state's growing bloc of latino voters. >> about half the people he wants to deport, they've paid more in federal taxes than donald trump has paid! >> reporter: earlier in nevada, snapchatting a at a hair braiding salon and trying to fire up her volunteers. >> if we turn out our voters, we win! >> reporter: clinton rallying las vegas supporters with a new closing argument. imagining donald trump in the oval office. >> our girls would grow up with a president who proudly ranks women by their looks, who brags about doing things to them without their consent. >> reporter: with her own high unfavorable ratings a big challenge, clinton clearly worried some voters will just stay home. >> i think some people are
7:16 am
sit this one out. you know, i can't really make up my mind. i don't know who's really going to help me and my family. >> reporter: so she's leaning heavily on a network of democrats, in addition to bernie sanders today, her husband bill clinton, running mate tim kaine, and vice president joe biden all fanning out across the country. and her star surrogate, president obama, set to rally democrats in florida today. clinton now trying to avoid talking about hece time, president obama taking a swipe at his fbi director james comey. >> there is a norm that, you know, when there are investigations, you don't operate on innuendo. we don't operate on incomplete information. we don't operate on leaks. we operate based on concrete decisions that are made. >> reporter: and a challenge for democrats here in north carolina this year is that
7:17 am
what it was four years ago. and that is partly because of legal obstacles, partly because hillary clinton is just not barack obama. not as popular as, of course, the president. matt and savannah? >> all right. andrea mitchell in north carolina. thank you. >> i think we've got a shot now, hopefully. this is in chicago. this is at wrigley field, where the cubs are arriving home early this morning, getting off the bus. as you can see, there are fans. jason heyward there. we're still waiting to find out when the big celebration is going to be. it's just going to continue, i'm sure. >> i still see huge smiles. they've probably been going since the middle of the night. >> so al is a long-time cleveland indians fan. first of all, al, sorry about that. and sorry that you also traveled
7:18 am
[ cheers and applause ] [ inaudible ] >> reporter: the most famous fans, bill murray got into the musical feel of things during one of the innings. that mojo going. and despite that torrential downpour, the spirit, the festivities continued on the field. in fact, i got into the locker room last night. the big hero, mvp ben zobrist. i caught up with him after the game. we're going to show you that conversation coming up in the next half hour. i also met up with his lovely wife juliana and their baby. i was actually down by the

low key affair, an invitation only event at a midtown hotel. a source told "the washington post" trump is "superstitious" and doesn't want to jinx himself with lavish party plans. let's get back to that thrilling game seven in the world series. the cubs needed extra innings to beat the cleveland indians 8-7 to win the championship. al was there. after the game, he talked to some players but he also made his way to chicago overnight. he's at harry caray's restaurant. al, goo i know in my lifetime, i have never witnessed anything like that. and not only what happened on the field, but after the game off the feel, it was amazing. and even the weather couldn't dampen the enthusiasm. >> the cubs win the world series! it's over! >> hey, congratulations. >> i saw your wife.
7:33 am
see your at-bat. >> she said she -- she said she tried to get you to become a cub fan the other day. >> well, now i am. i mean this is great. how great does this feel? >> oh, it is unbelievable. i can't believe i get to be a part of this. it's been 108 years. this is my first year as a chicago cub, so, man, i'm spoiled to be a part of this. >> when you do something like this and -- do you have any idea how much this means to the city and the history? couple days when we have the parade. i know that there's generations of people that have waited for this moment. families, fans all across the nation, all across the world, cub fans have waited for this moment. we finally were able to give it to them. so, man, thank you to our fans. thank you for the opportunity the cubs have given me to be here. i'm just blessed, man. >> you feel like the weather had something to do with it? a little rain delay help? >> we did have a pleating.

7:35 am
friday, if the parade in fact happens on that day, it is going to be as close to a national holiday in chicago as anything you could possibly see. >> all right, al, i'm glad you got to experience it, even if it didn't turn out the way you hoped, i'm glad you were there at the game. >> thanks, guys. carson's over in the orange room with reaction to game seven. carson. >> well, this says it right here. cover of this morning's new york post -- "game of the century." cubs and their fans as you just saw with al. perhaps no bigger just going nuts. then after the game he was taking some champagne to the face here from theo ebbstein. that's the cubs' president, rather. in an honest moment, cubs' first baseman anthony rizzo having this conversation kind of candidly caught online.

they have to appear to be. we forget to cry. we forget to be emotional, to show vulnerability, to show pain. >> for a long time there's been this gender stereotype that men are meant to be really tough and strong and brave. when i dropped out of high school, it was because i was mentally unwell. >> at 17 i was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a severe form. in battling that disease, people forgot that i was a human >> i know how hard it is to talk about this sort of stuff. i know how much of a barrier it can be, particularly for men, whether it might be seen as being weak or not manly enough or whatever. >> we need to talk about this. we need to be honest about it. >> it's one of those things that's kept under wraps so much. it's so much more common than we realize. and we just hide it. >> let's change the conversation. let's make it a point for humankind to recognize that the brain is an organ just like
8:34 am
>> every single person on the planet can be a part of making mental health mainstream. >> whatever you're going through, whatever pain you're experiencing, you matter most. it's okay to be in pain. you're human. >> it doesn't make you a bad person. it doesn't make you less of a person. it makes you someone who has a condition or a situation that can be helped. so, please get the help. you'll thank yourself for it later. >> here with more on men and mental health, dr. mehmet oz and dr. steven snyder, professor of psychiatry at mt. sinai. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> we're talking about embarrassment again. tuesday we talked about men embarrassed to talk about testicular cancer and now it's mental health. >> the most profound thing is our mental health. and it's not just about lives, it's about quality of life. we spent a lot of time in our
8:35 am
about why men aren't talking about their minds. >> nearly half of the men, 46% say they're embarrassed to share their feelings about mental health, and this is significant. 49% admit that they're feeling more depressed than they let on. >> yeah. >> you know, men don't ask for directions when they're lost, either. this is a male quality of not wanting to get help. go it alone. be brave. it's a known male quality, but sometimes it can get in your way. >> so when you come across men, what do you tell them? how do they get past this hu? have to man up. we even have that phrase. if you really want to man up, protect your family. the most important thing a man needs to do is be there for the people in their life and it's important to let people know, if they're not healthy, they won't walk their daughter down the aisle and be there for their family if they need help. >> does depression manifest differently in men than women? >> well, there are more commonalities than differences. men tend to have an irritability thing perhaps more than women.
8:36 am
men want to go off by themselves. they want to do that anyway, but they want to go off by themselves because they're irritable, they don't feel good and often do self-destructive habits like drinking or drug use because it feels good. >> this subject is geared towards men, but it also should be geared toward the women in our lives. how do women play a role in this to try to help guys become more communicative about things like this? >> first of all, use sports metaphors. pass the ball to me, honey. i'm here, too. you don't have to do it all yourself. in this survey, we did it together and found profound things out about men and they're very different from women. women want to be there for help. the man wants to protect, but the woman wants to be there for you as well. women want to help, and if you say that to a man, they'll step down a bit and say, all right, i'll let it happen. otherwise, they'll deny. >> day after day. >> sports metaphors are good,
8:37 am
men are mentally geared for battle. you don't want to show weakness, they'll attack. so respect the fact that a man has a battlefield mentality and work with it that way. >> doctors, thank you both. >> thank you, matt. >> appreciate it. important information. if you have questions about them, they're about to take part in a live chat on our "today health" facebook page, and you can find more information at up next, reversing alzheimer's disease. maria shriver on an experimental program showing remarkable prom

alzheimer's in a new and groundbreaking way? >> we spent 27 years in the laboratory looking at what are the features that drive the underlying problem? >> reporter: he believes alzheimer's is caused by dozens of imbalances in the body that his program is designed to fix. his daily protocol includes eating a mediterranean diet high in vegetables and good fats, regular cardio exercise, fasting at least 12ou getting at least eight hours of sleep, and a regimen of supplements to address each patient's deficiencies. >> you are saying that all of these things done together reverses cognitive impairment and/or alzheimer's. >> yes. we see improvement time after time after time. >> reporter: in a small published study, bredesen found his program boosted cognitive functioning in 9 out of 10
8:42 am
so much so, some could even return to work. did the bredesen program save your brain? >> yeah. >> reporter: this study patient asked us to hide his identity because he is a working physician diagnosed with early onset alzheimer's. when his memory started to slip, he began the bredesen program. a year in, he says his symptoms disappeared. his cognitive test scores back to normal. today, you're still practicing. >> very much so. i'm j now. >> reporter: bredesen says his program only works for patients in early stages of the disease. do you consider yourself the alzheimer's cure? >> no, of course not. the longest we have the person on a program is four and a half years. we've not had a single example yet out of the hundreds in which someone has gone on the program, gotten better, stayed on the program, and then gotten worse. >> reporter: he's now partnered with the cleveland clinic for a
8:43 am
critics say until more research is done, the verdict is still out. but patients like deborah say they're living proof it works. >> i would stand on my rooftop and shout it out to people. >> i really felt like my life was saved. >> well, the alzheimer's association says it is encouraged by dr. bredesen's initial results, but they do say further study is needed. dozens of doctors across the country have now been trained to administer his program which you ca next year he's going to publish a book about his program. lot of people excited about this. other doctors saying wait, don't rush. this is not a cure. and also in this space it is all now about intervention and prevention. get to people early on. >> the good news is it can't hurt, right? it can only help. >> but people talking a lot about fat in the diet.

9:05 am
world series gear. but they kept going from locker room to locker room as the -- as the lead changed. back, forth, back, forth. it was so close. it was incredible. then of course, chicago finally pulls it out and i got to tell you, even though the game was played in cleveland, i think half the people in the stands were from chicago. >> hey! >> you see that final out and the crowd could goes nuts. game was over, and the -- look at bill murray. he's just -- he was there. he has been such a long-time cubs fan. dancing in the stands, having a great time. and then of course theo pstein, bill and theo were in the clubhouse afterwards celebrating with champagne. it was spectacular. i got to go in to the locker room.

i mean this was his first year as a chicago cub. and, boy, what a first year to have. it was -- in fact, i ran into his wife, julianna. all of a sudden she -- during the rain delay, guys, they had all come out away from the field. he goes out, she runs back in. she runs in to me. she says i got to get back out there. i've got to see him. he is at bat. he hits that game-winning hit and the rest is it was perhaps -- >> yeah! woo! >> like i said, make no bones about it, i'm a cleveland indians fan. i lived in cleveland for five years. everybody that took part in that game had something to be proud of. whatever team won, nobody was going to complain about it. but, look. if you're going to lose to a team, you want to lose to the chicago cubs. a team with destiny. it was a spectacular night. >> woo!
