CUBS WIN! HOLY COW!


Ladies and gentlemen, the Chicago Cubs are the champions of the National League Central Division. Woohoo!!!

Playoffs at Wrigley Field. Ah, bliss.

Steve Goodman - Go Cubs Go

Baseball season’s underway
Well you better get ready for a brand new day
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.

They’re singing …
Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today
Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.

They got the power, they got the speed
To be the best in the National League
Well this is the year and the Cubs are real
So come on down to Wrigley Field.

We’re singing now …
Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today
Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.

Baseball time is here again
You can catch it all on WGN
So stamp your feet and clap your hands
Chicago Cubs got the greatest fans.

You’re singing now …
Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today
Go, Cubs, go
Go, Cubs, go
Hey, Chicago, what do you say
The Cubs are gonna win today.

Good to see your celebratory post that quotes the lyrics of "Go, Cubs, Go" by Steve Goodman. He often doesn't get his due. You might be interested in an eight-year project of mine that has come to fruition -- an 800-page biography of Goodman published in May, "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music." The book delves deeply into the origin of "Go, Cubs, Go" and "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request." The Cubs making the postseason begs the question of whether they will make "Dying Cub Fan" inaccurate this year. Please check my Internet site below for more info on the book. Just trying to spread the word. Feel free to do the same!

Sure as hell hope so. I tell ya, the first couple months I was as down on the Cubbies as anybody. Amazing turnaround, even just to win the Comedy Central. Woo!

Any ideas for where to go in Atlanta to watch the playoff games with other cubs fans? Any bars jump to mind?

Not a clue, anon. And if such a thing could be found in Athens, I'd be really, really happy.

Yeeeeeeah Cubbies!!! I think I was pissing off everyone at the bar I was at on Friday night as I was persistently urging the Brewers to LOSE. But hey - worth it.
