Steve Goodman would be so happy!

Cubs win! Cubs win!

If only Steve Goodman had lived to see it.

In my not-so-humble opinion, Steve Goodman was one of the finest singer-songwriters ever to walk the earth. He was a Chicago boy and a huge Cubs fan. Tragically, he died of leukemia at the age of 36 in 1984, just four days before the Cubs won the National League Eastern Division title, sending them to the playoffs for the first time since 1945.

It’s nice to imagine that there’s a heaven with Steve Goodman in it, and that he’s got a huge grin on his face as he declares, “Damn, I’m gonna have to write some new lyrics for that song!”
