This is my yearly tradition of posting the late great Steve Goodman's ode to the Chicago Cubs. Not sure who makes these slide shows of the cub players every year, but as they say hope springs eternal, and with the Cubs it sure seems like forever! 101 years since the Cubs have won a World Series, and 64 years since the Cubs have been in a world series! The Cubs and the blues go hand in hand, and the last two years have been painfull watching my beloved Cubs get to the playofffs only to get swept out in the first round. ARGH!!! At least on the positivie note the Cubs have played great the last two years to get to the playoffs. Plus Pat Hughes and Ron Santo are great on the radio.
