Steve Goodman Day Announced As The Chicago Sun-Times Runs "Go Cubs Go" Article

Across the great state of Illinois, Lt. Gov. Quinn declared Steve Goodman Day will be celebrated this Friday, Oct. 5th. A Ceremony will be held at the Blue Room (15th Floor) located at the James R. Thompson Center in Chicago. The ceremony will begin at 1:30 PM and guests will include Minnette Goodman (Steve's Mother), WGN Radio host Roy Leonard and many others. We love Illinois, but in our opinion, Friday should be NATIONAL / INTERNATIONAL Steve Goodman Day. Anyone want to organize that for us?

Also, Dave Hoekstra, our favorite Chicago journalist, wrote a nice piece about Steve and "Go Cubs Go" in today's edition of the Sun-Times. Click here to read the article.
