"Go Cubs Go" piece to air on NBC's The Today Show

Tomorrow or Thursday (sorry we don't have the exact day), there will be a nice piece by our good friend Mike Leonard airing on The Today Show about the now classic Steve Goodman baseball song, "Go Cubs Go". Given the play of the Chicago Cubs this season (best record in the NL), coupled with the fact that it has been exactly 100 years since the team last won a World Series, there is much reason for optimism that this may actually be the year that they win it all (fingers crossed) and we couldn't be happier to be even a very small part of it. The Today Show airs on NBC every morning at 7:00 AM CST, so make sure that you catch it either Wednesday or Thursday on NBC.

Also, if you want to show your Cubs (or Steve Goodman) pride, make sure that you pick up the new "Baseball Singles EP" that we have just put together and are offering exclusively to our customers on Musicfansdirect.com. The disc will feature "Go Cubs Go" along with "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request", "When The Cubs Go Marching In" and "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and is available for pre-sale now. Go get it today, and "Go Cubs Go"!

Steve Goodman, and the Surprising Story of "Go, Cubs, Go"

There was a nice article that ran in the Huffington Post the other day about the unlikely beginnings Steve Goodman's baseball classic, "Go Cubs Go". Originally written in 1984 as a jingle for WGN in Chicago, the song sort of slid into obscurity until last year. Now, as the Cubs close in on their second NL Central division title in a row, the song, and the expectations for this team, are bigger than ever. Here is to a great rest of the baseball season. It should be a good one..."Go Cubs Go"!
