    I BELIEVE!

    I think Steve Goodman said it best in these two songs:

    Go Cubs Go!

    and...

    by Steve Goodman (1983)

    By the shore's of old Lake Michigan
    Where the "hawk wind" blows so cold
    An old Cub fan lay dying
    In his midnight hour that tolled
    Round his bed, his friends had all gathered
    They knew his time was short
    And on his head they put this bright blue cap
    From his all-time favorite sport
    He told them, "Its late and its getting dark in here"
    And I know its time to go
    But before I leave the line-up
    Boys, there's just one thing I'd like to know

    Do they still play the blues in Chicago
    When baseball season rolls around
    When the snow melts away,
    Do the Cubbies still play
    In their ivy-covered burial ground
    When I was a boy they were my pride and joy
    But now they only bring fatigue
    To the home of the brave
    The land of the free
    And the doormat of the National League

    Told his friends "You know the law of averages says:
    Anything will happen that can"
    That's what it says
    "But the last time the Cubs won a National League pennant
    Was the year we dropped the bomb on Japan"
    The Cubs made me a criminal
    Sent me down a wayward path
    They stole my youth from me
    (that's the truth)
    I'd forsake my teachers
    To go sit in the bleachers
    In flagrant truancy

    and then one thing led to another
    and soon I'd discovered alcohol, gambling, dope
    football, hockey, lacrosse, tennis
    But what do you expect,
    When you raise up a young boy's hopes
    And then just crush 'em like so many paper beer cups.

    Year after year after year
    after year, after year, after year, after year, after year
    'Til those hopes are just so much popcorn
    for the pigeons beneath the 'L' tracks to eat
    He said, "You know I'll never see Wrigley Field, anymore before my eternal rest
    So if you have your pencils and your score cards ready,
    and I'll read you my last request
    He said, "Give me a double header funeral in Wrigley Field
    On some sunny weekend day (no lights)
    Have the organ play the "National Anthem"
    and then a little 'na, na, na, na, hey hey, hey, Goodbye'
    Make six bullpen pitchers, carry my coffin
    and six ground keepers clear my path
    Have the umpires bark me out at every base
    In all their holy wrath
    Its a beautiful day for a funeral, Hey Ernie lets play two!
    Somebody go get Jack Brickhouse to come back,
    and conduct just one more interview
    Have the Cubbies run right out into the middle of the field,
    Have Keith Moreland drop a routine fly
    Give everybody two bags of peanuts and a frosty malt
    And I'll be ready to die

    Build a big fire on home plate out of your Louisville Sluggers baseball bats,
    And toss my coffin in
    Let my ashes blow in a beautiful snow
    From the prevailing 30 mile an hour southwest wind
    When my last remains go flying over the left-field wall
    Will bid the bleacher bums adieu
    And I will come to my final resting place, out on Waveland Avenue

    The dying man's friends told him to cut it out
    They said stop it that's an awful shame
    He whispered, "Don't Cry, we'll meet by and by near the Heavenly Hall of Fame
    He said, "I've got season's tickets to watch the Angels now,
    So its just what I'm going to do
    He said, "but you the living, you're stuck here with the Cubs,
    So its me that feels sorry for you!"

    And he said, "Ahh Play, play that lonesome losers tune,
    That's the one I like the best"
    And he closed his eyes, and slipped away
    What we got is the Dying Cub Fan's Last Request
    And here it is

    Do they still play the blues in Chicago
    When baseball season rolls around
    When the snow melts away,
    Do the Cubbies still play
    In their ivy-covered burial ground
    When I was a boy they were my pride and joy
    But now they only bring fatigue
    To the home of the brave
    The land of the free
    And the doormat of the National League

    Tigers could make another run at it this year, but I really don't see an overly dominating team this year. But I guess if I would have to bet it could be the Red Sox.
