Cubs Baseball Friday

First, the good news:
Chicago radio stations and sports bars have begun spinning "All the Way," a Cubs-themed ditty written by Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder at the request of Cubs legend Ernie Banks, reports. The track features lines like "Our heroes wear pinstripes / pinstripes in blue / give us a chance to feel like heroes too." It was recorded last month during Cubs fan Vedder's solo concert at Auditorium Theatre, according to The song will be available for downloading in the next few days, according to Pearl Jam's Web site, and may also be sold on CD and "souvenir 45 singles."

Now, the bad news: In the second inning, the Cubbies are down 8-0 in the second. Yeah. I know. Looks like it ain't gonna be clinchin' day. Wonder if it'll ever be clinchin' day. If it does come, though, I hope it ain't Sunday, since I'll be down at the Linc with JJ watching the Birds paste the Stealers.
