Today is opening day at Wrigley Field.
Do they still play the blues in Chicago when baseball season rolls around?
Still the best baseball song ever, performed here by the late, great Steve Goodman on a rooftop across from the friendly confines.
“A Dying Cub Fan’s Last Request,” Steve Goodman, from “Affordable Art,” 1984.
Goodman might have been that dying Cub fan. He had leukemia, and this was the last LP released before his death in September 1984.
And, yes, he did have some of his ashes scattered at Wrigley Field.
