Our Heroes Wear Pinstripes

Chicago CubsOn what could be the day my beloved Chicago Cubs clinch their second consecutive division championship for the first time in 100 years, I found it quite appropriate to read about Eddie Vedder's new song.

Chicago radio stations and sports bars have begun spinning "All the Way," a Chicago Cubs-themed ditty written by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder at the request of Cubs legend Ernie Banks.
True champions need an anthem (Super Bowl Shuffle anyone?) and Eddie's musical ode could be and hopefully is a nice omen for what could be one of the most memorable Octobers of this die-hard fan's life.
According to Pearl Jam's Web site, "All the Way" will be available for download in the "next few days," and may also be sold on CD and "souvenir 45 singles."
Listen to it here.

The magic number is 2! Go Cubs!

UPDATE: Ok, so it's not happening today - but it will happen. Oh yes, it will.
