Folk Singer Steve Goodman Born On This Day 1948/ “A Dying Cub Fan’s Last Request”

 

Folksinger Steve Goodman was born on this day in 1948. He died way to young at the age of 36 of leukemia in 1984His most famous song was the great “The City of New Orleans” which was a big hit by Arlo Guthrie.  I always loved his “A Dying Cub Fan’s Last Request” 28 years after Steve’s death the Cubs have still not returned to the World Series since “The year we dropped the bomb on Japan” and have not won a World Series since 1908. {President Ronaldus Magnus wasn’t even born then}

    • one of the funniest t-shirts i’ve seen- someone wearing a cub shirt that said.. Chicago Cubs 1908 World Champions! I have one that reads Boston Red Sox 1918 World Champions..but they ruined that by winning a couple recently!!.. Cub fans seem happy-that series must have been special indeed..
