ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

It's almost kismet, the coincidence of the Chicago Cubs going to the world series for the first time in over seven decades and the fourth printing of the penultimate book about legendary songwriter (and Cubs fan) Steve Goodman by West Seattle's Clay Eals.

Goodman, who wrote such enduring songs as "City of New Orleans" and "You Never Even Call Me By Name", and who died in 1984 also wrote "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request" and the anthem of the Cubs "Go Cubs Go" heard at every game.

Eals 778 page book has been getting more attention again from other media as the Cubs rise toward the pinnacle of baseball success took place. He was interviewed on NPR for a segment about Goodman you can hear here.
