The Weekend Desk Report

We here at Beachwood Nation have a nice little history of Cubs ditties - just go here and check out the left rail - but in recent years we just couldn't muster the will to sing anymore. Well, just when we thought we were out of it, they've pulled us back in again. Our musical director Tom Latourette has come up with another gem. "It's been a long time since the muse has hit me," Tom says. "Playoff baseball will do that!"

Indeed. Enjoy. Share. And another way to visit our musical/video archive is to visit our YouTube page.
