First, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped produce this Cubs album! There have been some great ideas and I am almost halfway to my goal!

To share a few of the works in progress with you, there has been an order for the Kinks' "Lola" to be parodied with Chris Coghlan's nickname "Cobra"; original lyrics for a parody of 'Let's Go All the Way" by Sly Fox; and a song about, and I quote, "Idea for song: Harry Caray has passed into the great beyond, but his spirit lives on in the Budweiser taps at Wrigley Field. Now, every time a Cubs Fan orders a Bud, they are effectively drinking the ghost of Harry Caray which, over time, begins to impact the playing of The Cubs in a positive way. This is the year that the Harry Caray Bud (and Bud Light) ghost pee will take The Cubs to the World Series®!"

If you want to be a part of the fun...here's how...

And enjoy "The Ballad of Jake Arrieta", a song parody produced by Dawn Strand, about the best pitcher in the Major League Baseball this year!
