Alexandra Burk, Hallelujia

I just saw a cover of this song and had to track down the original. It's tremendous. Sure, most post 1990 music is lame, but if you don't follow new music, you miss some great stuff.

Oops. It turns out I was led astray by a bogus claim that Alexandra Burke was the original. This is actually a song from 1984 by Leonard Cohen. Figures it was pre-1990.

A solid Cubs fan all his life, Stanley Gudeman will spend his 91st
birthday watching his childhood team play in the World Series, hoping
for the first Cubs championship of his lifetime.

Stan was born in northern Indiana, Nov 2, 1925. He grew up on a farm,
where he had to milk cows, plow with a team of horses and catch every
Cubs game he could on his family's radio set. They did not have a
school baseball team, so Stan learned baseball on his own, catching,
throwing, and hitting.

Stan joined the army in 1945. While in basic training at Camp Cowder. Missouri. Stan was selected to play for the post baseball team. He had never played an actual game of baseball before.

While on the team, Stan played against some major and minor leaguers including batting practice against Tommy Bridges (Detroit Tigers) who would pitch against the Cubs in the 1945 World Series. Stan was shipped to the Philippines where he got up at 4:00 am to listen to the 1945 World Series on short wave radio.

Stan spends all summer watching baseball on TV. He's one of the most
die-hard sports fans I have ever seen, and he has remained faithful to
the Cubs through 80 years of the hard times.

So Cubs, please give my Dad a birthday present. Win!
