With the Chicago Cubs two wins (or Milwaukee Brewers losses) away from clinching a playoff spot, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder has been penned a song in honor of the baseball team. “All The Way,” which Vedder performed last month at a solo show in Chicago, has already popped up in Chicago sports bars and radio stations, with a download coming “in the next few days,” according to the Pearl Jam site. The song features lyrics like “Our heroes wear pinstripes / pinstripes in blue / give us a chance to feel like heroes too” and “We are one with the Cubs / with the Cubs we’re in love / we are not fair-weather but foul-weather fans.” We’re disappointed Vedder couldn’t find a rhyme for “Kosuke Fukudome.” Cubs great Ernie Banks reportedly asked Vedder to write the song as the Cubbies attempt to win their first World Series since 1908. Meanwhile, us Mets fans still have songs like this.
