“By the shores of old Lake Michigan
Where the Hawk Wind blows so cold
An old Cub fan lay dying
In his midnight hour that tolled”
No Chicagoan is a stranger to the bitter “Hawk Wind” of Chicago, referenced in Steve Goodman’s 1983 song “A Dying Cub Fan’s Last Request”. Whether or not you’re a Cubs supporter, if you’re in The Windy City, you know the struggle. Embrace it, it’s about all you can do.
