The Cubs discourse community has many rituals to preserve. One of their most famous rituals is singing “Go Cubs Go,” at the conclusion of every Cubs home victory. When the final out of the last inning is recorded, or the winning run crosses home plate to seal a Cubs victory, “Go Cubs Go” is played throughout the stadium. 23 years ago, “die-hard” Cubs fan and musician Steve Goodman wrote and recorded what is now know as the Cubs “Anthem” in Wrigleyville. Players and fans stand up and sing along as the entire Cubs discourse community celebrates the Cub’s victory. As an avid fan of the Cubs, and a member of their much larger discourse community, I got Goosebumps the first time I participated in the “Go Cubs Go” at Wrigley.
