Synopsis: This brand new release, The Cubs Book of Rap, is unlike any sports book you have ever read. A 70-year-long Chicago Cub fan pens entertaining "rap" verses to capture the fun and excitement of each of the incredible final 49 Major League-best Cub wins of 2015, including the post season.  When the Cubs started on their exciting run at the end of July, the author decided to share his enthusiasm with his grandsons who exhibited signs of waning interest in the Cubs ever since the White Sox got hot 10-years ago.  In an effort to rekindle their interest and have something exciting in common with them, he began sending them emails after each Cub win with two or three-line game highlights. All were affectionately signed,  Love, Papa Bud.  Before long, these were turning into four-line raps, evolving into six, seven or more full verses. Responses began to come from the grandsons. It was working. That is how "The Cubs Book of Rap" was born. This grandfather was penning rap - Cubs rap.               Here are some excerpts from a few games:                                            Hail, Hail                                        Cubs Prevail                                                      Cubs were cruising in the ninth,                                  with a five to one lead                           when the Cardinals scored three                            and in my pants I nearly peed                                                 Then a leaping, backhand stop                                and a neat shuffle throw                             Addison Russell and the Cubs                                  had defeated their foe                                                                Cubs Win Wildcard!!!                                      Two Go Yard                                                                 For the Pittsburgh Pirates                                  that's all she wrote                             Could they have inherited                                 the Cubs Billy Goat?                                                                                       Cubbies Beat Cardinals 6-3                      Put it Up on the Grand Marquee!!!                                                                   Two safety squeezes                                highlighted inning two                         Is this the Cubs I'm watching?                             Might be time for a brew                                                            No ball left the infield                       yet we scored three for our team                                Don't wake me now                              I think this is a dream                                     Cubs Win Series Final 6-4                        Cardinals Swept Out the Door                                                          Cubs came from behind                                    to beat St. Louis                         when those Red Birds thought                                  they'd stick it to us                         Kyle Schwarber in the seventh                            put the icing on the cake -                            hit one over the scoreboard                           I heard said - "into the lake"                                                         This I know for sure                            That curse so long carried -                             the curse of the billy goat                              is now dead and buried!
