Toasting Slats After 10 Years
Paul Sullivan pens a nice piece about his old boss, Mike Royko. Hard to believe that it's been 10 years since Mike headed for the Billy Goat Tavern in the sky.
There was an interesting part of Paul's article. It had to do with Royko's reaction tot he 1985 edition of the Cubs:
Royko ... really thought '85 would be the Cubs year.
So he purchased a season-ticket package with the intent on getting postseason tickets in October. Naturally, the entire Cubs pitching staff went down and Royko had little interest in going out to Wrigley to watch a fourth-place team.
I always knew that man was smart.
I am taking a client to the game tonight. He's never been to an MLB baseball game as he hails from Sao Paolo. We'll have a toast to Royko at some point.
And we'll probably be as pissed at this team as he would have been.
