RIP Ron Santo
Though I did not now him personally, I respect his work ethic and love for the Cubbies. As one of my favorite players and former Cub great Andre Dawson said, "There was always a smile on his face. Being around the game, with his condition, is what just really made him happy. He loved the Cubs. He loved broadcasting. I just never really heard him complain. He was always smiling. Thank for the memories Ron." Yes, thanks. It's a shame the Cubbies couldn't muster a title in his lifetime, but there's always next year, right Ronny?
