Cubs Con In Haiku: Day 1


Not so surprising
Fans gave biggest ovation
To Andre Dawson

Some boos for Hendry
But the Ricketts family
Got a nice welcome

But no Ron Santo
A bit under the weather
Hope he gets well soon

Highlight video?
Nice, but I recall last year's
Was more exciting

That wasn't a shock, of course, since for the first time in three years, the season ended with a title of any sort. Even the convention logo is less inspiring without the word "Champion" in it.  

New Hall of Famer Andre Dawson was obviously the fans' favorite.  If he had any doubt of his preference for a HOF cap, he knows that the fans here would be ecstatic to see him in Cubbie Blue.
