"THESE RICKETTS LOVE SOSA" In my Chief Keef voice!
My current love may be DJing, but my first love will always be the Chicago Cubs. I grew up watching the Cubs. Rushing home after middle school to hear Jack Brickhouse, Milo Hamilton, Lou Boudreau, Steve Stone, and of course, Harry Caray.
Harry Caray made it easier watching Jerome Walton get caught stealing a base, Jay Johnston strike out looking, Thad Bosely misjudge a fly ball, Bump Wills over slide second base, Manny Trillo’s Afro jiggle back peddling to miss an infield fly, or Corey Patterson strike out swinging with the bases loaded and no outs.
But right now if you ask me who my favorite Chicago Cubs Baseball players are I will immediately say, “Bill Madlock, Ryne Sandberg, Shawon Dunston, Andre Dawson, and SAMMY SOSA.
Ryno brought dependability, Bill Madlock brought the golden bat, Shawon Dunston brought hustle, Andrew Dawson brought the MVP and Sammy Sosa made the Cubs a billion dollar franchise.
Do you think Glen Allen Hill was the reason the bleacher fans put the piece sign in the air after tapping their chest twice? Do you think Matt Murton saying baseball has been, “Berry Berry Good to Me” has the same ring to it? Do you think, “Jose Guzman, Jose Guzman and Greg Maddux is Greg Maddux” kept the turn styles’ a buzzin?
Sammy Sosa was the only reason people watched the Cubs for a long time. To not invite, reach out, or even send a pigeon out on the ball clubs behalf seems like sour grapes to me.
Oh yeah, well Sammy Sosa quit on the team in 2004!
WELL…THE TEAM QUIT ON THE TEAM FOR 100 YEARS!
Mark Mcgwire is in baseball right now! Barry Bonds helped the current San Francisco Giant teammates with batting practice!
Even Pete Rose has been honored by the Cincinnati Reds and the Philadelphia Phillies organizations!
BUT THE CHICAGO CUBS ARE TOO GOOD TO BRING SAMMY SOSA BACK?
Bring back Sammy Sosa to get his due from the Chicago Cubs organization and the fans.
Just don’t send Manny Alexander to pick him up. ☺
Just my thoughts man…
