The Cubs won an important baseball game tonight, but it feels more than a little empty. We are again reminded that there is so much more to life than this silly game that we all love. John was not only a unique voice in baseball, but in life itself. His humor, kindness, and charm were unparalleled. To say that I miss him already would be an understatement. His entire family is in the thoughts and prayers of his CubsDen family.
The future of this community is probably the least of everyone’s concerns at the moment, but we would like to inform you that we are going to take Sunday off in remembrance of John. All of us here know the special community that John has built, and that a period of reflection is needed. We will have more on Monday as we honor our fearless and eternal leader. So raise a glass or two in his honor in the mean time, and I look forward to the community sharing of all of our best John stories in the near future.
