Clark & Addison

Episode XIX, “SHOP TALK AMONG THE DEPARTED”

AN IMPROBABLE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS HAS LED TO A MIDSEASON COLLAPSE OF THE CHICAGO CUBS. DISHEARTENED FANS STILL COME TO THE RESCUE AT THE CONFINES OF WRIGLEY FIELD. NOW THAT LOU PINIELLA HAS MADE HIS INGLORIOUS EXIT, THE CLUB AND ITS FANS YEARN TO KNOW WHO THE NEXT LEADER MAY BE. WEAGHMAN’S PARK HAS SEEN BUSINESS GROW DESPITE THE LOSSES, AS FANS HAVE STARTED EATING AND DRINKING WHILE ENJOYING THE AMBIANCE OF WRIGLEY. THIS CLARK AND ADDISON CORNER WISCONSIN BASED BEER AND FOOD ESTABLISHMENT AS WELL AS 20 SOMETHING HANGOUT, HAS SEEN DROVES OF FANS COMING ON GAME AND NON GAME DAYS. THE WORD IS OUT THAT HAVING A LEINENKUGEL BEER AND A ZUERCHER CHEESE PLATE OR SANDWICH IS THE NEXT BEST THING TO HEAVEN. JOSH, THE 20 SOMETHING ACADEMIC MBA/LAW SUPERSTAR AND ARDENT CUB SUPPORTER HAS TAKEN A LOA FROM WEAGHMAN’S PARK TO LOOK AT REAL JOBS IN BUSINESS OR LAW ON CHICAGO’S GOLD COAST - SUCCUMBING TO THE DEMANDS OF HIS MOTHER. KERI, THE SOCIAL WORKER RESIDENT SPORTS TOMBOY, HAS ALSO GIVEN UP HOPE OF EVER CORNERING JOSH. AMIDST ALL THE ANGUISH OVER A TOUGH SEASON, THE OWNER OF WEAGHMAN’S PARK HAS APPEARED OUT OF NOWHERE - AND IS PERFORMING JOSH’S JOB. THE OWNER CALLS HIMSELF WEAGHMAN, AND CLAIMS HE IS FROM ROCKFORD. MOST EXPERIENCED PATRONS KNOW THAT WEAGHMAN MYSTERIOUSLY CAME TO WEAGHMAN’S PARK PERIODICALLY AND THEN SURREPTITIOUSLY DISAPPEARED FOR WEEKS. WEAGHMAN, MANY FEEL, WAS A GHOST OF WRIGLEY HIMSELF - AND THE TWO WERE STILL FEUDING OVER THE NAME OF WRIGLEY FIELD. FOLLOW ALONG AS WRIGLEY’S APPARENT GHOST AND WEAGHMAN HIMSELF CARRY ON A DIALOGUE OF CUB AND CHICAGO SPORTS TALK HISTORY AMIDST THE CUB FANS GATHERED AT THE CORNER OF CLARK AND ADDISON.

WEAGHMAN UNBELIEVABLE SEASON. IT’S ALMOST FITTING THAT WE DIDN’T HAVE TO ENDURE WHAT WE DID IN 69. WRIGLEY’S GHOST YES SIR. I KNOW YOU WERE NOT AROUND, BUT I CERTAINLY WAS. IT WAS INDESCRIBABLE. WEAGHMAN NO YOU WERE NOT HERE WRIGLEY - YOU DIED IN 1932 - REMEMBER ? AT BEST YOU ARE A GHOST. WRIGLEY’S GHOST WELL WEAGHMAN, YOU DIED IN 1938 SO THERE IS NO WAY YOU COULD HAVE SEEN THE 1969 COLLAPSE EITHER. 2


WEAGHMAN ARE WE THE SAME PERSON? THERE IS ONLY ONE OF US NOW WORKING HERE AT WEAGHMAN’S PARK. MAYBE WE ARE BOTH GHOSTS? WRIGLEY’S GHOST NO I THINK YOU ARE REAL - PEOPLE ARE RELATING TO YOU AS IF THEY HAVE SEEN YOU BEFORE. I’M JUST OUT THERE FOLLOWING ALONG ALL THESE YEARS. WEAGHMAN OK I GUESS I’M REAL - THESE DROVES OF FANS ARE CALLING ME WEAGHMAN. THEY ARE ASKING WHERE ARE JOSH AND KERI? THIS IS A 20 SOMETHING HANGOUT. WRIGLEY’S GHOST WE ESSENTIALLY ARE ONE. REMEMBER WHEN WE ALONG WITH A FEW OTHERS RISKED OUR NECKS IN BUYING THE CUBS IN 1915. WE WERE PARTNERS IN A STRONG BUSINESS CORPORATION. WEAGHMAN I WELL REMEMBER ALL OF IT. THE PROBLEM IS THAT I DIDN’T FOLLOW YOUR INSTRUCTIONS. HOW SO?

WRIGLEY’S GHOST

WEAGHMAN WELL REMEMBER WHEN I HAD THAT KKK RALLY, THE AFFAIRS, THE NOT TENDING TO MY FAST FOOD BUSINESS, AND GOD KNOWS WHAT ELSE I DID WRONG? WRIGLEY’S GHOST YES WEAGHMAN - YOU NEVER LISTENED. I TOLD YOU BEFORE YOU BOUGHT INTO THE FEDERAL LEAGUE THAT IT WAS A MISTAKE - COME ON - THE CHICAGO WHALES? GIVE ME A BREAK. WEAGHMAN YOU WENT ON AND BECAME A LEGEND. I MEAN HOUSES ALL OVER ARIZONA, LAKE GENEVA, AND CATALINA ISLAND. THE FIELD IS NOW NAMED AFTER YOU - EVEN THOUGH YOU DON’T OWN IT. YOU BECAME A LEGEND ALL FROM 5 CENT CHEWING GUM STICKS. I WOUND UP POOR WITH A NEW WIFE IN ST. LOUIS. REMEMBER THEY WOULD NOT LET ME BUY INTO THE CARDINALS. WRIGLEY’S GHOST WEAGHMAN - YOU DID ONE THING WELL.

WEAGHMAN WHAT COULD THAT BE? I DIDN’T SELL THE WHALES - THE FEDERAL LEAGUE ONLY LASTED ONE YEAR. OH MAYBE YOU ARE THINKING WE 3


BECAME THE CUBS OUT OF THE CHICAGO WHITE STOCKINGS. TAFT SOLD US THAT TEAM FOR $500,000, AND.............

WRIGLEY’S GHOST YES YOU SOLD PART OF THE CUBS TO ME AND I THANK YOU. WRIGLEY FIELD PROBABLY SHOULD STILL BE CALLED WEAGHMAN’S PARK. WEAGHMAN NO IT WAS YOUR DEAL WITH THE NAME CHANGE IN 1926 TO WRIGLEY FIELD. I WAS LONG GONE BY THEN AND YOU’D BECOME THE CHEWING GUM MAGNATE OF CHICAGO WHO OWNED WRIGLEY. I WAS TOO DUMB TO STAY. WRIGLEY’S GHOST I WAS FORTUNATE. AS I TOLD MY FAMILY THAT EVEN THOUGH OUR GUM WAS ONLY 5 CENTS, IT WAS FIVE CENTS YOU COULDN’T AFFORD TO FORGET. WEAGHMAN WELL MY FOOD EMPIRE DISSOLVED AND I WAS SO STUPID BACK THEN - HOSTING KKK MEETING EVEN AT MY HOUSE IN LAKE ZURICH, CHASING OTHER WOMEN, AND THEN REMARRYING. MY GOD I WAS BAD. WRIGLEY’S GHOST BUT YOU’VE REDEEMED YOURSELF GRANDLY WITH THIS CLARK AND ADDISON ESTABLISHMENT. IT IS NOT WRIGLEY FIELD!

WEAGHMAN

WRIGLEY’S GHOST BUT IT HAS BECOME SO WILDLY POPULAR NOW. HERE IS WHERE THE 20 SOMETHINGS GATHER, MEET, GET ENGAGED, AND MARRY. WEAGHMAN NOT ALL - BUT AGREED I’VE SEEN SOME REALLY GOOD KIDS IN HERE. THERE REALLY ARE SOLID PEOPLE COMING IN HERE FOR FUN. WRIGLEY’S GHOST AND YOU ARE A FOOD GUY - ALWAYS WELL AHEAD OF YOUR TIME - 40 YEARS AHEAD OF MCDONALDS - YOU FORMERLY SERVED 35,000 PEOPLE A DAY IN CHICAGO WITH YOUR 15 DINERS. YOU WERE A FOOD MAGNATE AND CASH COW. WEAGHMAN BUT I BECAME A SKUNK. NEED I SAY MORE? I ONLY REALLY WANTED TO BRING A CHAMPIONSHIP TO YOUR PARK. WRIGLEY’S GHOST NO IT’S YOUR PARK ORIGINALLY.

WEAGHMAN THE CUBS WON THE SERIES IN 1908 AT WEST SIDE PARK. NEVER HAD A SERIES VICTORY HERE – LAST PLAYED IN ONE AT WRIGLEY IN 1945. WRIGLEY’S GHOST I WILL NOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THAT RIGHT FIELD FENCE OF 216 FEET - ONE FOOT MORE THAN THE LEAGUE MINIMUM OF 215 FEET AT WEST SIDE PARK. THAT WAS A REAL YANKEES MOVE. WEAGHMAN MAYBE WE HAVE NOT WON SINCE 1908 BECAUSE WE ARE ACTUALLY BOTH GHOSTS – HAUNTING THE CUBS. WRIGLEY’S GHOST I KNOW I AM BECAUSE NO ONE CAN SEE ME. FANS SEE YOU, BUT ALSO HEAR ME. CUB FANS ARE AMUSED AND LAUGHING AT US WHILE YOU ARE TALKING TO YOURSELF IT APPEARS. LITTLE DO THEY KNOW I’M HERE TOO. WEAGHMAN THIS IS CRAZY ENOUGH TO GET THE BOOT OUT OF BERNIE’S. WRIGLEY’S GHOST DO YOU BELIEVE THE NICE PLACES THEY HAVE TO GO HERE NOW - I MEAN TUSCANY’S - WE COULDN’T EVER AFFORD THAT WITH 5 CENTS CHEWING GUM! WEAGHMAN OH I THINK NOT - I’VE HEARD ABOUT YOUR HOUSE UP IN WISCONSIN NEAR MAYTAG POINT IN LAKE GENEVA. WRIGLEY’S GHOST IT’S NICE - WE USED IT - KEPT OUR FAMILY TOGETHER. WEAGHMAN MY LIFE FOLDED LIKE THE FEDERAL LEAGUE. I NEVER LISTENED TO YOU WRIGLEY. WRIGLEY’S GHOST DON’T GIVE UP. THIS WISCONSIN FOOD IDEA OF BRATS, ZUERCHER CHEESE, AND LEINENKUGEL BEER - WHAT AN IDEA. WISCONSIN HAS ALWAYS BEEN AHEAD OF US ON FOOD. WEAGHMAN YES I WAS THINKING LIKE I DID WHEN WE BOUGHT THE CUBS - OR OLD CHICAGO WHITE STOCKINGS. NOT THE WHITE SOX?

WEAGHMAN NO THEY WERE DOWN SOUTH WITH THE BIG NEW STADIUM COMISKEY PARK IN 1910 - REMEMBER OUR COMPETITION? WRIGLEY’S GHOST YES VIVIDLY. THEY STILL ARE THE COMPETITION AROUND CHICAGO. IN FACT PRETTY MUCH THEY HAVE BEAT US TO A PULP THE PAST FEW YEARS. BUT ALL OF US NEARLY VOMIT EVEN THINKING OF THE SOX – WHAT A DESPICABLE TEAM. WEAGHMAN LIKE ABOUT 100 YEARS OF SOUTHSIDE GARBAGE WITH NO GARBAGE SERVICE AVAILABLE. WRIGLEY’S GHOST SAD - BUT WRIGLEY FIELD, THE CUBS, AND THIS WHOLE AREA OF LAKEVIEW.... WEAGHMAN NO IT’S CALLED WRIGLEYVILLE - YOU HAVE EVERYTHING NAMED AFTER YOU...... WRIGLEY’S GHOST OK WRIGLEYVILLE - WELL IT IS A REAL SWELL PLACE NOW. WEAGHMAN YES THE CORNER OF CLARK AND ADDISON IS THE FOCAL POINT OF CHICAGO NOW. WRIGLEY’S GHOST I MAY BE IN SECOND PLACE NOW THAT THE MOST POPULAR PLACE OF WEAGHMAN’S PARK IS NOW SECOND TO NONE. YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE.

WEAGHMAN

WRIGLEY’S GHOST WHAT DO YOU MEAN? I COULD NEVER DREAM OF AN IDEA LIKE THIS. WEAGHMAN YOU KNEW THOSE START UP ZUERCHERS’ BACK IN THE EARLY 1900S. NICE CATHOLIC PEOPLE WHO ALSO HAD ROOTS IN GREEN COUNTY WISCONSIN. WRIGLEY’S GHOST I SEE YOU ARE GETTING CHEESE FROM GREEN COUNTY THESE DAYS.

WEAGHMAN UNTIL WE CAN GET MORE FROM CHICAGO, THE FOLKS UP NORTH - BORDER AREA - HAVE BEEN SUPPLYING MUENSTER AND SWISS CHEESE PLATES AND SANDWICHES BY THE TON. WRIGLEY’S GHOST AND YOU CAN’T KEEP UP WITH THE DEMAND? WEAGHMAN RIGHT - THESE SWISS APPRENTICES UP THERE ARE WORKING 24/7 TO FILL OUR DEMAND. THEY ARE EVEN BRINGING OVER SAUSAGE BRATS WHEN SHEBOYGAN CANNOT HANDLE THE LOAD, AND HUBER BEER. NO WAY!

WRIGLEY’S GHOST

WEAGHMAN WHAT AM I TO DO WHEN I RUN OUT OF STOCK LEINIE’S OR THE IN SEASON STUFF LIKE OCTOBERFEST IS OUT? I HAVE NICE PROBLEMS. WRIGLEY’S GHOST SO YOU NOW OWN AND MANAGE THIS RESTAURANT - SPORTS BAR DATING CLUB - WHATEVER IT IS 20 SOMETHING HANGOUT? WEAGHMAN YES, THIS IS MY LIFE WHEN I’M NOT IN ROCKFORD. WRIGLEY’S GHOST SO WEAGHMAN WHY DID YOU MOVE TO ROCKFORD? WEAGHMAN BECAUSE IT’S CLOSE TO GREEN COUNTY, AND IF YOU’VE EVER HAD A FRESH HUBER BEER AND A CHEESE SANDWICH FROM BAUMGARTNER’S - YOU’LL NEVER EAT ANYTHING ELSE. WRIGLEY’S GHOST SO THAT’S WHY YOU ARE SO.......... WEAGHMAN YES.....BUT I’M STARTING TO DIET, EXERCISE, AND I MAY DATE AGAIN. WRIGLEY’S GHOST SO YOU SEE ALL THESE 20 SOMETHINGS GET DATES, HAVE FUN, PLAN THEIR LIVES, AND YOU GET IDEAS? WEAGHMAN NO I WANT TO START OVER. I DONATE TO THE BLACK COLLEGE FUNDS, GO TO MASS DAILY, AND SUPPORT MANY OTHER CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS AROUND CHICAGO. I’M GIVING BACK MY YEARS OF STUPIDITY. I DIDN’T LISTEN TO YOU WRIGLEY. 7


WRIGLEY’S GHOST GOOD FOR YOU. I DID A FEW CHARITABLE THINGS MYSELF - GAVE CATALINA ISLAND TO A FOUNDATION. IT BECAME A LOVER’S ISLAND SO TO SPEAK AND OH MY GOD..... WEAGHMAN IT WAS YOUR FAULT NATALIE WOOD DIED NEAR THERE. DID YOU KNOW SHE COULDN’T SWIM? WRIGLEY’S GHOST THAT JUST HAPPENED AND WE’LL NEVER FIGURE IT OUT. NOWADAYS THEY HAVE THESE YOUNG PEOPLE CALLED TREE HUGGERS WHO HANGOUT IN CATALINA. WEAGHMAN NO THE TERM IS NOW GREEN. WE EVEN HAVE GREEN PEOPLE OR YOUR TREE HUGGERS IN HERE ALSO. BUT THEY ARE NOT TROUBLE. WE RECYCLE THE LEINE’S BEER BOTTLES, WASTE LITTLE, AND BEER AND CHEESE IS ALL NATURAL. WRIGLEY’S GHOST WEAGHMAN I GUESS YOU WERE FAIRLY SMART AFTER ALL - YOU’VE COME ALONG WAY FROM THE CHICAGO WHALES AND WEST SIDE PARK. WEAGHMAN BUT THE FIELD IS IN YOUR NAME - EVEN THOUGH I BUILT IT. $250,000 WITH SEATING FOR 15,000. WRIGLEY’S GHOST WELL THEY CALL COMISKEY US CELLULAR FOR ALL THOSE PEOPLE THAT THINK THEY NEED TO TEXT OR MAKE A PHONE CALL EVERY THREE MINUTES. LIFE WAS FAR SIMPLER BACK THEN. WEAGHMAN DO YOU REALIZE THIS ENTIRE PLACE IS STARING AT US OR I GUESS ME SINCE THEY ONLY SEE ME? WRIGLEY’S GHOST AND THEY THINK YOU ARE ACTUALLY TALKING TO YOURSELF. WHAT DO THESE FANS KNOW OTHER THAN A CENTURY OF FUTILITY? WEAGHMAN I THINK THEY ACTUALLY CAN ACCEPT ME AS A GHOST BECAUSE I’M PALPABLE - YOU ARE NOT - THOUGH WHEN I’VE COME DOWN FROM ROCKFORD I’VE BEEN ASKED IF I WAS ACTUALLY WRIGLEY’S GHOST.

WRIGLEY’S GHOST SO WHAT DO YOU DO THEN?

8


WEAGHMAN I JUST LAUGH AND WALK AWAY. THEY HAVE TRIED TO FOLLOW ME BUT I HAVE THIS POOF ESCAPE TO ROCKFORD WITH NO ADDRESS – S0 FOLKS DON’T BOTHER ME. WRIGLEY’S GHOST YOU ARE FINALLY WILDLY SUCCESSFUL. WEAGHMAN I GUESS. BUT I’D STILL TAKE THE DAYS BACK BEFORE I BEGAN SOUR THINKING. I THOUGHT I WAS COOL AND CULTURALLY ADVANCED WITH CRAZY IDEAS. I NOW REALIZE I WAS NOT. I SHOULD HAVE STAYED YOUR PARTNER AND WHO KNOWS......... WRIGLEY’S GHOST THE FIELD WOULD HAVE BEEN THE FRIENDLY CONFINES OF WEAGHMAN - WRIGLEY FIELD. HEY HEY - THAT HAS A NICE RING. WEAGHMAN AGAIN YOU WERE A GOOD PERSON AND I WAS A SKUNK. I’M REDEEMING MYSELF THOUGH – AS YOU CAN SEE RIGHT HERE AT CLARK AND ADDISON. WRIGLEY’S GHOST BACK TO 1969. WHAT DO YOU THINK ACTUALLY HAPPENED? WEAGHMAN ON AUGUST 19 THE CUBS WERE ACTUALLY 9 AND A HALF AHEAD OF THE METS. AT ONE TIME WE WERE 75 AND 44. THEN……… WRIGLEY’S GHOST SO WHAT DO YOU THINK FLAT OUT HAPPENED? I HAVE MY THEORIES! WEAGHMAN I THINK IT WAS THAT STARGELL HOMER THAT WENT INTO SHEFFIELD AVENUE. THAT TIED UP THE GAME ON A 2 - 2 COUNT. PITTSBURGH WENT ON TO WIN 7 - 5 IN EXTRA INNINGS. THE CUBS LOOKED DEMORALIZED IN EARLY SEPTEMBER. THE METS WERE WINNING LIKE GANG BUSTERS. NOTHING COULD STOP THEM. LONG WINNING STREAKS. BUT IT WAS OURS TO LOSE. WRIGLEY’S GHOST I’M NOT CERTAIN. MANY WEIRD THINGS HAPPENED. THEY SAID LEO FALTERED. I DON’T KNOW ANYONE MORE THAN LEO WHO WANTED TO WIN. THE CHEMISTRY WAS NOT GOOD. WEAGHMAN ARE YOU REFERRING TO THAT SANTO PLAY?

9


WRIGLEY’S GHOST YES, RON WAS NOT THERE WHEN SELMA MADE A PICKOFF ATTEMPT AT THIRD. THAT PLAY HAS BEEN DEBATED FOR YEARS. WHAT EVER HAPPENED BETWEEN THOSE TWO IS HISTORY - BUT I DO KNOW PHILLY WENT ON A BIG RALLY AFTER THAT PLAY WITH THE RUNNER SCORING FROM THAT WILD THROW. WEAGHMAN WE WENT ON A NICE 8 GAME LOSING STREAK WHILE THE METS WON 10 IN A ROW - NEVER LOOKING BACK. WRIGLEY’S GHOST RON YOUNG’S ERROR IN CENTER? WEAGHMAN IT’S HARD TO PINPOINT ONE EVENT. LOOK AT ALL THE KEY HITS WE COULD HAVE HAD AND DIDN’T PRODUCE, MANAGER DECISIONS THAT DIDN’T WORK, AND PITCHERS THAT FLAT OUT DIDN’T PITCH. WRIGLEY’S GHOST AND MOST PEOPLE THOUGHT WE WERE DEAD AND GONE. WEAGHMAN WE WERE IN THE CONVENTIONAL SENSE. I GUESS WE ALL LIVE ON IN A LEGACY OF SOME MAKING. OURS WAS JUST BASEBALL. WRIGLEY’S GHOST MOST PEOPLE FORGET THAT WE WERE IN SECOND THAT YEAR AT THE FINAL TALLY BY EIGHT GAMES. IT WASN’T EVEN CLOSE. WEAGHMAN AND THE METS WON THE SERIES. WITH SEAVER THEY WERE DAMN GOOD. WE JUST GOT BEAT BY A BETTER TEAM. WRIGLEY’S GHOST IN FACT FERGIE HAD A RECORD NUMBER OF STRIKEOUTS THAT YEAR. WEAGHMAN AND HUNDLEY, BECKERT, KESSINGER, SANTO, AND BANKS WERE ON THE ALL STAR TEAM. NOT BILLY WILLIAMS?

WRIGLEY’S GHOST

NO, IT WAS CLOSE THOUGH.

WEAGHMAN

WRIGLEY’S GHOST THESE FANS ARE ORDERING MORE AND MORE LEINE’S. AND NOW THEY ARE ASKING WHERE DO THE CUBS GO FROM HERE. THE PINI10


ELLA ERA IS OVER. GOD BLESS HIM AS NO ONE TRIED HARDER THAN LOU.

WEAGHMAN IT WILL BE A VERY DIFFICULT DECISION FOR THE CUBS BRASS AND RICKETTS HIMSELF. I LIKE THE INTERVIEWS AND BRINGING ALL THESE PEOPLE IN. WRIGLEY’S GHOST OBVIOUSLY SANDBERG IS THE FAN FAVORITE. GOING FROM PRINCIPAL FIELD IN DES MOINES TO WRIGLEY IS A BIG DEAL THOUGH. WEAGHMAN DO YOUR HOMEWORK. OUR PLAYERS NOW HAVE MORE MONEY THAN SHEIKS. WE OCCASIONALLY HIT IN KEY SITUATIONS. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO FIRE IN THESE GUYS. THE CUBS DON’T EVEN KNOW IF THEY ARE GOOD ANYMORE. WE ARE FIGHTING PITTSBURGH FOR THE CELLAR. THE PIRATES ARE LIKE AA BALL. WRIGLEY’S GHOST AND I KNOW SANDBERG IS WINNING LIKE CRAZY IN IOWA. HE’LL END UP IN ATLANTA OR ELSEWHERE NEXT SEASON IF RICKETTS DOESN’T HIRE HIM. WEAGHMAN AND TRYOUTS? THAT’S A NOVEL CONCEPT. YOU EARN YOUR PLAYING TIME BY PRACTICE, DEVOTION, AND TEAM SPIRIT. YOU ARE TRYING OUT DAILY WITH RYNO. NOT GRUMPING AT UMPS, FIGHTS IN THE DUGOUTS, OR WEASEL PLATE APPEARANCES. WRIGLEY’S GHOST NO DOUBT IF SANDBERG IS THE NEW FIELD MANAGER THINGS WILL CHANGE IN A MILLISECOND. AGAIN NO ONE WILL EVER FORGET A DAY IN INFAMY: JUNE 23 1984 - ONLY SEVEN RIBs, GAME TYING HOMER IN THE NINTH, AND A WINNER IN THE TENTH - 5 FOR 6. THAT’S A SEASON FOR SOME OF OUR PLAYERS NOW. WEAGHMAN I GUESS THERE COMES A TIME WHEN WE HAVE TO MAKE A MOVE. IT IS NOW. YES WE NEED TO HAVE A RETURN HOME TICKER TAPE PARADE IN WRIGLEYVILLE COMING FROM I-80. ONLY RYNO CAN SAVE THE CUBS. WRIGLEY’S GHOST THESE GUYS BACK HERE WANT MORE CUB PEP TALK, ORIGINAL LEINIE’S, AND A PLATE OF ZUERCHER’S ASSORTED SWISS. THE END - CLARK AND ADDISON XIX
