>I’m a Cardinal fan.  That doesn’t mean I’m heartless.  Not long ago, long-time Cubs player & announcer Ron Santo passed away.  Santo certainly deserves HOF consideration, but has still be passed on every year.  Below is a first-person account of a third-person conversation that I had with a friend of mine just a few months ago:

“So, we have to take the elevator down, and when the doors open, there’s Ron Santo standing there.  It was so cool.”

I don’t remember if those were the exact words of the conversation, but you get the idea – Ron Santo liked to ride the elevator… and he was pretty cool.

Rest in Peace, Ron.
