Ernie Banks - Mr Cubs

Post by Sue Short on Sat Jan 24, 2015 10:29 pm


Ernie Banks, Mr Cubs has passed. He was an incredible player and was known on and
off the field for his kindness and good sportsmanship. He was 83 and I'm sure when he hit
heaven he was saying "Let's Play' and orginizing a pick up game.

A glass to one of the best players in the game.

Amen! Maybe he and Ron Santo are discussing a winning season for the Cubs this year. I wonder if they have any swing with the guy who decides. Smile

Have you heard that ESPN picks this year's Cubs to be in the World Series? Perhaps Ernie is a quick worker. Smile

The Cubs make the Series, then the Pope should canonize him.

Missed this thread - probably because I was sick when he passed.  I had the pleasure of meeting Ernie back in the day.  He seemed like a great guy. He and Ronnie, along with Harry and Jack Brickhouse are all together again. Maybe they can make something happen!

FINGERS CROSSED! (My husband is a huge Cubs fan, and I like them too, although the Orioles have my heart. Can't abide the designated hitter though.)
