My kind of town

Greetings from Chicago…wish you were here!

Photo taken Saturday in downtown Chicago of me with the famous Ronnie Woo Woo, the ultimate Cubs fan!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Ronnie “Woo Woo” Wickers (born October 31, 1941) is a longtime Chicago Cubs fan and local celebrity in the Chicago area. He is known to Wrigley Field visitors for his idiosyncratic cheers at baseball games, generally punctuated with an exclamatory “Woo!” (e.g., “Cubs, woo! Cubs, woo! Big-Z, woo! Zambrano, woo! Cubs, woo!”) Longtime Cubs announcer Harry Caray dubbed Wickers “Leather Lungs” for his ability to shout for hours at a time.
I can’t believe the luck I had.  Only 48 hours in Chicago, searching for fun and off the wall blog ideas and lone behold, across the street near Michigan Avenue is none other than the infamous Ronnie Woo Woo!  My friend was driving and instantly spotted his personalized Cubs uniform within the crowd, rolled down her window and yelled “Woo Woo” and there he was, cutting across four lanes of traffic over to our car.  We both received hugs as well as a personal invitation to his upcoming 70th Birthday party nearby Wrigley Field.  What a man!!!!  What a Chicago icon as well!
Go Cubs!
