Was it me? Or did the Chicago media go overboard on Ron Santo’s irregular heartbeat story? They led every promo with Santo footage from 1969 and said “The beloved Chicago Cub and broadcaster…..has……a irregular heartbeat. Don’t tell me they weren’t milking it, hoping that we would see the footage and hear the cadence and think he had passed. Which is exactly what I did. And then my fave part is going to Wrigley to talk to Cubs fans. That’s like talking to a puppy who got into a bowl of Old Style. They walk funny and yelp and piss on your lawn.
