First, let me give a “shout” out to the “Cub” Fans that thought that my “Grandfather” didn’t indoctrinate me enough to be a Cubs Fan… despite that strong Cubs background and upbringing!
Thanks for still” “allowing” me to be a White Sox Fanatic and stay in the “Big Boys Club another year!…. (Whatever)
I just wanted to share that I was proud yesterday to see Governor Pat Quinn, and Mayor Emanuel at the watch party yesterday! What a beautiful setting and site…. I truly met some terrific people who were nice to be around!
Jackie Robinson West… you did a superb job… and in my book you taught, some of the professionals how to handle it, with grace and honor…. I saw fight in these young guys yesterday to the finish… They have given the world a run for their money! And for all that say with discipline and hardworking doesn’t pay off… I salute all of the “men” and women… who shaped such an outstanding team! I was more than impress… I was taken back with the attitude and the level of respect my guys had for the game! Chicago can be more than proud!
JACKIE ROBINSON WEST… NEVER FAIL BUT MET THE CHALLENGE!
