Baseball News! Surprise!

 That's right, actual sports reportage.   Today a statue of third baseman Ron Santo will be unveiled at Wrigley Field.   That's the Cubs' stadium.   The Chicago Cubs.   Santo was not only a respected ball player, he was a beloved commentator for 20 years.   Santo provided color commentary which included many emotional reactions to what was happening on the field.    Which endeared him to Cubs lovers - Ron Santo was a huge Cubs fan, no attempt at impartiality.   That's what the play-by-play guy is for.  Santo's statue will join three others at Wrigley Field, those of:  Billy Williams, Ernie Banks, and Harry Caray.  Ron Santo died December 02, 2010.
