Chicago: February 28,2013. Tonight at Navy Pier the Bar with Harry Caray's name is saluting Harry's 99th Birthday. I thought about going and I decided I rather stay home and pay homage myself. It's hard for me to forget 25 years of roaming the Friendly Confines of Chicago's Wrigley Field. There has been many changes since Harry was traded to the St. Peter's All-Stars. I was one lucky baseball fan.
Once in a while, I got paid... but mostly not. The cost of a cheap seat has dramatically changed the complextion of the everyday fan... there are none! I really do not miss it... The ballpark no longer looks like the one my dad introduced me to back in 1945. For many years I equated my youth with them becaused they hardly changed in the first 40 years. But once the Cubs became owned by the Tribune Company,all that changed. And now the new owners has left little of ballpark I was weaned on. I have lost interest. For years I was convinced my father's promise made to me in 1945 when I was 8 years old, was going to eventually happen. I asked him to take me to the 1945 Cubs World Series, he felt I was too young and made me a PROMISE... he would take me the next time! Over the years, I and the Cubs came close to it... but be that as it was... it never happened. I believe that I have a Moses complex. I maybe able to see The Promised Land one day... but I'll never
get it to the PROMISED LAND. However, Harry made it fun to be a Cubs Fan along the way!
