Rip ron santo, #10, and broadcaster for the cubs

I know some people hate the cubs, but this should be a guy EVERYONE likes. 9 time all-star, 5 time golden glove winner, lost BOTH legs to diabetes, but always had a smile on his face. Now that's a sports hero kids should look up to, not the majority of scumbags that are out there now.

RIP # 10 ron santo!!!!

He was fun to listen to during cubs games on the radio as I would drive.

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

as a juvenile diabetic I give him major league kudos for accomplishing what he did in an era that made it very difficult to manage diabetes.
I can see why some didn't care for him, and he certainly wasnt the best in his broadcasting career but there is no disputing his love and loyalty as a Cubs fan.

I wonder who's on the list as his replacement

Rest in Peace my boyhood hero. I will miss you.

He said the coolest thing when they retired his #10. That it was his Hall of Fame moment. Hopefully they will finally induct him now.

Randal: [to Dante] Would you grow up!
Becky: [to Dante] OK, I'm only telling you this because we're friends, but sometimes, in the heat of the moment, it's forgivable to go ass-to-mouth.
Randal: [chuckling] Ha! I knew it.
