Ron Santo BELONGS IN COOPERSTOWN!

Al,

Thank you for your tremendously inspiring and laudatory account of my favorite Cubs player of all time!  

Yes, I will ALWAYS acknowledge that Ernie IS Mr. Cub, but as one of our posts indicated, perhaps view Ron as Mr. Cub 2.

Well, I really would like to piggyback on Al's suggestion and aptly described tribute to Ron Santo: 'He's one of us!', 'He epitomizes BleedCubbieBlue!'  YES! and Dennis Franz in 'This Old Cub' agreed!  

Let's give Ron the absolutely deserved and well-earned distinction of being FOREVER referred to as "Mr. BleedCubbieBlue" !!!

I vowed in one of the HOF petitions that I will NEVER step foot into the Hall of Fame UNTIL AND UNLESS Ron Santo is elected - and I have always treasured and cherished making that trip.  But without Ron's inclusion in Cooperstown, in my eyes and heart, the Hall will remain an empty hollow structure: a mere shadow of a building that represents THE injustice foisted by an utter lack of convictions and class among those members who disgracefully have prevented Ron's inclusion.

Let's hope and pray that Ron will FINALLY get to really  re-celebrate his birthday later this month with the honor that has unfathomably and undeservedly alluded him for all too many agonizing years!  Even Mike Schmidt has reconsidered his narrow view of who deserves HOF status!  Perhaps 2007 will be the end of the drought for everything Cubs!

Ron Santo represents the very brick and mortar which will allow the HOF to once again shine proudly as the hallowed place it was chartered to be!

Ron Santo BELONGS IN COOPERSTOWN!
