I did a similar post here about Ernie Banks where I noted in the first sentence that I wasn't looking at starting a series. But I'm bored and finals are not what I want to be focused on at the moment.
Al also noted in the Banks post that there are links on the sidebar of the 100 best players in Cubs history. I like those links but I love personal stories too. So that's what I'm looking for. I'm not old enough to remember Ryno or his time in a Cubs jersey and wasn't alive for his best years at Wrigley. So I'm hoping for some insight. I know about the stats and the trophies and the hall of fame. I'm looking for the nostalgia, the "I remember when..." type of stories. They can be ones that happened at the ball park or if you met him outside of the Friendly Confines. But on a gloomy day like today in Chicago, I was thinking I could get some stories that would warm my heart. So please, enlighten me on the man known as Ryno.
