Great guy...Great player...Great in the booth... Dam, the Cubs lost a Great one today!

I'm going to harbor some discontent for the HOF, for a long time... Ronnie will of course make the HOF posthumously, but he deserved to receive the honor while he was alive!

What a sad sad day this has been. I woke up to a text that told me he had passed overnight. My heart instantly ached. Not so much that he had passed, but that he never made it to the Hall of Fame, that he never saw his Cubs win the World Series, and he never saw the cure found for Juvenile Diabetes, all of which he got so close to have happen.

I listened to Pat and Ron almost every game, as it was so much more accessible to me when i was at work than TV. He was a part of many Cub fan's daily routines for close to 200 days a year, when you add Spring Training. And after listening to the all day long tributes on WGN, I realized I wasn't the only one who felt as if I had lost a member of my own family. If you get a chance, go to http://www.wgnradio.com and listen to all of the many tributes to Ron. Girardi, Gracey, Pat, Len, Bob, and many many other guests. There is also a video of many fans who gathered outside WGN radio studios and at 2:10 this afternoon, they did a group "Heel Click" in honor of Ron.

Also should be noted that the visitation will be open to the public, Thursday at 4pm at the HOLY NAME CATHEDRAL 735 N STATE STREET. Funeral will be Friday morning at 10am, with limited public seating, but will be carried on WGN radio, WGN TV (I'm not sure if just Chicago area, or WGN America), and wgnradio.com

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Ron's memory to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation - Illinois chapter at the below address, by visiting www.jdrfillinois.org and clicking on "Donate Now" or by calling 312-670-0313.

JDRF Illinois Chapter
11 S. LaSalle Street
Suite 1800
Chicago, IL
60603-1344

There is a suggestion out there to donate $10 in honor of $10.

It also should be noted that WGN radio will be airing the Kerry Wood 20k game on Saturday afternoon from 1pm-3pm, and the Carlos Zambrano No hitter on Sunday afternoon from 1pm-3pm. Priceless games to listen to.

Listening to Cubs games on the local affiliate 1650 The Fan (KCNZ-AM in Cedar Falls) will not be the same ever again. No one that WGN or the Cubs bring in to fill Ron's spot next to Pat will match Ron's passion, energy and humor (unintentional and intentional) that This Ol' Cub displayed time after time on every broadcast. We'll all miss the guy. He will definately be in the Hall of Fame soon. If not voted in as a player by the Veterans' Committee or by the new committee being formed for players of his era, then he'll get the Ford C. Frick award. He's not considered this year, though, but he could be considered down the road.

It's sad but not that shocking to me. Do you realize he had not only diabetes but a heart problem and cancer ta boot.

I hope they go and get Mark Grace to take his place.
