Ron Santo, Dead at 70

I woke up to the news that Ron Santo has died at 70, and it made me cry. How could you not love Ronny? He was an amazing man with an indomitable spirit in the face of so many challenges including the amputation of both of his legs to diabetes. And he loved those Cubbies like no one else.
It's a very sad day for Cubs fans and Chicago in general. He should have made it into the hall of fame while he was still alive.
It's a sad day in Chicago.
