Dept. of Let's Play Two

Ernie Banks, 1931-2015

Ernie Banks, "Mr. Cub," the man who always wanted to play two, now has an eternal seat behind home base from which to watch the Chicago Cubs win the World Series. They owe him that.

I feel like I've entered the Twilight Zone. About 15 minutes before reading your post and learning of Ernie's death., I watched and listened to this YouTube video of Steve Goodman overlooking Wrigley Field, singing "A Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request." Yep. Complete with "Hey, Ernie, let's play two."

Oh, man - I was actually looking for that video, before deciding to go with the one I featured. Perhaps I should add this one. Hey Ernie, let's play two, indeed. Sigh.
