Only at Wrigley....

My friend Joe McDonald at NYSD posted an excerpt from my upcoming book, "...getting paid to watch" yesterday on his site. As its his site, he edits as he sees fit and can leave something out for various reasons. I can understand why he did. In this circumstance, the section I segwayed spoke to Chicago and Wrigley Field as it was the main scene of the action which took place. Find below that segway with the understanding I've sought to put the reader in the story. Enjoy.

A delightful character, known simply as "Ronnie", usually greeted ball clubs at Wrigley Field. Ronnie could always be counted on to salute each visiting club's bus with dueling middle fingers. His never ceasing, "Cubs, woo...Cubs,woo...Cubs,woo" could be heard as you went to use one of the urinals in the visiting clubhouse as vented windows faced the front of the stadium. Ronnie seemed to hold special affection for us, and once recruited a woman to flash our bus after a game. He and his accomplice then hopped on the L and met us on the way back to the hotel for a repeat performance.

That delightful character has a full name, you know. It's Ronnie Woo Woo.
