There were none better than the likes of our own Jack Brickhouse and Harry Caray.From childhood through adulthood,they captured my heart and mind... Author:Chris Papas Whether you look through my Irish/Italian eyes,or the passion in the Greek eyes of Chris, we are simply proud Chicago fans. This terrific book covers fifty years of that fan hood. The anticipation,the thrills, and yes the heartaches are all in there.The book is filled with fun facts, statistics, and personal recollections. These stories create an interesting mix for the sports fan and trivia buff... Foreward By:Tom Dreesen This book captures the essence of what it means to be a true Chicago sports fan.
