It has been learned today that my favorite Cub ever has decided to hang up his cleats.
This is one of those events where words suddenly seem an insufficient form of expression. What can we say besides thank you, Kerry Wood and we love you. Not much.
SO, from the bottom of my heart I do say thanks, Mr. Wood. It has been a privilege cheering you on all these years. My admiration, respect and gratitude will be yours always. Best wishes in the years ahead… I have a funny feeling we haven’t seen the last of you.
