No knock on the present Cubs radio color man, whoever he is, but I miss Ron Santo—and I'm not even a Cubs fan. Summer isn't the same without him. It used to be worth tuning in near the end of a game, especially when the Cubs were struggling the way they have this season, just to hear Santo's disbelieving reactions as his team botched another one: "Oh, gee." "Oh, man." "Golly." "Can you believe it?" He wore his heart on the sleeve of his Cubs jersey, which was funny but also endearing.
