Happy Birthday Harry Caray!

Happy Birthday Harry Caray!

I have a funny Harry Caray story to share.

Many years ago, just after Harry had left as the White Sox broadcaster but hadn't signed with the Cubs yet, my friends and I met Harry and his wife.

A large group of us were on Rush Street on a weekend. We had a mix of Cubs and White Sox fans there, including some members of the Sox Supporters. (Are they still around?)

We weren't bar-hopping, just seeing what was to be seen there...and we spotted Harry and his wife.

All the Cub fan girls in the group said Hi to him and kissed him.
A week later he signed with the Cubs as their announcer. Imagine that!
