October 27th, 2009. The day the Ricketts family finally actually for real took ownership of the Chicago Cubs. I could not be happier for our team to be doing something that feels so correct, wonderful, and necessary.
Of course, it's also the day we can say goodbye to Sam Zell who I'm sure, as far as history goes, will be remembered right up there with ohhhh, rats at Wrigley.
So it's Tom as chairman, brothers Pete, Todd, and sister Laura on the board along with one chair reserved for a Tribune guy. I won't bring up a certain Chicago football team family ownership that includes less than desirable siblings, I just hope the whole fam is as big a bunch of Cub fans as Tom.
Everyplace I went to read about this happening, people are giving advice to the newest Major League Baseball team owner.
How's about this: Tom, keep being a fan.
That's about all I can ask.
