I'll just fix it and see if you can guess what it was:

 

Can you name the three Hall of Fame players who have broadcast for the Cubs?

Yup, 2 down 1 to go.

 

He is a Cubs legend that played in your adolescent years.

 I want to say Hornsby might have announced part of a season - but I'm not sure.  I will go ahead and say Hornsby.  If that's right - what was the boner?  Was it a pre Santo induction question maybe?

Hornsby is right and yes, this calendar must have been made prior to his induction (It typically doesn't include the 2012 season for stats).

Joking about the wagon wheels aside, today would have actually been my Mom's 83rd birthday. She was completely awesome. Died in 1998 and asked for updates on Sammy's HR total on a daily basis - right up until the last day.

Great, way to make me feel like an ass.

 

Actually she isn't much older than my Mom. She turned 80 this year. I do have much older siblings though.

There's an actor/director named Peter Bonerz. Many will think I'm lying. They can check IMDb.com.
