Cubs Fact:

Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa won the 1998 National League MVP Award after engaging in a home run race with Mark McGwire of the Cardinals that captivated the nation.

WhatEVER. That 1998 season was one of the most fun I've ever experienced. I was living in an old concrete apple cellar outside of Springfield, IL, working construction, listening to the games on the radio every day. It was marvelous.

I was living in Lincoln Park, my girlfriend at the time was living right on Addison in a brownstone about a block down from Wrigley. I made roughly 25 games that summer. I was at the Sept 13 game against the Brewers on the First base line with Sammy 61 and 62 I beleive it was. Place was electric...I was drunk.

The thing I remember most about the '98 season isn't all the homeruns. It's Brant freaking Brown dropping flyballs and almost costing the team a playoff birth.

This just made me remember one of my favorite players of all-time: Neifi Perez!!! I can still remember Ronny going nuts on WGN when the news came in that Neifi Perez (of all the unlikely people in baseball) had kept the Cubs alive with a walkoff homer for the Rockies...
And that's a bad miss...
