I think there was an owner with the last name of Taft. First name was something with a C, if I can remember back to high school when I wrote a history of the Cubs for one of my classes, Chris? Charles?

No, (and I don't want to "name-drop") but Tom is my 84th cousin, 13 times removed. No big deal, I put my pants on the same way everyone else does...
