I turn on WGN this evening, hoping the Sox were on, and what do I find but a tribute to Santo. I check the TV guide on the internet, and it's a 2 hour movie called "This Old Cub". I flip back once in a while, and all it is is Santo in the hall; Santo in the hall.
This is weird. He must have paid for it is all I can figure.

Ah yes... "THIS OLD CUB" has been discussed quite a bit in the forums... the threads are mighty entertaining reading!

He didn't have to pay for it. His son made it.

He didn't have to pay for it. His son made it. And funded it, I gather (not that it probably required much funding)? And I presume only WGN airs it.
What an obnoxious movie. I see now it was made 2 years ago...I'm sure it has gotten some mention on here.

The DVD is also available at many fine retail outlets in the Chicagoland area (including one near you!!!).

What a crummy video store. All they have are videos about Ron Santo!

I'd never seen the show "Arli$$" starring Robert Wuhl, but I caught the 2nd half of an episode on ESPN Classic the other night. Arliss appeals to the media to finally vote into the HOF this old-timer named "Ronnie" (Arliss's first client), a third baseman who had played with Ernie Banks (made a cameo), and "never had outstanding stats, but came to ballpark each day and did his job." According to Arliss, the annual snubbing of "Ronnie" was a great injustice. I was expecting to find out that "Ronnie" was also a diabetic and double amputee.

The fictional part came when the writers relented and voted this Ronnie (who in the end turns out to be a wife-beating scumbag) into the Hall, while the "real" Ronny continues to sit by the phone...
