‘Mr. Cub’ Celebrates 80th Birthday On Ernie Banks Day

This little impromptu post is for all my Cubs fans. Today is Ernie Banks 80th Birthday!!!!  Ernie Banks truly "bleeds" Cubbie Blue..  You see the next best thing to food for me is sports.  I guess I can thank my Dad for that.  He loved sports of any kind, and followed them all.  In my next life, I would either want to be Giada or Erin Andrews.  (I don't think that they have any 60 yr old women sports casters now) 

Pitchers and Catchers report for Spring Training and the first Spring Training game is Feb. 27th.  that's less than a month away!  It will be Spring, before we know it.  Hope "Springs" eternal.  So follow this link to see a great article about "Mr. Cub", Ernie Banks! Now I think that I'll go make one of Giada's recipe's:)

  1. Baseball is totally my sport. I grew up with a love for all things baseball so I'm with you on this one! Happy Birthday Ernie Banks - take me out to the ball game!

  2. I'm a huuuuuuuuuge Cubbie fan! :) I used to live right near Wrigley Field - during season, I was part of the fun every day for almost 5 years!!

  3. Kate- My son & his fiancee live 2 blocks east of Wrigley Field, so they are definitely part of the fun! They go to Murphy's Bleachers all of the time!
