Woo Woo Where Did You Go Go?

Lots of sports teams have super fans. I can remember Crazy George at all of the Oakland A's games when I grew up. He was a freak. The Cubs have their own super fan who takes it to the next level... he lives it.

Ronnie Woo Woo is know by Cubs fans and Chicagoans as the ultimate Cubs' fan. He wears the full uniform that matches the uniform the players wear the same day. If the Cubs are on the road then Ronnie Woo Woo is decked out in his away uniform. Since I work in the Wrigleyville neighborhood I see Ronnie Woo Woo quite often and he always remarks on my White Sox hat letting me know I am on the wrong side of town. He really is a unique guy, and extremely kindhearted. I loves the Cubs, and more importantly he loves baseball.

So this year the Cubs have been pretty good... they won the Central Division and are now in the playoffs (struggling). But one thing has been missing... Ronnie Woo Woo. I have not seen him at all. Not once this baseball season. I usually see Ronnie Woo Woo walking down Southport or Waveland a few times per month - but this year... zero. The last time I saw Ronnie Woo Woo was last winter on the Clark bus and he was in plain clothes. It was a very strange site.

Where did you go Ronnie Woo Woo?

Oh no! I can't even imagine Woo Woo in plainclothes. I hope he is found. :(

2 Things.

1. I heard Ronny used to beg for tickets. Not food. Cubs tickets. THAT is a fan.

2. Before I lived in this now legendary apartment, my buddies had Ronny in here. They have the pictures to prove it.
