Hype: Ryne Sandberg profile in the Chicago Sports Review

When I was a kid, I had a deck of baseball cards that I'd shuffle and lay out in endless permutations of All-Star lineups. (Yes, those cards would be worth a Japanese import car now if I hadn't dog-eared every one of 'em.) Each time it came to second base, one guy was always at the top of the deck--Ryne Sandberg. Long before Sammy Sosa did his smack-hop-smooch home run routine, Sandberg was the face of the Chicago Cubs. So when I got to interview Ryno a few weeks back, it was quite a kick--and another notch off the "heroes of my youth I will stalk as an adult" list. (Watch your back, Eddie Van Halen.) Anyway, the article--in which Sandberg holds forth on how much it sucks that the '80s baseball heroes are getting screwed over--can be found by clickity-clicking right'ere.

Very nice site!
