One of the cooler moments that can happen to a die hard Cubs fan. Ernie was in Chicago Cut Steakhouse tonight. Still has a heck of a grip on his handshake. Very nice guy.

Thread is self explanatory, just wanted to share my excitement with NSBB!!

I had the privilege of caddying for him a couple times when I was younger. He was an incredibly laid back and just go with the flow kind of guy. Really nice and really funny. Every few holes he'd have me play a couple shots for him because he was busy telling a story to the other guys in group. After wards he signed a golf ball and a picture for me which I still have.

You met Sammy Sosa and Ernie Banks in the same night?
