I put the kids to bed, hung out with my wife for a bit and retired to my card room. I popped up ESPN.com and was hit with the news that Ernie Banks, Mr. Cub has passed away. Instant sadness came over me. I am not a Cubs fan but I am a baseball fanatic and it just doesn't get any better than Ernie Banks. He was a great ballplayer and a great man and will be greatly missed. His infectious smile and love of the game will live on in our memories. Rest in Peace Mr. Banks.
