Shannon’s dad Dean was a BIG Chicago Cubs fan and one of his favorite players was 3rd baseman Ron Santo. Dean had a chance to go into the broadcast booth and meet him on my first trip to Wrigley Field close to 15 years ago. He told me it was one of the best days of his life.
I'm Michael Smith and this website is simply documentation of our travels over the course of 500 days. We are very lucky. We went bowling ... and some other stuff.
