Last weekend, after 72 years, WGN-TV Sports signed off with its final airing of Cubs and White Sox games. I had been mentally preparing for this for some time now, ever since it became known that the Cubs would be moving to their own cable television network while the White Sox, along with the Blackhawks and Bulls, would air their local broadcasts exclusively on NBC Sports Chicago.
Though the White Sox are now my team as an adult, the Cubs were my childhood team when I began watching baseball in 1992. Those games were on WGN with Harry Caray and Steve Stone. Now that Stone is with the White Sox, and considering that the final WGN broadcast was a White Sox game, I thought it was fitting that the broadcast closed out with Stone voicing the final words.
