(A Dramatization, not to be taken seriously)
Late at night in the Arizona desert a phone rings…
A Just Woken Up Voice: Hello?!?
Voice on the Other End of the Phone: Ron, its Pat.
Ronny: Patrick, why are you calling so late? We just got the grandson to sleep. Are you calling to get more copies of “This Old Cub”?
Pat: No Ronny, I called with news. Big news.
Ronny: Oh Patrick, it can’t be the veteran’s committee, is it? I mean that would be unprecedented for me to get in especially since…
Pat (interrupting): No Ronny, you know those guys hate you. It’s bigger than that, Stony resigned.
Ronny (laughing): Patrick, you always know how to make me laugh. He’s one of the best color guys in the biz. If that were true then…
Pat: Yes, Ron. Everyone will turn off the volume on their televisions and be listening to us.
Ronny (screaming): That’s great news Patrick! Great news! Can we bring back the bit about peeling an orange and keeping the peel whole?
Pat: Of course Ron, every Cub fan in the WGN listening area will be to us, not the bozos on the t.v.
Ronny: Patrick, I have to go. The grandson just woke up. (giggling) Oh, I can’t wait for Spring training.
Pat: Me neither Ronny. Good night.
