As Chicagoans, adopted or otherwise, everyone at Numero shares in the mourning after the recent passing of Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks. We’ll leave the eulogizing to the sports writers, but we wanted to take an opportunity to share a little known aspect of Banks’ storied career. Like many other ball players, Banks’ issued a novelty disco 45. In fitting with Banks’ fabled sportsmanship, it was an ode to his principles rather than a swaggering, self-aggrandizing paean to victory. Banks will be missed. As a tribute, make sure you play it twice.

A great tribute to Mr. Cub would be for the fans to sing their version of this before every home game. If the players could only feel the “Ernie Banks” presence at the start, I’ll bet the Cubs would finish great. They’re all ready champions to me.
