Letter to the Editor: Thanks from Mr. C

Dear Readers,

Hi! Lots of people know me. Do you? If you do, great for me! If you don’t, that’s probably great for you. You see, I’m the restaurant guy famous for “A burger as big as my head”. I’m also the guy who’s getting famous for making the “Go, Cubs, Go!” TV commercials that a couple of radio stations happen to call the worst and most annoying ever!

However, after the most fantastic World Series EVER, I cannot believe the outpouring of goodwill from Cubs fans, most of whom don’t even know me. Hundreds of folks have called or visited my restaurant to let me know how happy they were for ME that this year was the year the Cubs won it all. Most folks said that after a deceased loved one, they thought of me next. How awesome is that? And from the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you to everybody.

On the other hand, and I’m not crazy, hundreds of folks said that they thought that maybe the Cubs finally won it all BECAUSE of me and my enthusiastic commercials.

And from the top of my voice, I want to scream “You’re welcome”.

Go Cubs! Go, Cubs, Go! This was the year – for sure!
