The 1970s Cubs in 7 Minutes

Perhaps the strangest seven minutes I’ve spent all week is watching this WGN video compilation of 1970s Cubs spring training coverage. Learn all about how the Cubs are going to win it all in 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, and 1979. Go Cubs. Go.

Did you know Ernie Banks can sing (sort of)? And Jose Cardenal can juggle (sort of)? Now you will!
