So I’m watching the Cubs game on ESPN last night, and who do I see on the screen?
That young man wearing the Ron Santo jersey is Matt Sherman, who just completed his freshman year at the University of Illinois. He also just learned he has been accepted to the College of Media, where he will be studying advertising and communications. His parents are very proud.
Matt said the ESPN cameraman was just over his shoulder in centerfield, and he was talking to him throughout the game.
As for how the son of a diehard White Sox fan became a Cubs fan, don’t ask. Still a great kid despite that character flaw.
