Namely the No Hitters, like Sam "Toothpick" Jones, Don Cardwell, Kenny Holtzman's two no hitters, Milt Pappas' near perfecto and a young Burt Hooten no hitting the Phillies. But I digress. Here's the Sullivan article and the upcoming schedule of Cubs games on WGN-TV for 2019.
I agree with the points about Arne Harris and Harry. The writer, the impish Paul Sullivan was weeping uncontrollably as he wrote this and he got a punch or two at the Sox, as always. Sullivan is a 💩

When Sullivan was the Sox beat reporter he’d regularly say, “the announced attendance...” as his stupid little attendance jab. During the Cubs rebuild where there were YUGE differences between announced and actual attendance Sully never said a word. Dweeb.
