Ryno became one of the most beloved sports figures in Chicago history. It only made sense that fans wanted him to run for President in 1984. He could have easily won the Chicago precincts without the aid of anyone voting from the grave.

The 1984 Cubs were a very colorful group that became a legendary club in Chicago sports lore even without reaching the World Series. Nothing was expected of a team that won only 71 games the year before and hadn't finished with a winning record since 1972.

In 1984, the Chicago Cubs captured the hearts and minds of Chicago sports fans. Many Chicagoans will look back to that year as the time they became Cub Fans. Even though they fell short of winning their first PENNANT in almost 40 years, the team left an indelible mark on a generation of Cubs fans who remember hearing Van Halen's "Jump" open WGN telecasts. Fans have lasting memories of The Penguin, Sutcliffe, and, of course, Ryno's brilliance (who could forget the "Sandberg Game" vs. the Cardinals).
