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).
