Sydney Medintz, 95, waited all his life for a big win for his beloved Cubs.
In 2008, a century after they'd last won the World Series, Mr. Medintz told his family: "I can't wait much longer.:
He died at home Monday. He had one last message for the Cubs in his death notice.
"Go Cubs. I waited as long as I could."
He was born the year they built Wrigley Field...and never saw a World Series championship. I feel almost guilty for considering myself a long suffering Cubs fan.
