Story 121
Harry Caray - I was in Chicago for a conference at the Palmer House Hilton. At dinner that night (Miller's Pub and Restaurant around the corner), I was busy watching a football game on the overhead TV with a friend. Suddenly I hear a half-belligerent voice asking me, "Are the Bears on?" I looked down to see Harry Caray. To my surprise I shouted "Harry!" and offered my hand which he shook. He and his wife were then seated at a booth. He proceeded to belligerently ask the staff to move to a booth where he could see the game. All the while, his embarassed wife kept saying, "Harry! Stop!" It was a fun surprise to see a classic personality like Harry Caray in rare form. He died less than a month later.
