Turkey of a thought on Opening Day

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Today is opening day of turkey season in the north zone. And the home opener for a team on the North Side.

That's Greg Mroczkowski and his sons Adam, 12, and Cole, 14, with the turkeys bagged during the youth season the first Sunday in April. The south suburban guys were hunting in Brown County.

It was the first turkey for Adam and the third for Cole, described by his father as a cross between Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer when it comes to the outdoors.

Then Mroczkowski added this: ``p.s. Cole and I are cubs fans and Adam is a White Sox fan so if we can hunt together there's hope for Chicago.''

The idea is touching, but reality is only one of the Chicago teams has taken it beyond hope in the past century.
