Rep. Sauer Guest Spot Featured in SW Lake Lifestyle Magazine

From SW Lake Lifestyle Magazine: The Cubs Way for Illinois, By State Representative Nick Sauer (R-Lake Barrington)

In March the Chicago Cubs organization visited the Illinois House of Representatives for a special joint session of the General Assembly. Cub’s legend Ryne Sandberg and team owner Tom Ricketts brought along a new friend – the 2016 World Series trophy. The occasion brought back memories of last season’s legendary season and the epic come-from-behind World Series win. That day in Springfield got me thinking about teamwork; about how special goals are achieved when people come together despite years of adversity.

I had the good fortune to attend Game 5 of the World Series, the only game won by the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Before the game fans were given a blue rally towel with a white W in the center. The white W is made up of the names of Cubs players and Manager Joe Maddon. Without any one name, the W printed on the towel would not be complete. We know that this symbolically was true of Cubs last season. Without players like Fowler, Bryant, Rizzo, Schwarber, Hendricks, Zobrist, Lester and the rest, the Cubs would have never made it to the World Series, much less rallied to win three straight World Series games to end the 108-year championship drought.
