Proud of My Happiness Icon

That's Anthony Rizzo's happy face you've seen here every day during August. As the month comes to an end, it's time to celebrate him.

He's the Cubs All-Star first baseman, a hitting machine and a reliable performer with his glove. He made the last out in the 2016 World Series, ending our 108 year drought and delivering the championship. It makes me especially happy that he was the one to make history, because he's a stellar young man.

During the playoffs, Cub fans heard him -- when he didn't realize he was mic'd -- first apologize to an umpire and later confess to being nervous. How great for kids, especially boys, to see good manners and honest emotions embraced!

And he's a cancer survivor, who hasn't forgotten how his battle with disease affected his family.  Look what he did off the field  this week, and you'll see why he's my favorite Cub.
