Countdown to the Cubs Convention: 10 Days

The fact that the 2010 Cubs Convention is only ten days away might make you feel a little warmer on this cold winter day in the Chicago land area.

Yesterday, there was minor news on the Convention front. According to the WGN Radio programming schedule, David Kaplan will once again broadcast Sports Central live from the Convention. Last year, the Sports Central segment was recorded on Friday and then played on Saturday night because of a Black Hawks game being broadcast on WGN Radio, but this year there is no Hawks game on Cubs Convention Friday, so they show will be live on WGN Radio AM 720 from 7-9. The guests that will join Kap and the rest of the Cubs Convention schedule have not yet been announced, I'll post when I hear something.

Here are the lists of guests that have appeared on Sports Central year-by-year:
