Ernie Banks' Annual Cubs Slogans

Cubs legend Ernie Banks celebrated his 80th birthday earlier this week! Each year, Mr. Cub unveils a rhyming slogan for the Chicago Cubs season. Here is the one for this season.

"Santo's in heaven, so we're going to win in '11!"

Will this finally be the slogan that comes true? It all started with "The Cubs will shine in '69" and since then Banks has gone through a lot of slogans. Here is the list of some of the slogans. Add any that I missed to the comments.
  • The Cubs will be devine in 2009!
  • The Cubs will sour in 2004!
  • The Cubs will glow in 7-0!
  • The Cubs will be thunderous in 71-derous!
  • The Cubs will be heavenly in 67ly!
  • The Cubs will come through in 72!
  • The Cubs will be great in 68!
  • The Cubs are going to win in 2010!

This is a short list, but one thing is for sure. When Ernie's slogan comes out, it means baseball is right around the corner.

11 days until pitchers and catcher report... 24 days until Cactus League Baseball!
