  • Harry Caray DA MAN!!!

    Written proof that Harry was one of the best drinkers of all time...
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...rial&hpt=hp_t3

    I've told the story here before, but it's worth repeating in abbreviated form...a buddy and I saw Steve Stone getting out of his high end 911 series Porsche at Wrigley before a game, I yelled out "Nice ride!" and Steve nodded at me amiably and started heading into the park. My buddy yelled, "What does Harry drive??", and Stone actually took a moment to stop and give him a quizzical look like he should have known..."Harry doesn't drive!!!"

      Was drinking attributed to his stroke?

          Will Ferrell did what? Excessive drinking increases the risk of stroke. Caray estimated that he drank 300,000 alcoholic beverages in his life. Is that incorrect?

              I'm sure his drinking played a role in his stroke which is a shame because most people who remember him only know the slurring caricature of himself that he became in his later years.
