Soderholm won the Sporting News Comeback Player of the Year award in 1977, but was out of baseball after 1980, though he tried another comeback with the Cubs in spring training in 1982. Still living in the Western Burbs according to Wikipedia (maybe Minnesota was just a little too cold).

As for the Cubs, shockingly, they lost on the 5th 11-8 to fall out of first place, never to return, sinking to a 81-81 finish even though they got both Reuschel (20-10) and Sutter (7-1, 31 Saves) back off the DL for the stretch run.

I think Soderholm's wife was Mrs. Illinois while he was with the Sox. She is a very attractive woman.

Would anyone know which color camera model and manufacturer was used by WSNS for their coverage of White Sox games?

Soderholm was one of the first big ticket brokers in the area. He's still in the western suburbs; I saw him leaving my bank in Darien a few weeks ago (although I didn't approach him, as he looked as if he was pressed for time). He doesn't have the groovy glasses or 'stache; he does have a close-cropped salt-and-pepper goatee, however.

I can now say I've seen Weigel do the sports on 2,5 and 7. I remember the 2 on 2 show he did towards the end of his life and just how great he was on that show. I still miss him

"Do it?" Yeesh.

Points, though, to Hunter for walking away from Tim while still keeping his arms folded.

Sox ended up winning the game 5-4. Steve Stone got the win and Lerrin LaGrow the save. Blyleven took the loss.

PVX: I was a master control operator in the 1990s and 2000s, and the ISCI codes were 4 letters and 4 numbers. An Ad Council public service announcement started with the letter C and three letters for the campaign, the digits would start with the year the spot was created, the revision or version number, and the last 2 digits being the length of the ad, so a 30 second Smokey the Bear Forest Fire Prevention PSA from 1999 would have been CNFF-9130.

Is that cottage cheese on the plate, or some kind of tartar sauce?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5-x-9LciYA is basically the same ad about 13 years earlier sans the baby.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar's first commercial is for DAS Smurf Modelling Clay. He would have been 8 years old here.

Additional note: CHCH in Hamilton began rerunning the series as of January 21, 2019, with special guest appearances by the Diff'rent Strokes main cast in that first episode (originally aired August 24, 1979 on NBC), and a larger cast than what we'd be accustomed to in later seasons as the girls grew up over the years.

George Clooney appeared in a number of Season 7 episodes of The Facts of Life starting with S7E2, which was the episode WGN ran on this particular day.
