Harry Caray last called a game on September 21, 1997, so some out there might only be familiar with the Cubs broadcaster of 16 years thanks to Will Ferrell's barely coherent send-up. After a glimpse into his partying expense diary, that send-up is probably close enough.
In 1972 Caray was not yet with the Cubs—he was on the South side with the White Sox—and not yet as financially secure as he would come to be. So, notorious boozer that he was, he expensed his time out. Meticulously. The CEO of Caray's restaurant chain got his hands on his expense diary for the year and shared it with the Chicago Sun-Times. It's full of antiquated charm, like reporters hanging out with players, and lots of booze. Lots of booze.
