    WGN Morning News - BTTF II skit - Cubs to the Future - Cubs Convention 2015

    The DMC Club had the opportunity to do a BTTF II type of skit with the WGN Morning News show this morning,
    in advance of the 30th Anniversary of the Cubs Convention (Cubs Fest) this weekend.

    Tom "McFly" Sedor represented the club (and he is a Cubs season ticket holder -- poor guy), so he brought
    some of his BTTF II memorabilia and some Cubs memorabilia for the skit.

    Tom also has a "Save the Scoreboard Clock" campaign going on, on his website: www.CubsToTheFuture.com

    Jeff Hoover (WGN) played Doc Brown for a play-on-words ending to the skit with the band: The Plain White T's

    See the DeLorean/BTTF II/Cubs 2015 skit at the following link:

    Did it run late? I tried to watch but didn't see it in the expected time slot.

    Yes it did. (this was done live, not taped)

    Breaking News bumped it to after 8:20 am

    DeLorean Midwest Twitter was up to date
    (and time, lol) with the time slot change.

    Sorry, they love Bad Puns at WGN. Check the oil using a Plain White T.
