Sad Day in Polka: Walter E. Jagiello, Aug. 1, 1930 to Aug. 17, 2006

"Lil' Wally the Polka King" -- co-writer of the "Let's Go, Go-Go White Sox" theme song (an mp3 of which does NOT appear on this blog, despite daily visits from Google-searchers looking for such an animal) -- has died at the age of 76. The Chicago Tribune's obit is here.

As we all know, there is no beer in heaven, so I hope you drank plenty of it here, Wally. And I'll try to pick up the slack for you in your absence.

No beer, but plenty of tequilla and nachos (at least that's what I read on a fellow swine's blog, and he is a prophet who has seen hog heaven in a dream).
