Love MLB. Love This Kid. Love This Video.

MLB is full of characters as is YouTube. This video is the perfect mix of both.

Cubs fan, Keenan Cahill has been featured on this site before and his videos are great. He suffers from a very rare disease called Maroteaux-Lamy Syndrome. The way the YouTube community and a number of celebrities have embraced this kid is heartwarming. Here is an example of MLB getting on-board. The SF Giants are hosting a fundraiser for Keenan because medications for what he has can run up to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.

Good to see people helping people, nowadays. Stay tuned for future posts regarding a Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation event in Chicago honoring the Cubs and the Ricketts family for their commitment to helping millions of children and adults who live with diabetes. On May 19th they will be paying tribute to Ron Santo at Wrigley Field through their Best of Illinois honor. More details to come!

Baseball is more than a great opportunity to love a sport and eat popcorn and cracker jack. It can be a strong medium to also do some good. Enjoy the video. Go Cubs Go!

No Wonder I Haven’t Heard from Keenan Cahill

Whether you are a regular reader of this blog or perhaps you follow my Twitter account @proseandivy you know that I have been trying to get Internet superstar Keenan Cahill to sign on and agree to doing one of my fan interviews, “Prosecards from Cubs Nation”.  The kid is hilarious, his videos are blowing up youtube and he’s a huge Cubs fan.  He’d be a great interview.

Well, I haven’t heard from him and now I think I know why.  He has bigger fish to fry.  Like hanging out and making music videos in his bedroom with none other than 50 Cent.  Ok, Keenan that’s cool.  No problem.  But you know he’s a Yankee fan, right?  Check out the video here (and you can save time if you’d like by jumping ahead to the 1:20 mark for the big entrance):

Go Cubs Go!
