John McDonough almost couldn't bear it when friends told him a few years ago that Chicago Blackhawks games were drawing 3,000 fans at the cavernous United Center, flashing back to childhood memories of standing at the old Chicago Stadium because there were no seats to be had in that smoky, passion-rocked arena. The Blackhawks he once loved had become a rudderless mess, invisible in a sports-mad city. "I was a huge fan and always followed the Blackhawks and really saw the decline as sad," said McDonough, who then was working his marketing magic on the 0-since-1908 Cubs.

When John McDonough went to try out for the lead role in "The All New Captain Kangaroo" TV series, he noticed a lot of other actors sporting the original Captain's distinctive Dutch-boy hairstyle. But through multiple auditions, McDonough refused to go the copycat route by jettisoning his own bushy-bearded look and by donning a mop-top wig to cover his thinning hair.

TRAVEL

As a direct result of a tip from Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips (Feb. 19), my wife and I took a six-day tour of the English Lake District during July. The tour was an absolute delight for it made available portions of the Lake District that would be inaccessible to the casual traveler. Accommodations were first-class, the food was superb, the price was reasonable ($1,125 per person), the group was small and the daily tours were interesting, varied and well-organized. The contact was J. Goldsmith, c/o Land of the Lakes Tours Ltd., The Birches, Cornbirthwaite Road, Windermere, Cumbria, LA23 1DG, Great Britain, toll free (800)

An emotional Andy MacPhail resigned Sunday as president and chief executive of the Chicago Cubs after failing to get the team to the World Series during his 12-year tenure. "This is the first thing I've ever done in baseball that I didn't have a high level of success at," MacPhail said, his voice cracking. The Cubs have made only two playoff appearances since MacPhail joined them in 1994 after he spent nine years with the Minnesota Twins, helping them to two World Series titles.

More than 300 "guest conductors" have led the crowd at Wrigley Field in singing "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" during the seventh-inning stretch. When former Chicago Bear tackle Steve McMichael got his chance, he did what the likes of Bill Murray, George Foreman or a purple dinosaur named Barney had never done. He got himself removed from the building by an umpire.

Newell Rubbermaid Inc. named VerticalNet Inc. Chief Executive Joseph Galli as its CEO and president, a move that returns Galli to an "old-economy" company after an 18-month-long stint at Internet firms. The housewares maker, which announced Galli's hiring Monday as its president and CEO, hopes his reputation for marketing savvy and business discipline can help turn around a company whose fortunes have declined in the last two years.
