I think today I’ll just wish you a happy weekend and get to the Lizzies.


  • So far, the best played postseason game was the last game of the regular season.
  • [Marquis] is a 4 or 5 starter and thinks he is an ace.
  • My screen name celebrates my youth, my early blind belief in and enthusiasm for both a player (Pepitone) and a team (the Cubs) that seemed truly awesome.
  • Pepitone still has that long pretty hair although he can take it off any time he wants.
  • It is pretty difficult to make a judgment about Cutler when he is working behind an awful offensive line.
  • It’s better to be a Nit-picking bunghole than a Bung-picking Nithole.
  • You could rebuild Wrigley! Essentially building a duplicate with nice amenities in a spot that was a little more fan friendly.
  • I love the idea of MB being moved to the Yankees.


  • What’s that saying about: ”Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool,…”?

    I’ve been waiting all day for your Lizzies and Lizard to post. Thanks. You have a good weekend, too.

  • BuckeyeCub

    I find this week’s Lizzies a bunch of Gregg. Usually the Lizzies are not full of Gregg, but this week they are

  • cubbiedude

    Hey BuckeyeCub,

    What’s your point of reference?

    Are you comparing “this week’s Lizzies” to YOUR most recent post, maybe?

    And could you be more specific?

  • BuckeyeCub

    No, I was comparing them my most recent post, I just felt that they weren’t very good this week

  • Let me guess, BuckeyeCub didn’t make the Lizzie list? Is that how you Buckeye fans are, whiners? Try harder, don’t whine. Maybe pith just ain’t your bag BuckeyeCub?

  • BuckeyeCub

    Why would I whine about it now when I achieved my goal of making the list a few weeks ago? It’s just my opinion god dam it

  • I don’t know, why would you whine? Let us know when you figure it out.

  • BuckeyeCub

    God dam you know what, I’m done arguing. I usually find the Lizzies good, this week I didn’t.

  • lizzie

    The Lizard is even better now than when I picked it yesterday!

    Pith. LOL. Too funny Doc!

  • Seymour Butts

    Good, Bad, indifferent, they are still the highlight of the week. And yes our weeks are rather bleak.

  • JoePepitone

    I, for one, am thrilled! I made the Lizzies! Woo hoo!

  • Lizzie

    JoePepitone, you captured in one sentence exactly what “being a fan” should feel like. That definitely deserved its Lizzie!
