Written by , Posted in General

No, I’m not just copying Joe, but it is important to me to share with everyone that this past Wednesday, August 18th, was the second anniversary of the blessed union of my wife and me. We were off in Niagara Falls, Ontario while the Cubs were blundering their way to a 13.5 game division deficit and a half-game deficit in the wild card. Upon my return this evening I caught up with Joe’s work on this blog. I both agree and disagree about Sammy. Mostly I agree. Regardless of what a wind machine Sammy is, he’s still got an .893 […]

A Question To All Cub Fans

Written by , Posted in General

As I sat in my living room, frustrated after another game that seemed to get out of hand way too quickly, I began to think about something. A question stuck with me all day that I really do not think I know the answer to. I’d like to see the Cub fans weigh in on this question so I will argue both points of view to present an unbiased opinion on both, because I am, as I said before, on the fence regarding this question. Given the current state of this team, I propose the following inquiry of all Cub […]

Before we cheer and raise our hands to the heavens because we beat a good team, lets see what the Cubs do today and the rest of the series. If it goes well, then I will comment. I have to admit though. Kerry Wood played a heck of a game. postCount(‘109257810520183738’);
