Interview with Christian Ruzich

Written by , Posted in General

Well, I figured that anyone who comes to the site on a day after the Cubs probably finished off their chances of reaching the postseason would want something other than negative to read. So, I present an interview with the Cub Reporter. Enjoy!!!! TVFTB – I notice that you do not live in Chicago, how did you become a Cub fan? CR – I grew up in the Chicago suburbs (Downers Grove), and was somewhat of a Cubs fan as a kid, but when I got out of college I lived within shouting distance of Wrigley Field for two years […]

Remember Bartman?

Written by , Posted in General

I don’t know why, but yesterday’s loss feels a lot like that. After that game last year, I has so despondent that I did not even want to watch game 7. I knew in my heart that the Cubs would not win. When you have that big of a letdown, it’s just too hard to get up for the next game. I am deathly afraid that is what is going to happen now for these last four games. Really, when you look at the standings, the Cubs still control whether or not they have a shot at postseason play. Despite […]

Enough is Enough

Moises Alou is a cancer to this Chicago Cubs ball club. I truly believe he is the main reason, why this team seems to feel they have the right to complain about every call that goes against them. After all, if Alou is complaining, and he is a seasoned veteran who has seen it all, then by golly the call must be going against the Cubs. I really believe that is the reasoning some of the younger players on this team are using when complaining about calls. They see one of their leaders do it so it means they have […]

Down the Stretch They Come

Written by , Posted in General

Six games left. It all comes down to this. How bad do you want it? The Cubs have this week to make up for a whole season of disappointment. One week to overcome all the injuries suffered and rise to the place many expected them to be at the beginning of the season. One week to make our city and their fans proud. It’s a great amount of pressure on a team that hasn’t won a World Series in going on 100 years. Mike Downy seems to think the Cubs appear ready. I hope he’s right. I watched the game […]

Not really sure what to make of this one. I recieved it late Thursday or Friday night, I can’t remember which. Anyways, take a look and tell me what you think. A Wild Card Manifesto I see it clean and simple. The cubs have global warming on our side, we’re getting hot at the right time and we can thank mother nature. All the player-hater reporters are causing the ice in greenland to melt. Their hot air disrupted the penguin migration. The resulting Zambrano-Edmonds shakespearean tempest has screwed up the trade winds and hope blows afresh. Prior and Wood are […]
