In My Mind

Written by , Posted in General

Let’s say, hypothetically, that Windmill Kim didn’t send Mark Grudzielanek to his doom at the plate. Even though it’s really a stretch to do this, let’s reconstruct the inning based on the next few Cubs at-bats (both in the 8th and the 9th) to see what might have been: * * * * * * * * Ben Grieve singles on a ground ball to center fielder Wily Mo Pena. Mark Grudzielanek to 3rd. Tom Goodwin to 2nd. (now based loaded, 1 out) Corey Patterson hits a sacrifice fly to right fielder Austin Kearns. Mark Grudzielanek scores. Tom Goodwin to […]

Survivor Update

Written by , Posted in General

As the time drew closer to another season of Survivor, my excitement began to build. Fresh off Survivor All Stars, which in my opinion was the best season yet, I needed to get my fix. This season takes place on the islands of Vanuatu, which are known as the fire islands. Something about that appeals to me. I’m not sure why fire adds to the drama, but it just does for some reason. This years castaways are divided into 2 tribes, which is different from All Stars, which had them divided into 3 tribes. Personally, I enjoyed the three tribe […]

Fan E-mails

Written by , Posted in General

Every now and then, I get the privilege of receiving an E-mail from a Cub fan who reads the site and decides they want to send me a question or a comment.

It always makes me laugh that someone would actually write in the first place, to be honest. Last night, we had a power outage and I was not able to see the […]

Cub Confidence

Written by , Posted in General

The Cubs go out and get the job done this series. The do what they needed to do by sweeping a weak team down the stretch. Now, how do you and I feel about this team? What is your Cub Confidence level? I think a simple 1-10 scale should serve us well. What I would like for our readers to do is simple. Make known to the world where you stand on this teams chances to win it all for this year. With 10 being completely confident and 1 being terrified and despondent, declare if you’re on or off the […]

Any Way The Wind Blows

Written by , Posted in General

As Corey’s pop fly sailed six miles up into the “jet stream” towards left center field and into the basket in the eighth, loyal Cubs fans everywhere leapt off of their sofas, shouted with excitement, and spilled their adult beverages on their pets. Well, maybe that was just me. While it could be said that all of the Cubs’ offense tonight came off the bat of Patterson, it could also be said that the game would never have gone to extra innings without that friendly outgoing breeze at the Friendly Confines. That made me wonder, over the course of the […]
