Could Be Better / Could Be Worse – Part III

Written by , Posted in General

Well, I woke up this morning to a complete internet outage. This is always frustrating for me because so much that I do revolves around being online. I called Sprint to see if there was an outage they knew of or if it was something on my end. Eventually I was able to get it up and running again. I log on to the site to check and see if there are comments, only to find that the site and my E-mail are also not working. So, I contact the host company and they tell me that the server is […]

Kurt, over at Cub Fan Nation posted about his desire to see Dubois get the last roster spot. I totally agree, but I’d like to take it a step further. Give him the starting LF job!!

I am anxious to see what happens with this. I am very glad Dubois has had a good spring. Hopefully that will put some […]
