It’s wrong, but it feels soooooo right

Written by , Posted in General

As a Cub fan and former northsider before moving to NC, I have always hated the White Sox. They are the enemy and deserve to be hated. It’s just so easy to do. However, I have some confessions to make. Believe it or not, I actually watch White Sox games on TV and, cover your ears, I cheer for them to win. I enjoy going to the Cell and catching a game despite the white trash that is always in attendance. Worst of all, I am a loyal reader of a Sox fan site that is run by a good […]

Random Questions pertaining to the Padres Series

Written by , Posted in General

So we managed to limp out of the series with San Diego with 1 win in 3 tries. Excellent, we’re well on our way to that magical 3rd place finish we call crave so badly. I have confidence we’ll pick it up this weekend. So, instead of lamenting about a lost opportunity at home, I’d rather pose a few questions I have in regards to the series.

All Hail The King

Written by , Posted in General

As I watched my favorite pitcher on the staff throw exactly half of his pitches out of the strikezone, I was frustrated at the lack of consistency, but felt OK with the lead in hand. I usually hate bashing a guy after one bad outing so I won’t do that for Wood. He’ll settle down and get in the groove. I don’t expect much from the starters the first time out. Once it comes around again, I expect adjustments to have been made. Someone I do expect big things from is Hawkins. I was excited when we signed him and […]

Puzzle for the Day

Written by , Posted in General

So you’re board at work and looking for something to do? Well, here is a logic puzzle for you. Post your answer in the comment section. Have fun and don’t cheat by looking for the answer on the internet, because I’m sure it’s there. When this year’s Muddville High Marauders took the field on opening day, it was a special occasion for the fathers of six of the starters: not only were their sons playing for the 2002 team, but 25 years earlier, they had opened the season as high school players on the only Muddville squad to win a […]
