Tickets Anyone?

Written by , Posted in General

Recently, I added the Twix advertising on the left side of the site. In exchange, they slipped me a pair of Cub tickets in Houston on July 3rd. Unfortunately, Houston is a long way from North Carolina so I will not be able to go. I am looking to sell the tickets at face value if someone is interested. All I know is that they are row 24.

Had enough yet?

If you care like I do, if you feel like I do, if you want the Cubs to change like I do bypass MacFail and his corrupt regime and contact the Tribune Company directly.

That’s right, ME! Dusty the Clown! As you know boys and girls, we must be totally fair in how we run the Cubs.

Question of the Day

Written by , Posted in General

If the Cubs fall below the Pirates AND the Royals records, does Dusty Baker get the axe? On a side note, Yarbage Cub Review has been in attendance for this Twins series and has had a chance to stay at the same hotel as the Cubs. Visit his site

Game 73: Post-game musings

Written by , Posted in General

Dusty-o-Meter: T minus 89 games and counting Hendry-o-Meter: T minus 413 games and counting Recently the Cubs haven’t been playing so well and you can only bake the same cake so many times. So I’ve refrained from commenting much on the current state of the Cubs, unless of course it has been to let off some steam and “get it out.” But there’s a few things that I saw tonight that were noteworthy. First of all, I was impressed by Prior’s performance. I’ve been watching him like a hawk because I’m still suspicious about that shoulder. Today he hit 94 […]
