I think today I’ll just wish you a happy weekend and get to the Lizzies.


  • So far, the best played postseason game was the last game of the regular season.
  • [Marquis] is a 4 or 5 starter and thinks he is an ace.
  • My screen name celebrates my youth, my early blind belief in and enthusiasm for both a player (Pepitone) and a team (the Cubs) that seemed truly awesome.
  • Pepitone still has that long pretty hair although he can take it off any time he wants.
  • It is pretty difficult to make a judgment about Cutler when he is working behind an awful offensive line.
  • It’s better to be a Nit-picking bunghole than a Bung-picking Nithole.
  • You could rebuild Wrigley! Essentially building a duplicate with nice amenities in a spot that was a little more fan friendly.
  • I love the idea of MB being moved to the Yankees.


  • What’s that saying about: ”Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool,…”?
