Couple of exciting things in GirlieView land this week!

First, I’m now on Twitter ( Actually I’ve been on Twitter for a long time, but all I’ve done is listen in on what everyone else has had to say. I thought in honor of Spring Training starting I’d actually get in the game! So if you’re inclined to follow along please do so, especially since you folks already know what GirlieView is. I’ve already disappointed a handful of followers who thought GirlieView = View of Girlies.

Second, I’ve compiled the Lizzie and Lizard stats for YTD 2010. I’ll post them today then maybe every month or two thereafter, particularly when conversations pick up. Here are the current stats! (This includes today’s.) They’re in alphabetical order by screen name.

  • cap’n obvious – 1 Lizzie
  • CubbieDude – 1 Lizzie,  1 Lizard
  • dat_cubfan_daver – 17 Lizzies, 2 Lizards
  • Doc Raker – 7 Lizzies
  • Joe Aiello – 4 Lizzies, 1 Lizard
  • jswanson – 6 Lizzies
  • kris – 1 Lizzie
  • MJ – 1 Lizzie
  • MoondogKP – 1 Lizzie
  • Mr. David M. Beyer – 1 Lizzie, 2 Lizards
  • Seymour Butts – 9 Lizzies
  • wpbc – 2 Lizzies

Now, without further ado …


  • Does anyone realize the dichotomy of wanting your team to sign high priced free agents at every chance and then complaining of higher ticket prices.
  • I’d hope visitors would be so intrigued by the witticisms being exchanged here that they’d make an effort to explore the blog further and come back for more.
  • a certain prospect, who’s name we will not speak of for fear of a Corey Pattersonesque jinx
  • If a rhyme ‘s what i takes,
    then a rhyme I will make.
    For a shot at a Lizzie
    makes my blood run all fizzy.
    So I’ll send this retort
    to the above fine report,
    thus begins a new chapter in our favorite sport.
  • Not too shabby
    And it’s good you’re not crabby
    For with your butt showing willy-nilly
    I’d think you’d be chilly
  • cigars, Courvoisier and corn chips
  • Chan Ho Park: good fastball, great beard
  • They can be prayed about, hexes, curses and pincushion dolls can be formulated, but we all just have to wait and see.


  • I’ve got Cubs tickets – I’m feelin’ good.
