Happy Friday, VFTB’ers! What shall we chit chat about today? Anyone? Anything? Bueller? Bueller? I don’t have anything noteworthy to say about the Cubs, and it’s too blasted hot to talk about anything else. So maybe we’ll get right to the Lizzies! Hope you all have a great weekend!!


  • Exactly why did I think the Cubs might make some noise in the second half?
  • I see you’ve found my picture on google.
  • You know who Joe Morgan’s favorite player is? Joe Morgan!
  • The fiance is now the wife.
  • That cute little girl from that new(-ish) Love Bug movie is in trouble with the law??
  • I found myself hoping for a rainout almost immediately.
  • I’m pretty sure I just made up the word “chummery.”
  • Who wouldn’t rather go home to play with the grandkids after a year like this?
  • Odd bunch Cubs fans are…
  • Have you heard the news? Lou is retiring at season’s end!
  • The Astros must be in first place, right???
  • I’m pretty sure Fukudome flies back to Japan in the end of April and sends in a body double for the remainder of the season.
  • In my eyes, [Zambrano] should still be sitting in the corner without dessert.
  • gotta love a cubs comeback win
  • After all, dude sawed his fingers off and still plays.
  • The Astros, sick of waiting for us to finish them off, take care of business in the 12th
  • It’s time, Jimmy Boy, it’s time. Make the calls and let’s start moving.
  • At least Milton is gone…right? Right?
  • No, not that kind of quickie.
  • Nice pic Daver…now I want shrimp and booze.
  • The way this team stinks, and looking at the hot mess of next year, slumpbusting could be taken to a new level…
  • this one’s broke and it needs to be fixed.
  • Kevin “Walk-Walk-Homer” Gregg


  • I just hope Uncle Lou has stocked up on whiskey and smokes. It’s going to be a LONG summer.
