Who Am I?

Written by , Posted in General

Who Am I? is a feature here at VFTB designed to give some of the focus back to those who make the site a success: YOU! We’ll tell you a bit about one of our regulars and you guess who it is. We’ll be back later in the day with the answer.

(This is the final installment of Who Am I? for now. We’re going to actually be able to talk about real live baseball very soon so we’re clearing the decks in preparation for that! I do have a waiting list of folks who’ve already indicated they’d like to be included in case our beloved Cubbies are completely out of it and we’re bored by mid-May. So, if you’d like to be placed on the Who Am I? waiting list, let me know at lizzie@viewfromthebleachers.com … the more the merrier!)

Who Am I?

  • I’ve only been in the Chicago area since 2000, so I’m a fairly new (but no less enthusiastic) Cubs fan. I usually go to Wrigley once a year on my birthday. I’ve been a baseball fan since childhood.
  • I thought Hendry was ok and I have high hopes for Theo, though I don’t expect miracles. I do not expect the Cubs to contend in 2012.
  • I found VFTB through a Google search about four or five years ago, and was drawn to it because of the civility. My favorite part of the site is the conversation among the readers. It’s great to see people of such varied backgrounds coming together solely due to the shared love of a team.
  • I find Carlos Zambrano to be ultra-annoying, and I was sad to see Aramis Ramirez leave (even though I thought he needed a kick in the rear sometimes).
  • I favor a combination of stats and gut.
  • If I was to dine with Seymour he’d have the answer to a question he and Doc Raker have been asking for years.

Who Am I?

  • BLPCB

    This is you

  • Seymour Butts

    Is it me?

    • Lizzie

       Not you, Sey! 🙂

  • Seymour Butts

    Is it me?

  • Seymour Butts

    I’m guessing the answer to the question is… Yes. Speedo or no.

    Strike my guess on Lizzie. My guess is Noah

    BLPCB you need to go with your instincts. You wanted to guess Joe last week but didn’t, it was Joe. You guessed me this week then changed to Noah, but it’s me.

    Looks like Joe wins as the Who Am I to stump the troops the longest! Way to go Joe! And way to go BLPCB also for being the best guesser overall!

      You can’t fault me on last week, how was I supposed to guess Alf lead him to founding this site?

    • Seymour Butts

      I didn’t have to guess, the last clue made it obvious to myself and Raker. So when does it get answered?

      • Doc Raker

        ha- one day

    I was going to guess former Cub Steve Christmas, but nevermind.

    I was going to guess former Cub Pete LaCock but remembered that he doesn’t comment here so I ruled him out.
