About Crazy Cubs Fan

I am originally from the suburbs of Hoffman Estates and Schaumburg. I moved to Southern California, then lived in Omaha Nebraska for 10 years. I just moved back to the Chicagoland area back in June 2016. Have been a Cubs fan all my life and even have it tattooed on my upper left arm to show my devotion to this wonderful team. I just hope as the old saying goes that the Cubs win it just once in my lifetime.

I was quite surprised to hear on the morning of March 19th on Comcast Sports Net’s Sportsnet Central that the Mayor of Rosemont Brad Stephens has offered the Ricketts Family 25 acres of apparently some prime real estate to build the new home of the Chicago Cubs on. This is Continue reading Rosemont Cubs????

A Mascot, Really???!!!!!!!

Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune, in his Sunday March 10, 2013 column, discusses that the Ricketts Family is considering a mascot for the Chicago Cubs. I for one personally find that to be a big mistake and having a mascot would detract from the experience of being at Wrigley Continue reading A Mascot, Really???!!!!!!!

It surprises me that now fifteen years after Harry Caray passed away that the Chicago Cubs organization is still working on having seventh inning stretch guest conductors for the upcoming season. I totally understand why the Cubs decided to have guest conductors in 1998 yet, the novelty has most definitely Continue reading End The Guest Conductor

So Where Do The Cubs Stand Now?

It has been a while since I last put together my thoughts on the 2012 season and man have things changed again quite dramatically. At one point after calling up Anthony Rizzo it appeared that the Cubs were going to prove the nay-sayers wrong in how bad they would be. Continue reading So Where Do The Cubs Stand Now?

This is my article that I wrote after attending the Cubs Fan Convention in January 2007. If you have never attended a Cubs Fan Convention, I would highly recommend making plans for the January 2013 Convention as soon as the dates are announced.

An Open Letter From 2006

This is a letter that I wrote to the Board of Directors of the Chicago Cubs at that time. This was published in the Bleacher Banter prior to finding out that Andy MacPhail was resigning from the Cubs. Did my letter actually help that process?  I do not know, however, Continue reading An Open Letter From 2006
