The Beginning of the End

Share Button

When the Cubs finally won the World Series, it was as if a huge weight was lifted off our collective backs. It was basically the exact opposite feeling of when Obi-Wan felt all the people of Alderaan screaming and then become silent on that one really really bad day they Continue reading The Beginning of the End

Shrug Emoji

I remember a time when the Cubs really sucked and I could get tickets for a dollar and sit in pretty much any seat I wanted (except for the really good ones next to the dugouts, those ushers really were vigilant). Those days are long gone, as Wrigley Field has Continue reading Shrug Emoji

Courts Rule That Angel Hernandez is Bad at His Job

Share Button

In a ruling that pretty much surprises no one, a federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by noted Very Bad Ump™ Angel Hernandez: I certainly like this story for a few reasons. One, as Jomboy says, the judge essentially said what we all knew: that Angel Hernandez is bad Continue reading Courts Rule That Angel Hernandez is Bad at His Job

Dreamcast 49: Manufactured Triumph

Share Button

Has it really been that long since we did a Dreamcast? The answer, unfortunately, is yes, because life is busy, but that’s no excuse for not taking this hobby more seriously. Or maybe it is. Anyway, this is just a great opportunity to talk baseball and Star Trek with fellow Continue reading Dreamcast 49: Manufactured Triumph

Hope Springs Eternal

As I motor on in my current (new) job and am about to take on another (part-time) job, I realized that I haven’t touched this blog since January, so it’s time to start doing something again, especially with the regular season almost upon us. Since last we spoke, the Cactus Continue reading Hope Springs Eternal

A New Beginning…?

Share Button

The title of this one is a reference not only to the Chicago Cubs, but also to the fact that I haven’t blogged in a while and figured I should probably set up some kind of work-life balance to try to squeeze something out on a regular basis. Perhaps starting Continue reading A New Beginning…?

A Year Unlike Any Other

Share Button

Has it really been that long since we blogged? I guess the answer is yes, and it’s something of a miracle that this site is still around after two-plus months of idleness. Going to have to break out the Swiffers to get rid of all this dust, and catch up Continue reading A Year Unlike Any Other

The Morning After

Share Button

So, the Chicago Cubs ended the season having earned the right to play at home in the first round of the playoffs… …and then proceeded to join the rest of their Central division brethren in going 0-for-7 in the postseason. Which, yes, means that the division series will only have Continue reading The Morning After

Wrapping Up the Regular Season

Share Button

The Cubs did clinch the NL Central during their loss to the White Sox on Saturday, and decided to switch to “whatever” mode shortly after, earning the right to chill and wait for their eventual first round opponent. It’s a testament to the patience, attitude, and resilience of the team Continue reading Wrapping Up the Regular Season

An Industrial Sized Chill Pill

Share Button

Boy, you think the Cubs had turned a corner, and then suddenly they drop a key series to the literal worst team in MLB. Naturally it is easy to think that if this were an actual 162 game season without a pandemic lurking, this set of Cubs would be blown Continue reading An Industrial Sized Chill Pill
