That Was Satisfying


I would be lying if I said I didn’t have a bias in this year’s World Series, especially after the Cubs’ season ended.  I’m still happy with the season overall, but I’m a tad annoyed with the way it ended, y’know?  So I was particularly satisfied with the result of Continue reading

Don’t Mind Us. We’re Only Bloggers.


I’m going to preface this with one simple thing…my beef with Dan Dakich didn’t start out with a personal dislike for the guy.  I don’t know him.  Heck, as a college basketball analyst, Dakich is in the top two or three at ESPN.  He does a ton of Wisconsin games. Continue reading

Heading Into the Offseason With Heads Held High

8 wins away from a World Series title is much better than we've seen in years.

Well, the Chicago Cubs season is over.  I’m a bit disappointed, but I don’t blame the team or anything.  The New York Mets were just better, and there was no lack of effort on the Cubs’ part.  They simply got outplayed, and there’s no shame in that.  Baseball is weird, Continue reading

They still have to win four…right?


I’d be lying if I said I was confident right now, but then again I don’t have a choice.  The Cubs have nothing more to lose as every game from this point on has literally taken “MUST WIN” importance.  It doesn’t hurt us (any more than three straight disheartening losses) Continue reading

After all the excitement tonight, including a called shot, it’s time to say good night.  Enjoy our time, Cubs fans. We’ve waited a long time, and we deserve this, as do the players who got us to this point, of course. Your browser does not support iframes.

The Called Shot

It wasn’t exactly the shot that won the game for the Chicago Cubs, and in doing so clinched the series and advanced them to the NLCS, but it certainly made things easier for Hector Rondon.  I’m talking about Kyle Schwarber calling his shot: Haha Fowler said Schwarber called his shot. Continue reading

Things I think I think (Cubs vs. Cards edition)


The series opener didn’t go the Chicago Cubs’ way, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be shut down forever.  As awesome as it would be, it’s highly improbable that any team will win all their games, especially in the postseason when every team is theoretically good at baseball.  Anyway, we have Continue reading

Random dream sequence with Stephen Piscotty


Just before I awoke this fine Sunday morning (actually, it’s rather gloomy out), I had a very random and vivid dream about…I can’t even begin to interpret it. My brain works in mysterious ways as I do 6-degrees-of-Kevin Bacon type connections so maybe it stemmed from that mechanism.  Maybe it’s Continue reading

So…what about the American League?


With their latest victory, the Chicago Cubs guaranteed that they would have at least the third best record in Major League Baseball, since at 96 wins banked, they will finish 2015 with a better possible record than any American League opponent.  The Cardinals are still Devil Magic and the Pirates Continue reading
