The Chicago Cubs: True Hollywood Story

Share Button

The Cubs Convention has ended, and with the Chicago Cubs having brought back most of their core World Series-winning roster, there wasn’t really much in the way of transactional news.  That meant the Convention was mostly just Cubs fans feeling good about each other, getting the same news we already Continue reading The Chicago Cubs: True Hollywood Story

Cubs Convention 2017 Was Something Different

Share Button

The 2017 Chicago Cubs Convention was one that will be remembered for the rest of my life. While the convention is enjoyable every year, this one was something special. For the first time in convention history​​, the Cubs were celebrating a championship. Needless to say, there was very little said Continue reading Cubs Convention 2017 Was Something Different

Cubs Business As The Convention Begins (UPDATES)

Share Button

Aside from a surprise pitching acquisition or two (UPDATE: not Tyson Ross), the Chicago Cubs don’t have much else to do before the Cubs Convention starting Friday.  Most of the team that won the World Series remains intact, all a year older, and while some will likely be on the Continue reading Cubs Business As The Convention Begins (UPDATES)

A New Year, a New Cubs Convention

Share Button

This year’s Cubs Convention will be, shall we say, unconventional.  I’m sure they’ll do their usual thing with the Opening Ceremony, the usual panels, the games for the kids, and Cubs Jeopardy and Bingo.  However, I use the word “unconventional” to mean that this will be the very first Cubs Continue reading A New Year, a New Cubs Convention

It’s almost time for one of the most fun Chicago Cubs fan experiences since the team won the 1908 World Series!  That’s right, the Cubs Convention starts on Friday night, and team WSD will be in attendance (some of us hoping that certain radio personalities won’t be) to party, drink, Continue reading Stuff to ask Tom Ricketts at the Cubs Convention

Cubs Convention coming up!

Share Button

Every year I seem to follow the same cycle.  The season ends, and I spend a few weeks almost relieved that baseball is over (especially the past few years).  For as bad as they have been, I still made sure that I tuned in to every single game, whether it Continue reading Cubs Convention coming up!

WSD Contest: Win a Pass to the 2013 Cubs Convention

Share Button

First of all…sweet mother of Mark DeRosa, Cardinals.  You really are black magic.  The Washington Nationals are going to catch all kinds of flak now for not having Stephen Strasburg active, but really, the non-Strasburg Nats didn’t pull enough of their own weight and let a winnable situation slip away. Continue reading WSD Contest: Win a Pass to the 2013 Cubs Convention

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.

This is late, and I’m sorry, I’ve just been so busy, but I didn’t want to pass up my chance to tell you guys about my first Cubs Convention experience. I would have probably stayed home if it weren’t for Anno inviting me. When he invited me to go, I Continue reading Ivy’s Cubs Convention Experience!
