The first Chicago Cubs game I ever attended at Wrigley Field was this one, around when my friend (a Chicago-area native) graduated from college.  It was a bit overcast, and it threatened to rain all day, but the Cubs won and I was satisfied.  I also recall that we got Continue reading I’ll Never Be Able to Afford to Go to a Cubs Game Again…and That’s OK

It’s been a very busy time for us real life folks, and it’s getting to the busy time in the offseason for the Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball, too.  After a stressful job as I try to reach dees keeds, and the shenanigans that happened just down the street Continue reading Cubs Happenings Since the Last Time We Had Time To Blog

A day after we lamented the Chicago Cubs losing out on some hardware (but who cares, they kinda won something bigger anyway), the Most Valuable Player awards were announced.  It was nice to have so many Cubs recognized for their achievements even if they didn’t win, including Theo Epstein, who Continue reading A Cubs MVP, With Sparkle

One major issue I have with the way the MLB awards shows have been presented lately is how they have to just drag everything out.  It takes an entire hour to figure out who won.  The talking heads keep doing their South Park Canadian mouth-flapping, the finalists have to do their Continue reading These Awards Shows…

We’re days away from the latest movie in the Harry Potter franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.  A good number of us are Harry Potter fans, and my son has gone as Harry Potter with authentic robe and wand two Halloweens running.  After the last Cubs story in Continue reading Albert Almora and the Chamber of Prospects – A Cubs Story In Pictures

Do you remember last offseason, when the Chicago Cubs were very well represented in the awards shows?  This November, there are even more Cubs players and staff up for some hardware, and at some point we probably have to track Theo Epstein’s Hall of Fame case, too.  After all, he Continue reading Cubs All Over the Awards Landscape

This post idea stemmed from an admission from the New York Times that they had a contingency cover in place for if the Chicago Cubs would have lost the World Series (spoiler: they didn’t lose): Well, being that the Cubs just slayed goats and curses and all manners of other Continue reading Fun With the Cubs and Photoshop

It has been a few days since the Chicago Cubs won the World Series, and I am still flying as high as ever. This was a day I knew would happen one day, but I was never sure when that day would come. But today, we Cubs fans stand united Continue reading A World Series Dream Come True
