I am still trying to soak all this in. Over the past two nights I have seen two great games. One ending in disappointment and one ending in celebration. Over those two nights I have gotten about five total hours of sleep. I know that the Chicago Cubs won last Continue reading Still Soaking Everything In!

The Chicago Cubs players and fans love messing with David Ross because he is the old man on the team. Even though he is only a young 39, that is kind of old for a professional athlete.

If you’re just waking up, the Chicago Cubs FINALLY beat the Milwaukee Brewers in extra innings.  And per the box score, everyone pitched in.  And if the game had gone even further, you may have seen Jake Arrieta in left field with one of the position players still on the Continue reading Don’t Run on Grandpa Rossy and Other Cubs Items

Enjoying the Ride

On a day when the weather wasn’t at its best, and neither was the Chicago Cubs’ ace, our favorite team still found a way to win, and win big.  Jake Arrieta wasn’t his usual efficient self (can’t no-hit them all the time), walking four guys and throwing way too many Continue reading Enjoying the Ride
