Dreamcast 11: Stay Classy

Share Button

This episode, with Anno and Andy not available due to Rice’s stupid schedule, good ol’ Dabynsky (follow him @dabynsky) came along to guest host.  We also got Ryan Davis (@RyanQDavis) to hang out as well.  This session was so big and long (huh huh huh) that we had to split Continue reading Dreamcast 11: Stay Classy

Early Season Schedule Not Cutting Struggling Cubs Any Breaks

Share Button

The Cubs aren’t playing well.  Nobody is going to say anything different.  It’s actually pretty obvious.  And there is no question that is the single biggest contributing factor to their slow start, sitting just one game above .500 through 49 games.  Some key offensive contributors haven’t produced like they’re capable. Continue reading Early Season Schedule Not Cutting Struggling Cubs Any Breaks

So Much Cubs Glory For Those Times You’re Bored

Share Button

There were something like 16 billion articles written on the Chicago Cubs’ 2016 World Series championship run, and while those are all nice, sometimes you need to watch the highlights and relive the glory.  And if you’re in a long stretch between games, or you don’t find certain sporting events Continue reading So Much Cubs Glory For Those Times You’re Bored

Cubs Practice: Respect Bald

Share Button

Saturday was the Respect Bald event that Joe Maddon sponsors to raise money for pediatric cancer research.  It seemed that the players really got into it, as well as plenty of Chicago Cubs fans who wanted to give back to the community while getting a buzz cut. A bittersweet day. Continue reading Cubs Practice: Respect Bald

Leave Maddon Alone

I wish I had been at the Cubs Convention this weekend. My family and I were making plans to go out of town when the tickets to the Convention went on sale. Things changed, and we are actually in town, and I would have liked to have attended in this Continue reading Leave Maddon Alone

Thanks to Joe for starting this up for us, although we unfortunately couldn’t get it posted in time for it to be relevant.  So I’m just modifying this a bit to catch you up on one of the most exciting times for Chicago Cubs fans in LITERALLY ALL OUR LIFETIMES. Continue reading NLCS Recap: HOLY SHIT CUBS

NLCS Game 5: Wagons East

Share Button

The title, if you don’t know, refers to a really godawful movie that was John Candy’s swan song… I was a big John Candy fan, and he was iconic as Barf from Spaceballs and the security guard in the first Vacation movie.  But this movie was pretty bad, and I Continue reading NLCS Game 5: Wagons East

NLCS Game 4: The Rumors of Cubs Demise Were Greatly Exaggerated

Share Button

After Tuesday night’s offensive fail, it was understandable that Cubs fans would be jumping off the ledges and portending doom for this overrated team. What fans, media, and everyone else kind of forgot was that this same team was the one that racked up 103 victories over the regular season, Continue reading NLCS Game 4: The Rumors of Cubs Demise Were Greatly Exaggerated

NLCS Game 3: Mad

Share Button

Tuesday night was supposed to be different.  The Cubs were supposed to tee off on former Cubs pitcher Rich Hill, who magically figured out how to pitch well late in his career.  It didn’t happen. Jake Arrieta was supposed to throw a no-hitter.  Didn’t happen either. The offense was supposed Continue reading NLCS Game 3: Mad

With Anno at the game (season ticket holder, lucky), I guess it was up to me to hold down the fort, so here I am, posting all the stuff that he sent me from Wrigleyville and Wrigley Field itself as the Chicago Cubs went up against Clayton Kershaw.  What’s better Continue reading NLCS Game 2: All Tied Up
