The End of the Season, But Not the End of the Line for These Cubs

Share Button

When the Cubs avoided the sweep, I had hoped that they could force the NLCS to go back to Los Angeles before a near inevitable elimination.  Alas, it was not to be in 2017, as the 0-3 deficit proved too much to overcome. It wasn’t just the series deficit, but Continue reading The End of the Season, But Not the End of the Line for These Cubs

Left For Dead, Cubs Show Signs of Life

Perhaps it was because of the grind from having to battle the Washington Nationals to the brink last week, but the Chicago Cubs have not been playing well all series long as they went down 0-3 in the NLCS.  This is, of course, their third NLCS in a row, and Continue reading Left For Dead, Cubs Show Signs of Life

The 2017 Postseason is Set

Share Button

We as Cubs fans have been relaxing all weekend, but there will be very little suspense on Sunday, and no game 163 this year.  That’s because on Saturday night, the seedings were officially decided, and Sunday’s games are just for the fans now. In the American League, because the Houston Continue reading The 2017 Postseason is Set

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

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

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

NLCS Game 5: Wagons East

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
