So, the Chicago Cubs ended the season having earned the right to play at home in the first round of the playoffs… …and then proceeded to join the rest of their Central division brethren in going 0-for-7 in the postseason. Which, yes, means that the division series will only have Continue reading The Morning After
Boy, you think the Cubs had turned a corner, and then suddenly they drop a key series to the literal worst team in MLB. Naturally it is easy to think that if this were an actual 162 game season without a pandemic lurking, this set of Cubs would be blown Continue reading An Industrial Sized Chill Pill
The Chicago Cubs had themselves a very interesting series win against division rival Milwaukee, and the final game between the two teams this season did not disappoint…if you’re a Cubs fan, that is: At this point, the Cubs have 12 games remaining with a 28-20 record.

I’m not just talking about the pandemic, either, as we have also seen social upheavals both domestic and international rock our neighborhoods and headlines. Perhaps it is appropriate, then, that we Continue reading Celebrate Freedom
