And the Cubs Never Lost Again

Well, the second half is underway, and methinks the Chicago Cubs are doing okay for now… #Cubs since All-Star break* 6-0 record* +27 run differential* 16 Home Runs* 2.00 starter ERA* No first inning runs allowed — Christopher Kamka (@ckamka) July 19, 2017 As we’ve talked about on the Dreamcast Continue reading And the Cubs Never Lost Again

After the Chicago Cubs got swept by the Philadelphia Phillies this weekend, including a no-hitter (which was pretty cool, to be honest), it’s easy to feel down.  We are fans of a sports team, and we are humans capable of and susceptible to emotion and kneejerk reactions.  I think it’s Continue reading So hey, I watched Ant-Man!

Win #50

With today’s victory over the Philadelphia Phillies, who were supposed to be good in Ruben Amaro Jr.’s mind, the Chicago Cubs climbed to 50-63, still a billion games behind the suddenly-we-decided-to-be-good Pittsburgh Pirates, the perennially annoyingly good St. Louis Cardinals, and the underachieving but not-all-bad Cincinnati Reds.  Normally it’s not Continue reading Win #50
