Share Button

It’s still a bit over a month before the Chicago Cubs return to Wrigley Field for their home opener, and already we’ve had at least two teams (or at least their fan bases) being a bit salty: For the first time in a long time, it’s the Cubs leading the Continue reading Checking In With the Cubs and Wrigley Field

While we sit at home watching the Cubs try to win another home series, Anno is enjoying his season tickets at the Friendly Confines.  I asked him to snap a few pictures since I won’t likely be there until late May or June at the earliest.  Maybe next time he’ll Continue reading Views of Wrigley Field

Hey guys!  It’s Rice 1, Anno 0 for Team WSD Cubs games!  Woo! Yeah, the Chicago Cubs defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in the opening series finale, temporarily tying the series until the rainout is made up sometime later (not a terrible thing).  Thanks to Ed Nickow for giving Rice Continue reading Dreamcast 47: Cubs Win!

I was busy trying to catch up with my TV viewing this week, plus family time, plus baseball, plus teaching…you know, life stuff…so we only did snippets of the story where a federal judge denied the rooftops’ request for a preliminary injunction: The ruling by U.S. District Judge Virginia Kendall Continue reading The One Where the Rooftops Pretty Much Gave Up (UPDATE)

It’ll be like watching the game on a big TV while you’re at the game!

Tonight, in between watching Cubs Twitter own Darren Rovell and the Christian Yelich extension (which Kris Bryant likely won’t do for the Chicago Cubs so he’ll have to work on stuff in Iowa), we saw a few items that demonstrated how truly large the Wrigley Field video replay board in left Continue reading It’ll be like watching the game on a big TV while you’re at the game!

I’m sure most of you are happily digesting your dinners right now, so maybe you can relax with a book…or with this smorgasbord of random baseball tidbits.
