We’re a three-game series from the Chicago Cubs–nay, the defending WORLD SERIES CHAMPION Chicago Cubs–returning triumphantly to Wrigley Field. And it will be a different Wrigley Field than in seasons past, as many improvements have been implemented before the home opener on Monday. We will discuss them in more depth Continue reading Countdown to the Home Opener and the New Wrigley Field!
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!

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!
The Chicago Cubs open the Cactus League exhibition season with split-squad action against the Bay Area teams. While we’re waiting, the scribes of Chicago sports media are working tirelessly to give us random bits of news. On James Shields and Joe Maddon I guess Patrick Mooney was hanging around the Continue reading Pre-Cactus League Opener Cubs Thoughts
It’s Sunday, the day after Valentine’s Day, or as some would call it: Post by O Hell Nawl Blog. Ha! With less than a week to go before Chicago Cubs pitchers and catchers report (some of the boys are already in camp, by the way), let’s look at some quick Continue reading Sunday Clickbait
