You know, the Chicago Cubs lost the first game last series, too.  That ended up okay.  Let’s hear what Joe Maddon had to say: Your browser does not support iframes. I didn’t watch the game because I don’t have cable, but I did listen to the radio and followed along Continue reading The Aftermath: NLCS Game 1, Cubs Come Up Short

That Felt Great!

Going into this year, if they were honest, most Chicago Cubs fans would have told you that they would have been happy with a .500 record after three years of crap. At 97 wins, the Cubs fans considered this a “bonus year” as they were assumed to have arrived into Continue reading That Felt Great!

That was FUN

Hey kids!  The Chicago Cubs are leading the NLDS 2-1 over the Cardinals now!  On a night when Jake Arrieta wasn’t exactly at his best, the offense exploded for an 8-6 victory while holding back a late charge by the Cards.  In this victory, the Cubs set a new postseason Continue reading That was FUN

Highlights from the first Cubs postseason win in a while (yes, it counts)

Share Button

The Chicago Cubs have won their first postseason game since 2003.  It was a nice game to listen to on the radio (darn lack of cable) but thank goodness for highlights!  It’s too bad they didn’t embed the solid defensive plays, (there were more) but we got the fireworks… Kyle Continue reading Highlights from the first Cubs postseason win in a while (yes, it counts)

I love baseball and I love baseball fans. But baseball fans are a funny bunch always looking for signs that their team is going to do well, or in line for something special.  We saw this in 2008 with my fellow Chicago Cubs fans. Everything was the first time since Continue reading Signs That the Cubs Have Some Baseball Magic on Their Side?

Arrogant? Nah, That is Called Confidence

For the past week or so, I have been getting grief from a rival fan about my (and my follow Chicago Cub fans) confidence heading into the Wild Card game against Pittsburgh. I would understand this if the fan were a St. Louis Cardinals fan or even a Chicago White Continue reading Arrogant? Nah, That is Called Confidence

Starlin “#0haters” Castro

Anybody that follows the Cubs on the daily know that Starlin Castro is on an absolute tear lately. Since being benched, Starlin has come to life and has adapted to his less involved role. He had to watch a 21 year old take the spot he has ruled over since Continue reading Starlin “#0haters” Castro

Wake Me Up When September Ends

The Chicago Cubs won again on the last night of September, marking yet another winning month in a surprising-yet-not-surprising season. Cubs will be 19-9 in Sept. Had a winning month each month of the season. That's impressive. Especially those first few — Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) October 1, 2015 I had Continue reading Wake Me Up When September Ends

Cardinal-like Cubs Surging Toward October

One of the few simple truths about Cubs fans is that they hate the Cardinals.  That hatred is bred through the smug arrogance of the “best fans in baseball”, the way it seems like the Cardinals get all the calls to go their way, every BABIP flare that some guy Continue reading Cardinal-like Cubs Surging Toward October
