Leave Maddon Alone

I wish I had been at the Cubs Convention this weekend. My family and I were making plans to go out of town when the tickets to the Convention went on sale. Things changed, and we are actually in town, and I would have liked to have attended in this Continue reading Leave Maddon Alone

A New Year, a New Cubs Convention

Share Button

This year’s Cubs Convention will be, shall we say, unconventional.  I’m sure they’ll do their usual thing with the Opening Ceremony, the usual panels, the games for the kids, and Cubs Jeopardy and Bingo.  However, I use the word “unconventional” to mean that this will be the very first Cubs Continue reading A New Year, a New Cubs Convention

2016, When the Balls Dropped

Share Button

Depending on your perspective, 2016 could range anywhere from the best year ever (being that the Chicago Cubs did something awesome), just another year, or the worst year in recorded history.  Whatever your views on politics or celebrities, I’ve chosen to focus on the positive and to look ahead to Continue reading 2016, When the Balls Dropped

This post idea stemmed from an admission from the New York Times that they had a contingency cover in place for if the Chicago Cubs would have lost the World Series (spoiler: they didn’t lose): Well, being that the Cubs just slayed goats and curses and all manners of other Continue reading Fun With the Cubs and Photoshop

Cubs World Series: A Promise Delivered

I recall, right after the Chicago Cubs clinched the World Series title, staying awake for almost two hours before I finally willed myself to sleep.  I got up at the usual buttcrack of dawn to make it to school in time to do my teacherly duties, and it didn’t even Continue reading Cubs World Series: A Promise Delivered

Cubs Silence the Haters Forever

Share Button

Once upon a time, before the Chicago Cubs could be considered “good,” I wrote something about how we as Cubs fans will be able to strut our stuff and celebrate baseball’s ultimate prize.  It wouldn’t have been fitting for our favorite squad to do this the easy way, so of Continue reading Cubs Silence the Haters Forever

If I told you at the beginning of spring training that the Chicago Cubs would be playing November baseball, what would you say?
