The Bobblehead Beatdown!

Share Button

Once upon a time in May, before I lost my job, we were going to get ourselves some bobbleheads in the one Wrigley Field game we could afford to go to as a family.  Alas, the Chicago Cubs called the game early, the Milwaukee Brewers complained, and it was pushed Continue reading The Bobblehead Beatdown!

More Offerings at Wrigley Field if You’re a Rich Bastard

Recently, I looked at some fixes Major League Baseball might consider to improve the pace of play.  This has the added effect of keeping fans interested and overall increasing the enjoyment of the game, at least in my opinion.  Grabbing casual fans’ attention can only improve the sport. Of course, as Continue reading More Offerings at Wrigley Field if You’re a Rich Bastard

Welcome Back Dexter Fowler, Thanks For Losing

Share Button

You may have gotten a chance to listen to our Dreamcast already, but if not, give it a listen and rate etc.  Anyway, it’s been a somber week or so as the Chicago Cubs have been floundering quite a bit, for reasons that aren’t exactly clear.  The nice thing is Continue reading Welcome Back Dexter Fowler, Thanks For Losing

Dreamcast 10: Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

Share Button

After a successful home stand, the Chicago Cubs go on the road to the West Coast and try to continue their recent hot streak.  We take the opportunity to talk about: That stupid rainout last Saturday that robbed us (temporarily) of Cubs baseball and bobbleheads; Jason Heyward getting screwed on Continue reading Dreamcast 10: Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

Things I Think About on a Cubs Off Day

Share Button

As the Chicago Cubs enjoy their off day while in transit to Cincinnati to play the Mighty Reds (who as of this moment are in a bit of an offensive funk of their own), I enjoyed a very nice baseball weather day of my own.  It was in the mid-60s Continue reading Things I Think About on a Cubs Off Day

Hello Cubs fans!  After Anno went to Wrigley Field on Monday night to check out the banner ceremony (you can listen to that here), our friend Crawly got to be an actual ring bearer as the 2016 World Series champions received their sweet new championship rings.  You can check out Continue reading Dreamcast 4: Put a Ring On It

The Cubs Ring Ceremony (VIDEO)

The Chicago Cubs got their rings on Wednesday night, and while the game didn’t go quite so well, the ceremony itself was very welcome, and much needed for a fan base starved of glory for a full century: Your browser does not support iframes. I guess I finally found out Continue reading The Cubs Ring Ceremony (VIDEO)

The Cubs Get Their Rings!

After Monday night’s banner ceremony and walk-off victory, the Chicago Cubs players got their World Series championship rings on the field before Wednesday night’s game.  We got a hint of what they would look like: What a tease. pic.twitter.com/ITPk3XydxT — Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) April 12, 2017 It was a really Continue reading The Cubs Get Their Rings!

Hello there, Cubs fans!  Since the last episode of the Dreamcast, the defending World Series champions have played a week-plus of games that count.  Here’s what we talked about this time: Thanks to Rich for the Dreamcast’s theme song (see below) & Randall for the radio clip, need to remember Continue reading Dreamcast 3: There’s No Place Like Home

Worth the Wait

Share Button

Last night was something Chicago Cubs fans waited 108 years for; what was another two hours? When images of the newly installed flag poles came around, I had an idea of what to expect. One would fly the flags for the years they made the playoffs, one for flags they Continue reading Worth the Wait
