The title of this one is a reference not only to the Chicago Cubs, but also to the fact that I haven’t blogged in a while and figured I should probably set up some kind of work-life balance to try to squeeze something out on a regular basis. Perhaps starting Continue reading A New Beginning…?
This is Fourth of July weekend, and it is a different experience than any of us have ever had. I’m not just talking about the pandemic, either, as we have also seen social upheavals both domestic and international rock our neighborhoods and headlines. Perhaps it is appropriate, then, that we Continue reading Celebrate Freedom
After a very long hiatus, Rice returns with a new edition of the Dreamcast to ring in the 2019 season, with guest star Crawly hanging out with us. You should check out his stuff too. Our itinerary: The very weird lack of action by the Cubs this winter so far; Continue reading Dreamcast 45: The Return
Well, here we are in August, and we are stuck in Lincoln, Nebraska, because the stupid car decided to run into a mechanical problem. Thankfully it’s not the engine this time! It’s kind of funny how we are saying goodbye to Chicago just as the Cubs return home for seemingly Continue reading Home Cooking

We weren’t actually going to shut the blog down despite the Easter Sunday gag, but it would be cool if you guys would read it anyway because our continued existence kind of depends on you, too. Mostly us, because this is a hobby and we don’t charge, but a little Continue reading New Wrigley Field Stuff
Kyle Hendricks got in some work in the final Cubs Cactus League game before they play the Red Sox in Florida for a couple extra tuneup games prior to Thursday’s Opening Day contest against the Marlins. I assume he was just working on some nibbling, as he issued his first Continue reading Cactus League Ends, Cubs Roster Takes Shape
This is the day I have both been waiting for and dreading the arrival of. Today is the day my season tickets for the 2018 Chicago Cubs season arrived. If you have been a fan of ours for a while, you know that I share a season ticket package with Continue reading Season Ticket Day
