Name Tags Will Be A Must At Cubs Convention

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Theocracies rely on the belief in a higher power. And after weeks of roster shaving and tinkering, I'm being forced to put an awful lot of faith in what Theo Epstein has planned for my beloved Chicago Cubs. "Who are these f*ckin' guys?"

Don’t Shoot the Messenger

Monday, June 6th, 2011

The beauty of the Chicago Cubs is the simplicity of their design. Just when you think they've lost in the crappiest way you could ever imagine, they find a way to do something even worse the very next day. That was the case on Sunday, as the Cubs got swept by ...

Let the Doomsday Count Begin

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

As has been posted here before, we're not immune to believing in curses around here, no matter how crazy they may seem. This is especially true when it comes to the Chicago Cubs. Many of us are true Cubs fans, not just the beer toting, partying variety. Now, the Cubs have the ...

Chris Young Deserves To Be An All-Star

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

Now I know I'm a total homer Padre fan, but I was looking at the list for the "Fan Vote" for the final slot on the N.L. All-Star team today and I don't understand why this is even a competition. At last count, San Diego's Chris Young was barely holding ...
