Ry-Noooooooooooooooooooo

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Well, well, well. Those a-holes from St. Louis are already back at it. Just days after I clearly warned the universe that I would blow it up in the case that this happened, the St. Louis Cardinals confirmed that Ryne Sandberg will be one of "less than 10 candidates" interviewed for the ...

Epstein to Chicago Apparently A Thing

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

So will they end up calling it The Curse of Theo, or The Curse of Tito? According to media reports from all corners of the country -- well, maybe not the southwest corner -- Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein to the Cubs is essentially a done deal. It's just another ...

Catching Hell; Feeling Shame

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

I'm embarrassed. Hopefully we're all embarrassed. Because we're just as human as he is.

Monday, December 6th, 2010

For three days, I have struggled to figure out how to write this blog post. This is what I finally came up with. It wasn't a surprise when I woke up to the texts on Friday morning. Ron Santo, the face -- or at least the soul -- of the Cubs ...

Eat Sh*t, Theriot

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

When former Cub fan favorite Ryan Theriot was traded to the Cardinals from the Dodgers on Tuesday, the response amongst myself and friends was a universal "Shit." Even if he hits .120 against every other opponent next season, none of us had any doubt in our minds that Theriot will bat ...

Quade, Quade We Likes to Poddy

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

So, the Cubs hired Mike Quade to be their manager for the next two seasons and the immediate reaction amongst Cub fans has not been to shoot off fireworks and start playing the 1812 Overture. (Which is the perfect song of celebration since 1812 is closer to the last Cubs ...
