Electoral fun with the Cubs

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

As a Cubs fan, you don't need to remind me that 1908 was a long time ago. That year is so far off, it is more of a concept than a concrete entity. It's almost impossible to grasp just how remarkably different the world was the last time the Cubs ...

Ding-dong, the Cards are dead!

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

Finally, our long national nightmare is over. The St. Louis Cardinals are no more, and with their elimination comes a feeling of satisfaction I didn't know was possible from a baseball game. I'm not exaggerating. All over the world, people are raised with an irrational, irreversible hatred for certain creeds, religions or ...

Adam Greenberg’s redemption stirs memories

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

Everyone remembers where they were for the major moments in life. JFK, the Challenger, 9/11 -- if you were alive, you've got a story.

Everyone knows the Chicago Cubs own the most embarrassing streak in pro sports -- 104 years without a championship and counting. But it is not until nights like Tuesday that we are reminded the Cubs also own the coolest streak in pro sports -- 7,441 consecutive games with a hit ...

British Gymnasts Snap Skid; Offer Hope

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

There is hope, Cubs fans. And not just because Geovany Soto was traded for something more valuable than a bag of weed. This hope comes from a bunch of Brits wearing leotards. Another group that has gone quite a long time without winning anything ended its own streak of futility on Monday ...

Cubs Prospect Jorge Soler Goes Deep In Pro Debut

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

So that's what $30 million sounds like. Chicago Cubs super prospect Jorge Soler made his professional debut Sunday night for the AZL Cubs. It went well. Soler, 20, went 2-for-4 with a 2-run blast. The sound of the ball coming off the bat is music to my ears. Not bad for his second ...
