It's the top of the 8th in Game 6 of the NLDS, and I give. It's the last game of 2017 for our favorite team. They're down a grand slam + 5 other runs by the Los Angeles Dodgers. I... Continue reading

Happy Hendricks Day indeed! I'll catch up on reading once winter starts, and I don't expect that to happen for another couple weeks if you know what I mean. But I'm ALWAYS looking for a cool read so gracias!

It's KILLING me. The swinging at first pitches. Swinging at pitches over your head. Seeing jokey tweets like "Matt Sczcur, please send a bat". This whole NLCS could change in the blink of a Ben Zobrist double. An Anthony Rizzo... Continue reading

I know. There ISN'T anybody else. But even if there was, even if the whole team was rested and ready to go, Jon Lester would be the right guy for Game 2. He's the guy with the shoulders that carry.... Continue reading

Donna, what is the name of the thingy that delays radio broadcasts so you can line it up with the tv again? I CAN'T STAND the network guys.

I'm so spent! I'm actually glad there's no game today so I can recover. Not so for the Cubs, who's plane was diverted at 5 am to Albuquerque because a passenger had to go to the hospital. The pilots had "timed out" and another flying crew had to be brought in and they didn't take off again til 10 something. That's just cruel.

Ecchhh. No time for words, and I re-did the type on this painting but whatever. HOW AWESOME DO YOU FEEL? Or tired, you can admit it. This game was surreal and dreamlike and filled with 100s of texts that just... Continue reading

Well even though we haven't said a thing about it, enough about the 2017 NLDS Game 4. Put Game 4 in the rear view. As you may recall, I went to Game 4 of last year's World Series. While it... Continue reading

AGREED and I apologize for my detour into Strasscrap.

Well, it turns out he IS gonna pitch now. We'll find out the details later. We're thinking, because of ALL the rigamoroll, that he really DID say "no" to Dusty. But then the giant crazy backlash and he either came to his senses or Boras called and said get off your ass. What a giant bunch of crap. Anyway, now baseball is the only thing that matters.

I've been letting Twitter, which does a horrible job of cropping images, dictate painting dimensions. Twitter does well with horizontal images and crops vertical ones where there's words or a face. Anyway, it's so stupid that I let that happen to me, so it felt great to do a super tall one, and yeah the negative space makes me happy too for some reason. 3:08 on Wednesday. Weird time for playoff baseball but whatever. I'm hoping Jake performs like Scherzer did with his hammie. GO CUBS!

You heard Dusty Baker talk about there being mold in Chicago and changing hotel rooms and air conditioning. And this mold is making the entire Nationals team sick. (I googled it again, and it ought to show here, but it... Continue reading

Ha. Just saw this, Bud. And yeah, I bet nobody wants to play the Cubs. Nobody.

One was reminded of a certain Game 7 and another huge hit pretty much leading to a trophy that reads "World Series MVP". Ben Zobrist hadn't looked that great. People were talking about the lame leap at Zimmerman's homer the... Continue reading

Hi Donna, How'd that work out? Tough having to pretend it's not the most important thing going on in your head, right?

Well, we need more than KB and Rizzo. I caught the game at the wedding via at bat. Even without watching, the Harper homer still a massive gut punch. Then, Zimmerman. Eccchhhh. Oh well, today's another day.

There we were, at the wedding reception dinner, me with At Bat glowing on my phone in front of me on the table. We were assigned seats at various tables around the room, and my wife and I had never... Continue reading

I got a new computer and of course it's filled with bugs. Consequently, the art for today can't be finished, but I'll have it later I'm sure. Last night was as pleasurable a Cubs watch as I've ever had. The... Continue reading
