Bud, it's almost spring. For some reason I expect the fountain of youth will come into all our lives.

Well, for entertainment's sake, I hope this Super Bowl isn't over in about 10 minutes. The way Cam Newton and the Panthers just ruined the Arizona Cardinals last week was... I mean if you're a giant Carolina fan I guess... Continue reading

I never remember to turn it off after spring training. But after there's no reason... It's SO DUMB that it blacks out games in Chicago.

Did not know that, Bud. Weird.

Yeah, no chance right? But it's such a nice story. Honestly, not a week ago I was going to do a post about how the Matt Murtons can't play on the North side any more. Then this..

Maybe he's like a Billy Beane guy and we just never knew it!

I'm sitting in the office, swamped. This one producer, Luke, walks by and shouts, "Matt Murton!" Gives a thumbs up and keeps walking. What the hell? I Google. It's the Forgotten Cub, suddenly remembered. Of all the things that could... Continue reading

SIXTY EIGHT DAYS! Damn Rich, you just made my day. And I promise this'll happen: Contreras gets a start behind the plate. I'm in the stands. He throws somebody out. I stand and yell "AU CONTRAIRE!" as loud as I can. A couple people turn and look at me. I hear someone say, "What did he say?" I get embarrassed and go buy a beer.

It's so awesome looking forward to things rather than the way we were.

This Cub Pipeline is freaking me out. Russell, Bryant, Soler, Shwarber all come up and don't just stick... they became actual guys. But looking at the pipeline last year, there seemed to be some holes. Mostly starting pitching, but also... Continue reading

LOVE these kinds of stories! Maybe we've all been secretly doing it, Rich.

5 days ago, USA Today ranked the Cubs as the team with the best starting pitching staff in baseball. Ummm... what language is that? Because I've never seen those words before. For sure I've never said anything like that out... Continue reading

Do you remember that play? Can you believe how cool the internet is? Because you could be at a bar somewhere trying to explain that and nobody would believe you. Just... awesome.

Good GOD THIS IS GOING TO BE SO COOL. I cannot wait to savor every W, Donna. Plus, all the cool things that'll happen as we watch the team form. Spring hurry!

I'm SO GLAD to hear you say that, Kevin. Sometimes I think I'm nuts. To me, up until last year and what's going on now, 2003 was my personal fav best year ever as a Cub fan. That's not a looking forward to thing. Even with the painful end, that's a look back at the year thing. And 2004. Shit man. It was in the bag. Except for what you bring up.

This isn't about looking back on a Cubs season and judging it that way. LIke in '96 when the Cubs were 74-72 on September 13th but then lost 14 out of 16 including sweeps by the Cards and Reds and... Continue reading

Hi Rich. As we get closer to the bowl I'm sure we'll see a billion "future vs past" headlines. And that's a good story too. But you're right - Cam's the man.

Ouch. Oh well, the Cards still have a rosy future.

After that white knuckle Broncos vs Pats game, the absolute destruction of the Arizona Cardinals by the Carolina Panthers was almost hard to watch. The Panthers don't look like a team merely getting hot at the right time, they look... Continue reading

This gif pretty much tells the story so I don't really need to write much. I try to keep my Bears' Anger in check, but it bleeds out all the time. Anyway, there really is good football to watch today.... Continue reading
