Rambling about the Cubs as the Dog Days Begin

Hello again, everybody. There have been ramblings on Mondays, on Tuesdays, on Wednesdays, on Thursdays, and on Fridays … but never has there ever been ramblings on a Saturday! I don’t mean to shock your system, but it is a shock to mine as well. A weekend Ramblings! With that said, there really is not […]

Rambling about the Cubs as Cole Hamels Comes to Town

Hello again, everybody.  I do not mean to shock your systems with a Thursday Ramblings, but my travel schedule combined with an off day for the Cubs led to a perfect scenario where we can ramble, rumble and ramble some more on a thoroughly thirsty Thursday for many thirty-somethings … and hopefully a thoroughly enjoyable […]

Rambling about the Cubs as the Second Half Commences

Hello again, everybody. It was a fun week for baseball fans as the Midsummer Classic caught the attention of the sporting world the first few days of the week. I, like most, absolutely loved the new approach to Home Run Derby. The clock was just great, and in a game where clocks never existed, maybe […]

Rambling About the Cubs as the Pale Hose Arrive on the Right Side

Hello again, everybody. Wow, that would have been one heck of a game to have on Wednesday night, but with the way the Cardinals have been going, splitting four games almost feels like a sweep. Now that the All-Star Break is almost upon us, it would be very nice for the Cubs to take care […]

Rambling about the Cubs as the USA Celebrates a Birthday

Hello again, everybody. It was very nice to see the Cubs bounce back strong from a five-game losing streak and sweep the Mets on the road. This quick turnaround exemplifies why the Cubs of 2015 are vastly different than many of their recent versions. During the past few years, the Cubs would turn a five-game […]

Rambling About the Cubs with September in Sight

Hello again, everybody. It has been a few weeks now, but we are back in the saddle on this fine Friday morning. While the past two losses have been quite disappointing, winning four in a row was a nice treat. This team is loose, it’s having fun, it’s got each other’s backs, and most importantly, […]

Rambling about the Cubs and a Bat-Flipping Fool

Hello again, everybody. It’s been another up and down week for the Cubs, but thanks to one shortsighted play, tensions flared and benches cleared. However, it appears Mr. Junior realized the error of his ways rather quickly and apologized profusely, which is good. And while he made be very laid back, it was good to […]

Rambling About the Cubs During the Growth Spurts

Hello again, everybody. I hope all is well with all. Given certain schedules, an off day today, and an afternoon soiree at Wrigley on Friday, we thought we would just catch everyone off guard and with Ramblings … on a THURSDAY! [Insert Hollywood-esque gasping sound for effect] So, now that the shock has worn off, […]

Rambling as the Cubs are Finding an Identity

Hello again, everybody. The weather is warming, the flowers are blooming, but unlike spring times of the past, the Cubs are not swooning. No, this year’s team is starting to show what fans have patiently waited for since 2008. It is May 22, and folks, the Chicago Cubs have a winning record. If this is […]

Rambling About the Cubs While Waving My Broom

Hello again, everybody! It is nice to be back, and it is even nicer to be writing about the Cubs sweeping a four-game series. And this was not a normal four-gamer; this was against the Mighty Mets who rode into town with an impressive 20-11 record. Well, thanks to the Cubbies you can add four […]
