Rambling About the Cubs Ineptitude

Hello again, everybody. It’s been a seesaw of a week for the Cubs. I think Paula Abdul said it best in her song “Opposites Attract, “I take two steps forward, I take two steps back …” Yes, for the record, I just went Paula Abdul on everyone, and if that doesn’t date me, I am […]

Rambling About the Cubs While Hoping for a New Day

Hello again, everybody. It is just not getting any better. Maybe it will, but it is rough right now. Yes, this is Captain Obvious saying ‘hello.’ There was a legion of fans supporting Tom, Theo and Jed, but that group is winnowing, and the sharks are out in full force now. It’s an interesting conversation […]

Rambling About the Cubs While Wondering If It Will Ever Get Better

Hello again, everybody. The weekend got off to a good start. The Cubs were close to finishing it out with a four-game winning streak, but the Cardinals salvaged the Sunday Night game, and then it got stupid.

Rambling about the Cubs as the Season Takes Hold

We are nine games into the season, and while 3-6 sounds bad, and well, is bad, there have been some bright spots and solid performances that have many Cubs fans slugging some light-blue kool aid right about now. There have also been plenty of frustrating moments as well, which is a given with a 3-6 […]

Rambling While the Cubs Home Opener Awaits

Sure, three games have been played, but the real Opening Day is the home opener.  And that, as every single person reading this site right now already knows, is today.  The bunting will adorn the brick, the players will be introduced, the rain will fall heavily, and the fans will convene in the restrooms.

Rambling as the Cubs Regular Season is Here

Opening Day is Monday, the days are longer, the weather is warmer and the dawn of a new day … is still a year away for Cubs baseball. However, I do expect the Cubs to be noticeably improved from last year with some of the new blood and energy arriving at 1060 W. Addison.   […]

Rambling about the Cubs While Dreaming of the Dog Days

Hello again, everybody. I know it sounds funny to be dreaming of the dog days of summer, but this Chicago winter wins. It wins more than any winter I can remember, and it wins more than the Yankees, the Cowboys, Duke and Notre Dame combined. That would be Notre Dame, pre-1990. I don’t care what […]
