Rambling as Summer Officially Begins

Hello again, everybody.  While it may be true that summer officially begins today, the Cubs’ performance of late makes me yearn for the break of Fall. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve bored you with my stream of consciousness, but it’s Friday, and it’s about time I start throwing random thoughts out there and […]

Rambling While … Serenity Now, Serenity Now!!

No need to blow smoke, let’s just go.

Rambling While Hanging in the Basement

After staring at a blank computer screen for quite some time trying to find the words to describe this season thus far, I realized that a blank piece of paper sums up the first 13 games better than anything else. Seriously though, the team is bad. I have just one question. Did any of you […]

Rambling as the Second Half is Under Way

Wasn’t that nice? What a great break. Three full days used to wash away the stain of a pitiful, pathetic and, well, piss-poor first half of the Cubs’ season. If it could have gone wrong for the Cubs, it did. From head-scratching decisions to abysmal performance on the field, the first half was an awful […]

Rambling about the Comeback, yet the Reality

Don’t call it a comeback!! Holy wow. It was fun to be a Cubs fan last night. Yes, you read that right. It was fun to be a Cubs fan. It reminded me of 1989. The Cubs were down 9-0 to the Houston Astros. The game was out of reach and a run away from […]

Rambling from the Bottom of the Barrel

The Cubs won a baseball game Wednesday afternoon. When this happened, I just figured my television was broken, and I wasn’t seeing accurate information. However, after combing the interwebs for information, I finally realized the prior information was true. The Cubs had, indeed, won a baseball game. That paragraph perfectly sums up my view of […]

A Side of Cubs Trivia for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at the CCO! Today is a day of food, spending time with family and friends, and dozing off in front of the big screen watching football. Just in case you need your daily ‘Cubs fix’, here are several bits of useless information on the Chicago National League Ball Club, Inc. So […]

Rambling While Worrying About Who’s Playing First

With just over 90 days until pitchers and catchers report, the hot stove is about to step it up to a strong simmer before the full-blown boil of the Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Some refer to it as Disney World. During Hendry’s tenure, the Cubs have been players in the off-season, but […]

Another Week … Cubs Still a Joke

I am rambling today. That’s right. This has become such a joke, I don’t think I can concentrate on the Cubs long enough to come up with more than one complete sentence or half of a complete thought. I know this is very pathetic, but it is because the Cubs are rubbing off on me, […]

Rambling About a Below Average Baseball Team

The Chicago Cubs baseball team is not good. Yes, I know, I am very observant. Watching this team lose five of six games to the Pirates and Reds caused the type of emotional pain normally reserved for the end of a romantic relationship. That is how bad it felt. I wanted to break up with […]
