Friday Headlines: Anybody Want to Talk about Anything?

NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 30: The Times Square New Year s Eve Ball is tested the day before New Year's Eve December 30, 2010 in New York City. The 11,875-pound Waterford crystal ball will descend a 141-foot tall flagpole to mark the beginning of 2011. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)

Julie is fleeing the country, there's nothing going on with the Cubs and Snooki's not going to be dropped in a ball in Times Square. What does that leave us to talk about? Precious little. But if there's something you've just been dying to share with us, please feel free to open up the discussion in the comments. Otherwise it'll be a long New Year's Eve. Unless Jim Hendry pulls something out of his sleeve like he has the last two years. Please, Jim, do it for us.

So is "Heartscubs" really your middle name, Carl? Wow. Cool.

It worked out well, eh? I figure since Julie went legit and Pete's got a real name, I should, too. But I hate to get rid of my Cub blog roots.

But do you have a tatoo with a heart or the Cubs?

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

Both, but I can't post the pictures on this site.

Just because Julie isn't here doesn't mean it hurts any less when people don't comment on my thread. I guess it's partly my fault since I put the responsibility on the reader.

1. CN finally let me in just now.
2. Maybe the name change is scaring people. They think the blog is getting all fancy now...

Pending a physical. Suppose he's willing to DH?

Don't give Edelwiess an opening....

Derrek Lee is too dignified a guy to make double entendre jokes about. Its more fun to make jokes about hairy-ass Blake DeWitt, or singed-ass Jeff Baker, who give anyone an opening. Todd Ricketts has banned all clubhouse hijinks , so there will be very little to report on. By the way, the biggest instigater was NOT Ryan Dempster, but Ted Lilly, who is long gone.
Feliz año nuevo.

Happy New Year fron cold but sunny So Cal!
The only way Dee Lee is going to play is as a DH-I just don't see the Birds using him everyday otherwise. Unless I'm just being a cynic-guess I've been hanging with Sloan too long!

Happy New Year as well from here. I agree about D-Lee. The guy looked like the Tin Man at times last year out in the field. I think those "neck spasms" are more like back issues.
