Answer to Cubs woes was in the Cards

Answer to Cubs woes was in the Cards
            When I last left our north side heroes, they were coming off a disastrous Anchorman themed road trip that had seen them lose all 6 games.  The Cubs came home Friday in desperate need off a pick me up.  Thankfully they got it. The Cubs won Friday’s game on the... Read more »

  The big story in the sports world is the NBA Finals finally started.  Is it just ne, or does it seem like the time between the NBA finals and semi-finals is longer than the time between Star Wars sequels?  Anyway, the Warriors had a relatively easy time in game one with a 113-91 win. ...

Chris Sale is great, but he needed to change Sox

As I’m writing this, the Red Sox lead the White Sox 10-6.  The starting pitchers were Chris Sale and Jose Quintana.  Sale was roughed up for 6 runs in 5 innings.  Jose Quintana got his butt kicked again, giving up 7 runs in 2.2 innings.  Jose must really want to stay in Chicago because he’s killing...

Cubs Anchorman trip not funny so far

Well Cubs fans, I keep hearing  that it’s early in the season, and the Cubs will come around.  It’s not that early and I’m not so sure all the Cubs will come around.  I say this after a couple of more Cubs losses in LA.  The Cubs were shut out 4-0 Friday night and 5-0... Read more »

Prune or Cheese, which nickname is the best for White Sox Tyler Danish?
        The monsoon season has apparently hit Chicago, so game one off the Tigers-White Sox doubleheader has been rained out and game two has been delayed.  Meanwhile, the Cubs are on a road trip out to LA and I probably can’t stay up late enough to write anything about the game.  That...
