The Long Goodbye

Nearly 10 years ago, this blog was formed primarily to trumpet the idea that the Cubs were not a team destined to fail. That, in fact, a century of losing was not a promise of more failure to come. We still believe in this — the Cubs will win, and it will be someday soon,... Read more »

Don't miss the point on the 2012 Cubs

Thoughts from the Ass End of Night: So I’m up early on a Sunday morning, as ordered by the powers that be at my place of occupation.
