Why do we laugh and derive amusement from so many different things: puns, fails, jokes and gags gone wrong? For most its a way to relieve stress, bring happiness to ourselves and others. But for some its a way to be cruel, insensitive, degrading and rude. Today during a press conference with the Carolina Panthers,... Read more »

Take a tour of Wrigley Field

Last week I embraced my inner tourist. I took my first EVER tour of the historic and beautiful Wrigley Field. While I knew most of the history our tour guide so energetically rattled off, the thing that blew me away more than anything else was the emptiness of the ballpark. It absolutely took my breath...

Want to go to a Cubs game this season? It will cost you

I’m not the first and I won’t be the last to complain about Wrigley Field and most MLB ticket prices. I may not be a 95-year-old man who remembers when tickets were less than 5 cents and milk was even cheaper than that, but I am someone who USED to be able to afford several games... Read more »

Is John Fox the one to lead the Bears?

I’ll be the first person to admit it, I’m not happy with the Chicago Bears 2016 season. If you can even call a 3-13 record a season. I suppose a handful of Chicagoans are buying into the idea of rookie development, Jay Cutler being well…Cutler and the overwhelming amount of injuries directly impacting the success... Read more »

What I am thankful for this year

Its that time of year again. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is on the TV, children are screaming and someone forgot the yams. As I sit beside my friends and loved ones in a Hampton Inn and Suites in Scottsbluff, Neb. I realize the much anticipated holiday season is upon us. With a food baby... Read more »

Thank you for standing by me

Now that I’ve had the night to pinch myself, I can finally believe that the Cubs have won the World Series. At this time I want to thank a few Cubs fans in my life and family members for letting me act like a complete lunatic for the last 24-years. To my father, Dale Hamblin,... Read more »
