Old poster checking in here - thank you for keeping the party rolling for 15 years Tim.

Well I think a lot of the old posters left. People here became [expletive] and some of the best guys left. There are still some good folks here but frankly I rarely ever post anything here anymore because of the way things have gone here. It's sad I used to love these boards. Mostly I come here for Ct, Tiger and Raisin and how great the minor league forums are/have been. Outside of that I mainly just lurk these days and I've been around since the beginning. This series was incredible and one I'll never forget. I think we are going to get much deeper before it's over and maybe we win it all.

Schwarber HR is staying on top of the board. Awesome.

How much extra did Budweiser pay for that decision?

I reject your false choice. Bask in dong glory while simultaneously basking in NLCS glory.

2 months of awful for a 21 year old rookie with a great minor league track record is a lot different from sucking donkey nuts for the better part of 3 years for an experienced major leaguer.

(and, to steal a kyle-ism, this is not me spiking the football on baez in any way whatsoever)

I'm the same way. I lurked here for a while before I even registered my username, but then got frustrated with the negativity (which I've since learned is NOT even close to being exclusive here). Been around several other boards and really loved the discussion on /r/ChiCubs, but really missed it here. Came back here at various points over the summer to lurk and am loving the discussion and banter so far during the playoffs.

Huge kudos to Tim for keeping this place going through some really dark times for Cubs fans.

Its going to stay on that board until the wind blows it off. I dont see any obstruction towards the sides or the edge...

and then right after typing that I read this part of the article:

The Cubs will put a plexiglass case around it for now to preserve it from the elements.

When there's no games they should have spotlights shining on it at all times.

I called my dad last night because he's back at our place in Chicago to go to both of the home games and the apartment is, like, 3 blocks from Stanley's. Told him to head over but he opted for drunken sleep like an old man. When I'm back there in the next couple of weeks I'm gonna be staking that place out.

So I turned on 10pm Sportscenter, and they showed some Cubs teases, and had the background all Cubbie....and then said "but first lets talk about NY/LA".

So they did that, I stuck around....they did the worst voice overs on the Cubs highlights...and then afterwards said "we'll have a lot more on baseball later in the show, especially from NY".

Mlb network was way better last night with Dan pleasac and the go cubs go song during many parts of the broadcast. Espn has been dead to me since the bears were good because you know to them defense is boring

I'd bet we have the night game each time they overlap. No way they're choosing Toronto/Houston/Texas/KC over Chicago and either NY or LA for prime time.
