Re: Fix your damn avatars and sig pics

Oh btw: I came across my wife’s high school yearbook. Some dork was so shy about asking her out that he wrote in her yearbook that he wanted her to email him. cyprior2004@yahoo.com. Oh, wait, that was me. Did she ever email? https://i.gifer.com/10t5.gif Yeah. We setup our first date through email.

Re: Work Jerks

When I first hired on with my company out of school I was put in a 6-month training program with 31 other new hires. For 6 months everybody lived at a hotel across the street from company headquarters. I was like, “no way I’m doing that.” I signed a 6-month lease for an apartment instead. 30 of the...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

During the NLCS that year, when frustrating things would happen, my wife would occasionally hand me my 4 month old daughter to hold to sort of calm me down. I noticed that whenever I was holding her, good things would happen. Of course this was coincidental, but just in case, I wasn't going to mess...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

My brother and I attended Game 6 NLCS. While driving up we discussed what we wanted to happen if we could pick. We didn’t want drama. Just a nice, easy quick lead and shutdown pitching and a giant party counting down the outs with no stress. And then that’s what happened. Best atmosphere game I’ve e...

I make my kids watch trains and nature videos on YouTube. They’re always mesmerized. Then my wife decided to start introducing cartoons for some stupid reason. They were happy. I wasn’t annoyed. Why change things?

https://twitter.com/basebailking/status/1050164359299850240 When I was 13 I was walking down the sidewalk in St Louis before a Cubs/Cardinals game. I noticed Angel Hernandez was walking towards me. I very creatively said, “Hey, Angel! You suck!” Amazing I know. But seriously, if the 13 year olds re...

I’m pretty sure it’s a Mobile Safari issue that keeps getting worse across many websites. Fangraphs was also the first place I started seeing it frequently.

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread - "On wrongs swift vengeance waits..."

https://media.giphy.com/media/oskoZyFO0II2Q/giphy.gif Yes, I know. And if we sign Harper I’m still going to be excited about it. I’m not vehemently opposed. So if you're against signing Harper then you're basically against any large contract for a significant FA. The Darvish deal can still work out...

Re: The Cardinals

For the 800th time, 94 or 95 wins is not blowing the division. Especially when it’s due in large part to one player on a different team going Barry Bonds mode. We survived Carpenter going Bonds mode, and we may survive Yelich as well. Not to mention the injuries. Nobody is blowing anything. 800 tim...
