Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

At 3:47 PM on Monday, March 20 my wife delivered our son, Bryant. I guess I need to pick up one of these for him. Looks like I already have another Sports Illusrated to buy for his collection. https://tribwgntv.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/screen-shot-2017-03-21-at-2-00-40-pm1-e1490127140409.png?w=563

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #27)

I can generally remember what the greatest moments are that I saw from home because my very well behaved, therapy dog trained labrador growls and barks at me and stands between me and my wife like she needs to protect my wife from this crazy person that is otherwise her best friend.

Re: Most Memorable Cubs Games You've Attended

10/22/16 - Cubs win the pennant. (Third year in a row I saw a team win the pennant: Royals, Mets, Cubs). 10/29/16 - Game 4 of the World Series. Really sucked, but I still got to see a World Series game at Wrigley. 10/7/16 - NLDS Game 1. 10/8/16 - NLDS Game 2. 5/13/96 - First game at Wrigley. My dad ...

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #34)

I'm a little jealous of you rich bastards that live near Chicago and can go to these playoff games, but then again, I did get the Soriano walk-off slam in 09 and last year's Brian Matusz/Travis Wood in LF/Jon Lester walk-off bunt game, so I've had it pretty good too. I also was at the walkoff slam....

At the risk of being extremely obvious, that game is the best game I've ever attended. This game was probably generally more exciting, but watching WS Game 5 in the bleachers with the KB homer and 2 2/3 innings of nothing but tension from Chapman was absolutely nuts as well. I would imagine any hom...

Oh wow. I had no idea. I'm so glad I saw this today. The guy I played catch with on my high school team every day for three seasons passed away unexpectedly 8+ years ago. His birthday is February 29. Every time I play catch with anybody else I always think of him.

Re: will schwarbs put another one on top of the RF video board in 2017

Yeah. Not serious. That HR Sosa hit in the NLCS was 490' and it wasn't even close to hitting the scoreboard. By the way, barely missing this list was Sosa's most famous postseason homer that year, a 490-footer in the NLCS that somehow cleared the TV camera stand behind the bleachers in dead center. ...

This is probably a little weird, but the Travis Wood HR carries extra significance for me. Before the 2015 Wild Card game I unequivocally would have chosen Kerry Wood's Game 7 NLCS HR as my favorite sports play of all time. I would go back and watch it and imagine how awesome it would be to be there...

May 8 is my birthday. We were visiting my parents who live 6 hours away. I had been shopping for a used truck for a long time.

Re: New extra inning rule being tested

Idk what the statistics show in regards to the coin flips in the current OT setup*, but nobody ever chooses to kickoff in OT so that says quite a bit right there. You always choose the option that guarantees you get at least the same number of possessions as the other team. And this rings even more ...

Re: New extra inning rule being tested

The only two sports I deeply care about are MLB and NFL. For MLB I'm in the vast majority: leave extra innings alone. If forced to choose between this proposed rule and having the game end in a tie after 12 innings I would actually choose the tie. For the NFL I prefer regular season games have no OT...
