Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Woody 20 K game on ESPN right now. I've enjoyed watching these old games. But holy crap is Chip Caray bad! I don't recall him being as awful as he truly was. Joe Carter made Caray look good. Caray with Stone at the end of their run (when they would trash the team espec Alou) was fun. That was a rou...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Gambling on a 4th round QB in the draft or trading that pick for an established starter in Foles. I'll take the Foles trade. It's not that Foles is terrible, it's just that he had a bad contract and most importantly, no trade market and yet the Bears likely bid against themselves and lost. It was a...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Well the Bears don't have anything from pick 50 to 163 in the 5th now. They might move around, and Pace is always game to trade future picks, but as it stands, they could miss on that tier 3 QB prospect too. Oh that's right, I forgot that Pace decided to flush our 4th away for Foles. Fantastic. Gam...

(Given the status of the draft) They should be bring back DF&Es or better yet, allow college kids to be drafted before they get near their 21st birthday for the next two drafts.

We will see what a disastrous job report will do to an already anxious president.

Re: The Ricketts family sucks in all kinds of ways

How much money has the Rickett's buddy Donald cost them with his performance over the Coronavirus? When they capitalize off the drop in the market, it will more than make up for lost ticket and concession sales. "Hey just a heads up, I'm gonna go address the nation tonight and it's gonna be a ...

On my way in to work this morning, I had a random/dumb thought about how disappointing the Democratic candidates have been post-Obama (meaning Clinton and, presumably, Biden). Not for the litany of usual reasons, but just because of how much it follows the Republicans' path post-Reagan. After Reaga...

Buttigieg pulling out of the race. Interesting. Biden running mate? I seriously doubt it. I think he just realized he has no shot at the nomination and his staying in the race just helps Bernie. Not great news for Bernie supporters... While I think the least of his supporters will go towards Sander...
