Re: Guess what an idiot with a gun did this time

I'm tired of hearing the so-called "responsible gun owners" rally their defenses after each incident, chiming in that they are upstanding citizens whose guns will never fall into the wrong hands. Let's call a spade a spade. You are selfish, insecure, horsefeathers who value your ability to...

Re: Adieu Wahoo

Evidently, they're going to have to keep selling Wahoo paraphernalia in order to keep the trademark. The tweet from the Indians announcing the changes is full of pure gold. That sounds right. I know a new line of officially licensed Chief Illiniwek gear pops up from time to time for that same reason.

Re: Golf shop recommendations

GolfSmith or GolfGalaxy (they merged or got bought on by one and I forgot which one it is now) would be a good place to go if there’s one around you, there should be. They have the indoor simulators to analyze what you need and carry every brand. I’m not familiar with the area outside of that to kn...

Do it, and give us a standalone subscription option so I can finally ditch cable/satellite once and for all.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Now Trump wants the Senate to change the rules again to break the filibuster with a simple majority. When all else fails, just change the rules. You have to give it to Republicans, when something doesn't go their way there is no level they won't stoop to in order to ram it through.

Golf shop recommendations

Tax refund time is right around the corner... In the absence of a golf or shopping thread, can anyone recommend a good golf shop in the Chicago area to buy a new set of clubs? The most important thing for me is making sure I buy the "right" clubs for me, so I want to find a shop that is th...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Basically no more starts for Heyward and use him as a defensive replacement and keep Bryant at 3B since Seal Boy can't play there for horsefeathers. Why would you want to bench Heyward but keep Jon Jay in the mix? Jay has marginally better offensive numbers, but Heyward is much better at every othe...

I'm ok with the Schwarber move. Let him DH every day for a few weeks and regain some confidence against AAA pitching. I still think he will be fine, and sooner than later.
