Re: Straight From the Heart: The signing of Ted Lilly (and Hendry almost dying)

If you want to go way back, 1984 was the year that really started to make attendance and Wrigleyville the place to be. Wrigleyville was a dump, and until the mid 80's you could have purchased any of the buildings on Waveland for example for cheap. Yeah, my friend's dad says he backed out of a deal ...

Re: Straight From the Heart: The signing of Ted Lilly (and Hendry almost dying)

The Hendry-era feels weird now that we've won a title. Yeah. Ultimately for the long-term future of the franchise, it's better that we won it under Theo/Jed than we would have been if we won a "lightning in a bottle" title under Hendry like the White Sox did, but there will always be a pa...

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

Notre Dame tried giving away that game. Princeton did very well executing their strategy. Matt Farrell plays too much hero-ball down the stretch and today was the first time it looked like it pissed Brey off. Princeton executed well until they jacked up a 25 footer while down 1. Take it to the rack!

Re: 2016-2017 College Basketball Thread

Michigan/Purdue is setting up to be a classic. Purdue was up 9, Michigan went on a 12-0 run and eventually had a 4 point lead when Purdue hit a shot from half court to make the UM lead 1 going into halftime. horsefeathering Purdue. I guess there was a reason they were only 2.5 point favorites. Cost...

LOL. This team is going to suck again.

They've now run off Forte, Marshall, Bennett, and Jeffrey (and soon to be Cutler) and gotten a total of a 4th rounder and 7th rounder in return.
