Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

I've already read a similar article about Chris but damn if this didn't have me in tears after reading it. What an outstanding man. Good Lord, what our country could learn if they approached life more like this young man. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/columnist/bob-nightengale/2017/09/26...

Re: TV thread

Yeah, it's like watching a slow-motion car wreck that everyone involved has multiple, multiple attempts to avoid, or at least mitigate impact, but manage to screw up every single one of those choices. anybody know if i can watch this through some streaming app?

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Apparently the Marlins new ownership group is planning to clean house of special assistants including Jeff Conine, Tony Perez, Jack McKeon, and Andre Dawson. Not a huge story really, but I have to imagine the Cubs would be interested in bringing Dawson back to the organization. Sent from my Pixel u...

Re: Why Was z Montgomery Taken out So Soon?

Gentlemen, the z means nothing. Although I have been a great Cubs fan for 59 years-having attended both the game where Ernie got his 500th homer and the 69 opener where Willie Smith hit the game winning homer,, I can't type a lick. When I get excited I hit the "z" key. I hope no one was o...

Re: Food Monstrosities

It's ultimately the same egg, meat and cheese concoctions you'll find at any fast food place for breakfast, you hoity-toity, Howdy Doody motherhumper. Arguably healthier since it cuts out the bread too, although even their existing breakfast is still better than most because it's tortilla instead o...

Re: Game 2: bears at bucs, noon on fox

I'm not surprised they may have a quick hook on Glennon. If they can play solid D and run the ball, that is something in the NFL. It was painfully obvious that the weak link last week was Glennon. 22 net yards passing through 3 quarters and plays left all over the field (as raw pointed out). I don'...

Re: Politics & Current Events

yeah, i wasn't disagreeing with the tax decision on soft drinks at all. the only thing i said orginally was the pepsi guy's olive garden pass argument was weaker than even a generic "all-you-can-eat" argument. i honestly don't really give a horsefeathers tbh

What the heck do you think they're serving at these things? I mean, even the crappiest buffet is typically going to at least have a salad bar.
