Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

They must've mixed up yadis numbers. There's no way someone more valuable than Mike trout would be that low.

Re: Cubs Productions - original content thread

Up until 2.5 years ago, that game was by far my favorite Cubs moment. I can never get enough of watching that game.

Re: Politics & Current Events

I always get super pissed when I'm driving to Rockford and npr starts to cut out right in the middle of a good story. I think I eventually figured out the Rockford station but it was airing something completely different. Major bummer.

As someone who plays in a Wiffle league that is "gentleman's speed", I have no idea how anyone could hit those pitches.

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

I wonder if this will be the beginning of the end of traditional 9th inning closers. I can see there being a number of times where a reliever comes in with one or two outs in the eighth and has to start the 9th. Might lead to more managers using their best relievers in more high leverage spots. I me...

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

The Dodgers situation is completely different from what this is. Yep. The companies making money from the Dodger deal (outside of the Dodgers) are the vpn guys. Most LA fans I know out here just use that with the MLB stream. That's probably the path I'm going to take so I'm not funding Sinclair. Wi...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Yes, Florida is a suck hole, but given they just gave the right to vote back to a large group that will likely overwhelmingly vote Democrat, I probably wouldn't write them off.

Now Ohio, horsefeathers them, there's nothing redeeming about that state.

My favorite part of that whole insurance/birth experience was that even though my daughter was born in February, things got screwed up getting submitted, which we didn't find out until like August. There was a number of back and forths between the hospital (who claimed they submitted it a million ti...

Refs missed the obvious 4th down call will cost us 3 points. They should make the kicking unit start on the sidelines when they restart.

Hey man, there's a giant cow in Australia and every time it farts it warms the planet one degree. It's a scientific fact. There's just nothing we can do about global warming, so we might as well spend all our time and money building a wall to keep all the giant cows out of America.

Re: Beer Thread 2.0

Stopped at binnys and picked up a 2018 BCBS, a 2017 BCBS, and a Pollyanna fun size toasted marshmallow. They also happened to have a bottle of CBS sitting on the shelf, so I paid the hefty price of 25 bucks for it. Probably not worth that price, but it's a bucket list beer.

I almost minor-ed in astronomy. Based on a class I took that focused on extraterrestrial life, my final Drake equation number was so small that the possibility of aliens was slim to nil. Guess I have to find something else potentially not racist.
