Re: The Cardinals

A couple of other McCarver gems: "Lackey was run from a game last year or the year after that." The year after last year...is this year isn't it? And during a discussion of Joe Maddon: Tim McCarver: The father of actor Jack Palance used to be Joe Maddon's plumber. Go figure that out! Dan ...

Re: The Cubs stink

Yeah? Well I was a Brewers fan for the two years I lived in Racine in the early 80's. Happened to coincide with them going to the World Series (and losing to the horsefeathering Cardinals). I hold absolutely no connection between that Yount/Molitor lead team and today's garbage team This sounds so ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm not surprised at all the eyerolling at my earlier post (you do you, NSBB), but as far as tax revenues go, cigarette and soft drink taxes are easy money. Would people quitting those things entirely (reducing those revenue streams to zero, theoretically) be offset by lower costs on the healthcare...

Re: Charmed Brewers get Marlins series moved to Milwaukee

The politics have changed without their owners buddy in the commissioners office but the White Sox hosted for the Marlins in 04 when they were hurricaned out and are on the road this weekend(and obviously not a far trek for Milwaukee.) If Selig was still in charge this setup would be getting a lot m...

Re: Charmed Brewers get Marlins series moved to Milwaukee

They haven't always done that. There was going to be a home team in the series anyway, so it's really not a big deal that that gets flipped because of extraordinary circumstances. As recently as a few weeks ago, Texas vs. Houston was moved to Tampa. Because a hurricane hit Texas. The Rangers stadiu...

Re: College Football - Week 3 (Sept. 16)

Penn State dropping is annoying but completely justified, as they didn't play as strong an opponent as Clemson, Oklahoma or USC (though it didn't hurt Alabama any) Why would it be annoying? The polls mean nothing. (Yes UMFan is ripping on caring about power rankings. It's been that kind of weekend)...

Re: Chicago trip tomorrow, looking for a little advice

Chicago has been propping up these sham pizza wars for far too long; they've built an entire pizza-industrial complex on that back of a monstrosity that's not even pizza to begin with, which is baffling since they have the delicious Chicago-style thin crust RIGHT THERE. Oh horsefeathers right off w...

Id avoid city traffic jump on lake shore and head to the giordanos at 14th and Michigan. Should be timed pretty well with bears traffic clearing out around that time

Maybe I'm just naive or something but are there lots of sex offenders with warrants out for their arrest?

I honestly don't think either makes the WS and think at least one loses in the DS.
