Re: Food Monstrosities

Speaking of painfully slow service. I've always wanted to try this challenge:

4 people go to Steak and Shake. 2 drive away. How far can they get before the other 2 people get their food?

Re: Michael Barrett's punching bag retires

He might be ok as an analyst. It couldn't make him any less likable, could it? Also, it keeps that picture of Barrett punching him in the face in the public's recent memory. In fact, Fox should make that his profile picture. Or they could have a segment called "punch AJ in the face".

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #11)

It's pretty amazing how much better the Cubs were defensively than every other team they played during the playoffs. One day, the popular thought will return to offense being more valuable than defense and people will be pointing to this Cubs team to make a point about whichever side of that debate ...

Wouldn't it be very hot wearing a black t shirt in New Orleans? Or anywhere else where it gets hot and humid for that matter. Unless of course you don't go outside much.

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

Heard the Maddon comments on La Stella being willing to go to Iowa. Interesting. It may mean the Cubs will go with just 5 infielders to start the season. It's also possible Maddon is saying that now as a way to improve the team's leverage in a possible trade. with 5 ml starter quality infielders, t...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Maddon has loved Baez from day 1. I bet Baez is the emergency catcher because there's nothing he can't do defensively.

Re: Funniest heckles you have heard at baseball games

One of the pleasures of Camden Yards is that someone got the great idea to have a walkway that runs basically over the top of the bull pen. This means that people can yell down at the visiting starting pitcher before the game starts.

I'm pretty sure that was always the plan, he only played major league games because of the WBC, split squad games and for jersey sales.


Pros: he can buy his under age teammates beer

Cons: he'll probably give them his testimony instead.

Soembody asked him if this Puerto Rico team was the best team he'd ever played on. He basically sort of kind of said that it was. The studio guys were were all "Oh no he didn't" as if that was going to cause some sort of controversy.

Re: NHL Regular Season 16-17

The Blue Jackets have set franchise records for wins and points, and still have 14 games to go. I'll be disappointed if they don't get out of the first round this year, but they would have to catch the Capitals to guarantee a much easier match up (they'd play the Penguins if the season ended today)...

Andreoli is cannon fodder, it's Zagunis who takes up Szczur's mantle as a RH reserve OF Why put Zagunis on the 40 man before you have to? You have 4 quality outfielders on the major league team and a Javy Baez that can push 2 more there. The 5th outfielder, Iowa shuttle guy is supposed to be someon...

Apologies if I've asked this before. The kids at school talk about an underground sandwich that they create called a "McGangbang". Apparently, they order a double cheeseburger and a fried chicken breast sandwich, take the chicken breast and add it to the burger. Anyone ever heard of this?
