Pretty sure nothing in sportsdom (any sport, any team, ever) gives me chills more than this video...

I don't mean to horsefeathers on your memories. Those both give me goose bumps and chills and all that when I watch. But both of those moments are in games the Cubs lost. Have no problem with them being up at the top, but those can't be the most chill worthy sports moments you guys have.

Just do us all a favor and make a Schwarber Bomb #1. Water or Scoreboard, I don't care

I mean, thinking of the outcomes of the games makes me sick. But both were incredible moments in time, irrespective of the final score. I don't see how that's horsefeathers. Schwarber's HR was incredible, too.

Couldn't find one, but to be fair, I was looking for this specific video because the noise level and fan reactions make it more goosebump worthy, IMO.

I have a clip on a thumbdrive somewhere, I think, but I don't think it's on the internet anywhere anymore.

I've been trying to find the WGN footage of the below HR, but I've been unsuccessful. It was a game covered by Hawk Harrelson, and when Aramis hit the HR, the audio just abruptly died and never returned. Even the producers just gave up, and the video feed was simply an unmoving camera trained on the center field bushes where the ball landed...just lying there with insane cheers in the background. It was perfect. (not nearly as goosepimply as Wood's HR or Sosa's, but horsefeathers Hawk)

One of my random favorites - don't think there's video anywhere - is the Aramislam against Philly in August 08 just because that team had demonstrated themselves to be so horsefeathering awesome by that point that I just knew he was going to go yard and he did

That ball went directly over my head. Incredible.

The video I'm dying to find is the Cubs Sox game from (07?) where Hawk thinks that it's a triple play when it's an obstruction call. Hawk flips out and then states that he's never seen obstruction called in his entire life at any level.

I found the original link via the NSBB archives, but it doesn't play a video anymore :/

This is definitely old, certainly Cubs-related and pretty hilarious from Hamm's modern glass bottle to their new, cutting-edge seamless aluminum can. My how things have changed...

Man, watching those highlights (on top of being fun) had me realize the improvements, both subtle and obvious, that have been made to this roster since last year. For the most part, Zobrist replaces Castro, Heyward replaces Soler/Schwarber and Lackey replaces Wada/Haren. That's improvement. But on top of that...

Jonathan Herrera, Junior Lake, Mike Olt, Arismendy Alcantara, Austin Jackson, Mike Baxter and Chris Denorfia (the last two weren't bad actually) combined for 566 AB with 150 K/38 BB and a .235 AVG. Assuming health from the 2016 group, those guys were essentially replaced by Soler/Schwarber, Javy Baez, Tommy La Stella and (for now) Matt Szczur. Even including the absence of Chris Coghlan from the current bench, that's got to be better.

James Russell, Dallas Beeler, Edwin Jackson, Jason Motte, Donn Roach, Brian Schlitter, Phil Coke, Yoervis Medina, Gonzalez German, Rafael Soriano and Tommy Hunter combined to throw 178.2 IP with 132 K/58 BB giving up 212 hits for a 1.51 WHIP and an ERA of 5.24. Some of those guys represent AAA injury call-ups, but essentially they've been replaced by Trevor Cahill, Neil Ramirez, Adam Warren and (for now) Clayton Richard with likely AAA injury call-ups Carl Edwards, Pierce Johnson, Ryan Williams, Spencer Patton and Manny Parra.

What's that about little things adding up?
