I'm from Iowa. At age 21 I've attended 102 Cubs games through the 2010 season. Every mile traveled to get to these Cubs games was worth it, and that's a lot of miles!

The Best Cubs Game of April 2010

It's almost "deja vu" of 2009.  In the first 21 games last year the Cubs were 10-11, this year is the same story at 10-11 after play on April 27.  Now with a record of 11-13 going into May, the...

The Best Cubs Game of September/Oct 2009

Hey at least they finished five games above .500.  The first winning season without a playoff appearance since 2004.  Now we get to root for any team that faces the Cardinals.  Who would have...

The Best Cubs Game of August 2009

I haven't been this disappointed from a swoon month since the 7-22 month of May in 2006, probably because 2006 was the last time the Cubs didn't go to the playoffs and May 2006 was the month that...

The Top 5 Cubs Games of May

The month of May was so inconsistent that the Cubs were once a half game out of 1st place.  Then they went on an 8 game losing streak to bring them to a 4th place slot at the end of the month...

Top 5 Cubs Games of April '09

Which game stands out to you the most?  Was it Soriano's game winning homer in Milwaukee?  Or was it Reed Johnson's "The Catch II" to sit Prince Fielder down?  Was it Ted Lilly's second 1-hit...

A video montage of the Chicago Cubs in the 2008 season played along with Def Leppard's Animal. I chose Animal because it's my favorite song of all time. The song also has an uplifting effect, going to Wrigley Field has an uplifting effect. The video and the editing isn't the best but I still put it together just the way I wanted to. The theme of this video isn't highlighting the top plays and games from 2008, it highlights the moms and dads spending a day or night at Wrigley with their sons and daughters. It also highlights of the usual activity that occurs in and around the ballpark before, during, and after the game. Altogether the video enshrines the experience fans get from the ballpark. Enshrining the experience of buying a program, the foam finger, the food, the Harry Caray statue, the promotional event handed out at the gate, watching batting practice, finding your seat seeing the Cubs win, so on and so forth. Tell me what you think!

I was just watching last year's NLDS game 2 to remind myself of what the Cubs are trying to avoid doing again, if you know what I mean.  There was a play during the 6th inning where I think it was...
