Been a Cub fan since I was five years old in 1957. Died with them in '69, '84, '89, '98 and '03 (not to mention a few years in between). Also a big Bears, Bulls and Notre Dame fan. I'm in the Denver area, where, whenever the Cubs are in town, we take over

My avatar is a picture of my wife and I at the Cubs/Rockies game April 23, 2008, which the Cubs won 7-6, for their 10,000th win.

ND/BC Game Observations

1)  Anyone thinking that Tommy Rees has the starting QB job sewn up for next year, this game ought to show you different.  A better QB adjusts to that 9 men back defense.   2)  We saw how important...

Does anyone have a link to an ESPN coverage map for ND/Wake Forest?

The local alumni club just sent an email blast indicating that the game will not be shown in the Denver area.  I have to be somewhere with my wife that evening (she doesn't understand priorities,...

This can't be a good thing. How did we get here again? This feels as low as last season AFTER the Navy game.

A Cub Fan's Live (???) Report from Coors Field

Well, I figure that at least one game a year, I can give BCB readers a report from a Cubs game I got to see here in Denver.  Tonight was my night, I sat in the middle deck, right at the end of the...

For those of you interested in such things, the Cubs, when ranked against all other major league teams, rank #1 in RPI ("Relative Power Index"), which is a way of rating the teams, taking into account a variety of factors. Helping their standing is the fact that they are tied for first with respect to strength of schedule. Not playing the Pirates yet will do that to you.

I just finished reading a blog post by Steve Rosenbloom saying that nothing was acceptable for the Cubs this postseason other than a victory in the World Series.  He said "to publicly declare that...

Does Lou Give Big Z some extra rest, after his no-no?

I think I would.  The magic number is "7", with about 15 games to play.  It gives us a margin of error, and we need Z at his best for the playoffs.  They've been doing it with Rich Harden a lot. ...

Does Clint Hurdle have something against the Cubs?

I thought it was curious that Clint Hurdle's initial selection as an All-Star Assistant Coach was Willie Randolph, instead of Lou.  Given Randolph's firing, of course, he did select Lou to fill...

The 1969 Cubs

In Al's article about today's 5-3 win over the Rockies, he mentioned how this season, at least so far, felt a lot like 1969.  Several people (including myself) posted messages in the thread...

Books about Cub Fandom (and George Will's Editorial in Newsweek)

Poll Question: Do the Cubs Need a No. 2 starter?
