Bleacher Bums this weekend at Carl Sandburg High School

2
E9xe29

Not doing anything Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night or Sunday afternoon? Tired of seeing the Cubs lose? Come on out to Carl Sandburg High school in Orland Park to see the 1998 Version of Bleacher Bums. [Spoiler Alert] You still will see the Cubs lose, but at least it will be a more enjoyable time than watching the Big League team. Tickets available at the door. Curtain at 7:00 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 3:00 on Sunday. [Full Disclosure - my daughter is part of the tech crew for this production]

Season Ticket Renewals are here

Oh Well...I was hoping that my tickets would go down for 2013, but the opposite is the case. Last year my tickets cost $2017.12. For 2013 it will be 2045.12. So much for all the talk that the Cubs...

WCIU to Simulcast Cubs Home Opener on Thursday afternoon (NOPE!)

36

Robert Feder is reporting that due to the WGN/Direct TV dispute, WCIU will be simulcasting the Cubs Home opener along with WGN. I know, this won't really help out-of-towners who can't get WCIU, but for the people in the Chicago area who have Direct TV and can't get WGN on their antenna (If they even have one). this should let them watch the opener.

New MLB Labor Deal restricts changes in Uni Numbers

A while back, the GOD HELP US sign was discussed. Back in 1981, I was one of the people who held that sign up. I finally got a copy of the picture (with the help of the other person holding the sign who found his copy of the newspaper article),

2 interesting notes from Phil Rogers column

I know, I know, most people here think Phil Rogers columns in the Trib are only good for paper training the puppy, but there were a couple of nuggets in the whispers today... Phil Rogers Whispers ...

Zambrano leaves game early, but goes to softball game later

126

I don't know what to say about this one. Zambrano leaves the Giants game early with back problems, but is feeling good enough to throw out the 1st pitch at a Pro softball game later in the day and then has to dodge a foul ball while doing an interview. It didn't look like he had any back problems when avoiding the foul ball while doing the interview

Bobby Scales going to Japan

According to Carrie Muscat, Jessica's favorite player, Bobby Scales has signed with the Nippon Ham FIghters.

Cubs release Max Ramirez

VIa Twitter. I know there was a lot of angst around here when the Cubs waived him in Spring training, only to have nobody claim him and then he went to the minors. I guess it wasn't working out there either and now he's gone

Bleacher Bums (the WTTW rebroadcast from 1984)

15

In honor of opening day, FuzzyMemories.tv has posted up the WTTW broadcast of the classic play Bleacher Bums. It is in 9 parts (plus the intorduction) on their site. For those who do not know about Fuzzy Memories....It is an online museum of Chicago Television history. It is a great site to relive your childhood at.

OT: U-Verse finally gets the MLB Network

11

I mentioned this in a comment in another post, but I felt it really deserves it's own post. After 2 years, ATT's U-Verse has finally added MLB network to it's lineup. I know several of you (along with myself) have U-Verse and have complained about it's not having MLB, but now this morning it has arrived (and just in time to watch the Cubs being featured on "30 Teams in 30 Days"). It's only available in the U-300 package and above (and not yet in the Sports Package), but it is there now.

Say what you want about the Ricketts and how they are handling the team (and yes, they have not performed the best there), but now for the 2nd time in 2 years, season ticket holders have gotten a little something as a thank you for being a season ticket holder. Last year it was a hat with season ticket holder embroidered on the back. This year it is a license plate frame. Thank you Ricketts family (and yes, I can be bought cheap)

Aubrey Huff, Bobby Cox not convinced Replay is good for baseball

127

Some quotes from the article.. "You're taking everything that's great out of baseball — the human element," Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff said Friday. "I'm talking to more and more people that say we should have some type of review on plays," Cox said. "I'm not so sure it's a good idea, to be honest with you. "

Polish Night at Wrigley - August 17th

28

Jeszcze Polska nie zginęła, Kiedy my żyjemy Darn it all...as someone of Polish heritage, I would have loved to be there on this night, but I can't make it. My only other thought is that this reminds me of Bill Veecks promotions at Sox Park during the 70's. Is the attendance falling that much that the Cubs need gimmicks like this to get people in the park?

Would You Wear This Cubs Cap?

43

Listen, I understand the need to create new looks to try to get sales, but come on already. An Argyle Cubs Cap? I can't even imagine anyone wearing this. WhIle I am a traditionalist and I think this is an awful design, I know there are people out there that are not...so would anyone actually wear this?

Santo to Cut Back

41

Some people love his work on WGN, Some people hate it, but Ronnie IS the voice of the Cubs. He will not be going to his home town this week and next year he will be cutting back on the travel he does with the team. I guess it is officially the time to start talking about his replacement in the booth. I just hope it is not his temporary replacement this week - Dave Otto. Keith Moreland anyone?

Cubs Moving Off WGN Radio

23

At least for the games that conflict with the Blackhawks Stanley Cup Finals games. The June 2nd and June 4th games will move to WIND and if the series goes to game 6, the June 9th game will also be moved. This does make sense and kudos to the Cubs for agreeing to move their games so the Hawks could be heard on the Big 50,000 Watt Blowtorch

Sullivan Tweets Millar out, Tracy in

I was hoping that Millar would get the spot, as I felt he would be this years Eric Karros, but based on results, I guess Tracy won the job.

Reinsdorf upset with paying "Cubs Tax"

Our good buddy Jerry and the Diamondbacks president Derrick Hall are objecting to the tax that will help fund the Cubs new spring training complex. They feel that it's unfair for them to charge higher ticket prices to help the Cubs.

Let's Help Get Jack Brickhouse's Statue repaired and back on Display

18

Right now, the statue of Jack Brickhouse that was on display on Michigan Avenue (lets not get into why it was on Michigan Ave and not in it's proper place at Wrigley as opposed to the person whos statue is at Wrigley) has been taken down and is in need of major repairs. Pat Brickhouse, along with the Chicago Baseball Museum are trying to raise funds to repair the statue. Lets back Jack and get this statue of a real Chicago Broadcasting icon back on display. To donate, go to the Chicago Baseball Museums website at the website linked above.
