What kind of fan am I? Harry led me to the Cubs when I was a baby. Here is an entry my mother made in my baby book: "At 2 months and 3 weeks old the only place Erin wants to lay is on her back on a blanket in front of the TV. She loves listening to Harry Caray and watching baseball on TV." Still true 32 years later....

A very sad day for central Illinois and baseball. Atleast he is hanging out with Harry now.....

Cubs Caravan in Peoria, IL

I wasn't daring enough to drive 40 minutes in -30 degree weather to attend this event last night. I did find an article about it though if you are bored and not able to attend the convention like me.

Here's my BCB shirt pic from the game on 091908. It was a beautiful and perfect day for a game even if the Cubs lost. It's ok since they clinched it the next day. I added some of my other pics to the BCB flickr group. I also learned that Z drives the sweet black lamborghini that was parked next to the ballpark. Don't ask, just trust me.

Chiefs vs Cougars

Article from Peoria Chiefs website. Appears the game was suspended in the 9th and will be finished in Peoria tonight. Go Chiefs and Go Cubs!

Padres Young and Bard injured by Pujols

Young and Bard were wiped out in the same inning by Pujols last night. I don't usually have anything complimentary to say about Pujols, but he seemed genuinely shaken up and concerned. He even seemed to be saying a little prayer for Young while he was surronded by trainers etc on the ground. Both injuries were very gruesome. Watch at your own descretion.

Ok, so I am not usually this childish, but I felt compelled to post this pic in retaliation for the pic posted by a moran at VEB.

Cubs = Jimmy Buffett

A friend of mine sent this to me and I thought it was worth sharing. On the Phillies blog they started a list comparing teams to bands. The Cubs one is kind of painfully true and the Cards one even more so. Enjoy!

Just to make sure it gets stuck in your head for another baseball season!

Ultimate 7th Inning Stretch Competition

I am curious if anyone else entered this contest on Cubs.com. It's hard to find the link to it now because they moved it off the front page of the website, but you can find it under sweepstakes....

It's about Ryne Sandberg's Hall of Fame induction speech. It makes a good point about the lack of respect for baseball and in society as well. It points out that we as adults are responsible for...

How rude was it for him to say we are the 2nd best fans in the world in our ball park and then say Dodgers instead of Cubbies?!?!? I threw my bad play brick at the TV. Good thing it is made of...
