The schedule is out. How bad will it be?

May 12, 2021 by

As you all know, the scumbag owners along with the scumbag commissioner paved way for the players to further risk injury by adding a 17th game for the season moving forward.

I hate to say this because I truly feel this way. But I only see four wins on this schedule. Those are the games against the Bengals, 49ers, Lions (the first match-up) and the Giants. Every year, I always find a game that they win when nobody expects them to. Maybe that game against the Steelers? But really, they are playing one of the toughest schedules and it doesn’t help that this team is ran by frauds.

What are your predictions?

Your thoughts on the draft picks by the Bears.

My thoughts are as simple as they get: These guys will end up busts as it usually goes for this franchise. Pace will probably get an extension and Ted Phillips will tell everyone after another lost season that “the team is on the right track.”

FLASHBACK #1 …a walk down memory lane!

May 5, 2021 by

…Contreras just grounded into a DP to end the bottom of the 10th, missing a bases loaded opportunity to win the game.

So, here is an opportunity to revisit a most entertaining thread from 2008, when Fro was still a Cubs fan (!!). Big fun, ENJOY!!

Sound off, my frendts!

chucky, the floor is yours: 1-2-3….go!

The Draft is Thursday. How will Ryan Pace screw this up?

April 26, 2021 by

Will it be by drafting a bust with their original pick?

Will it be by trading away the next few first-round picks just to move up two spots to get a bust?

Or, will Ryan Pace draft someone in the first round from a Division III school that he feels will be a diamond in the rough? (Spoiler: If this happens, the pick ends up being a bust.)

So many concerns. Little-to-no resolutions. Entertain me in the comment section.

Will the Cubs ever hit again?

April 11, 2021 by

Bryant and Baez are the only starters hitting over .185.

WTF!

That. Is. All.

The idiot has sealed his fate.

(BE YOU = A STUPID IDIOT)

Well, we only have one more season of the bald-headed dipshit. Matt Nagy announced Friday that he is going to resume his duties of poorly calling the offense. You know what that means? It means more of passing the ball on second and inches. It also means those wonderful bubble screens on 3rd and 25 with a chance to still win the game. It also means the incompetence of not calling a sneak on 4th and an inch.

This idiot’s faith has been sealed. He knows he’s out the door and because of this, he’s going to sabotage this team in every way possible. I’ve said this about every idiot before him that the only way a job is kept is if they win a Super Bowl. Not make the playoffs. Not get to the Super Bowl. WIN THE SUPER BOWL. As you all know, that won’t happen.

I am posting this article as the Blackhawks are currently playing like horseshit. Even they can’t cheer me up like they use to. This is just BAD. Chicago sports is just BAD. I don’t see it getting better anytime soon.

And back to the Bears, George McCaskey gets a lot of shit and rightfully so. But everyone should credit him for being the only owner in the league to vote against a 17th game. Fuck Roger Goodell as well as the rest of the owners. Greedy fucks.

Where’s Pedro?

Good riddance (from television), Dick Stockton.

Well, this “break” didn’t last long. And special thanks to Chucky for telling me this news as I had no idea until I read what he posted in the previous thread.

The Original Kiss of Death to Chicago Sports, Dick Stockton, has announced his retirement after what seemed like a century.

Make no mistake about it, he was the true kibosh to any impending success Chicago teams may have had. Even before I was old enough to remember things, he was at the helm of failure. The Bulls in the late 80’s come to mind. They just could never get over the hump to a championship then. Jordan was always stopped by Bird or the Pistons. Bird stopped him early in his career. Then came the Pistons. Game 7 in 1990 and the Bulls had that chance. Pippen had the migraine (probably from listening to Dick Stockton call the games as he was preparing). But there he was to put an end to that. What happens after that season? The NBA goes to NBC where Dick Stockton is nowhere to be found and the Bulls finally get to the top of the mountain. Coincidence?

Here’s the one (or two) that I remember very well. Remember the 2007 and 2008 Cubs? I’m in my last year of college when this started and Dick Stockton called all of those games in the playoffs. What happens? The team plays like it’s 1997 and get swept. The next year? Sweep again. To add salt to the wound, him calling those awful games are tattooed inside my head. It’s a voice that you can hear in your nightmares. That last game in ’08 had me taking shit down off the wall in my apartment and officially ending my emotional interest in baseball. Thanks for everything, Dick (Stockton).

We also can’t forget about him usually being on the call for our beloved Bears since I was a child. I think the season opener of this past year was the first game the Bears won with him calling it in probably a decade (at least). I can’t seem to recall. But damn. It seemed Dick Stockton was announcing many of the games they lost. And as we all know, there were a TON of losses. Of course, we can’t blame then-CBS and now-FOX for putting him there to call the games. Had the Bears actually been competent, maybe we would have had the fortune of hearing someone else. But no, the Bears have been irrelevant since the 80’s and thus, get people in their 80’s to call most of the games. Any others that were on were called by the other Kiss Of Death to Chicago Sports, Kenny Albert (maybe we’ve turned a corner with him?).

It’s too bad he didn’t retire 35 years ago. Better late than never? No. The damage has been done.

Good riddance.

Taking a break.

After the Illini shitshow on Sunday, I decided to take a couple weeks off from posting unless something really stupid happens. The Blackhawks have also been a shitshow the last couple weeks. It’s fucking stressful trying to watch them right now as wel.

Genrebuster, the floor is yours for a while.
