    Game 1 of the Cup tonight. The Hawks deserve their own thread. Do you want a winner or do you want to fucking whine about the Cubs some more?

  2. genrebuster Says:

    AYFKM, your table for 2 will be ready 15 minutes before the opening face-off tonite….it is located right next to the trough…

    Sorry, absolutely no whining allowed if you don’t enjoy your meal!

    I think that was our drunken Irishman with a pseudonym. He can’t bear to show his fac … er … big fat head in here.

  4. are you fucking kidding me? Says:

    Not Yeti. You guys are fucking losers. You don’t want a winner.

  5. genrewbuster Says:

    hey asshole: how did you arrive at that conclusion? WE WANT A WINNER. go back to school little boy. 1 + 1 = 2.

    …if you want to sit by and accept utter failure (the like of which has never been seen before in professional sports), that is your right. if so, then you are the LOSER….likely a new/young Cubs fan (if you are a fan).

    YES….we want a winner, and 102 years is long enough to wait. in fact, it is ridiculous and PATHETIC. how long have you been a Cubs fan, 3 years?

    baaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaa……your mommy is calling, go home and play with your toys pally.

    This is for “are you fucking kidding me”:

    You have now passed Irish Yeti (Or are you also Irish Yeti?) and his other minions as the biggest douche in the history of the internet. Congratulations. Your urinal cake should be arriving in the mail shortly.

    This is a Chicago sports blog. The readers here decide what they want to talk about. There are some people here including myself who are into hockey a lot and have been for many years. Some others aren’t and that’s fine. And you are saying talk hockey on here. I have been since I started this site almost two years ago. Lately, I haven’t written much because unlike yourself, I have a job. I will let the good guys over at take care of the hockey talk.

    Good day.

    YEP, that’s our drunken Irishman, I knew that odor couldn’t have come from anyone else.

    “You have now passed Irish Yeti (Or are you also Irish Yeti?) and his other minions as the biggest douche in the history of the internet. Congratulations. Your urinal cake should be arriving in the mail shortly.”

    FroDog, you da man! But, I still want the video “Choke, Cubs, Choke” to be permanently placed on the front page of this wonderful blog. I want to enjoy that every time someone says the Cubs are gonna win this year. “Choke, Cubs, choke; choke, Cubs, choke, Hey Chicago, wadda say, the Cubs are gonna lose today …”

    “Ryan Dempster battled through 6 2/3 innings”. ( What the fuck? 9 hits, 6 runs (all earned) Hey Lou: Let Silva pitch every two days, please.

  10. are you fucking kidding me? Says:

    I’m the biggest douche because I called you losers for preferring to whine about the pathetic Cubs over talking about the soon to be Stanley Cup Champion Hawks?! Seriously?! A tad sensitive aren’t we boys?-you certainly are not men. Besides, if you would bother to go through some of Yeti’s old posts, you would yourselves realize how idiotic your pronouncements against me are.

    Hey, genrew (I like the “w” better)- Where did I say anything about the fucking Cubs other than you like to whine more than anything else? Did I SAY ONE FUCKING POSITIVE THING!?! FUCK NO!!! I have nothing positive to say about them. NOTHING. But, I am taking some time off being bitter about the last 35 YEARS OF MY FANDOM to enjoy another one of my teams that is WINNING! If I am ever in North Carolina, I will be sure to pick you up and bring you to Wrigley to clean the troughs with your tongue you pathetic loser!!! I did nothing to deserve those comments from you. You have done nothing but made assumptions about me-that I am Yeti, that I am a new Cub fan who doesn’t complain. YOU DON’T KNOW SHIT-and I would love to meet you and KICK THE EVER LOVIN’ SHIT OUT OF YOUR REDNECK ASS!!! Shouldn’t be too hard considering your head is already up there. Go back to fucking your mom up the ass with a hot corn cob and leave the posting on forums for people who have a brain and who know how to use it!!! Maybe you would still have a cock if you hadn’t tried to get your Rottweiler to give you a blow-job!! That was probably the biggest part of your brain too. What do you fucking do here except type “tick tock”? Missing the rest of your keys? You bring ABSOLUTELY NO FUCKING INSIGHT into anything you say!! Yeti is a jagbag, but at least he tries to employ objective statistical analysis-flawed, though it is.

    The fact that some of you REVEL in the cubs ineptitude is PATHETIC. I am PISSED about the Cubs, but it gives me no solace to watch videos making fun of them. Yes, the cubs are pathetic. Ha-ha. But if it’s so fucking funny, why are you so mad? Either you are mad or you aren’t. I don’t patronize them at all.

    Some of you people are more vicious than Sox or Cardinal fans-who deserve a punch in the throat just on the principle of the thing. Some of you people must really hate yourselves to get off on the Cubs failures-I KNOW genrew hates himself-and, really, it is the one thing I do not blame him for.

    Anyhow, this place used to have at least some intelligent baseball talk while being very critical of the Cubs. Now, it’s a fucking bad cartoon at best. Didn’t Robert just say something to the equivalent of “walks clog the bases” about Soto? Fuck, does anybody consistently believe anything about the Cubs here? FUCK!!

    I’ll take it easy on Fro since he sells cancer sticks to people, but seriously, you didn’t have time to post a simple Hawk thread? You had time to issue a series of papal bulls on wrestling but nothing on getting to the Cup? I know you are not that old, you probably don’t remember the series against the Penguins-I would have thought you would be more excited. This team looks to be a contender for years to come, but funny things often happen, Fro. You should find a way to enjoy this now-you never know when you might get another chance, it could be 18 years.

    genrew-you still here? I am waiting for you to get a clue. TICK FUCKING TOCK!!

  11. Fro Dog Says:

    Are You Fucking Kidding Me,

    Look. Take a deep breath here. Relax. Moving on.

    You’re right. I should have put up a Blackhawks thread. However for the last couple years, I have referenced people to That’s where I go during most of the games. I don’t have threads for Bears or Bulls game in particular. I just throw up an open thread for the readers here to discuss whatever is on their mind.

    You’re right also about the 1992 Stanley Cup Finals against the Penguins. I was 6. My earliest memories of the Blackhawks was in 1995 when the Blackhawks lost in the Conference Finals to the Red Wings. I’ve stuck around through all of the teams with Jason Cullimore, Eric Daze, Martin LaPointe, Jocelyn Thibault and Tyler Arnasson. Remember how all of those guys were suppose to be big stars? It’s probably a safe bet to say that those guys aren’t even playing hockey now.

    I am trying to enjoy what the Blackhawks are doing. However, I am not going to get ahead of myself. I have learned my lesson in years past in other sports. Call me superstitious but that’s what happens when all your teams have sucked for a long time.

  12. genrebuster Says:


    So, we hit a nerve…but it seems to me that you were looking to stir things up here; read your first two posts:

    1. “Do you want a winner or do you want to fucking whine about the Cubs some more?”

    2. “You guys are fucking losers. You don’t want a winner.”

    Quite an entrance! C’mon…if you’re gonna dish it out here, you’re gonna get some back! I just happened to be the 1st to respond…others might not have been so kind! What did you expect? (you’ve obviously been checking this site out a bit lately).

    Your other comments (corn cobs, incest, bestiality, self-loathing, etc) …and your THREAT OF VIOLENCE are duly noted…for all to see. Was that really necessary?

    If you are offended — or ANGRY — at the lack of a Blackhawks thread here, that is your right…but this is Fro’s blog…and unless he or KSMC post a hockey thread, it isn’t going to happen…unless a new admin is added. Why don’t you start your own blog?

    I don’t know if you ever visited the “original”…if not, here’s a little history. For several years, there was a lot of good — even insightful — baseball talk at…mixed in with some ranting, humor, flaming insults…and the like. About 1000 people were signed up when bobbyd disappeared….Fro was kind enough to start this site so we’d have a place to continue the conversation and camaraderie. Some of the long-time posters have faded away…I still enjoy checking in as I can…even though there hasn’t really been anything to cheer about for awhile. I’m tired of submitting insightful posts…it’s pretty obvious that changes in management and personnel need to be made…but they’re not happening…yet.

    Re-read my posts: I never assumed that you were Yeti, in fact I was reasonably certain that you weren’t. That said, I’m not a Yeti hater…he has made good points before and continues to from time to time.

    Seriously, you know that most of us here want the Cubs to WIN …and hopefully soon…right? Regardless, I believe that we have the right to complain when presented with an inferior product, time and again. Whether it’s a meal, a film, a book, a bailout…or the perpetual losing by and lousy management of their “favorite” baseball team. Some of us were hoping that Ricketts would make sweeping changes when he purchased the team…it didn’t happen. We don’t enjoy the losing, we are DISAPPOINTED (again…and again). Am I really ANGRY about the Cubs? No, it’s not “real” anger…after all, it’s only the game of baseball. But, just to be sure you understand my intent: I WANT THE CUBS TO WIN (a World Series title).

    Like you, I am enjoying the Blackhawks run. And you are right, funny things happen (or not so funny things): never mind 18 years, it could be another 65 years before the Hawks get another opportunity to win the Cup.

    tick tock… 😉

    “Not Yeti. You guys are fucking losers. You don’t want a winner.”

    I am nearly an “original” to this site. I must say that all of the insightfulness we may have had has truely degraded inro disgust and loathing of the continuation of the Cubs losing ways. I am certain that most everyone on this site wants a winner.

    We have endured gross mismangemnt by the Tribune Company and now we must hopefully rebuild with the Ricketts family. I will give him one year to begin to put together a team that can win it all. I will provide some insight:

    1.) Fire Jim Hendry and replace him with a competent GM.

    2.) Fire Lou Pinella and being in Girardi for the long term.

    3.) Fire the entire coaching staff and let the new GM and Manager put together a competent staff.

    4.) Get rid of as many of the old vets who didn’t get it done or are head cases. i.e. Zambrano. Ramirez, Soriano, Lee and Soto. Build around the young guys and guys that hustle. everyday.

  14. Yeti Says:

    Soto is 27 and Zambrano is 28 (29 tomorrow).. What age does one become a veteran? 24?

  15. genrebuster Says:

    As for Zambrano: Age aside, how many years has he pitched for the Cubs? Do you really think that he is an “ace”?

    I don’t and I don’t believe he will become one, at least not as a Cub. Why not trade him while he still has some value?

  16. ksmc2000 Says:

    Zambrano will never reach his full potential due to the fact that he’s too fucked up between the ears. His best years are behind him. Maybe he will waive his no-trade clause if we’re lucky.

    As for the dickhead that decided to use the title of my last thread as a screen name, fuck off. You need to get a little more creative. We have at least 102 reasons for posting the way we do on this site. If you don’t like it, just go away.

    I happen to like my rage Yogi. Especially when I can unleash it on stupid, retarded sheeple. I don’t want to lose it.

  19. Captain Kirk Says:

    “Soto is 27 and Zambrano is 28 (29 tomorrow).. What age does one become a veteran? 24?”

    Yeti, they hit the unload list because one of them is nuts and the other is a pothead. In both cases I don’t want them on my team.

    Oh yea I forgot:

    Hey anyone notice the empty seats at Wrigley????????
    That is the only answer stop rewarding incompetence.

  21. Captain Kirk Says:

    FIRE JIM HENDRY!!!!!!!!

    How is McFail doing???

  22. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    Captain Kirk,

    I believe Baltimore is a wonderful 20 games out of first place. But no worries says Andy Mac. The only way to go is up…

    I noticed the empty seats as well at the Toilet Bowl known as Wrigley. I can only hope the place is half full for every game in July up until the end of the season.

  23. genrebuster Says:

    Hey!! Brothers & Sisters…and Hockee fans!!! I MIGHT have a clue…

    The Cubs lost again to the Pirates (was it really the 7th time this season already?)! My Lord, I just don’t think this Cubs team is a contender. Still, I like the lineup without A-Ram and Lee.

    I look forward to the Hendry firing…too bad there’s not an opening for a GM in Baltimore as Jimbo and Andrew deserve each other. I believe that Lawrence would be a good fit, too….but I’m still looking for that elusive clue…so, what do I know?

    Gotta run…it’s sleepy time down South…the wind is blowing and the tumbleweeds are rolling past my window…soon it will be time to slop the pigs, tend to the corn…and the tractor needs an oil change, too. See ya’ll later…

    Baaaaaaaaaaaaa Baaaaaaaaaaaaaa Baaaaaaaaaaaa Baaaaa

    Did anybody see this? Wow…really unfortunate all the way around. I respect what Tim Kurkjian had to say…

  25. genrebuster Says:

    ….Galarraga is a class act for sure.

  26. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    I read online that only the commissioner can overturn a call and it has to be within 24 hours of that call.

    If Bud Selig were to do this, it might be the only good thing he has ever done for this sport.

  27. MadCityMac Says:

    …and of course Selig dropped the ball, so to speak! This “not having cable” may have to end. I’ll have to go to the bar to watch the Blackhawks hopefully take game 4 tonight. Love to see them have the opportunity to win the Cup at home on Sunday!

  28. Erniesarmy Says:

    After another lackluster performance by his offense Friday night, Piniella said he doesn’t want to talk about his offense anymore. Piniella told the media, “I think I’m talked out. I am talked out. I think we’ll just let them go out there and see what they can do.”
    Does this moron take any responsibility for this mess of a team? Apparently not.

    He’s like a “Chatty Cathy” doll pull his string and here him say, “Watta want me to do?”… “I’m talked out.”… “We have to produce, I did when I played.”… “I’m gonna leave him in there (Ramirez, Lee, Zambrano), gotta give em a chance to get going.”

    And he trots them out there, game after game, hoping for a different result. That’s the sign of a guy who has no idea what to do, or what adjustments need to be made. He’s clueless. Just like Hendry, Rothschild and all the rest of those Ernest P. Worrell’s they’ve got running this franchise!

    And you wonder why this franchise is the worst in the history of major professional sports?

  30. ksmc2000 Says:

    I thought I’d never say this….

    but after the Stanley Cup Finals is over, I am taking a break from sports for a while and enjoy the summer instead. I’m fucking sick and tired of wasting countless hours supporting the Cubs. There are much better things to do with my time than watch this shit day after day.

  31. Erniesarmy Says:

    Couldn’t agree with you more KSMC.

    I am about ready to quit on this team as well. Ricketts is as worthless as the Wrigley’s. No one in this organization has any baseball sense; they just churn out the same crap year after year. Cubs had a 2-1 lead going into the ninth, and our “closer” gives up the lead and the game, 3-2 Brewers.

    I’d love to hear Piniella’s comments. Let’s see, what will ole’ Lou come up with this time? Maybe something like, “Whatta want me to do … huh … whatta want me to do?” Nothin, Lou, just sit on your ass like you’ve been doing all season, don’t let a few losses ruin your day there, Pardner.

    Enough already, I’ve had it!

  32. genrebuster Says:

    I predict Lou and Hendry will be gone next year (if not sooner). If not, see ya later!

  33. chucky Says:

    Will somebody please curb stomp Shit-stain Howry in the goddamn nuts?
