    Any word on Sunday? If I find out I can get tickets (for face value), it won’t be until later tonight or tomorrow. I know that’s a short notice. I was going to email you on the situation. If not, maybe we’ll try for another game.

    Hey Fro. Uncle Sam rammed my ass pretty hard. All I would be able to afford would be standing room since I still can’t sit anyway lol. Keep looking for something reasonable later in the season. It doesnt have to be a prime game. Would still be fun to meet up with the Frodog and watch a hockey game and get some of those phenomenal United Center nachos!

    Finally, Bernstein gets one right.

    And while we’re at it, let’s kill the bullshit celebrity 7th inning stretch conductor routine as well. It’s looking like the Cubs are heading in a new direction and a new era, and it’s time to drop all the sappy, sentimental bullshit.

    If a 7th inning stretch routine is necessary, all you would need to do is torture Ronnie Woo Woo in some extremely painful way. That would be far more entertaining anyway, and maybe finally chase that stupid assclown out of Wrigley.

    “While some are staffing shelters for the homeless or reading to the blind, others are content to wear a rubber bracelet of a certain color or include some slacktivist hashtag in a tweeted a picture of their lunch.
    Every week and month has a titular Awareness of some illness, injustice, environmental concern or shared history, so it’s easy to feel swamped.”

    …and we really could’ve done without the NFL riding those bandwagons this season either. Getting sick of these whining motherfuckers.

  6. dvxprime Says:

    That being said, chuck, if it starts the process of the Cubs finally getting rid of this over-celebrated culture of losing, I can get behind that all day long. Everything about the “Loveable Losers” ideal needs to be put to a swift and public death.

  7. chucky Says:

    Among other things. Well said dvx.

  8. Fro Dog Says:

    Chucky, as I am sure you heard, it was Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary special last night. The day before, NBC aired the first episode with no other, than one of your favorites, George Carlin. It sucks that NBC won’t release the entirety of all episodes from start to finish on some type of site. YouTube has stuff from NBC but just segments.

    I have only seen the original Superfans segment once (with Joe Mantegna) on a website about two years ago. NBC tends to be on the lookout for other sites that has their footage only to have it taken off. They are really protective of their video library (like WWE).

  9. chucky Says:

    Fro…..NBC is actually worse. They’ve pulled a lot of content off of Youtube, claiming copyright violations. It’s actually kind of pathetic. I watched it Sunday night. It was a great show, and from what I’m hearing just completely crushed the NBA All Star game in the ratings. It wasn’t even close.

    One segment I was hoping to see, and I might have missed it, not entirely sure, was “Lord Douchebag”. That skit has to be about the funniest they ever did. That is also one of the many clips that NBC pulled from Youtube.


    By the way, have you guys got your orders in for the “Bass-o-matic 2150” yet? I’ve got mine! And I have a bass too! Can’t wait to try it out!

  10. dvxprime Says:

    Sooo…Edie Murphy returns to SNL…for 73 seconds…no skits or jokes. Dafuck?

  11. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    IMO Eddie Murphy has been a shell of his former self for years. There are not many good stand up comedians anymore or I just got spoiled in the 80’s.

  12. chucky Says:

    CBSS……much of his downfall was those horrible movies he did. Some of them, not all, were worse than the ones Elvis did.

    If you are looking for good stand up from any vintage, I recommend George Carlin. Get “All My Stuff”. It’s expensive, but worth every penny. He was a absolute genious, not to mention just funny as hell. He also had the abilty to really make you think. One of the smartest men to have ever lived, in my opinion.

  13. chucky Says:

    Good news radio fans! Matt Speigal yesterday announced Patrick Mannellys replacement for the midday show……JASON GOFF!!!!!!
    I was in my car when the annoement was made, and I nearly went into a ditch. The way Speigal was teasing it, I really thought that McNeil was returning, which would have probably spelled the end for me listening to that station ever again. Then he said those two magic words, JASON GOFF, and, like I said, I nearly went off the road. Thank you Score. You got this one right. You have fixed the mistake you made last fall when McNeil walked away like an idiot.

  14. Fro Dog Says:

    Chuckster, I received a phone call about it from a bud while I was at work. That’s how excited he was. So am I. I was actually worried about McNeil coming back but more if Rozner was the one to get it. That guy is a turd, as well.

    Did you hear why Goff was fired in Atlanta? He told the story again last night with Laurence Holmes.

  15. chucky Says:

    No, i missed it. I’ll get the podcast and listen to it later.

  16. SunriseZone Says:

    Anyone else notice Emily Florez, a general assignment reporter for NBC 5 ?

  17. Fro Dog Says:

    Haha. I actually did about a year ago. She sometimes does weekend mornings or is a reporter on weekdays. Her, Michelle Relerford and Lauren Petty are all shoe-ins for the tournament in March. Yes, the tournament of Chicago television babes are back.

  18. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    If Sarah Spain ESPN Chicago is allowed in the tournament consider it over and hand her the crown now.

  19. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    Just read Fros article from 2010 about Sarah, looks like he is biased to whores lol

  20. Fro Dog Says:

    Hey. She went on her site a year after that article and blasted me for posting “false” information. I clearly stated my sources in those articles. Then, at the Bears season opener in 2011, I was with the guys from Fire Ron Turner tailgating. As I get back from the port-a-potty, I see about six douchebag frat boys surrounding a woman who is talking very loudly. It was no other, than Sarah Spain. That’s all you need to know about her.

    As was the tournament two years ago, she is on the exempt list. The same goes for the following:

    Cheryl Scott (she already won)
    Marley Kayden (married to Mike Tyson’s replacement in Punch Out)
    Erin McElroy (Sorry, Jimmy D.)
    Alicia Roman (engaged to a douche)

  21. chucky Says:

    Fro….do me a favor and leave the hideous Micah Materre on that exempt list too. That fat bitch is as obnoxious and overbearing as it gets. I absolutely hate her.

  22. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    Ok so no whores lol. My early picks are… Natalie Bomke and Melody Mendez.

  23. Fro Dog Says:

    I should put Materre in there just to make Chucky very ANGRY. Haha. Just kidding, Chucky. You know we love you here. We’re just busting your balls.

    CS, I will consider those two and pass it along to the selection committee. We’ll start this tournament sometime next week. I have to say, Melody Mendez is someone I can get behind for this tournament. Or, I can just get behind her. That works too.

  24. chucky Says:

    Or in front of her? I could do that.

  25. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    I agree with Chucky. She is definitely the type of girl you can look in the face when your giving her the business.

  26. jimmy d. Says:


    Somehow, you gotta locate another “fire in the hole” beyotch for the tourney! Erin…I miss you!

    Jimmy D.

  27. Fro Dog Says:

    Cheer up Jimmy D.

  28. Fro Dog Says:

    “Or, I can just get behind her. That works too.”

    (Slaps self across the face)
