Open thread/Create your own caption



Yours truly made a spur of the moment trip down to Nashville earlier in the week for work. Apologies to loyal reader and good friend, “Pie In The Sky” for not giving him enough notice to meet. It would have been difficult given I only had two days. My last night in the city, I finally had some free time to roam the city. Not only did I jokingly piss off Nashville Predator fans with the shirt I was wearing (I promise they came at me first), but I ended up finding this pay phone. Of course, it reminded me of my younger days when I had to use one of these.

With that being said, if any of you have any humorous captions for the photo above, whether it be about sports or anything else, feel free to add it in the comments.

    Damn it!!! I came down here and I still saw Tom FUCKING Skilling on television! Can’t I get ever away from that fat little troll?

    Nah. Not at all. Just havin’ a little fun. But when September 11 comes along, it’ll be a different story entirely. That’s when the Bears officially begin their very own reign of terror…..on us, the fans.

    Get ready for the trainwreck to come. It won’t be pretty.

    I entertained the idea of Photoshopping Ted Phillips in that picture making a collect call. I am just not as good at using the program like others may, so I didn’t go through with it. Plus, it consumes a hefty amount of time. Oh well.

    Don’t even get me going on that season opener in Houston. So that means you aren’t excited for training camp in two weeks? Some of the beat writers from the Sun Times and Tribune were on The Score and ESPN 1000 this week. They said that the Bears won’t have a good running game this year. I disagree. Langford is good, Carey is still here and can be a good third down back. And they drafted Jordan Howard, who was one of the best running backs in the Big Ten last year.

    The offense will rest on the health of Jeffery and if the offensive line can be solidified with Long going back to his natural position and the new guys who were signed.

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    And speaking of Jeffery, I forgot to mention the contract issue. He is playing with the tag this year. And this may sound awful, but they should have just let this guy fill in the numbers on a new contract. The Bears have been known for spending a lot of money (and on the wrong players) for years, but Jeffery isn’t one of those players who would be a bust. He’s a Pro Bowler and if healthy, probably the best wide receiver in the division. Pay the guy. And if they are worried about getting hurt, give him guaranteed money in the first year or two, thus, if they cut him after, it doesn’t cost them anything. It makes sense if they want to see how he will do in the first year or two and if it works out, the next two or three years shouldn’t be a problem.

    Caption: “Hello, Ricketts? If you don’t get rid of that stupid song, “Go-Cubs-Go” after every win, I will jump down this phone and ring your scrawny pencil neck!” Love, Fro Dog

    Prediction: If the Cubs can’t take at least 2 of 3 to the Mets in the next series, especially on the days Arrieta and Lester are pitching, then they will not get past the second round in this years playoffs.

    Mark it!

    “…no, we’re not doing it again!”

    Ha. I don’t usually get out to downtown Nashville (live 40 minutes outside of it and, like you, usually busy). Although, I was around that area on Saturday to buy a car.

    I remember when the Bears came to town back in 2012 (Bears 51 Titans 20). Nashvillians like to think of themselves as huge drinkers. Well, our local radio talk show (Midday 180) had bartenders calling in talking about how their establishments were drank dry because of the Bears fans who were partying after that victory. Had to laugh because even with the stereotypes of Nashville, it didn’t surprise me having lived up in Northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula for about 13 years. Once you get farther up North, it’s about all there is to do.

    Ernie…….OUTSTANDING my friend. My compliments once again sir.

  11. erniesarmy Says:

    Thank you, Chucky. Never stop putting fires under the butts of Cub management!

  12. chucky Says:

    Ernie, while we’re at it, how about ending that stupid ass “7th inning stretch guest conductor” bullshit? That shit needs to go the fuck away too, and the sooner the better. Let’s get that done too. Steve Goodman isn’t the only shitstain that polluted Wrigley Field. That drunken, overrated turd Harry Carey did a good job of stinking up the place too.
