Not looking good (Cubs).

May 28, 2017

I’m not panicking, as there’s a lot of baseball still to be played…but the 2017 Chicago Cubs are looking less and less like a serious WS contender.

Roger Goodell continues to ruin the game of football.

May 23, 2017

And sadly, the only ones who can do anything about it are the greedy owners.

Today, the owners approved of making overtimes in the regular season only 10:00 rather than 15:00. So now, more ties would be likely to happen. Fact: Fans, for better or for worse, want to see a winner and a loser. Ties sometimes screw with playoff scenarios as well. Get ready for more shitty football.

The owners don’t give a shit what Goodell does to screw the game up because no matter what, this guy is the catalyst to filling their pockets and in return, they fill his. It’s crap.

Fact: The game of football is more dangerous with all of these rule changes than 20 years ago. Look how many more players are getting hurt because they have to play the game differently. All of the rule changes with how teams practice, hit and just running a play in general, are contributing to more injuries. We all know football is dangerous. That’s just the nature of the beast.

Meanwhile, nothing has been done to countless commercial breaks/timeouts or getting rid of Thursday Night Football games. If anybody wants to know another reason why players keep getting hurt, playing two games in four days will do that.

Logic doesn’t apply to the NFL.

It’s all yours, ladies and gentlemen.

…WS Hangover?

I suppose there are some bright spots.

Heyward has improved at the plate and other bats are warming up. But last night’s bullpen meltdown at Fenway,  and Anderson’s “performance” tonite are another matter.

“With everything that happened this month and being on the road a lot, I’ll take what we did right now and get on back home and try to build upon it. There’s not a negative to be found for me.” — Maddon, looking at how the Cubs did in the first month of the season 


It’s a long season….but what do you think?
