Da Cubs.


strange days

Greetings to all and apologies for my prolonged absence…current events have thrown a wrench into many things, and like many I’ve been affected. Between scrambling to make ends meet, and how to release an album that was scheduled for a mid-March release (I held it back for awhile) my plate has been full.

That said, I’m healthy and doing my best to remain that way; here’s hoping that the same is true for you and yours.

Under normal circumstances, we would be 2 months and counting into the 2020 baseball season. But the way things are looking, I won’t be surprised if baseball is canceled until 2021….what do YOU think is going to happen?

As for the Cubs, I honestly haven’t been keeping up with what’s happening/new. If anybody wants to post an in-depth analysis to spark a new thread, please comment here. Upon request, I’ll start a new thread with your post featured and a credit to you.

As weird as things are, a summer without baseball makes everything worse…(for me).

In 2016, the Cubs surprised (shocked?) most of us by winning their first WS since 1908. Now we sit and wait…

tick fucking tock…

    It looks like the owners and players are giving the fans the finger this season. I say, adios amigos, I have other things to do besides watching pro sports. If they cancel the season, I’m done.

    Hello, folks.

    Not that much to say about Chicago sports that hasn’t already been said.

    Judging by what I’m seeing on Facebook, and what I’m seeing on the sports tickers for the few minutes that I watch ESPN, professional sports is going to be damn near unbearable and unwatchable with all the SJW virtue-signaling and value posturing by atheletes, companies, etc. I’m going to believe that everybody kind of understands what I’m talking about…without getting too political,,,and it’s all a bunch of absolute BULLSHIT.

    I love soccer (FIRE AND PASSION DAMMIT!!!) and before the lockdown I couldn’t find more than two websites that had any decent soccer news coverage (fuck you both FoxSports.com and ESPN.com). Looking at Major league Soccer’s FB posts have gotten on my last fucking nerves, to the point where I am strongly considering setting MLS to “ignore” for this year.

    …and then, watching highlights of the first English soccer game to be played since COVID-19 shut down the English Premier league, guess what I see the players on both teams doing before the game? On the field? And guess what was emblazoned on the back of both teams’ shirts? Any guesses?

    I apologize if this turned into a political post, but I am just so tired of seeing so much bullshit seep into major league sports. We may not be happy campers if/when MLB (if ever), NHL, NBA (aw, hell naw!!!) and the NFL come back.

    So…the commish proposed a 60 game season, and the players said “NO!”

    And I found that out by going to SI.com…for the first time in a month. I don’t even go near Deadspin anymore.

    NBA decides to add “Black Lives Matter” on the courts and allow the players to sew “political messages” on their uniforms instead of their names.
    NFL decides to allow the players to kneel during the anthem and have a “Black” justice song played along with the anthem.
    Dan Snyder is being bullied by the corporate mobs to change the name of the Redskins, and so too the Indians.
    MLB is planning to change the names of the MVP trophy because they are apparently considered “racist.”
    Sorry, fellas, I’m done with pro sports. I will keep a close eye on hockey to see if they bow the knee with all the rest. But I have no interest in sports pushing a political message no matter which side of the aisle it comes from.
    I watch sports for the games, not to be hounded and bullied by Leftist mobs.
    I will still come back here and comment on things, but I won’t be watching pro football, basketball, or baseball any more. Perhaps, in the future, when sanity comes back in vogue, I will change my mind. But as for now, I’m out!

  7. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Some of this sh-t is ridiculous.

    On one hand, I don’t care about kneeling, TBNA, or any of these pregame demonstrations and gestures. I just won’t watch pregame. Now if they go through with adding political messages on jerseys and courts? Yeah…no.

    On the other hand, why are players still kneeling? Half the people doing it now are just doing it to appease cancel culture (e.g. Brees). Kneeling got everyone’s attention. Now is there anything fans can do to get them to stop kneeling? What do they want? They’re just gonna kill their ratings…

    Redskins talking about a name change. It sounds like they’re gonna change their name to something else that’s related to Native Americans. Huh? Either keep the name or call themselves Washington NFL team while keeping all the team colors. Nobody can bitch about a racist nickname if there’s no nickname…

    There’s way too much of this “Look at me! Give me likes” mentality among the youth. Social media has made everyone think they’re a superstar. The reality is that the majority of Twitter is based off TWO PERCENT of the American population. TWO PERCENT!!!. Social media is a creek. The real world is the Ocean.

    Fear. Hate. Lies.

  8. Fro Dog Says:

    I so much agree with the previous two comments. I am writing my own post right now commending you all. This is a political-free zone on this site and will do my best to not make it all about that. Sports brought us together. This is fucking absurd.
