The irony of this trash can


Two years ago, I rescued a pitbull/rottweiler and named him Slash. He’s a good boy. He does the right thing by taking a shit in the neighbor’s yard. He knows all the commands and is the most loyal dog anyone could ask for.

When I pick up his shit, I put a plastic bag in this Chicago Bears’ trash can and get to work. Until recently, I was blinded by the irony of putting dog shit in a trash can with the Bears’ logo on it. I actually feel it’s an insult to dog shit to call the Bears “dog shit.”

With training camp arriving by the end of the month, we’re all just on standby waiting for another lost season. And again, I’ll re-iterate that Roger Goodell and the owners are pieces of shit by having 17 games in a season. Scumbags.

But hey, look at this dog. He knows that when he takes a shit, it’s going in the right trash can.

    In other news:

    I know the White Sox are less popular than the Cubs here, but because they have the better shot at making the playoffs, I am hitching their myself to their banner for the rest of the season. Rest assured, if they blow an eight game lead on the Cleveland Indians, I will go straight Chucky on them t=here at Fire everybody.

    Good boy, Slash!

  3. Fro Dog Says:

    Very good boy, indeed. We are needing to take some walks near Lake Shore Drive as it’s been too long. Either awful weather or work has interfered.

    When are you coming back to the city, Genre?

  4. chucky Says:

    Thanks for the call out dvx! It’s always good to have a reputation!

    I had a thought about the Cubs. Stay with me on this, I know it’s batshit crazy. Suppose they go on another run, and only lose a game or two before the trade deadline. Do they still sell? I can actually see this happening, given this teams Jekyll and Hyde personality.

    Cool dog Fro. It actually is an insult to dog shit to wrap it up in Bears logos though. Perhaps there’s a way to leave it on the 50 yard line at Soldier Field? Or on Nagy’s desktop? Both would be fitting.

    You’re doing it wrong. When buying team trash cans, you’re supposed to buy the three divisional rivals and Dallas. This should potty train most dogs.

  6. chucky Says:

    Forget what I said about the Cubs in this post. This team is a fucking shitshow on steroids.

  7. genrebuster Says:

    Fro, hopefully soon. I’m recording in CA in Nov so sometime before then, I’ll let you know in advance.

    And I would enjoy walking with you and Slash; when Dominic was alive we walked many miles a week. I miss that.

  8. genrebuster Says:

    Ricketts and company are doing a great job breaking up the Cubs…

  9. chucky Says:

    Hey Fro, do you think David FUCKING Ross will fit in that can?

  10. Erniesarmy Says:

    Cubs 8 Diamondbacks 3. Hey Chucky, Cubs finally found a fish they can beat!! LOL!!!

  11. Erniesarmy Says:

    Cubs 8 Diamondbacks 3 … Hey Chucky, the Cubs finally found a “fish” they could beat! LOL!!

  12. Erniesarmy Says:

    Sorry, Chucky, I take that back, that can’t beat the pathetic Diamondbacks either!!

  13. chucky Says:

    Ernie, do you agree with me that David Ross sucks as a manager, and needs to go? And that the team still hasn’t fully recovered from the disastrous Chili Davis hiring?

  14. Erniesarmy Says:

    Yes, Chucky, I agree. David Ross is not ready to be a MLB manager. As far as the hitting, I think the offense stunk before Davis was brought in, so I am beginning to believe that most of these guys just can’t hit! Keep Bryant, Rizzo, Baez, Contreras, and Hoerner and trade the rest. Cubs could pick up some good young talent for Kimbrel. They need starting pitching bad.

  15. chucky Says:

    Ernie, keeping Bryant, Rizzo, and Baez will be next to impossible. All three are free agents at the end of year, and their price tag will be sky high. Especially Bryant, since his agent is Scott Boar-ass. As much as I would love to see them stay, I just don’t see it happening. You’re right about the starting pitching. Right now it’s just a black hole of death. They only one worth a fuck is Hendricks. But right now their biggest problem is Ross. 2021 is almost a carbon copy 2020. They started a little slow this year, caught fire in May, and then sank like a rock. Last year the start good, going 18-12 in the first 30 games, then tailed off to 16-14 the second 30 games, but looked even worse than their record showed. They landed three games ahead of St. Louis, but were ice cold for the playoffs. They scored one lousy fucking run against the goddamned useless Marlins in the playoffs. Right now Willson Contreras is motivating this team more than David Ross. THAT…….is a major problem. And Jed Hoyer is no Theo Epstein. That is problem too. Hope you guys taped the 2016 World Series, because it’s the only one we’re getting in our lifetime.

  16. chucky Says:

    Genre, or Fro…..any chance of you doing a thread on the Cubs dumpster fire sale? I have several thoughts I’d like to share, and it should make for some rather choice vulgar ranting on my part.

    Seriously vulgar and angry as holy hell.

  17. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Amazing how bad this farm system became in just five years.

  18. Pie in the Sky Says:

    I meant roster* … farm system too though.

  19. Erniesarmy Says:

    Pie, this organization has reverted to pre 2015 status, right back into “Cubbieville” land of hopeless despair. Now all we have is a minor league team in Chicago playing major leaguers. I think we all know how this will turn out. Last place here we come!!

  20. Erniesarmy Says:

    CBS Sports just weighed in on Cubs ownership; “but it’s loathsome to see one of sports’ most prestigious franchises dismantle a core full of fan favorites because the owners won’t pony up to keep any of them in town for market value.”
    Any hope of the Cubs being a “prestigious franchise” just went out the window with the Ricketts.

  21. Nemo Says:

    Hey guys, Holy Fuck this is my worst day ever as a Cubs fan. Absolutely disgusting!!!

  22. chucky Says:

    Since you guys are weighing in on this, here is my two cents. It won’t be as vulgar as I had thought.

    I lay this on the doorstep of three men; Fanboy Ricketts, Jed Hoyer, and David Ross.

    1) Ricketts is a cheap piece of flaming dog shit who, like Ernie just said, won’t pony up the money to keep even one of three core guys from 2016. How fucking hard could that have really been to accomplish?

    2) Hoyer is in waaaaay over his head. There’s a word that’s used to describe how to go about talking about contracts with a players agent. It called “negotiation”, and obviously Hoyer is completely clueless in the art of negotiation.

    3) David Ross is also clueless about how to manage a major league baseball team. Simply put, this team was simply too fucking good to have lost 50+ games this year, including an 11 game total suck fest that followed a combined no-hitter. Ross dicked around with the line ups, wore out the bullpen before the all star break, kept putting Jake Arrietta in ballgames when he was obviously having serious problems, and was, as far as I’m concerned, completely ill suited to handle this team. I know our friend Ernie wasn’t a fan of Joe Maddon, and I’ll confess, some of the shit he did annoyed me too. But the man had a way of getting the very most out of his players. Ross doesn’t do that, and he never will, because he’s not capable of doing so.

    Ernie is 100 % spot on when he says the Cubs have reverted back into pre 2015 “Cubbieville” land of hopeless despair. But I think it’s even worse than that. My belief is that now Ricketts has his World Series ring, all he gives a shit about now is making money and filling Wrigley with the same sheeple who will show up even when they lose 110 or mores games a year consistently. This will turn out to be a mistake of epic proportions. Buckle up boys, it’s gets bumpy from here.
