Too good to be true?

Thanks to our good frendt chucky for sharing this link https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/report-nfl-ownership-family-discussing-selling-franchise/ar-AAKq3bB?ocid=msedgdhp and for keeping the heavy mining equipment properly maintained.

All thoughts and rants welcomed, let ‘er rip.

p.s. in other news, the Cubs are looking very good lately…

Am I, like Matt Nagy, an idiot?

May 27, 2021 by

So last year, I was supposed to go L.A. to see the Bears play on what ended up being a disaster on Monday Night Football against the Rams. One of my guys grew up in Hawaii and now, lives in L.A. He grew up a Bears fan and he came here for the opening game of the season against the Packers two years ago.

After seeing the schedule, I still promised to come out there for a game if the Bears were playing. It just so happens to be the season opener on Sunday Night Football. Of course, I booked the flight immediately since I had a credit from last year that I had to use up soon.

There is a 99% chance the Bears are going to be very bad this year. It will be worse than last year if you can believe that. Of course, I am excited to see Los Angeles for the first time. Every Saturday before the season starts, the town I grew up in has a festival where a lot of people come back to town. People I grew up with all convey in this one parking lot of this hole-in-the-wall bar where we all catch up on life. We didn’t get to do this last year because of obvious reasons. So, as it seems, I’ll be missing that for the first time in a decade. It hits me a bit personally because I won’t be there.

So, as the title says, am I an idiot for wasting my time going to watch the Bears? I mean, at least the Bears aren’t getting all of my money since the game isn’t at Soldier Field. But still. Flight and food along with whatever else I spend isn’t cheap.

I should probably ask the airline for another credit and put that money towards hookers and blow.

The Cubs (would anybody like to contribute?).

Hello, my frendts!

The Cubs have been playing better recently, which is encouraging. That said, it’s a long season.

I’ll continue to post as possible, but I haven’t been following as closely as I have in the past (mostly due to scrambling to keep afloat the past 14+ months when my income was upended due to Covid). I’ve managed to stay in the game, and now things are looking up as the work is beginning to return.

I’ll continue to post as time allows but if any of you are interested in contributing your thoughts for a new Cubs thread, please respond here and I’ll provide you with my personal email to submit your thoughts and words (not accepting prayers at this time hahaha)…unedited, of course!

The schedule is out. How bad will it be?

May 12, 2021 by

As you all know, the scumbag owners along with the scumbag commissioner paved way for the players to further risk injury by adding a 17th game for the season moving forward.

I hate to say this because I truly feel this way. But I only see four wins on this schedule. Those are the games against the Bengals, 49ers, Lions (the first match-up) and the Giants. Every year, I always find a game that they win when nobody expects them to. Maybe that game against the Steelers? But really, they are playing one of the toughest schedules and it doesn’t help that this team is ran by frauds.

What are your predictions?

Your thoughts on the draft picks by the Bears.

May 8, 2021 by

My thoughts are as simple as they get: These guys will end up busts as it usually goes for this franchise. Pace will probably get an extension and Ted Phillips will tell everyone after another lost season that “the team is on the right track.”

FLASHBACK #1 …a walk down memory lane!

May 5, 2021 by

…Contreras just grounded into a DP to end the bottom of the 10th, missing a bases loaded opportunity to win the game.

So, here is an opportunity to revisit a most entertaining thread from 2008, when Fro was still a Cubs fan (!!). Big fun, ENJOY!!

Chicago Cubs reliever Pedro Strop elects free agency after appearing in just two games this season

Sound off, my frendts!

chucky, the floor is yours: 1-2-3….go!

The Draft is Thursday. How will Ryan Pace screw this up?

April 26, 2021 by

Will it be by drafting a bust with their original pick?

Will it be by trading away the next few first-round picks just to move up two spots to get a bust?

Or, will Ryan Pace draft someone in the first round from a Division III school that he feels will be a diamond in the rough? (Spoiler: If this happens, the pick ends up being a bust.)

So many concerns. Little-to-no resolutions. Entertain me in the comment section.

Will the Cubs ever hit again?

April 11, 2021 by

Bryant and Baez are the only starters hitting over .185.

WTF!

That. Is. All.

The idiot has sealed his fate.

April 3, 2021 by

(BE YOU = A STUPID IDIOT)

Well, we only have one more season of the bald-headed dipshit. Matt Nagy announced Friday that he is going to resume his duties of poorly calling the offense. You know what that means? It means more of passing the ball on second and inches. It also means those wonderful bubble screens on 3rd and 25 with a chance to still win the game. It also means the incompetence of not calling a sneak on 4th and an inch.

This idiot’s faith has been sealed. He knows he’s out the door and because of this, he’s going to sabotage this team in every way possible. I’ve said this about every idiot before him that the only way a job is kept is if they win a Super Bowl. Not make the playoffs. Not get to the Super Bowl. WIN THE SUPER BOWL. As you all know, that won’t happen.

I am posting this article as the Blackhawks are currently playing like horseshit. Even they can’t cheer me up like they use to. This is just BAD. Chicago sports is just BAD. I don’t see it getting better anytime soon.

And back to the Bears, George McCaskey gets a lot of shit and rightfully so. But everyone should credit him for being the only owner in the league to vote against a 17th game. Fuck Roger Goodell as well as the rest of the owners. Greedy fucks.
