I was at the Cubs game yesterday. I don’t know if you heard about it, but Neifi Perez (Mister .197 batting average) tried bunting in the bottom of the 9th with two outs and runners on first and third with the score 5-3. Yea, he bunted. Yea, bunting will do absolutely nothing when you’re down […]

I can’t stand the professional sports teams that name themselves after states instead of cities. State-named teams were certainly the result of committees. Every one was too chicken 5hit to stand up say that the team should be named after the major city. They were afraid of alienating the smaller surrounding cities. Yet, the irony […]
C’MON. IT’S BASEBLLThis post is not simply a response to a comment from my last blog post.

Macias will be bating cleanup for the Nippon-Ham Fighters. At first I thought the team was from Nippon and the team […]

The Cubs signed Marquis Grissom and Auggie Ojeda a few days back and I’m still steamin’ mad. Grissom does not belong in the major leagues any more. He’s terrible. He’s old. He has bad hamstrings. Mix those three things together and it becomes Dusty Baker’s recipe for a starter. Don’t ask me why. That’s how […]
A friend asked my about the Canon Powershot A620. I like getting questions about digital cameras. They are fun. Here’s my response: DIGITAL CAMERASI have a lot to say here. You asked. I love digital cameras. You can scroll down to my conclusion if you get bored by my ramble. WHERE TO BUYI have never […]
They are really tearing up the bleachers at Wrigley Field. Cubs.com has a “renovation gallery”. It looks like the only seats that are remaining is the upper section of the bleachers (right below the scoreboard). Everything else is gone! Don’t worry. The brick wall is kept in tact. I think the Cubs are making a […]
