Dreamcast 89: Therapy Session

In by Rice Cube22 Comments

The jabronis get together after a fairly frustrating and not-fun stretch of Cubs futility to talk ourselves off the ledge as there is plenty of season left and the Cubs are still miraculously maintaining a winning record.

Random Thoughts On a Saturday

In Commentary And Analysis by Rice Cube101 Comments

I chose the Craig jpg by berselius mostly because it’s funny, not because the Cubs are bad. In fact, if we take a look right now (before they play the second game of their series at Fenway as of this writing), the Chicago North Side Baseball Club is actually the fourth best team in the majors, albeit third best in …
