Just wanted to let everyone know I still feel healthy, just working a lot. Hozer and I miss doing play by play of Cubs games on here and commenting on the games. Everything will be back to normal soon

As most of you know, I'm a Cardinals fan.  But you don't know that at one time I was a Cubs fan.  This was in the early 1980's while I was in college and got cable TV.  Our TV provider had WGN and sin

It has but Princeton and Gibson County is surrounded or crisscrosses by the White, Patoka, and Wabash Rivers with the Mighty Ohio only 30 miles away

 

I see. Is everything okay with you and your family (home, property, etc.)?

Probably like 7 or 8 years ago ? We got 8 inches of rain in one night , I was at work when I left at 7 am it took me till 11 am to make it home 17 miles away because all roads were flooded and shut down including US41 , I made it through the honey creek bridge just before State police shut it down , 5 min later water was flowing across bridge. Finally made it home after several routes taken just to turn around. Went to a bridge on state road 246 and actually watched a bridge washed away about a quarter mile from my house.

It was when I was in middle school that we nearly lost the lake. The entire family(My Grandmother was still alive) had to get out in the rain and drain the excess water(lost a lot of fish) before the dam had to be fortified and drainage system improved

 

I remember the storm you were talking about

Everything is lovely with me, I have great sports knowledge, good health, and make good money. Cubs are the World Champs and my Mother is healthy. It's all good my friend.

4 of those 5 things are indeed good. One stands out as bad though. Need those Cubs to go on another 100+ year run without a world series! :)

Nah I want a Repeat, yesterday was a sure punch in the gut. Cubs really dominated that game and I never thought at one time they would lose. That HR by Gardner was shocking but that is Baseball!

That made me laugh for some reason. Good to see you did not add :sarcasm: to it.

 

Seriously, glad to read all of that. You do come across like all is fine. :)

One of my best friends is a Marlin fan, and that game where Zeigler gave up 5 runs yesterday was even worse. Your game was just bad luck, that one was crazy lol. Cubs will be fine. Not saying they will get back to the world series again, but they should slowly gain on the division as the year advances.

I really don't have many complaints, I guess if I was Hue Hefner I would be happier :sarcasm: there is my sign. Nah everything in my life is actually pretty good, my parents are healthy, I feel ok just a little out of shape, make decent money, Cubs are the Champs, Colts have Luck and I like Ballard.

I used to run miles and miles, just getting old my friend. I probably need to get back into some kind of routine on the treadmill and just do a fast walk for a while to burn calories and get healthier.

What defines a Teams character is if they wollow in it or get back up and go on about business. They have to realize its one game and move on.

I need to lose 20 pounds myself. Am 5'9, 180 pounds. Could stand to lose 20 pounds. Have gotten really lazy lately. Shouldn't be too much of a problem though. Just stopped working out after high school and college. At 29 now, it caught up a bit.

I agree, losses never seem to bother the Cubs, this Cubs team anyway. They were so resilient last season in the Playoffs. Yesterdays loss made me a bit mad but things like that happen. I shouldn't complain as the Cubs had everything go right in the WS when it counted.

Yeah I am not sure why Maddon ever made him a starter. I didn't see it coming before the season. He just isn't good, I figured he would've rolled with Montgomery over him. This is looking like the Cubs about to drop 2 in a row to the Ultimate Franchise. We are the Champs but they are the Kings in the history of the game. The Yankees have a Very Good team this season.

I don't disagree with your last statement but.....I'm counting my blessings so far this season. It's a LONG season.

I like your Lineup and Pitching. It is early but it seems like the Yankees have great chemistry so far.

I was more upset with yesterday because we wasted a Great outing by Hendricks.

He gave up his share of hits. Yanks just ran themselves out of a couple of innings & committed a few costly errors. Cubs only had like 4 hits.

Yeah the Cubs didn't deserve to win that game yesterday. Justice was served

2 of them were HR's though and the Cubs played clutch Defense all day to stop any threats the Yankees had. Rondon is just inconsistent. I don't trust our Bullpen at all. I do like Davis but he isn't Chap.

That was ugly...

..a question...was their something with Matt Szuzur....I thought he was high quality bench guy who didn't mind being a bench guy

 

..'designated for assignment' means anyone can get him right?  Even the Cardinals?

..why did they do that?  Anybody know?

Oh. No.  Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera is in a lot of pain after diving for a ball. Looks like he dislocated a finger or hurt his wrist. We have so many players with injuries.

 

And now we have a rain delay. It should have come a pitch earlier.

Rain in NY. I hope we don't get another rainout. Mets leading 5-1 in the top of the 3rd.

 

Yeah that rule needs to be changed, Mets could get screwed 2 days in a row. I posted earlier that at least the Playoffs are different, if a game gets suspended before the 5th is completed in the Playoffs, the MLB just resumes where it left off.

    • If the Dodgers beat Tampa Bay and win the World Series this year, do you think anyone will discount it due to COVID and the altered postseason eligibility & structure? I think not - they would've still vanquished every team they faced, and coming back from being down 3 games to 1 against the Braves (Atlanta should be renamed to signify their constant choking) is impressive whether you like them or not.
    • Why do so many on here talk about how great tennesse is? They have to be the luckiest 5-0 team in history. The vikings should have beat them, The "we haven't played anyone narrative" pessimisim is laughable. The titans, steelers, ravens, packers being "elite" is ridiculous. Just because highly paid talking jacks  on tv say how great some teams are while ignoring most other teams(do the Colts get any coverage at all?) doesn't mean it's true. This team is as good as any of those "elite" teams out there. Yes, we will lose to the steelers because we always do, we will play as bad as we have to just like last year when Adam capped it off with a bad miss on a chip shot field goal with 9 seconds left. But all other of the remaining games are very winnable
    • JONATHAN TAYLOR ON THE CARRY, JONATHAAAAAAAN TAYLOR for 5, 1st down. I had to do it  
    • We will sweep the Texans and split with Titans so 10-6 is the probability. Titans are overrated, they won't beat us here.
    • If I was an owner I wouldn't hang division banners. People mock us for hanging a Final 4 banner in 2014 but yet think hanging a division banner (hypothetically for going 8-8) is ok? Think about how silly that sounds. I would rather be in the AFC Title Game than win my division, that is common sense.
