Wrigley Field - The Ultimate Set-Piece

Thursday, May 24th, 2007

While the Cubs are in California, Hollywood came to Wrigley Field for the filming of a scene from “The Express”, a movie about Ernie Davis, the first african-american man to win the Heisman Trophy. He was drafted first overall in the 1962 NFL draft and tragically died of leukemia before playing in a single pro […]

Bloggity Blah

Monday, February 12th, 2007

So GROTA did a little follow-up on the whole “MLB forbids teams to talk to bloggers” snafu and finds that there has been no “official” rule handed down on the subject.  There are still the long-standing rules covering accreditation that pretty much rule out bloggers from getting a cushy press-box seat.

Pressure

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

Suicide is not funny.  Yes, it can be a cry for attention or help, but to get to that point, you have to be so emotionally desperate if you feel that your death is the only way to get people notice or have sympathy for you.
It’s also an incredibly selfish act.  Killing yourself because you […]

TribCo CEO Merry-Go-Round

Saturday, May 6th, 2006

Of note in the continuing saga of whether or not the Tribune company will sell the Cubs - or even get taken over due to sagging stock prices - the CEO of TribCo’s entertainment division stepped down today.  Dick Askin (a name that sounds like something Bart Simpson would use in a prank phone call) […]

The ‘89 Cubs

Friday, October 14th, 2005

Not not these guys.
There appears to be a band named ‘The ‘89 Cubs’. Their sound can best be described as ‘depression rock’. Imagine a Ben Folds Five album played on an old victrola set on 45 instead of 33 and you have some idea of what to expect from this band out of […]

Walken 2008

Thursday, October 13th, 2005

So Apple introduced the Video IPod yesterday along with purchasable videos and TV shows. While their selection is limited right now, I did manage to download possibly the 3 of the best music videos ever made - “Where the streets have no name” by U2 (the one filmed on top of the liquor store […]
