Look who I found

Friday, June 24th, 2005

If McPhail was looking for bullpen help here in Tennesse, I don’t think he was very inspired. Although the Diamond Jaxx won the game 7-6, it was mainly due to the fact that Jacksonville made more pitching and fielding errors than the Jaxx did. But it was good to see McPhail keeping score […]

The Sun Begins To Set On My Trip

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2005

I didn’t stay to see the end of this one in Philly (the score didn’t change much after I left anyway), but I did manage to listen to Lee and Ramirez win another one for the Cubbies. Both of them are closing in on thier respective top spots in the All-Star voting.
Vote Cubs 2005!!

NYC Letdown

Monday, June 20th, 2005

I’m still alive and well, tho the Cubs may be on life support, thanks to some poor pitching and the return of the real Neifi Perez. I’ll post my observations and photo pages later. I’ve been too worn out with this trip to take a moment and write. I’m on my way […]

2 Out Of 3 Ain’t Bad

Monday, June 13th, 2005

This series went completely opposite of how I thought it would go.
I thought the Red Sox would knock around Maddux, especially with the wind blowing out, but it was the Cubs including Maddux that carried the big bats in that game.
I though that Zambrano would come strong, espcially after a tough start last weekend, […]

And there was much rejoicing…

I was at the Yankee series 2 years ago and have told many people that the Wood/Clemens match-up was the most intense baseball game I have ever attended. Between the Karros’ homer and Remlinger striking out Giambi with the bases loaded, the energy in Wrigley Field had been unrivaled to any other game I […]

Mad Dog and New Englishmen

Saturday, June 11th, 2005

Forget all the hoopla over the first time the Red Sox and Cubs have played each other since the 1918 WS, today just served as another strike on the nail holding Greg Maddux’s HOF plaque on the wall.
I was concerned at the beginning of the game that the heat and humidity would wear out the […]

Infinite Improbability Driving

Thursday, June 9th, 2005

These replica uniforms are what players in the 1870s were sporting to the ballpark. These are on display at the Byron History Museum in Byron, IL, which is about 12 miles south of Rockford. I stopped here on my meandering journey to Chicago because Byron was the birthplace of Albert G. Spalding. […]

On The Road Again

Tuesday, June 7th, 2005

Greetings from beautiful Rock Springs, WY!
I’ve made it on the first leg of my trek through the American wilderness in pursuit of all things Cub. I left the homestead in California around 7 am and arrived here about 9:40 (after crossing a time zone), traveling around 850 miles.
I found myself at the Days Inn […]
