Wilkomen, Bienvenue, Welcome, Come on in

New Poll Sugests 64% of Cub Fans in Favor of Proposed Sistine Chapel Ceiling Modifications

Welcome to my attempt at the wide, wide world of blogs. I will rant, dissect the Chicago Cubs, give my opinions on music, politics, dance parties and much much more. You are invited to play along! Words of wisdom appearing fortnightly, or more often if time permits.

Special thanks to all 40,884 of you who came out to Lou and Dan's Birthday Fiesta last night at Wrigley. We had fun. Lou and I were making prank phone calls to Jim Hendry's cell phone after we took the lead in the bottom half of the 7th. Lou does the best Uecker impression. All night he was quoting Major League, both in reference to the plays on the field and used as motivational tools during key game situations. Before The Riot's chopper to the pitcher that resulted in a hit, Lou yelled to him in the on-deck circle, "This guy threw at his own son in a father-son game." If you were watching the game on TV you could still see The Riot laughing while he was standing on first base. Moments like that illustrate Sweet Lou's ability to connect with his players in a way that Dusty never could.
