    I am dreading this series in a big, big way. 4 games, too? Bleh.

    Better get your popcorn ready.
    Time for the real Blue Crew to stomp the yard again remember September?
    Were’s “Meltdown” Bradley I see his average is a little south of Mason Dixon lately.
    Get your little fagy wrist bands and the billy goat and bartman won’t save you.

    Think Blue

      “Better get your popcorn ready.”

      haha Whatever you say, T.O.

      “Time for the real Blue Crew to stomp the yard again remember September?”

      Actually, I’ve blocked it out of my memory. I do remember Dempster having a walkathon and the offense shitting the bed. Good the offense has scored 5+ runs the past 3 games.

      “Were’s “Meltdown” Bradley I see his average is a little south of Mason Dixon lately.”

      Actually, Bradley has been coming on strong lately.

      “Get your little fagy wrist bands and the billy goat and bartman won’t save you.”

      Homophobia is cool, and Billy Goats and Bartman are relevant right now aren’t they?

      Go Cubs!

        We suffered the Bradley experiment too although I like him over Edmonds anyday.

        1. biggz

          Bradley has been a good boy for us so far, and Edmonds is retired (or at least not on the Cubs roster). I’m not too sure what Edmonds has to do with this year…

    I run into so many “Cubs Fans” and ask them what was so great about Harry Caray? They usually say how he sang the 7 inning stretch or how he announced for so many years?? or how he used to get loaded and forget players names…
    This guy is on your uniform?

    Two words

    Vin Scully 60 years and counting

      “Two words

      Vin Scully 60 years and counting”

      Isn’t that six words?

      1. Dodger Blue

        one word:

        sweep!!!

        1. Butcher

          I guess it’s easier to count to one, isn’t it?

          1. Dodger Blue

            I get a kick out of watching the Loney blast in the playoffs.
            He sucked the air out of the windy city.

            Total silence

            1. Cardfan

              Third party opinion-
              DodgerBlue, you are a complete idiot.

              PS I’m old enough to have enjoyed Ozzie Smith hit a walk off HR in game 5 of the ’85 NLCS (first time in over 3000 frikin ABs, as well!) and then see Jack Clark hit a walk off HR in LA the next game to win the series. Talk about silence. Go Crazy folks!

              PPS Don’t diss on Harry – it reveals your shopping mall punk baseball “fan” naivety.

          2. Dodger Blue

            can you count to 100 I guess all Cubs fans are familiar with that not so easy number

            1. Butcher

              Now that you’ve mastered counting, you should consider punctuation.

            2. biggz

              Are you referring to the 100 years since the last Chicago Cubs championship? Why, no, I’ve never heard that number before…

              Man…if you’re going to troll, please be at least somewhat original.

  4. Butcher

    This site has become a total troll magnet lately, by the way…

    1. biggz

      Eh, they’re good for a laugh.

  5. Boardman

    Now it makes sense, the Cubs are taking the team approach to reach Manny’s 50 game suspension.

    “Honestly, I only took cuz my girl said it would help me get better wood”

  6. Dodger Fan

    I love the above bleacher nation entry. Really good writing. I love funny informal narrative. “…has sort of been, like, the best hitter in freaking baseball: .404 / .469 / .544. Yo.” Great Stuff.

  7. Dodger Fan

    Also now that I think of it, nobody else is making the point about JP.
    Here is a guy who is not just hot but is currently best hitting in all of baseball
    and nobody is saying it – except this inciteful blog entry.

  8. Dodger Fan

    And the choice of Audrina Patridge was outstanding.
