I have precious few vacation days, but one is being used today. I have burgers ready to grill, I have relatively cheap beer and a 52 inch tv just waiting for baseball.


You are a great American.

I'm in heaven: today is the first Opening Day where, not only do I not have to skip work to watch the Cubs ("blue flu"), IT IS my job to watch the Cubs. Boing.

Here's hoping you get to run the white W flag up that pole.

Ah, let the irrational hoping begin! I watched Major League over the weekend (annual Opening Day tradition) just to get ready. Here's to hoping we won't need to copy and paste the f-bomb thread too often today!

4 hours until anything Cubs-related comes on. Think I'll pass the time by trolling a co-worker. I'm going to text her and tell her I need to see her in my office, and see how much time passes before I get a text saying something to the effect of 'Fuck You'.

Thanks for the idea Dave. Granted, I'm actually at work, but I'll have somthing to keep me busy when I am traveling out of town for work next week.

I'm really dumb, because that took me a while to get. And then I did. And then I smiled.

My understanding is it's blacked out (unless your cable/satellite provider has its own mobile/online platform that you can use).

This whole work thing sucks. The last four years, I was able to just skip class to watch the games; now I have to DVR the game and avoid BN, Twitter and Facebook til after I watch it.

Don't worry, I'll text you the outcome.

Unless I am wrong -- and I am never wrong -- there are no blackouts for the radio broadcast via the MLB app. Only the video is blocked.

I have this idea for a super hero, whose name is Mr. Right, because he is never wrong. His catch phrase would be: "I am NEVER wrong!" But that would be the only thing he ever says.
