#BNBlogathon Check-In: Hour 20

Chicago Cubs

dusty sleeping blogathonI am currently blogging – here, on Facebook, on Twitter (hash tag #BNBlogathon for those who want to jump into the fray themselves), and on Snapchat – for 39 hours straight, until slightly past MLB’s August 1 non-waiver Trade Deadline, thanks to your generous donations to Make-A-Wish. I’ll be doing recaps on the process throughout the day, but you’ll also see normal posting (Bullets, news, Pre-Gamin’, EBS, etc.), as well as a significant uptick in rumor/trade posts.


WOW. With all the walking, some posting craziness just before the game, and then the game – HOLY THAT GAME – it’s been a long time since I had a chance to check in.

Total Posts So Far:


News and Rumors Since the Last Check-In:

I popped up a rumor bit before I left for the game, but to be honest, I’ve gotta check back in on the rumor mill. The game so thoroughly threw me off schedule (in a great way). Joe Maddon spoke before the game and said he wasn’t aware of anything percolating for the Cubs.

Most Interesting Tidbit Since the Last Recap:

The game. The game. The game. I can already tell you with confidence it’s one we’re going to remember for a long time.

Current Thoughts About the Chicago Cubs’ Trade Deadline Strategy/Execution:

I have to wrap my head back around it after that game. Words are only just now starting to form at my lips on command.

Current Beverage/Stimulant of Choice:

This, which has the helpful side effect of pepping me up a bit:

Where I’m Writing:

Mostly at my place, but I also did write a post at the game, as promised!

Did I mention the game?

Strangest Thought Passing Through My Mind:

I was completely exhilarated by that game, obviously. But is it going to drain me further? Like, am I about to mega-crash? What’s a mega-crash anyway?
