Cubs Christmas Gifts
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah and so forth. The Angel Fan Wife was kind enough to get me a Ryne Sandberg jersey, plus some wonderful Marquette gear, so I guess I ended up on the nice list. I would love to hear what Cubs goodies some of you received.
As for the current Cubbies, here's what a few of them unwrapped.
Alfonso Soriano - Jugs Curveball Pitching Machine
Aramis Ramirez - "The Art of Cockfighting" (always good to brush up on the basics)
Jason Marquis - $100 Crate and Barrel gift card
Ryan Dempster - A.J. Burnett baseball card
Rich Harden - stack of hand towels (give it a sec)
Ted Lilly - Star Trek Holodeck to let him pitch in 2008 playoffs
Carlos Marmol - copy of K-rod's contract
Jeff Samardzija - a slider
Carlos Zambrano -a Livan Hernandez baseball card
Geovany Soto - Rick Wilkins' locker
Derrek Lee - 2005
Cubs Fans - a World Series Title (comes in gift card form and can only be redeemed in October, never expires but not accepted every season)
As always, feel free to fill the gaps for others associated with the Cubs.
