He just wanted to be closer to his family.

Who were the last two college football teams to play at Wrigley?

(hint neither have football programs anymore)
(one last hint Midwest teams)

St. Louis University and Depaul in 1938.

ding

actually it was depauw vs st lewis

A DePauw shout on TCR? Now we're talkin....

Go Greencastle!

Monon bell'd

For those who were wondering, DePaul eliminated it's football program in 1939.

San Francisco State Vs. Father Flanagan's Boys Town. I cried when Spencer Tracey used the orphans to make a step stool and walk right over the goal line. Even Bill Cartwright couldn't stop him.

that was great Tim

man...b.harper hustles on everything. popup to shallow RF...he's 1/2 way to 2nd on an easy out.

now if he could quit taking every moment, AB, and pitch of the game personally.

...and if soriano could watch and learn...

AFL championship game on MLBN btw.

Hilarious. What I love about these by Tim is how well they capture Cub-dom (Cub-dumb?).

Bravo.

What I learned watching the opening announcers for the NU Ill game today.

You have your Sheffield (Avenue) and your Wavefield (Avenue)....

Jim Leyritz murders someone and the fix is in...on a Saturday, of course.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101120/ap_on_sp_...

"Testimony was inconclusive on whether Leyritz ran a red light on Dec. 28, 2007, when he collided with a vehicle driven by 30-year-old Fredia Ann Veitch, who died.

Defense experts testified that Leyritz may have been below Florida's 0.08 percent blood-alcohol level when the crash occurred, even though it was 0.14 percent three hours later."

Donte Stallworth approves.

Fuck Florida. This is disgusting.

Born in Chicago, raised in NJ...the pizza is way better in NJ/NY...just sayin'...

Where were you living when they seared off your taste buds?

lol

hey, some people like their pizza without 20lbs. of sauce and cheese between the crust and toppings...heh.

But why?

i dunno...i blame obama and pelosi and richard nixon and kanye west and willie horton and free masons.

don't forget about the KGC crunch...

Chicago makes more than just deep dish. Lots of great places with thin crust here.

Plus all the other wonderful Chicago traditions, like Italian beef sandwiches, and Chicago style hot dogs.

and the Best Gyros in the world.

I read this blog almost daily but seldom comment, your baseball insight is far beyond me. However, when we start talking pizza, I have to put in my two cents. I spent several years as a touring musician and have had slices of pizza throughout the US and Europe (note in Germany, the word that looks like pepperoni is not pepperoni, it is pepperchini peppers). NY/NJ, hands down, have the best slices of pizza plus you can get served and on your way in less than 30 minutes. My Chicago pizza attempts have ended in debacles. I'm sure there are some great local spots, but the locals we asked did not apparently send us to them. However, Chicago does have the best after gig, go out on the town because there are certain cheap dive bars that don't close until god only remembers what hours.

BTW, thanks for all the great Cubs discussions and information this site provides. Whenever I have Cubs discussions with my friends that are casual fans, I appear to be a genius armed with the insight you all have provided. Thanks.

Cubs, Red Sox, Nats, O's and White Sox

That actually says teams that have shown interest in the past... I guess if Howard is a $25 million player, then Gonzalez must be... but that seems a little much for what he brings.

What's with the odd formatting in the comments? Some of the later ones are appearing before the earlier ones (even if they aren't in response to any other comment). The order is all messed up.

The site is possessed. Same thing happened on halloween

"Talks between the A's and Japanese right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma have broken off, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle."

...and the A's ruin that for everyone, including Iwakuma.

they knew they didn't need a SP that badly or wanted to spend the money...though Iwakuma is supposedly demanding 15+m a year...which is stupid.

  • I definitely hang around here looking to reply to your comments as noticed by my nearly year long absence.

    there's a fine line between posting something relevant, useful or at least humorous versus posting something irrelevant, useless or unfunny...actually it's rather quite a thick line and easy to see for most people not named crunch.

  • I certainly am digging the RISP machine Zobrist version.

  • Cubs are taking advantage of bad D by their opponents -- did it a few times in PIT and the Nats botched 2-out rundown leads to 3 Cub runs in the 8th. Which were nice to have.

    I hope Kyle had fun at the dance party -- he was terrific.

  • i hope he's getting more consideration for the 2-slot vs lefties, too.

  • I hope we can dispense with the Zobrist RISP concerns.

  • Is this heaven?

  • They call me Schwarberino because I'm basically Ruth,
    and as long as we're rapping I'm gonna tell you the truth:
    This team would be even better if I wasn't laid up;
    we'd win the World Series, the Superbowl, and the Stanley Cup.
    As long as we're at it, I'm putting the Premier League on notice.
    Hell, if I were healthy, Epstein could run for POTUS.
    My busted knee's even sadder than this presidential kerfuffle,
    but my first rehab assignment will be the World Series Shuffle.

    I am avoiding grading papers.

  • Phil,

    With Mutton on the DL now, does Victorino finally get to Iowa?

  • Chat ... is happening.

  • I agree completely with Dusty. I appreciate him much more as the Nats skipper than as the Cubs.

  • so, what you're saying is you keep bringing up something over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over like you did with this issue for years back in the day...and obviously still into today...

    ...but that's fine if you do it.

    brb, forming my next dozen replies for why you should shut up and never say anything about it again...oh wait, no i'm not because i'm not hanging around looking to tell you to shut up about repeating the same thing over and over and over and over...

  • Heyward looked fine shagging flies in BP. Wouldn't surprise me to see him in the line up tomorrow.

  • this seems like it could be an interesting series...parachat worthy.

  • speed leads...nothing ever changes. that's been a dusty thing since...forever.

    holy shit, really? I made the comment because I had just discovered this novel trait that Dusty possesses.

    btw, check out the leadoff hitter of the WS champion KC last year.

    waaaat????? again with the knowledge dropping, I literally had no idea.

  • speed leads...nothing ever changes. that's been a dusty thing since...forever.

    worst part is he's barely a speedster...just the best fitting.

    btw, check out the leadoff hitter of the WS champion KC last year.

  • Gotta make sure you're not clogging up those bases.
