Talkin' Baseball

This afternoon, I had the experience of participating in a podcast for the first time on Julie DiCaro and Alex Quigley's Excellent Sports Adventure Podcast.  While I am not going to ever replace even the dismal Chip Caray in a broadcast booth, I had a good time discussing our adventures at the Cubs Convention and somehow came out as the optimist in the group about the season.  I hadn't even been drinking, though I suggest you do before listening to my rambling.

In other breaking news found by Rob G. over at The Cub Reporter, Ben Sheets is still not a Cub despite promises made by Canadians.  Those hosers got me all excited for nothing, eh.

Also, it appears the Cubs are doing their damndest to undo every bit of the last offseason by getting as right-handed as they can by looking at Jermaine Dye and Xavier Nady as their fourth outfielder.  This would presumably bump the lefty, Micah Hoffpauir, off the roster and tilt that lineup further to the right than Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh.

This is the point in the year when I really wish football would do a better job of distracting me, but I'm not the biggest fan of blowouts and poor place-kicking, so I'm kind of out of luck there.   Do the hockey playoffs start soon?

I don't know if I can come up with a comment as insightful as Anonymous's, but I'll try: How about getting distracted by NPU's fine basketball team!! Your alma mater man! :)

That's true Arnold, the pride is back at NPU. They have turned a corner on the road to eventually bringing a sixth NCAA Division III Mens Basketball Championship back to Chicago. Watch out for the Vikings.

Also, in case anyone is wondering, Anonymous was trying to get free advertising so that is why his comment was deleted. Didn't want anyone to think I was pulling a Sullivan and blocking those who disagree with me.

Also, I totally disagree with that sports thing you said the other day!
