What the Cubs need to WIN WIN WIN

What the Cubs need to WIN WIN WIN !

I've been helping at my church's VBS (vacation Bible school) this week and noticed these two boys wearing Derrek Lee shirts playing on the same team in tug of war.
It then dawned on me that what the Cubs need are TWO Derrek Lee's.


BTW, one of the next pics (not shown) is of one of the "Derrek Lee's" brothers (wearing a Pujol's shirt) congratulating the twin Lees on their win in tug of war..

When baseball fans name subdivision streets...

Fenway Park
(I think someone is a Red Sox fan...)


(I think someone is a Giant's fan...)

If you had the honor, what would you name the streets in a new sub-division?

What would you name the neighborhood?

Feel free to reply here with your answers.

Happy Birthday Harry Caray!

Happy Birthday Harry Caray!

I have a funny Harry Caray story to share.

Many years ago, just after Harry had left as the White Sox broadcaster but hadn't signed with the Cubs yet, my friends and I met Harry and his wife.

A large group of us were on Rush Street on a weekend. We had a mix of Cubs and White Sox fans there, including some members of the Sox Supporters. (Are they still around?)

We weren't bar-hopping, just seeing what was to be seen there...and we spotted Harry and his wife.

All the Cub fan girls in the group said Hi to him and kissed him.
A week later he signed with the Cubs as their announcer. Imagine that!

Happy Birthday Harry! (From the WGN sports blog

Chicago Bears Cityscape photos

My family drove thru downtown Chicago Sunday night.
(No, we didn't attend the Cubs convention)

Here are some of the photos I took of the Chicago cityscape.

You can click on a photo for a larger view.

Here is someone's front yard inflatable Chicago Bear player.
Where do you buy one of these and do they come in a Chicago Cubs uniform too?
