Sports Bio

I'm a baseball guy to the core. My dad took me to my first Cubs game in 1972; bled Cubbie blue ever since. I make it a point to attend at least 1 Cubs game each year. It gets harder and harder to go when you have to compete for tickets with people who 'Don't know who any of the players are because they took their names off the home jerseys.' I've been with the Cubs thru thick and mostly thin. But hey, it sure beats the hell out of watching the 'LUCKIEST' team in MLB from the other side of town. I mean, anyone could win the World Seires when you score 10 runs a game. I almost gave up on the Cubbies when they gave up on Maddux in 1992. It took a while to finally come around, and so here I am today.

I am also a Bulls fan. I remember seeing them at the old Chicago Stadium, being 1 of about 3000 people in the seats. This was back when they had such stalwarts as Quentin Dailey, Reggie Theus and Dave Corzine This was well before they drafted a young guard named Jordan.

My most memorable game that I was in attendance for: 2003 National League Divisional Series; Cubs and Braves; Prior vs. Maddux. I was torn. My favorite player, of all time, is Greg Maddux. But I wanted the Cubs to win. It was an awesome time. I was supposed to be the changing of the guard: The youngsters (Wood, Prior, Zambrano) vs. The best pitching staff of all time (Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz). It was for that very short time. As you can see, the old veterans are still around, and 2 of the youngsters have dead arms. Knowing what could have and should have been is what brings a tear to my eye (sniff).

I'm a golf nut too; but don't have the time, or money to play as much as I would like to.

Favorite player: Greg Maddux - best pitcher of this era. I think this was mentioned before.

Favorite ballpark: Believe it or not - Fenway. Wrigley just looks too old.

NASCAR or NHRA? NHRA all day long. The rednecks in NW Indeeyahna definitely won't agree.


Another Cubs moment: Listening to the 1983 playoffs while in Algebra. 13-0 behind Rick Sutcliffe.

Go Cubs! Go Bears! Go Bulls! Go Hawks!

"Juuuuust a bit outside."

I liked the part where after he 'threw' it, he's over there loosening up the shoulder like he wasn't properly warmed up. Of course that's why the 'throw' ended up where it did.

Lovie Smith becomes the first black head coach ......

I got a question for ya - who's the first black baseball coach to go to the World Series? Let's see, Frank Robinson was the first black manager, Cito Gaston was the first to win a World Series (and repeat), which I knew. Without looking it up, I'd have to say Gaston was also the first black manager. I can't think of anyone else between 1975 and 1992 it could be.

Lovie Smith becomes the first black head coach ......

One other thing . . . Will there be an uproar from the words "First BLACK head coach . . . " Instead of "First AFRICAN AMERICAN coach . . . "? That line written by the media, alone. shows where the race card is being played. Yeah, they (the media) seem to make a big deal about it. I suppose if they didn't, they wouldn't have much else to talk about (other than the game). I don't think there should be an uproar. If you heard Lovie Smith after the game, he mentioned himself as the first 'black' coach. Tony Dungy called himself 'African-American'. I think the bottom line is, you have two very good coaches, regardless of skin color, going to their first Super Bowl. Let's leave it at that.

Jackson, others shoot their way out of Indiana

TBH: that ND weed is probably purdy close to the Lake County weed I have access to. You know, fortified with all those Hammond/Gary mill minerals. Depends on the lake's current.

Now they have to live in Indiana. Unfortunate, perhaps, but I can't see it changing much. They probably have better weed in Indiana, anyway. Nah, there's a lot of that ditch weed that grows wild in some parts. It's somewhat unfortunate to live there, but it sure beats the hell out of living in Illinois. And yes, I have lived there, too. That's unfortunate!!

Lefty Yearns To Make It Right.

you seriously think that jim furyk is a better golfer than phil mickelson? YES! Funky swing and all. But hopefully with the loss of the he-hooters, that can be remedied.

Yes, I do too, enjoy watching Phil. It would be great to see him come back.

Lefty Yearns To Make It Right.

I'll believe it when I see it. Maybe this is his wake-up call, but he still has a LONG way to go to catch Tiger. Or, Jim Furyk for that matter. He's needed to shed some pounds for years, and to a point, equipment doesn't make a golfer. As long as it's properly fit to your swing, you can hit anything. Especially as a pro. The only reason he has new equipment is because Callaway just released a new line of Tour clubs (Tour Forged irons and FT-5 driver/fairways).
