.5 a game lead in the wild card. Prayers, vibes, and best wishes accepted. All out cheering encouraged as well.
Let’s hope that he provide offense and solid defense at shortstop as the Cubs make a playoff push these last 2 months of the season.
Thanks for sharing F and F.
This article has a so many truths in it…it scares me. And it relates to the Cubs, of course, but more importantly, to each and every one of us in our daily life. Business, Personal, Sport, Spiritual…whatever part of your life, it don’t matter.
Hustling in life is essential if you want to get the best out of yourself in your endeavors. I have seen countless people complain that they are not getting what they want out of a situation, or just coming up short….and frequently it is the little things like “not hustling on your way to 3rd base” that hold them back. They are so close…but a bit lackdasical and “expect it to come there way” (like the author Greg Couch refers to the Cubs attitude this year).
Sometimes I want to just scream at them…but the fact is, no one listens when you scream (And I learned in my teens that yelling/screaming is just an ineffective way to communicate despite the immediate feel good feelings).
Hustle Sean, Hustle. Don’t be a whining lazy yank…be a hustling, hard working American.
It’s a beautiful thing – the headline on Yahoo sports says “Prior Dominates Clemens” – anyone care to join me in Chicago this October?
I have been in the virtual waiting room online since 7:30 a.m. this morning – hoping to get a chance at single game tickets. Freesia is in line at Wrigley waiting for her chance. Her husband Mark, I hear is also online making an effort. Hopefully someone will come through for the good of the group.
Would like Chicago White Sox Ticket, Marlins Series in Sept, and Braves in October. We’ll see what happens.
Update at Noon CST
Subject: I quit
Hey I gave up at Wrigley. It’s now noon and the last round of numbers to be called was in the low 2000’s. Plus, before I left, they announced on the PA that even though all these numbers had been called, like a thousand of those people were still just waiting in another staging area. Only about 300 people had actually gotten up to the window to buy tickets. So I’m home now, trying online and on the phone. Hopefully we can come up with something. Just wanted to let you know.
Cubs offer Maddux 2 year deal
this would be superb!
Free Agents available
Seems like baseball never stops. All these free agents available…hopefully the cubbies will make some smart moves in the off-season to shore up the team for another run.
