   Balogreene  I heard a rumor last night. A man named Stanley was in Chicago, he left his cup.

Way to go Blackhawks!

   Balogreene  Do you realize the Cubs are above 500? They are in 3rd in their Division. My Mets fan-boss says we are helping the Mets, every time we beat the Nats (2 out of 3 )

   Iacta alea est  Balo, my Mets bona fides are these: saw my first Mets game in 1962 at the Polo Grounds. I've been a Mets fan as long as there've been Mets. That the Mets are still high in the standings is no surprise, in fact it is pretty standard behavior for them. The slide out of contention usually begins shortly after Memorial Day, and in truth it may have already begun. I always try to believe "this year will be different", but that's only happened twice. Go easy on your boss, more than likely he's got a summer of disappointment ahead of him.

   Balogreene  Iacta, I'm a 63-year Cubs fan, the last World Series they were in was before my 85-yr-old mom was born. I don't feel sorry for Met's fans, I still remember the summer (68? 69? ) they won it out from under us in September!

   Iacta alea est  Yeah,'69 was a good year for the Mets, do you remember who Jimmy Qualls is? He was the Cub (infielder, I think ) who broke up Tom Seaver's bid for a no hitter with a single after 8-2/3. I think that was '69 too. And BTW the Mets have begun their slide....they're now in second, have lost 4 in a row only 1.5 games ahead of Atlanta and about to be swept by those same Braves....all is back to normal.

   Iacta alea est  The Mets are still in 1st place. Undefeated at home. Yes, it is VERY Early. I read that the 'Dick's Sporting Goods" store in hell has sold out of skis and ice skates due to hell freezing over.

   Balogreene  Cubs swept the Mets yesterday. I'm loving it!

My boss is not, poor Mets, they aren't used to this.

   Balogreene  What is the World coming too? The Bleachers will not be open for the Cub's Opening "Night". There are two things wrong with that sentence!

   Ole buzzard  I guess the kind of reconstruction that's taking place in the bleachers couldn't be done over the winter. But Opening "Night"??? That borders on sacrilegious!!!

   Ole buzzard  Here's a news article about the renovations at Wrigley Field. Is it too early for the ivy to be green, or was it removed?

   Balogreene  Cubbies finished pre-season well. That means they will be horrible in the regular season, really, historically accurate.

   Surfhut  Seahawks or Patriots tomorrow? I'm rooting for Seahawks only because past player Steve Largent and I grew up together and I have a couple of great friends who live in Seattle. Big Football is as corrupt as anything/everything else these days. Tomorrow, I just want to see a good game.

   Clipped wings  A quote we often use at our house is "Can't they both lose?" is my feeling about this match up. Neither is a team I'd hope to see get to the Super Bowl. I'm sure the recent deflate-gate issue will have added to the number of viewers. Keeping a good book handy to read during the half time extravaganza however. Best part just might be the Budweiser puppy ad.

   Balogreene  For the first time in years I had no interest in this game and didn't watch it. Really didn't want either team to be there, but it sounds like it was a good game.
