   Balogreene  Cubs lost, it was only 64, and it's been a long few days. But, we spent today at Wrigley, that made it perfect.

   Ole buzzard  With all that has been going on this summer in the world and at home, I've completely lost track of Major League Baseball. I just realized last night that the Braves have only eight home games left. Where did the season go?

   Balogreene  Cubs lost, always. Isn't that enough to know?
8 hours ago .




   Balogreene  My mom's best and oldest friend, my "Aunt" Ruth died about a month ago. I was able to get inexpensive tickets from Northern VA to Chicago, and my sister is willing to put us up, and go to the memorial service in Rockford. I can't wait, over thirty years since I've been in my hometown. But, my sister and I are going to a Cubs game. One more chance to go to Wrigley. I am so excited, and thanking my Aunt Ruth constantly.

   Ole buzzard  I've said it before and I'll say it again: There is no finer venue in all of Major League Baseball than Wrigley Field. May it forever be the Cubs' home.

   Balogreene  Daniel Snyder, owner of our hometown team the Redskins, wants to build a new stadium because FedEx field is 17 years old! I would so love to remind him of the Nice Little Place on the North Side (Wrigley Field ) that is 100 years old this year, and the best place in the world to watch baseball.

   Iacta alea est  The politicians are going to tell Snyder, "No stadium unless you change the name"...Snyder will agree to the trade. I believe this is Snyder's plan.

   Iacta alea est  Mei, long ago I was a goalie for my college hockey team. And I tell you truly, I would've much preferred a puck to the head before taking one in the ole' snerdley's. The pain level differs by several orders of magnitude. In fact I am surprised that years later I co-produced my two beautiful daughters.

   Clipped wings  At last, my favorite time of year has almost arrived. Time for college football! I was anxiously waiting to see if DirectTV would carry the SEC channel. Finally they announced it just before my personal deadline to switch to Dish. I hate change and wasn't looking forward to that prospect.

   Balogreene  I just wanted to say, Go Cubs! let's see if you can stay in last place ALL season. Why do I love that team so?

   Ole buzzard  Balo, because regardless of their record, the team is just so lovable. Not to mention that they have the BEST venue in all of Major League Baseball.

   Rake King  As it turned out, the other game effected us, and our loss still moved us on. When I was younger that was called "back dooring"

   MeiDei  My son showed me an old picture on FaceBook yesterday of Pope Benedict and Pope Francis kneeling in prayer together - naturally it was captioned w/Benedict saying Germany & Francis saying Argentina. I like to think that whomever the Devil was for - didn't make it : )

   Rake King  I follow soccer and have a soccer package from Direct TV, so mine was not one of those coin toss guesses, but Argentina played a very good game, the breaks just didn't go their way. Messi is a World class player for Argentina, and he was exhausted at game end. Germany has been building their team for 10 Years, and congrats to them.
