Geno,

If I have it pegged right, you are sitting there this morning with a raging hang over from the Jack Daniels but your stomach is in good shape from the Pepto chasers. It looks like Wiggly Field could be in for a cleaning as the D-Backs sweep into town!

I think Sweet Lou has managed a great series so far. He has the D-Backs right where he wants them and by pulling Big Z early he has him rested and ready to go on 3 days rest for game 4 but here is the beauty of it, he also pulled Lilly after only 79 pitches so he should be able to go on 3 days rest for the big game 5 when the Cubbies clinch the series on Sunday!!! Lou has my vote for manager of the year for the way he has led the D-Backs to think they have control of this series. Little do the unwitting boys from the west know but Lou has them right where he wants them.

One question, how has he gotten the high powered Cubbie offense to lay down so convincinigly? I mean having the top 5 batters go 1 for 22 in game one, having Aramis Ramierez strike out 7 times in two games, like the two guys say on the Guiness Stout commercial.....BRILLIANT!!!

PS: Do you know what time the city has scheduled the Victory Parade for the Cubbies????

Oh yeah, I forgot, they already had their celebration because they knew they would be ONE AND DONE!!!

LMAO

I know, I know...the fat lady is humming.

Some decisions don't always work out - ask Torre, or better yet ask your SSide guys Williams and Ozzie if they woulda made diff decisions to avoid becoming 2nd div tenants.

You can gloat all you want Windy but it will be the NL Central flag you will be displaying when we bet the avatar bet next year.

PS I hear Yogi in the background of that humming ("it ain't over........")

PPS I wish I hadn't stayed up to watch Lee and Ramirez flail in the 9th at that heater the guy was throwing. He looked like Jenks out there 'cept he made the save.

Fishy Fishy in the brook,

Come and bite my little hook.

Fishy Fishy in the lake,

Please don't be a water snake!

Hey Geno,

Be sure to wrap yourself tightly in that Central Division Flag, maybe you can use the other few that the Cubbies have won to ward off the cold bitter winds of defeat that continue to blow into Wiggly Field....99 years and counting

Tick Tick Tick

I will have my shiny 05 Championship Ring to keep me warm with it's glow!

Tee Hee

That '05 ring still has a glow. I didn't know they were eternal flames.

I got to admit you are getting more mileage out of that ring than any one hit wonder band got of their song.

That's like me still basking in the glow of the last BHawk Kup. Where do you draw the line? That ring is so old and tarnished that a bottle of the goo from QVC couldn't even put a glow on it. Better find a good tarnish remover if you need that ring to keep you warm because it's gonna be quite awhile before you see another.

Plus, you are lucky CNYTim is nice enough not to remind you about '06 anymore - and soon the '07 winner will make the '05 ring a distant memory. And don't even get me started on how many champs the Cubs have in their history compared to the WSox....but please go ahead and keep giving me the Eddie Haskell all in good fun - I probably only gotta take it for one more day.

PS Who knows which team has that whole "most ex-Cubs on their team" thing which we all know plays a major role on the outcome of the playoffs, right?

OH Fishy,

Now you are going to make me reply by stating that we have three and then you are going to reply that they were from years before television was invented and then I will have to reply that a championship is a championship, just ask the Yankees that are sitting on twenty something championships and then you will reply that our championships were won before your team was even created and then.....IT WILL BE SPRING TRAINING AGAIN AND WE CAN START FIGHTING ALL OVER AGAIN !

Geno,

Lou is outstanding. Not only does he have Big Z fresh as a daisy to pitch today, Lilly looking good for Tuesday, now he has Rich Hill ready to go in game 6 since he only tossed up 75 pitches yesterday and then Big Z can come in and seal the deal in game 7. Also, by having the Cubs bats lay down like they have in the first three games we should be in for an offensive explosion as the $300 Million worth of high powered bats Jim Hendry bought last year come to life and carry the Cubs to the first ever comeback from 0-3 to roar into the Championship!!!

And then Goldy Locks said this bed is too big, this bed is too small but this bed is just right and she fell fast asleep.....JUST LIKE THE LITTLE BEARS (CUBS) DID IN THE PLAYOFFS.

Nighty Night, sleep tight Geno, don't let the Windy Bugs bite.

LOL

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.
