It's Nice to Know I am Being Heard

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

Chicago Tribune beat writer Paul Sullivan just released this article stating that the Cubs suck. He goes on to mention that they suck by any definition of the word, but suck grandiosly when their high payroll and ticket prices are considered. None of that is new, but what Sullivan reports that is new is that the Cubs front office is finally aware of this.

For the record, I am smarter than the Chicago Cubs because I posted this on 4/10, this article on 4/13 and this article on 5/11. You know who else is smarter than the Cubs? Every single person on Earth. I don't read any Cubs blogs, but I have reason to suspect I wasn't the only Cubs fan making similar points.

Was this realization really all that diffult to foresee? It was like the Cubs front office was juggling plastic explosives in a boat and thought it was totally reasonable. Then after a few botched juggling attempts they kept at it. Only after another drop, a hole in the boat and the ship retaining gallons of water did someone think, "Wait....hang on a minute here.....this hole in the boat is actually a BAD just hear me out on this one, you guys...."

It's one thing to field a lousy team. It's another thing to command high ticket and concession prices, but you can't do both. Even Cubs fans will turn their backs eventually. If you're dating Halle Barry and she cheats on you, you might do your best to work through it and see to it that it doesn't happen again. But if the chick from Precious cheats on you, you tell her to get the fuck out.

That's how I roll.

Great Photo of Aramis Ramirez's Walkoff HR by the Chicago Tribune

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

I am all about giving credit when and where it is due. It is due. I just don't know where because I couldn't find it on the (where these two pics came from), and I would love to give someone credit for it. I am sorry for not acknowledging a job well done, Trib photographer, but I assure you I am not profiting from your good work.

Those two photos arranged like that is great work.

That's how I roll.

Cool Bannerhead Logo on the Chicago Tribune Today

I like it.

I wouldn't mind if the feathers were hanging from the, "C" in, "Chicago" and the, "T" of, "Tribune" were a Taser. As in "Don't Toews me bro".

Best Sentence of the Day

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

Without any context here is the sentence I read in today's Chicago Tribune.

"All night long and early Tuesday morning, he was full of energy, passing gas, defecating, swimming and beginning to learn how to dive."

That sounds like the best all-night activity I an 11-year old boy could ever imagine.

Here is where the story it came from. It's the second sentence in the 9th paragraph.

That's how I roll.
