Cub fan, Jail man

Here's a picture of Governor Rod Blagojevic on Opening Day last year at Wrigley Field. He was there for the unveiling of the Ernie statue.

I don't know Rod personally (I met him twice in passing--the last time was at Game 2 of the 2008 playoffs), but I understand he really is a die-hard Cubs fan since childhoood.

On the other hand, I just read the statement from Patrick Fitzgerald. One of the potential charges involves extorting the Tribune to fire editorial staff in exchange for the state securing the sale of Wrigley Field.

That is so Cubs.

A die-hard Cubs fan may be going to jail for (among other things) trying to extort the Cubs, and in the process helps to make our state the laughing stock of the nation.

That is so Cubs.

Santo rejected again

I can't believe it. The Hall of Fame rejected Ron Santo again today. (Here's the article)

He fell nine votes short.

I'm glad for Ron that he didn't allow cameras to be there this year when he got (or didn't get) the call. I know it broke his heart, but at least he didn't have to try and put a good face on it for the cameras.

We feel your pain, Ron. It's moments like this that inspired us to create our logo.

Greg Maddux

I know you probably won't be going into the Hall of Fame with a Cubs hat (or that mustache), but you'll always be a Cub to us. Congrats on a great career, Greg, and Larry Himes--we'll hate you forever. (No offense pal, but wow did you blow that one.)
