Notorious Birthdays

Anton Cermak was born on this day in 1873. He becomes the Mayor of Chicago, attends the World Series at Wrigley Field with FDR, and then is shot right in front of the President a few months later. Read his story here.

Billy Jurges was born on this day in 1908, during the Cubs last championship season. He later becomes a Cub and is shot by a female fan. All the details of that notorious event are here.

Mother's Day

I just got off the phone with the mother in your life, and you know what she told me?

She said she really, really wants a Just One Bad Century shirt for Mother's Day. It's true. If you order today, it will be there in time for Mother's Day. I can't force you to make the mother in your life smile, but remember, you can get them right here, and it's easy as pie. (Although not as delicious as the pie she makes...just one of the many things she has done for you over the years. The woman just wants a shirt--it's the least you can do.)

In honor of Sigmund Freud

The father of psychoanalysis would be celebrating a birthday today if he were still alive.

Of course Freud had absolutely nothing to do with the Cubs, but this believer in Freud's theories did. If you haven't heard the story before, you're never going to believe it.

I know she's a local girl (Downers Grove), and I know she's pretty, but whoo boy, singing is not on her list of accomplishments...
