It's been pretty quite in here again. I'm thinking my lack of interest in the Cubs lately has been because they have been sucking lately. What? They are 7-3 in their last 10 games, swept Colorado, split with the Phillies, took 2 of 3 from the Rangers and just shutout the Dodgers? I don't know what kinda Lost sideways world (or whatever the fuck you Lost fans are calling it) you're in, but in my world, the Cubs are still doing shitty.
So...we're going to introduce you to a guest blogger: gooseneck. gooseneck writes over at The Bigfoot Diaries, which is a pretty good blog, and he posts regularly. You should really check it.
Since the move I have found myself enjoying life a heck of a lot more, and working a heck of a lot less. And with all that free time, I have been able to do something that I really haven't had the opportunity to do over the last couple of summers... Watch baseball.
I have been watching at least a game a day for what seems like weeks now, and while that might seem boring to most, it fits perfectly into my new world agenda of laying on the sofa in the evenings and watching television.
Now, as a Cubs fan one might expect most games I watch are of the Chicago National League team, but that really hasn't been the case. We nodded out of our Dish Network renewal when we moved and opted instead for Mediacom, which to those of you who live in Zimbabwe, is a cable television outlet.
Unfortunately for me however, Mediacom doesn't have the Fox Chicago regional channels, nor Comcast which hosts most of the Cubs games. The team Mediacom does feature most is that outfit in St. Louis, and despite my hatred towards the birds in red, it is nonetheless baseball, and my grievances towards Dish Network are such that I am willing to take a splintered baseball bat up the ass so to speak, at least for the duration of this baseball season. I am blessed with ESPN's coverage of baseball, and the occasional Cubs games on WGN. Other than that, it's at least one hated team on television virtually each and everyday. (I have found that it is just as fun to root AGAINST the Cardinals as it is to root FOR the Cubs because lately the Cubs have been just as good as the Cardinals have been bad. The satisfaction is all mine.)
