What the event truly is, when you actually examine it, is a three day long native advertisement for Cubs tickets to the upcoming season.

A native advertisement that costs $125 to get into by the way. Typically, Cubs Con is a chance for more upbeat and positive stories to be produced en masse, but that is certainly not the tone this January. The Cubs fan base is currently pretty upset with the club for two major reasons.

Petr Cech, as you can see from the cartoon above, is the only Premier League goalkeeper to have ever been “Simpsonized.”

He announced his retirement, effective at the end of the season, on Twitter today.

As of right now, the injured ankle belonging to Tottenham Hotspur striker and talisman Harry Kane is reportedly too swollen to be scanned. It won’t be until after the swelling subsides that a true, full assessment of the joint can be done, but it is feared Kane could be out of commission for over a month.

The fact that it is still this swollen, two days after Tottenham lost 1-0 to Manchester United at home in Premier League competition, is obviously not a good sign. According to The Guardian:

It’s 2019 NFL mock draft time! The order is now set, up until the divisional round of the playoffs. Team needs were sometimes, but often not taken into account, as it’s still early for a 2019 mock draft in the purest sense.
