astros

It remains to be seen how the Houston Astros will perform this season, in the wake of the what is perhaps the worst cheating scandal in baseball history. Will being called the Asterisks (and a lot of much worse things, many NSFW) everywhere they go be a distraction and hindrance?

Or will wearing the black hat and becoming everyone’s least favorite team galvanize and unify them? The bookies are banking on the latter. The Houston Astros currently have the second best championship odds behind only the New York Yankees right now.

As Super Bowl 2020 arrives, it’s time to reflect on the biggest of all the big games. The Buffalo Bills went to four straight Super Bowls and lost all four in the 1990s, but man did they give us the best Super Bowl of all time. Like Tom Petty said, “even the losers- get lucky sometimes.”

Obviously, they never did but sometimes history is better when it’s written be the losers. It wasn’t just the Buffalo Bills who made that Super Bowl so special.

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry “Financial Independence” an Impossible Myth

It’s certainly very commendable and admirable that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are leaving the British royal family. The concept of a monarchy (even though they have long had no actual political power in Great Britain) is a remnant of the Feudalistic era.

It’s kind of silly that the charade of royalty continues today, but that’s another topic for another time and space. The Duchess and Duke of Sussex are doing the right thing by leaving this anachronistic non-sense behind, but the idea of doing it for “financial independence?” Please. Their heart is in the right place, but c’mon, don’t insult our intelligence. The very concept is legitimately impossible right now, and we’ll delve into why.

Backlash Against Marquee Network Story of 2020 Cubs Convention

During his session today at 2020 Cubs Convention, club President of Business Operations Crane Kenney said he feared no boos; not for Marquee Network, nor anything else. Kenney told the assembled crowd he’s been booed before, for several things, including the jumbotron and the team mascot Clark.

The latter reference is poignant as the pants-less but friendly and inviting cartoonish bear was pretty much the headline story of Cubs Convention 2014. Why? Because he was a new addition to the club in a winter when the team made no real new additions to the player roster. The team was coming off a bad season (66-96) and moving towards the next one in which they were projected to be bad (they were, 73-89) again.

Chicago Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts, along with his sister Laura, were the first guests to come on stage for Ryan Dempster’s session at the 35th annual Cubs Convention Friday night, an endeavor that appears in the form of a late night talk show.

Ricketts’ intro and exit music was, wait for it, “Sly and the Family Stone’s “Everyday People.” You know this classic 1970s soul tune by its very familiar refrain: “Iiiiiiiiiiiiii am every-day people!” Yes, billionaires! So like us! We can relate to having a family business……..which Charles Schwab buys for $26 billion!
