Hey, everybody, the Cubs didn’t lose yesterday! That is right. They didn’t lose yesterday. Man, what a great feeling.

Yep, that is what this season has become. I am happy because they couldn’t lose. That is awful. But we move forward because that is what Cubs fans do.

And what is the treat we get for moving forward? The Cubs get to play three straight games against the only team that is actually worse than them! Woo-hoo. Bring on Hunter Pence and Wandy Rodriguez. What a weekend at Wrigley it will be!

Lance Berkman: The Feel Good Story of the First Half

New York isn’t for everyone. Lance Berkman can certainly attest to that. He was shipped off to the Bronx last season and began his tenure as a reserve player. This simply didn’t suit the man who had been the face of the Houston Astros since the the days of the killer bees in Texas. Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell had a long run of success at Minute Maid Park, but Bagwell shouldered the load upon their departure.

It is no surprise that a Saint Louis Cardinal arguably has the best offensive statistics in the National League at the break.

Chicago Cubs WIN! And Rod Blagojevich is hoping to as well!

Good morning and happy Friday. I hope each and every one of you out there among the Cubs Faithful is having a wonderful start to the day. Or middle of the day. Or in two days, basically whenever you read this.

I have spent my fair share of time, as well as many others’ fair share of time, inside Wrigley Field, and there were only one or two times the weather made the experience more miserable than it did on Tuesday and Wednesday night. It was horrible. Call it committed or just plain stupid, either way, it was COLD.

So, with that out of the way, let’s start throwing out some random and obvious thoughts and see what sticks against the wall. So, here we go …

• Hey, I can’t see to well … was that just series victory? Really, the Cubs won a series?

Houston Astros Foul Ball Couple to Get Web Redemption (Video)

You’ve probably seen this video from last season, the infamous Houston Astros “foul ball” couple. Here’s a video from MSNBC after the jump. It shows a rather douchey ‘Stros fan saving himself in order to let his girlfriend get drilled by a line drive.

Yeah, this girl certainly knows how to pick ’em doesn’t she? So much for that “bad boy” thing this guy is trying to do- look at how dangerous he is. Anyways, Tosh.O on Comedy Central is going to give them a “Web Redemption” on next’s week show. Tuesday 9 CT.
