    Manny Ramirez Hits 450-Foot Bomb, Flips Bat Just Like Old Times (Pic)

    When former Red Sox GM and current Cubs president Theo Epstein signed Manny Ramirez to be a player-coach for the Triple-A Iowa Cubs, a lot of people thought it was a bad idea. During his career, Manny had pretty much established himself as one of the last people you’d ever want to mentor young players, […]

    Cubs Fan Learns He’s About to Be a Grandpa (Video)

    This one might seem like a stretch for a sports site, but what better excuse to write about an emotional video of a guy learning he’s going to be a grandfather than the fact that he’s wearing a Cubs jacket? It would be more convenient for our purposes if the guy went on to win an impromptu […]

    Chicago Cubs Celebrated The 100th Anniversary Of Wrigley Field Today (Video)

    In what could be construed as a sign that maybe, just maybe, it’s time to think about building a new ballpark, fans of baseball, Chicago, and really old buildings celebrated the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field, home to the lovable scamps of baseball, the Chicago Cubs. Remarkably, Wrigley Field isn’t the oldest ballpark in the major […]

    If you’ve spent any time at all observing sports mascots, you know that sometimes they get into playful fights with other mascots or fans. But it is possible to enrage a mascot to the point of getting punched in the face, and it actually isn’t even that hard.  All you have to do is take […]

    Even When the Chicago Cubs Win They’re a Disaster (GIFs)

    Like the headline there says, even when the Chicago Cubs win they’re a disaster. Yesterday the baby bears were in Pittsburgh playing the Pirates, and although they managed to avoid a season-opening sweep with a 3-2 win, they could not avoid making asses of themselves on two separate occasions. The first offense came courtesy of […]

    Ladies and gentlemen, we have the first nut shot of the 2014 MLB season. The lucky recipient is Welington Castillo, catcher for the Chicago Cubs, who took a foul tip off the bat of the Pirates’ Pedro Alvarez right to the crotch. Surprisingly, Castillo doesn’t seem particularly excited to be receiving this honor, instead standing straight […]

    You know who shouldn’t get into drunken fights outside sporting events? People who suck at being drunk and fighting. Unfortunately, the dude in the video you are about to watch did not have enough self-knowledge to avoid putting himself in this situation.

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/19/2013 — Nate Schierholtz

    The 2013 season has been another disappointing one for the Chicago Cubs, but that hasn’t been the case for Nate Schierholtz.  The 29-year-old right fielder entered Monday night with career highs in home runs (16) and RBIs (52), and he added to those totals in a big way during his team’s series opener against the […]

    This Day In Sports History (July 26th) — Greg Maddux

    It was on this day in 2005 that Greg Maddux became the thirteenth member of the 3000 strikeout club.  Maddux struck out Omar Vizquel in front of his home crowd at Wrigley Field; however, the Cubs would go on to lose the game 3-2 to the Giants. Greg Maddux enjoyed an incredible career that started […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 5/29/2013 — Dioner Navarro

    Chicago Cubs catcher Dioner Navarro entered yesterday’s game against the Chicago White Sox with just three home runs on the season, but by the end of the afternoon, he would successfully double that total while leading his team to victory. Navarro stepped to the plate four times on the day, and he would make the […]

    A beer shower seems like an appropriate reaction from a woman after her man has just allowed a home run ball to hit her in the head.  As for instances when a man attempts to protect his woman from a fly ball into the stands?  Well, we’d never expect to see a beer shower then, […]
