    Cub fans: ivy green on opening day?

    Any Cub fans know if the ivy has ever been full green on opening day? I know I can't remember it ever being green for at least several weeks into the season, sometimes well into the majority of May.

    I have a big ivy wall at my place 3 miles from Wrigley that's suddenly almost completely green this morning. Pretty safe bet the Wrigley ivy is the same.

    Put him/her on ignore, it works well. Only problem is the messageboard block his/her posts when others quote them.

    Not doubting you, but where from the street can you see in? I have been there only twice and can not remember.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I love St. Louis as well, and although I am in no way a Cards fan, I think the passion they have for baseball is awesome. But the way that some claim St. Louis but not Missouri has the same ring to it that many hate of the Hawkeye fan base -- students come from Chicagoland and become Hawkeye fans but hate on the entire state of Iowa. WTF? Don't like it? Please leave!

    Can't wait for Opening Weekend at Wrigley, regardless of the ivy's color. But that would be a sweet bonus!

    I hit Mesa last week....so my Spring Optimism is already gone. But look out for 2015! THAT'S the year the Cubs bring home the title.

    There is an elitist air to many St. Louisans - just ask them, and they will tell you matter of factly, "I'm not fom Missouri; I'm from St. Louis."
    Can you blame them? Who wants to be known as being from the state of Missouri?


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Perhaps Illinois should annex St. Louis to offset the corruption of Chicago.
