    Cubs Baseball is on the Air!!!

    Game 1 of 39 spring training games is on. Can't beat listening to Pat and Ron in February.

    2 up, 2 Down so far for Samardzija.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: Cubs Baseball is on the Air!!!

    No idea. I'm in my office. I share a subscribtion to MLB.com Audio with a guy here, so I'm listening to that. The other guy is in Arizona at the game. What a punk! 80 Degrees and Cubs Baseball right now would be awesome.

    It is essentially the same ratio of pre-season games to regular season games as the NFL has.

    Twins fans don't want to go kill themselves if they choke.


    And do you even realize what the Twins had to work with? They lose Santana and Hunter, and they are still one run away from the playoffs. Their payroll is half that of the Cubs as well.

    I don't remember wanting to kill myself. I think the deal is that when the Cubs choke you hear about it. When the Twins choke, no one cares.

    I talked to Cub fans that wanted to never go to games again, called in sick at work, read stories on fans who were giving up season tickets, fans who were going to follow new teams, fans calling in crying on radio shows after they lost last year.


    Obviously not all Cub fans are like this, but man you Cub fans are defensive.


    Oh, and I never said anyone cared about the Twins choking. They didn't even Choke at all.... that guy made the most rediculous claim saying they choked when they were predicted by everyone to have a bad bad season. That would be called overachieving. The Cubs had a great year and choked in the playoffs. Can't call it any other way than that.

    Sounds pretty similar to this board after a Cyclone game.
