    I thought it was time to change things up a bit. I have focused on Iowa State and the upcoming Spring Game, I have also voiced thoughts about March Madness and the Alford hiring; now it’s time to shift the attention back to the Cubs. I realize not everyone is a Cubs fan, but I think most at least have followed their terrible drought up to this point.

    So, it's what, six days til Kerry officially hits the DL? Or 6 days til the Cubs fall out of first place?

    At least the started spending some of that money they've been making over the years. Quite a lineup....hope the pitching can overachieve, like many of the recent champs. There's always this year!

    Wade Miller just got the 5 spot over Prior. I had been nice that we don't have to worry on wheter or not Wood and Prior will be healthy this year. Looks like Prior may be pitching at Iowa for a bit. I will have to catch a couple of games.

    thats funny right there..i dont care who you are.. thats funny



    hahaha


    oh and GO TWINS!!!!



    i will admit i cheer for the cubs when they dont play Min just because..well..im in iowa...and almost every1 like the cubs..and half of my family is yankee fans...


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I cannot wait, with the batting order that we have, it will be tough not to get pumped. Did the Cubs ever settle on the 2 spot? Wonder how long till A-Rod comes to the Cubs. Still think mid season

    Cardinals this year Cubs next year these people are most likely Cardinal fans since they won the World Series.

    Yeah well some of us are REAL Cardinals fans through thick and thin, always have been and always will be. I love the Cardinals like I love the Cyclones. Not everyone who lives in Iowa is a Cubs fan.

    BTW, for some reason, it looks like Aardsma will be the last guy in our pen. I'm not quite sure why the Cubs enjoy former White Sox in their pen, for that matter.

    I can't wait for the season to kick off... and since I moved from the midwest to Dallas, I'm so excited about the Cubbies coming to Texas for inter league play, and they get to play Sosa... :) Anyone in Dallas June 19-21...I have extra tickets for each game those 3 days!

    5 more days until I wear my Alfonso Soriano jersey around campus!!! I love that jersey and I have 8 years to wear it unlike the Greg Maddux and Fred McGriff jersey that I had bought before this one.
