    Cubs

    Even with spending money in the off-season, the cubbies find themselves in dead last blowing a 4-0 lead in the 9th against the brewers. I didnt believe there could be a cursed franchise, but the cubs have left no other explanation for it. Whatever can go wrong does...oh well just wait till next year.......

    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."

    Re: Cubs

    Yeah but you wont see me talking about the cubs or anything pertaining to them around mid may. This seems to be the time when they have fallen out of contention.

    Re: Cubs

    Tonight the Cubs have made Jeff Suppan look like a cy young candidate. Prince Fielder has owned the Cub pitching the last two nights. Sad.

    The Cubs did not blow any lead in the 9th last night, nor have they given up a grand slam this year. I have no clue what you are talking about?
