Found September 18, 2012 on The Outside Corner:
PLAYERS: Rafael Dolis
TEAMS: Chicago Cubs
Ah the folly of youth. To some guys, there's simply nothing more amusing than a pantomimed *******. I'm guessing that's because most guys who find that particular activity enjoyable have never been on the receiving end of an actual *******. 99.9% of the time, guys who enjoy showing off their air ******* skills usually have the decently to limit it to bars or house parties where they're surrounded by like-minded (read: drunk) fellas and mildly horrified women. .1% of the time, they'll find themselves behind home plate at a Cubs game like this guy who decided that at approximately two and a half hours into the latest game ever to start at Wrigley Field between the Cubs and Pirates, he was going to showcase his hidden talent in a fairly aggressive fashion for all the world to see. Deadspin has the full video, but we've got a screencap posted above I was at last night's game in section 123, not more than 20 rows behind where this was all...

Show drops Cubs-World Series nod

The futuristic NBC show Revolution has removed a mention of the Cubs being the 2012 World Series champs that appeared on a Wrigley Field sign.

Kane County Cubs Are A-Coming

The Twitterverse says the Cubs have finalized plans with Kane County to move their Class A player development contract a little closer to home. With guys like Almora, Vogelbach, Amaya, Candelario, Dunston Jr. and so on possibly playing there next season, there should be some good crowds. The dirty, rotten Cardinals have already taken up the void left by the Cubs in Peoria. I haven...

With two more homers, Cubs' Rizzo continues to impress

Of all the worries the Chicago Cubs have about their young players going into next year, first baseman Anthony Rizzo is not one of them. Rizzo continued to show that he's the real deal in Sunday's 13-9 comeback win over the Pirates at Wrigley Field. He enjoyed his first two-homer game, including his first grand slam. He also drove in a career-high six runs, becoming...

Even NBC Has Given Up On The Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs are currently sitting with the second worst record in baseball and to add injury to insult,  just like many Northsiders, NBC just gave up hope on the lovable losers as well.  ”Revolution” is a new show on NBC which debuted this past Monday night, but the background in one scene looked different than when they were first airing in the Spring.   Originally...

Season in review: Ian Stewart

During the Winter Meetings the Cubs traded Tyler Colvin and DJ LeMahieu to the Rockies for Ian Stewart and Casey Weathers. Stewart would replace the departed Aramis Ramirez at 3rd base and would instantly be an upgrade defensively. That much we were sure of. Whether or not he would hit the ball much was something [...]

Cubs make TV series remove '2012 World Series Champions' from Wrigley scene

It looks like proclaiming the Chicago Cubs "2012 World Series Champions" on a new NBC series was even more science fiction than the beleaguered team could take. A scene from an early version of the network's new sci-fi series, "Revolution" — set 15 years into the future — showed a sign outside of a dilapidated, overgrown Wrigley Field which read, "...

Chicago Cubs lose 2012 World Series title sign on NBC's "Revolution"(Picture)

Like most of you, I watched the first night of NBC's new hit drama series "Revolution" and enjoyed the scene were the cast walks near Chicago's Wrigley Field covered in grass/weeds. For those of you with astute eyes, you might have seen something change since the trailer of the show was released. There was a "Chicago Cubs 2012 World Series Champs...

Starlin Castro Trips, Falls, Plays Dead

Starlin Castro has had an eventful season to say the least, and this just adds to it a bit. Favorite part is imagining what the umpire is thinking as he watches him slowly flop to the ground and then play dead.

Cubs, Kane County announce partnership

The Chicago Cubs and Kane County Cougars have announced a player development contract, making one of the Midwest League's most successful franchises an affiliate of the local favorite Cubs.

10 facts about the Cubs series

Cincinnati (88-59) continues its forward march to clinch the NL Central with a visit to Chicago beginning on Tuesday. It's there that they will meet the fifth-place Cubs (58-88) for a trio of games in hopes of shrinking their magic number from its current total of five. They'll face a Cubs squad who enters the series as winners of seven of their last nine, but still...

Congratulations On Your Internet Fame, Chicago Cubs ******* Guy

I’ve been to a lot of boring baseball games, and I’ve seen fans soldier through the lulls in action by reading books, playing video games and pretty much anything else besides “watching baseball”. Now, thanks to this clip from Deadspin, I’ve seen a guy pass the time by making ******* faces.It happened during Tuesday night’s weather-delayed game between the Chicago Cubs...

Daily Facepalm: Something I’ve Not Felt Since….

  There's been some unusual disturbances in the Force in the Cubs universe recently. Nothing on the scope of millions of voices suddenly crying out and being suddenly silenced, but more like when Luke went into that weird tree on Dagobah and you didn't know what the hell was going on. Movin' On Up The [...]

The Chicago Cubs Can’t Even Win The World Series In Fictional Wastelands

In new TV shows that didn’t necessarily look great but I still wanted to watch and eventually forgot news, NBC’s new apocalyptic drama Revolution debuted to pretty solid ratings on Monday night. In fact, according to the network that is about to end Parks and Rec and 30 Rock in favor of shows like Guys with Kids, Revolution had the highest rated debut for a drama since ABC...

Perception vs Reality: my final lockout post until the lockout is over

  Why is it that perception and reality rarely match up? I almost always perceive a situation as a more positive situation than the reality. For instance, I told myself there would be no lock out. I even went so far as to say the Chicago Cubs would win the World Series in 2013 if [...]

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs – Game 146

What an absolutely pathetic display yesterday.  Just downright awful.   If this team were a horse it would be shot.  They are heartless from the manager on down. I really have nothing else to say.  Pathetic. Jared Hughes should be shut down, not used four times in five days.  The guy is completely drained, but [...]
