Theo, Wherefore Out Thou Theo

But soft, what light through yonder Wrigley breaks? O…it is my Cubbies, oh, it is my team President. O that he knew he were. He speaks, yet he says nothing; what of that? His eye discourses, I will answer it. Oh, I am too bold, ’tis not to me he speaks. Two of the fairest stars in all the heavens, having some business, do entreat his eyes to twinkle in their spheres till they return. See how he leans his cheek upon his hand. Oh, that I were a glove upon that hand, that I might touch that cheek.


O Theo, Theo, wherefore art thou Theo? Deny thy Red Sox, and refuse thy Boston. Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my rather large paycheck, and I’ll no longer be a Lovable Loser…’Tis but thy name that is my enemy, thou art thyself, though, not a Henry. What is Henry? It is nor hand, nor foot, nor arm nor face, nor any other part belonging to a man. O be some other name. What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet; so Theo would, were he not Theo called, retain that dear perfection which he owes without that title. Theo doff thy BoSox, and for that name which is no part of thee, take all Cubs Nation.

Imma Feelin’

…pretty good about the Chicago Bears in the 2nd half.  I thought the 2nd half was going to be a bear but not so much.  Green Bay and New England are going to be very tough but the rest of the games are win-able.  10 or 11 wins looking good but that probably means another year of Lovie.

…pretty excited about the Bulls.  They didn’t look so hot in the 2nd half of that San Antonio game but they are 6-4 without the Booze.  If they can come home from the circus road trip at .500 I’ll be happy.

…pretty disappointed in the Hawks effort so far.  Granted they are banged up and have a bunch of new guys but they are going to have to do better than .500.  I guess I’ll be patient, for now.  After all they started slow last year and we know how they finished.

…pretty unimpressed by the Cubs efforts on and off of the field.  They aren’t going to spend any money this off-season which means no Adam Dunn or Cliff Lee.  We need to unload some dead weight and no go so far.  Then they can’t seem to get the momentum behind a Wrigley re-build.  Ugh!

…pretty pissed at Governor Quinn and the City of Chicago playing BS politics with the Cubs.  The Bears and White Sox got public money to help finance a new stadium.  The Cubs are told to take a hike despite the fact more people go to Cubs games than any other major sport in Chicago.  They are watched by the one of the largest nationwide audiences on the Superstation WGN.  They draw mega-millions in tourist and commercial dollars to the city, specifically the Wrigleyville neighborhood.  If they want to play politics and I were a Rickett, I’d pay a visit to Buffalo, N.Y. and visit their beautiful little Wrigley replica.  I hear the upper deck can be expanded at a reasonable price tag to accommodate 38,000.  The Sox threatened to move, I sure would.

…pretty tired.  Time to go home and watch the Bears v. Dolphins.
