Stephen King once said that telling an alcoholic to control his drinking was like telling someone with explosive diarrhea to control his shitting.
I imagine that this might be a good analogy for how some of you are feeling today (gravedigger. Yes, that's right. I still love you - - sinner...) To secdelahc's point, it IS the off season and the amount of Cubs-related news has slowed to a trickle. To make matters worse, there isn't an off-topic rambling diary today that we can use as our collective toilet!
So to maintain the smell in here, I'll start things off with a little baseball and non-baseball chatter.
It's pretty damn cold here in Cincinnati and it's been snowing ALL DAY. I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about, so here's a hot cup of Kool-Aid to give you that warm and fuzzy feeling about the Cubs. It has no real news and it has a pretty positive attitude about Lilly, but with an intro like this, how can you go wrong?
Awww. That's our #7 Cub of all time. I do love me some Santo.
In college basketball, Florida just got their butts handed to them by unranked Vanderbilt, ending the #1 team's 17 game winning streak. This finally gives Joakim Noah something to scream about, as he has remained so calm over his last two years as Florida's star player.
Furthermore, I will say that 1) Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts are my favorite flavor, 2) I don't watch The Fairly Oddparents but I can list off some subliminal messaging in various Disney movies, and 3) of course I most certainly fear North Korea. No one likes a dictator.
Don't be gun shy. Have at it.
