Open Thread: Cubs vs. White Sox, Saturday 6/25

SportsBLOGS Nation, the site representing all of us SportsBLOGGERs, just got named one of Time Magazine's 50 coolest websites!

Here's the direct link to their review. Yes, BCB is included here, although we're not specifically mentioned. You guys already know about many of these sites; I encourage you to check out the others.

I have been asked not to designate games as must-win or imperative. Too bad, I'm doing it anyway -- today definitely qualifies in both categories. There are still several teams bunched up in the wild-card race, and the Cubs are only 2.5 games behind the current leader, the Braves. They need to keep close until Kerry Wood (who threw a very nice rehab start last night for Iowa in front of the largest crowd they've ever had, 13,669, set to return next week), and Mark Prior (tomorrow) return.
