Why the Cubs MUST win today!

…The Cubs are gonna win today! 


Why the Cubs must win today, you ask? Because they are way better than the Brewers or the Cardinals.  The Cubs are the best team of our less than stellar NL CENTRAL.  If they lose tonight, Milwaukee moves within 1/2 game, and the Cardinals will be 1 game out if they win and the Cubs lose.  This game is HUGE  and I hope the Cubs take it seriously and WIN!

Rough Night for “Z”  Z was hit hard last night, and the Cub’s collapsed offensively.  They threatened in many innings, but, never made anything happen!  Lilly will go for win 14 tonight against Manny Parra, who’s 0-1 this year. 

 THANKS HOUSTON!  For taking care of business last night against the Cardinals, and beating them.  The Cubs couldn’t come close last night, so we needed (and got) some help from the Astro’s.  The Cardinals didn’t pick up any ground on the Cubbies!

Irish Home Opener Gathering!


Greetings Bearded Brothers – This weekend, you’re invited to watch the Irish take on Georgia a-helmets-350w.jpgTech at 2PM, in the ‘Bears Den’.  Since it will be about 77 and sunny at game time, the TV will be on the deck for a great afternoon of IRISH football!

The grill will be ready, so bring over a few brews to enjoy the action! 

Regardless of what happens this weekend, let’s look onto a few happy memories from last year!

Steamboat Update 5/23

Well, about 3 1/2 weeks left before Steamoat!  I hope you guys have been training.  TO be honest, this Bearded Bear has been slacking off on his training.  I need to pick up the pace again.

 I did discover the paved trail out by Pioneer Parkway.  Its a paved trail that winds behind Mt. Hawley airport, past Pioneer Parkway, and out to the Rock Island trail by Dunlap.  From there, it goes forever.  I’ll be honest, I strugled badly this weekend when I ran the trail hard.  One other wierd thing, there is a 6 foot high metal tube that runs under Rt 6 / I-474.  This tube is a little weird to run through, but, kind of cool.  If we were still in High School, no doubt, we’d love that area – haha.  No one is going to go down there.

 There is a creek going through the other metal tube.

Anyway, hope everyone is training!
