It's been a while, not only for the Cubs but for me too!

Here's the deal, this blog is a good test of my paternal instincts at this point in my life. If I'm not even able to take care of this informational and educational link to the five people that read it, I'm in no place to bear children. With that being said, WE'RE PREGNANT!!!!

Just joking but it'd be funny if I did or do in the future post that announcement (5 years in the future). Anyways, lets get down to the brass tacks of what's really chappin my ass today.

As many of you know our team, America's Team in baseball, the Chicago Cubs has made it into the playoffs. What is really tickin me off is the fact that the people in management trying to make a buck, had to be a bunch of sell outs and sold the privelages to broadcast to TBS. TBS??? Uhhh have you ever heard of WGN?? Maybe the idiots who made this decision forgot about the hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of people throughout the U.S. and dare I say the world that are underprivileged and can't provide themselves with cable TV.

YEa, and I'm one of was a stretch for me to purchase HD bunny ears for our flat screen in our newly refurbished downstairs. Yea thats right. Look I've got responsibilities during the work week and I can't be hauling myself to a bar at 9:00 p.m. to drink Old Style til midnight and expect teach the future generation the next day. Furthermore, I can't turn on the radio to hear the game cause ROn Santo, God Bless him, can't verbally get what he sees with his eyes into a coherant statement for those LISTENING on the radio who can't SEE what he's looking at!

I guess i'm just going to have to suck it up and mooch off of one of my friends who is fortunate enough to have cable for the games that I could watch over the weekend. Which only leaves me one game cause they're going to sweep...right? OR I guess I could just wait til morning and get the play by play from some of my kids....who by the way could probably give more detail in announcing live games than Ronny Santo, God Bless him.

Well, I thank those dilligant five people who continue to check this blog for insight into our world and I promise to at least attempt to post more things that bother me on a daily basis or should I say weekly perhaps bi-weekly basis.

Great post, glad to have you back. Think you could make this at least a weekly occurrence and not bi-monthly?

With that being said, I see what you were trying to do with the pregnant joke, but might I suggest going with something even a tad bit on the realistic side? We all know you can't even find the hole and I'd say the cubs have a better shot at winning the world series!

Miranda here...

My darling husband did not allow for anonymous posts, therefore I have not been able to comment on his loco rants.

However, after his ridiculous "joke" about us being pregnant I find it necessary to be able to comment on his lunatic ways. No, we are not expecting and I sure hope that when we are we do not tell everyone over one of Josh's crazy blogs.
