links-of-the-week-cubs

At the time of this writing - July 22, 2016 - the Cubs are good at baseball. Let’s keep it that way.

To be exact, they’re 20-games over .500 at 57-37 with a half-game lead over the San Francisco Giants for the best record in baseball. And if anything, they’re under-performing as they have nearly 100 more runs in the positive on their differential -- they’ve scored 151 more runs than they’ve given up this year. The Giants have scored 59 more than they’ve given up. Again, they’re good.

Deep Cuts: Four Ideas for the Fourth

Deepcuts12

The Fourth of July weekend party in The Region officially kicked off yesterday with the Duneland Chamber of Commerce Fireworks, and if you’re not planning on becoming the next BBQ king or queen this weekend...shame on you, because I set you up for success last week and solid gold advice doesn’t come along every week. In fact, most weeks I am talking about Prairie Home Companion or Bob Ross. Heck, I am not even sure if I will ever have any more good advice for you.

I give up on trying to live in a spoiler-free world.

About six weeks ago, my wife and I began watching Game of Thrones to catch up with the insanely popular show before it finished its sixth season. Going into it, the only thing I knew was that just about every character on the show dies. Love ‘em? They’re dead. Hate ‘em? They’re dead. I knew that going in, and it got me thinking about spoilers.

Steve's Deep Cuts: When the House Falls, Pick Up a Brick

Deepcuts12

The funny part about life are those little moments, I call them “awakenings,” when things become clearer. They usually become clearer after “sleepenings,” as I call them. Sleepenings are those moments in life when you are running in high gear for so much time and then realize your parking brake is still up.
