UPDATE: CUBS WIN!!! NL CENTRAL DIVISION CHAMPS!!!



Back to the Windy City for the weekend. The Cubs will clinch — hopefully. And, I’ll be there. Unfortunately, they won’t. They are finishing the season on the road. Still, it should be fun to hang out and have a few dozen beers in Wrigleyville during the games. Clark & Addison will be crazy when they wrap it up. I was there in 2003, 1998 and 1989. It would be amazing if they could make a run at it this year and avoid the 100 year hype that we’re going to hear all next year.

Then I’m off to St. Louis for a few days of business type stuff and then, who knows — maybe back to Chicago for a playoff game or three.

Oh, and I gots to get me an Italian Beef sammich.

A film translated from English to French…then to German, then French again, and then back into English.

Why not?

POOCHIE!!!

UPDATE: Wow, they’re nearly there! $1800.00 so far. Please go help out Kramer if you can.

A friend of ours (sometimes the AOS commenters are like the mob I guess) has a sick dog, a BEAUTIFUL DOG.

About 3 years ago, Kramer, the dog, was sick, and his pack loved him enough to pay for chemo, because thats just what you do, you care for your pack.thedude.jpg

Kramer, that lovely and loving creature seen above, fell into a relapse of his previous condition, and his pack leaders can’t realisticly afford the treatments that are needed, because they are pressing.

If you frequent the net, if you love dogs, and you can make a donation, of any size (though If I find a common participant of this blog who only donates $.01 I will be more offended than if you don’t participate at all) I would like you to do so.

Thats a BEAUTIFUL dog, I’ve lost pets myself, I’ve seen pets pass suddenly, and slowly, and one family member, though my brothers dog was only a distant niece, her loss hurt me, they are a part of us. 

If you could, if you would, it would be nice if you did, it doesn’t take many tiny offerings to meet the goal.  It’s not like ITIT contributions. 

I’m not doing this out of ego, though I’m linking what is maybe, but not really, “my” place.

I just love dogs, and I’m sure that BMAC loves Kramer, and they deserve every instant together.

Sorry to BMAC, and thanks to ND for bringing this to my attention.

If I could have done anything to bring any of my childhood pets back?  I would do it, well, most anything.

Fake, but way too accurate

This is just wrong.

Jones Soda’s latest flavors: dirt, sweat

Ever wonder what the Seahawks’ locker room tastes like after a big game?


Apparently, Jones Soda Co. thinks Seattle NFL fans want to know. The company started taking online pre-orders Thursday for a five-pack of sodas with flavors it says reflect the hard work of professional football players.


Clare Bowles, a spokeswoman for the Seattle-based company, said the four literally named flavors — Dirt, Sports Cream, Perspiration and Natural Field Turf — are “pretty lifelike.”


“Perspiration Soda is kind of salty tasting,” she said, with a slightly higher sodium content than the average soda, with a smooth, “stinky football sock” finish.

What’s next? Dirty Sanchez?
