    LOL, Tony LaRussa is a really good guy.

    He's was the manager for the Oakland team and during a baseball game a black cat ran onto the field.

    I cannot remember the exact way the story happened, either he took the cat home or his wife called after the game asking about the cat.

    He took it home and it inspired him to start ARF...

    Bumping up this old thread ...

    The Chicago Cubs introduced their mascot Clark this week. We don't need a mascot; we need a team that can win!


    The Ricketts family, owners of the team, wants the city of Chicago to allow them to make huge renovations to Wrigley Field. Ricketts family, I don't think that will help the team win either.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    It isn't like the fans will be any more loyal now that you have a mascot ....

    Merchandise sales=more revenue.

    Renovated stadium on the lines of Fenway? More revenue.

    Why did the Red Sox create Wally? More revenue.

    NFL- four teams left. My cousin lives in Colorado. I have PT friends in New England and northern California. I don't know anyone who lives in Seattle, but I have a dear friend from college who now lives in Los Angeles and is a huge Seahawks fan. This is so not fair. I'd be okay with any of them winning. Go, football! I'm just rooting for safe weather for the Super Bowl in New Jersey, a fun game, and commercials that will be good conversation starters at work the next day. And yummy football snacks would be good, too.

    Okay, a random thought: for quite a long time, I have been getting spam with the subject line "Patriot Survival Plan" which is I suspect may be some apocalyptic doodad or whatever, I dunno, I never open them, but in the aftermath of this weekend's dismal NE Patriots NFL performance - and subsequent elimination from contention for this year's Super Bowl, as I delete it I think ....

    The Bears got walloped on Sunday Night Football. Green Bay Packers 55, Bears 14. (Bears, did you even make the trip up to Green Bay? What an embarrassment! ) Next Sunday the Minnesota Vikings come to Chicago. They'll probably win too.

    Tickets are going for as little as $40 for Monday's Bears game. They're playing New Orleans. The way this season has gone even that seems too high a price.

    CHICAGO (CBS) ó For fans who havenít given up on the Bears just yet and have some time to spare on Monday evening, tickets are available for a relatively good price.

    About $40 would score a seat in the upper reaches of Solider Field for Monday nightís game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Some end zone seats are selling for around $80.

    Seats on the lower level, in the corners are available for a low as $120.

    With about 3,300 tickets available, fans could probably bide their time and wait to see if prices drop even further over the weekend.

    If risk isnít your thing, making the move on a $40 ticket is a pretty good deal.

    The quality of the football cannot be guaranteed.

    Incidentally, face value for regular season seats range from $104 to $420.

    The most expensive ticket? $9,500 on Stub Hub.

    $9,500! Really?
