Goat Riders of the Apocalypse
A Hundred Next Years
Just Read 'em!
It's been a long road in Cubdom. The club has struggled for the past few years as ownership and the front office have transitioned. I'm genuinely optimistic about the direction of the on-field team... while genuinely disappointed with the constant drive to squeeze every bit of revenue from the fans. For instance, the Ricketts have chosen to ban the Big-Gulp in an effort to boost in-park revenue concessions. I know it's standard practice at other parks, but as I told the ticket attendant while pouring out my soda: "These confines have become decidedly less friendly."
Anyhow, I'm breaking my silence because my childhood hero, Ryne Sandberg has been named the Phillies manager. Congratulations to Ryno. I was saddened that you didn't get the Cubs' gig, which isn't to say it was a poor decision, I don't think Ryno fit with Theo's plan for the club, but both reactions are valid.
Nonetheless, Ryno wanted to be a Big League manager and now he's accomplished the goal. Huzzah, and best of luck to you #23!
