Yeah these are pretty stupid, but the prospect of Cubs pitchers and catchers reporting in just 17 days has got me a little stupid with excitement.
You may recall last year I made up some Happy Pitchers and Catchers Day faux Valentine's Day cards, since that's when Cubs pitchers and catchers reported. And this year my feelings remain the same: that Happy Pitchers And Catchers Report Day is way more deserving of a card than Valentine's Day. So I made a couple more cards with the Spring Spirit for your Cub Buds, even if the Big Day isn't til February 17th.
They're here in the blog for you to print out, but my understanding last year was that they were A) late, B) a little untrustworthy with the print size and C) cumbersome with the cutting and folding and all that. So this year I also put them on Zazzle if you'd like to order them for real.
That's right, real cards on real card stock. So while the subject matter is more Cub-like, these cards are just like Hallmark cards - they even come with envelopes. So... should you feel the yearning to share your own enthusiasm for the upcoming PItchers And Catchers Report Holiday, it's early enough for you to actually sign them, put a stamp on them and mail them to your other favorite Cub Fans.
Plus, if I sell about 13 million of them, I can retire. So tell your friends.
Okay what else... Reed Johnson is now rumored to be maybe becoming a Dodger.
