Seems fair, right?
Thats why this thing about resolutions is coming after I just did a post about resolutions involving beer.
And yesterday I got an email from the guys at Vine Line, and they told me they're putting the illustrations in their blog too, which is awesome.
Follow them on Twitter or something.
Did you see that Newsweek quit making paper magazines?
(Check it out - there are super cool articles about NW's early days.)
They hooked up with The Daily Beast and are now only online.
I can't come to a happy conclusion about that decision, because I'm old school when it comes to those kinds of things.
Not a Nook guy.
Anyway, the Cubs.
Not for 2013 baseball glory or anything, but for the way Management is moving the team.
I watch what the Dodgers are doing and I think, would I be happy if the Cubs suddenly spent a gazillion dollars on a buncha superstars from other teams?
But we all remember when they signed Alfonso Soriano (not that that's really close to what the Dodgers are doing).
At the time I felt like... well this must be what it feels like to be a Yankee fan.
And I rolled around in it like it was a bed covered with money.
But glory didn't happen.
And in the meantime, I learned enough about that part of the game to see the folly in the way the Cubs had gone about their business.
Like what just happened in that last sentence - I've never written "see the folly in" before in my life.
But words are tools anyone can use just like computers, so... our baseball team might as well use them, too.
Won't it be cool one day when we hear smart baseball people say, "The depth of prospective talent in the Cubs organization is second to none".
Won't it be cool if the majority of players at Wrigley are guys we've been rooting for for years because they grew up in front of our eyes?
Rizzos and Castros and Almoras?
A happier way to be.
