If you're a modern, savvy consumer, you gotta keep up with the times.
That means always getting the latest and newest stuff.
Like the iPhone 4 or the iPad 3 from Apple or...the latest version of the iCubs from Des Moines.
You say you can talk to "Siri" on your iPhone?
Big freakin' deal, bud.
Can Siri hit a 500 foot homer?
Can Siri play every position in the outfield?
Those only happen with the iCubs and their latest apps, Anthony Rizzo and Brett Jackson.
In fact, it's the beta version of these two, so you can see them in development.
Okay, straight talk.
I've been a Cub Fan for what can easily be termed a "Period" (like Jurassic or something).
Never been to Iowa, never seen the iCubs.
I have to think there are a bunch of Cub Fans like me who can't help but notice that some of the better Cub Talent might not be playing in Chicago, and decide to make a trip or two this summer.
They have beer there, right?
(btw, I did this post after trying to get an Iowa Cubs hat online, and finding they're sold out.)
Live an hour from Des Moines and get down to see the I-Cubs regularly. Sec Taylor (I know its now called Principle Park... I'm still calling it Sec Taylor) is a great place to watch a game. With all these guys playing in Des Moines this year (for now), it going to be great watching this season (maybe better than watching the actual Cubs).
Regarding the hat, this is the one I wear - http://iowacubs.milbstore.com/store_contents.cfm?store_id=144&dept_id=2195&product_id=24301

Welcome Baseball Backs!
That hat is SO much cooler than the one I drew.
Totally getting one.
So, what or who was Sec Taylor?
And now why Principle?

The stadium the I-Cubs play at is now called Principle Park. For years (1959-2004), it was called Sec Taylor Stadium in honor of long time Des Moines Register sports writer/editor Sec Taylor. Unfortunately, money speaks and Principal Insurance bought the naming rights and now its called Principle Park.; however, it's still called Sec Taylor Field at Principle Park.
Its a nice place to watch a game. I've actually played a couple games there during high school.

I googled Sec.
A bow-tied sports writer!
Way back when we all thought Wrigley was about to be re-named, I figured it would be Wrigley Field at (Name of Company that bought name) Park.
I still crack up when I walk past the State Street Macys and there are bronze Marshall Fields signs all around the building.
Anyway, I hope to make it to Sec Taylor some time this summer.
