Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family too Lonny!
408 MA members a rockin' & a rollin' this holiday season, with more to come!
With a 5-8 record and three games left in this NFL season, the wheels have come off the wagon for my beloved Bears. The Bears just can't seem to win at home this year, no matter the "quality" of the opponent. Changes in the player roster are indeed in store for next year, or we are doomed to repeat history once again. Speaking of changes, the Cubbies have spent their off season acquiring some talent (Lackey, Zobrist, and Heyward) for next year's run for the Series!
The pics from last Saturday night's jam look like you all were having fun! Having fun and playing sweet music should be what it's all about!
405 MA members is truly a sight (and sound) to behold!
The Cubs need to bolster their pitching as well this off season. Hopefully this young roster will be able to regularly contend for the playoffs for years to come. Your Raiders are doing much better this season, which is a good thing. The Bears are in the very beginning stages of a "rebuilding mode" at 3-5 and really should be 5-3. They gave away a couple of division games that were just sitting there for the taking. Last night's win was good for the team's moral, but they really can't beat most of the average and above teams in the NFL. I doing well, and I hope that you and yours are too! Always good to hear form you Lonny!
402 MA members is just downright amazing!
What a milestone to reach! No other group on the PDF even comes close to reaching that kind of a number.
389 MA members a rockin' and a rollin' on their sweet Masters kits!
Thanks as always for the kind and generous Rep Lonny! The Cubs had a big 12-3 win over Jeff's (Phips) Tigers yesterday, that's for sure. However, all of the talk of the town is for the Blackhawks home-win last night to tie up the Stanley Cup Finals 2 games to 2! I wonder if Marv is rooting for the Tampa Bay Lighting? I admit that I'm not a huge hockey fan, but whenever the Blackhawks are in the finals it's hard not to root for your city's team. To me, it's almost like getting excited and rooting for USA's beach volleyball or bobsled teams while watching the Olympics. LOL! I see that your Dodgers are a game up on the Giants for 1st place. Meanwhile, the Cubs are 6.5 games behind those nasty MLB-leading Cardinals. Man, can't they ever just have an off season every once in a while? LOL!
387 MA members is downright outstanding!
I'm doing well, and I hope that you and Frieda are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
Although the Cubs lost to the Nationals today they are doing much better so far this season. I see that your Dodgers are sitting nicely in first place. I haven't been on the PDF much either. This past week we had our whole roof redone, including all new plywood sheathing. We had three layers of shingles removed all the way down to the lathe boards. There were two layers of asphalt shingles, and the bottom layer was the original wood shake shingles that were from the mid 1920's!
386 MA members is phenomenal! Getting closer and closer to 400!
The Cubbies are currently on a 4 game win streak. We play Pittsburgh again tonight. Come on win number 5!
Did you get to see any of the White Sox/Orioles game in Baltimore today with no fans allowed in the stadium? It was weird.
NFL 2015 Draft starts tomorrow right here in Chicago!
Go Dodgers! Beat those darn Giants!
385 MA members are both a sight and sound to behold! Unfortunately the Cubs lost today which bumped us down to second place, and our new phenom Kris Bryant went 0 for 4. But hey, your Dodgers are on a 4 game winning streak! Beat up those Rockies later tonight!
385 MA members is truly magnificent! Time to bring on spring indeed! A week ago today we got socked with 20" of snow mixed with 40-50 mph winds in a 24 hour period. It was the 5th harshest blizzard in Chicago records. We spent the next few days digging ourselves out! If we have to have snow, couldn't Mother Nature at least spread it out over the course of a month, instead of dumping it on us all at once! LOL! The new/used snow blower helped a lot, but with the way the winds were blowing, it was like fighting a loosing battle. No snow yet, so I'm much better this Sunday night!
384 MA members is incredible! I believe that the City and the Cubs are having (or had) a memorial for Ernie Banks today downtown at Daley Plaza. Since the Cubs are renovating Wrigley Field, they had to move Ernie's statue during the reconstruction. The Cubs decided to bring it out of storage, and the City allowed them to place it in Daley Plaza so that the fans could pay their respects. The Cubs should be much improved this season, with the possibility of really contending in 2016. As long as we are both agreed that the Cardinals must loose! LOL! We're getting ready for a big winter storm that is going to start this evening and last throughout the day tomorrow. They say we could get anywhere from 6"-12" of snow from this storm. We have a new used snowblower this year (thus saving my back), so I say bring it on! Glad to hear that your old bass player is joining the band! Enjoy the Super Bowl too!
381 MA members is downright out o' sight!
I just got around to congratulating James on his thread for his beautiful new Birdseye Maple MCX kit. We've known that our Masters kits are definitely keepers, and I'm glad the he has the chance to own some of that sweet 6 ply goodness! I heard that the Raiders hired Jack Del Rio as their new head coach, which sounds like a good match for them. We're waiting here in Bears country to see if they are going to hire ex-Broncos coach John Fox for the head coach vacancy. Saturday is supposed to come close to 40°, which will be like a heat wave around here! LOL!
