Rick Monday Saves the American Flag


-David S.-

On April 26, 1975, two protesters rushed onto the field with an American flag during a Dodgers – Cubs game.  The two protesters stopped in center field and tried to light the flag on fire, which was soaked in lighter fluid.  The right fielder for the Chicago Cubs, Rick Monday, saw this happening.  He made a heroic move to charge toward the men. Luckily, the first match was blown out by the wind.  This gave Rick time to courageously save the American flag from being burned as a second match was being lit.  Even though this didn’t happen on the Fourth of July, this goes down as one of, if not, the most patriotic acts in sports history.  Well done Rick, well done. . .  Way to make America proud!

Way to make America proud Rick!

One Thing Every Cubs, Brewers, and Pirates Fan Can Agree On.


-David S.-

THE HATRED OF THE CARDINALS!

Every Cubs, Brewers, and Pirates fan can agree with this.  I’ve verified this with my big Cubs fan who is my social studies teacher and my baseball coach, a Pirates fan.  THEY ALWAYS WIN!!!  They knocked out the Brew Crew in the NLCS a few years ago.  We were so close to going the World Series!!!!  I WAS SOOOOO ANGRY!!!  They also just knocked out the Pirates too.  Why are they so good!?!!?  Many didn’t like the La Russa days too.  It seems like every player can bat .300 and every  pitcher is always dominant!  How can David Freese be subpar and then KING of the postseason?  Why does Jon Jay always make spectacular catches against the Crew?

Someday, I just know, someday they have to stop being so good!
