View my Cubs photos from this season
Well it’s been a busy time since my last blog, D Lee’s injury, and then Barrett, Mad Dog keeps rollin, and a very nice outing by Sean Marshall. As I mentioned last year around this time, this blog will not be a day to day rundown of the Cubs progress through the season. There are many blogs being written chronicling the Cubs travails, including those from Bob Brenly and Len Kasper as well as from many fans and season ticket holders who attend the games at Wrigley. One of of my favorites is, Bleed Cubbie Blue a very well written and informative blog, maintained by Al Yellon a long time bleacher bum. I could use this blog to blabber on about what is right and wrong with the ballclub and give statistical analysis etc. but that takes a lot of time and currently I am spending all my time in production working on “The Boys of Spring” film as well as trying to earn a living. That being said I will try to keep updating this blog at least once a week, letting you know the progress of “The Boys” film and any other notes of interest, like when I go down to Fitch Park and check in on Wood, Prior, and Miller. Of course before and during spring training when I am close to the team, this is your place to go for Cubs info.
Check out the new movie trailer for Vince Lloyd “The Voice of Summer” on the CUBSDVD page. We have had wonderful feedback on the DVD, Vince was a natural storyteller and was at his best the day I interviewed him. If you haven’t ordered a copy yet, be sure to pick one up and email us your review of the interview, all reviews will be automatically entered into a drawing to win a Cubs memorabilia package which includes a Ron Santo autographed unused ticket from the final game at old Hohokam Park in 1996. The last spring training game in 1996 was an exciting Cubs win in the final at bat, we were filming for the “Boys of Spring” documentary and had a camera shooting Ron and Pat broadcasting the game on WGN radio, when Ozzie Timmons hit the game winning HR, Ron literally jumped out of his seat! We will be giving away the prize package during this season’s MLB all-star break so order your copy of Vince Lloyd “The Voice of Summer” and email us your review to win. You are also helping two great non-profit organizations when you purchase the DVD; find out more about them on our website.
This Santo autographed ticket will be part of the prize package
