    Well so far for the first 10 days of August the Cubs have won 1 game and lost 8.

    In July they were 0-7 for the first week of the month.

    In June they were above .500 (woo hoo) with a record of 4-3 for that first week of the month.

    In May they were 0-6 in the first week.

    For April 1-7 the Cubs won 1 and lost two. Their record for the first seven games of the season was 3-4.

    So, if my math is correct - if you leave out the first week of each month for the Cubs this season, their record would be 48-36.

    What happens the first week of each calendar month that may be causing the Cubs to lose so effectively?

    Cubs W/L record each day this year:

    It's not over until the last Fan Appreciation Day prize is handed out.

    Do you have a digital camera? If you go to the game, please bring the camera and take pics.

    I look forward to seeing your pictures from the day at Wrigley.

    --------

    Today I went to a friend's funeral. He was only 36 years old. One of his relatives who lives a couple blocks from Wrigley was there. He said he could see the Wrigley lights from his apartment.

    At the cemetery some of us wandered around a bit and looked at some of the other tombstones and grave markers.

    I was reminded of a Cubs book (Cubs Nation?) that mentioned people requesting to use the Cubs logo for grave markers and such. See attachment to see the marker I saw there.

    One of the folks there told me of a baseball great (now deceased) who had quite an impressive baseball related tombstone. Do you think anyone has a website of photos of deceased baseball players tombstones?

    When driving from the cemetery to the church luncheon, I saw a license plate which said PROVB 35

    (see link below for photo of license plate)

    Did you know that Chuck Connors has a Cubs logo on his gravestone?

    Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing them. What kind of camera are you using?
    Where were your seats at Wrigley? Some of your pics look like they were taken from about the same place that my photos were taken.

    I've got a Canon Digital Rebel and a couple lenses... an 18-55mm widangle zoom, and a 70-300mm telephoto zoom.

    The seat was row 15 of section 118. Just behind and to the side of home plate.

    I headed to the right field corner in the top of the 9th so I could get quick access to the exit and the El station.

    Nope. They just have a table where they check large purses and bags on the way in. I had my camera bag, they looked in it and let me in...

    I tried a Tivo search for "Ryne" and "Sandberg" and came up with no tv listings. Then I tried a search on keyword "Cubs" and came up with this listing...

    Ryan Sandberg. Who knew?

    I thought there might be some ESPN or Comcast specials regarding Ryne this week but so far this appears to be it.

    The WGN Baseball blog states...

    A Change Of Seasons

    Sunday at noon, WGN-TV presents "A Change of Seasons", a look at the Cubs, what went wrong, and where the team goes from here. Dan Roan will host the show live from PNC Park in Pittsburgh and will be joined by Len Kasper and Bob Brenly. We hope to have Jim Hendry as a live guest that day to go along with a feature on Derrek Lee, the latest news on the Cubs roster, and a look at the wild card picture.

    Following the special, the Cubs take on the Pirates at 12:30p on WGN-TV. We hope you will be able to join us.

    I'd like to see WGN re-air Sunday's Ryne Sandberg jersey retirement ceremony and the 14-3 Cubs win (vs. the Marlins!) that followed. I think people would enjoy seeing this again.
