    I have been looking up Cubs players who have birthdays in February and noticed these two birthday boys who share the same February 25 birthday.

    Bob Brenly
    Debut August 14, 1981
    Final Game October 1, 1989
    Born February 25, 1954 in Coshocton, OH
    http://www.baseball-reference.com/b/brenlbo01.shtml


    Ron Santo
    Debut June 26, 1960
    Final Game September 29, 1974
    Born February 25, 1940 in Seattle, WA
    http://www.baseball-reference.com/s/santoro01.shtml

    Another interesting birthday Cub...

    Bill Long
    Born February 29, 1960 in Cincinnati, OH
    http://www.baseball-reference.com/l/longbi01.shtml
    (So he's had what? 10 or 11 birthdays so far?)

    The article does mention the Cubs. One does wonder about the dangerous things the players do off the field. I've read some funny stories about former Cub Joe Wallis and the things he did way back when.

    Our local paper had the White Sox game listed for this evening on both WGN and Comcast Sports Chicago. These two never share a game telecast.
    Sometimes they'll share one with ESPN, but never do we see Comcast and WGN air the same game at the same time.
    (Okay, unless its a White Sox / Cubs game, but then we have different announcers.)

    I just checked the cable PVR tv listings...they have the Cubs game listed as airing on Comcast Sports Chicago.

    FWIW, the Tribune lists the game on WGN tonight starting at 6:05pm
    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/cs-060907cubsbits,1,4999394.story
    and the folks at www.cubs.com are agreeing with that tv listing.

    But WGN's webpage isn't claiming it.
    http://wgnsuperstation.trb.com/ and
    http://wgnsuperstation.trb.com/sports/wgncable-sports-cubs2006,0,6446801.htmlstory

    The Comcast page is claiming the Cubs game today.
    http://chicago.comcastsportsnet.com/team-cubs.asp

    The Tivo listings say tonight's game (Cubs vs. Braves 9/8/06) is on Comcast.
    https://www3.tivo.com/tivo-tco/index.do

    So that's 4 sources listing Comcast and two for WGN.

    Hmmm. If I record both the I won't have room for the Pastor Greg show and Bananas Comedy that air later tonight.

    The topic is... I can't believe my partner said .....

    LEN: That ugly game in Minnesota during which the Cubs kept making defensive mistakes, he blurts out, "Uncle!" I can't say I was thinking "I can't believe my partner said it," but it was just a moment of complete frustration and really summed up how every Cub fan was feeling at that moment. It was the perfect word to use.

    BOB: Nothing. I made a crack about "Boog Alou" and he was silent. We were talking about the three Alou brothers all playing in the same outfield for the Giants and I mentioned that their 4th brother "Boog" was on the bench that day and it went right over Len's head.

    One way to choose which team to follow in the playoffs in a non-Cub year is to pick one with the best selection of former Cubs players.

    According to: http://www.all-baseball.com/ref/excub.html

    Did they miss anyone? Did this list change at all?
