Thumbs up TV listings for Chicago Cubs fans

Feel free to add Chicago Cubs related programs that I may have missed.

I've found that it takes dozens of search words to come up with all available programs that have something to do with the Chicago Cubs. Even then, I manage to miss a few that fail to use program descriptions.

MLB Baseball "Atlanta Braves at Chicago Cubs" Fri 10/1 2:10 PM 9 WGN

MLB Baseball "Atlanta Braves at Chicago Cubs" Fri 10/1 2:15 PM TBS

MLB Baseball "Atlanta Braves at Chicago Cubs" Sat 10/2 3:00 PM FSCH

It is now the Fox game of the week and gametime has been moved to 12:25 pm. Hope all the ticket holders find out about this.

Source: cubs.com schedule page at:
http://chicago.cubs.mlb.com/NASApp/m...hc&m=10&y=2004

Tivo still hasn't made the adjustment for this programming change.




MLB Baseball "Atlanta Braves at Chicago Cubs" Sun 10/3 1:10 PM 9 WGN

Push for the Playoffs The Chicago Cubs try for the postseason for the second year in a row. Sun 10/3 12:00 PM 9 WGN

The "Race for the Pennant" show on WGN has been renamed "Wild Ride". They must've seen the Cubs/Reds series.

Wild Ride: The 2004 Cubs The Chicago Cubs try for the postseason for the second year in a row. Sun 10/3 12:00 PM 9 WGN

Oddly enough, the previous episode of "Race for the Pennant" on my Tivo has been renamed Wild Ride: The 2004 Cubs.




Pat Sajak's National League Ballpark Tour Dodger Stadium; Coors Field; PNC Park; SBC Park; Wrigley Field. Mon 10/4 3:00 PM TRAV

Full Access
Fri 10/1 6:00 PM FSCH

Arrow Chicago Baseball Xtra

Chicago Baseball Xtra is not showing up in this week's Tivo listings. I'm guessing that the Comcast thing kicked in and that this show is history. I would've preferred that they had been able to produce shows at least thru the end of the regular baseball season.

Listed in that timeslot now is:

The Sports List "Celebrity Fans" Sun 10/3 10:00 PM FSCH

Jim Belushi made the list but Bill Murray did not. Imagine that. John Cusack was also not listed.

Love watching the Cubs....

.... implode. Thanks for posting information on watching the last 3 games of the year for the Cubs. Is there any show better on TV than watching the Cubs and their fans go through agonizing defeat, year after year, day after day. It's great how close they come to success (like last year's infamous, "Five outs to go.") and then fail miserably. This is truly must see TV.

Was this thread created just as another big joke on us long-suffering Cubs fans? As we go through our yearly mourning process, we just want to be left alone!

(Granted, this is an interesting, new time of year to be mourning - usually it's either mid-October if we're lucky, or early June if we're not)

Almost like watching the Potomac . . .

Usually I can find more Cubs related programs than what I have listed here.

I am a longtime Cubs fan who for some reason has most Cardinal fans for friends. I don't understand why anyone would be interested in the Cards. They're boring.

The downside with being a Cubs fan is that a victory brings 2 minutes of happiness and a loss brings 4 hours of ....well, you know.

Looks like the Cubs lost today. I think they need to avoid starting Kerry Wood on Fridays - that just doesn't seem to work for him.

Did you check out my photos from Wrigley Field yet?

On a side note, i heard that next year fox sports net will not be broadcasting cubs games and that comcast will take over. How will that effect the MLB Extra Innings package for Directv? Will the cubs games still be shown with the package? I sure hope so...

I'm not aware of any conflicts with the Comcast Chicago sports network and MLB extra innings. But I don't have any direct info either.

I do watch for news stories regarding the new network.

My concern is that the Comcast Chicago sports network becomes available to 4dtv satellite viewers so we can watch as many Cubs games as possible.

Boring? True, we don't fight with our broadcasters, or blame everybody but ourselves for losing, but then again we don't lose. But I guess I'll take a boring old team that actually wins a World Series every now and again over a bunch of whiney-ass losers who blame a stupid farm animal for their failure

So in a week when I'm watching my team in the playoffs, and you're sitting at home mourning yet another colapse of your beloved Small Bears, I'll be perfectly content rooting for the best young player in the league (Pujols), and the best offensive AND defensive lineup in the game. Boring and all

Oh yeah, and you actually thought Garciaparra was going to bring you a World Series? I'm sure you could have signed Bill Buckner much cheaper, with the same results!

Maybe because the Cardinals have won, are winning, and will win more than the Cubs have? You're right though...the Cardinals are boring. Instead of trying to be the bad boys of baseball, instead of arguing with the television broadcasters (Caray and Stone), instead of trying to intimidate the other teams by throwing beanballs, instead of scoring a run or two a game, the Cardinals just play baseball (terrific defense, pretty good pitching, and scoring several runs a game). I can see what you mean...who could be a fan of such boredom????

If you're a Cubs fan, you know exactly what this article was really saying...

Unchanged Stone will be back in '05
October 20, 2004

Color analyst Steve Stone, who has been told the Cubs will pick up his option for 2005, promises to be exactly the same broadcaster he was during a controversial 2004.

http://www.suntimes.com/output/cubs/...t-stone20.html

Yep...

Longtime broadcaster Steve Stone steps down
October 28, 2004

Longtime Chicago Cubs analyst Steve Stone announced Thursday he was leaving WGN-TV, less than one month after coming under fire for on-air comments he made criticizing the team.

http://www.suntimes.com/output/sports/28stone.html

Hopefully he will still work for Comcast Sports Chicago. We'll see. (I doubt it though.)



I wonder if he was concerned that with Chip Caray gone, WGN might pair him up with some Mickey Mouse broadcaster...

Hmmmmm...while I don't agree at all with D-Mo's comment that the Cardinals are BORING...

It is because of fans like you...your snide comments about ANY other team, not just the Cubs, that I gladly rooted for the BoSox in the WS and was thrilled when they SWEPT your invincible Cardinals in 4 games while committing 8 errors in the first 2 games.

I was thrilled to see your beloved, strongest lineup in my lifetime crumble at the pressure of being only the 4th team in history to get swept in the WS.

"TWIB" airs M-F from 7 - 8am Central time on the ESPN Classic channel. I recommend recording this show daily and look for glimpses of your favorite Cub players. They had a mostly Cubs episode last week regarding a Cubs/Dodgers game from the Buckner era. Oddly enough, later that week I found some pictures of Buckner at first base tagging a Dodger baserunning. I wonder if those were from that game?

Does anyone know if "TWIB" is still in production?

And the latest trade rumor...
Sosa to the Dodgers? Oh please yes, please... You can even give us Todd Hundley back! (OK, not really.)

I've heard that rumor too. Personally, I want the Cubs to work out their differences NOW in the offseason and be ready to play in the Spring.

And yes, I want a healthy Sosa to remain a Cub. I think he has an incredible year ahead of him and I don't want him wasting that on a non-Cub team.

I can respect your optimism, but I am done with Sammy. If there is any way at all to get him out of the clubhouse and find some real leaders to replace him...I say do it, and do it now. I want this team to win while they still have the pitching.

I'm thinking that we don't know the REAL reason that Sammy didn't suit up that last day of the season. We do know that he was questioned by the FBI or someone like that regarding the attempted murder of his cousin on the previous day. I think something made him leave early that he's not ready to talk about. For all that he's done for the Cubs, I feel that I can give him the benefit of the doubt.

Plus if you think about it, it's rather ironic that some Cub fans get so upset about him taking that day off when their favorite team plays most of their games in daytime, where many fans must play hookey from work to attend.

Well, I can only speak for myself, not all fans, but that final day was just the final straw. Actually for me, it was even later than the final straw. He'll hit some homers, but I got too tired of seeing him fail to drive in runs with a man on 3rd and less than 2 out, striking out to kill rallies. Two years in a row hitting in the low .200s in the second half. I just think that to overcome the negative effect he has on the team (on the field and off), he needs to hit 60+ and drive in 130, and that is in the past. For all that he's done for the Cubs, he has been handsomely paid, and I say thank you, it was great. But I want the Cubs to win, not just see Sammy get some records.

When you work, travel and practically live with a group of people for 7 months of the year, and are striving toward a common goal, going through the ups and downs, you develop a team camaraderie. You are there for your teammates. You don't fight with them. You don't refuse to make changes that will help the team. You do what you can to make it better for everyone, not just yourself.

Playing hookey from work? Not sure I can get with you on that one.
a) I have a certain number of paid days off that I use for vacation or sickness. It's part of my employment agreement. It's not hookey to use them.
b) If I am supposed to be there, I am there. If not, I get permission, let people know and rearrange what I can to accommodate my absence.
c) I didn't get paid $17,000,000 last year.

Sosa's replacement for that day hit a triple and a home run. I'm sure he regrets taking the day off.

Keep in mind that EVERYONE pretty much expected the Cubs to be the wildcard team. Even Steve Stone told us a week previous that we shouldn't worry, the Cubs would be the wildcard team. I imagine that many Cub fans needed a "mental health day" after that dreadful Friday. Perhaps some of the players needed one too?

I was wondering of Garciaparra would receive any World Series $$$,$$$ from the Red Sox. It turns out, he'll not only receive some cash, but also a World Series ring! Imagine, a Cub player with one of those.

Just as weird to see Mueller and Bellhorn get one!

After yesterday's Sosa discussion, I put up a poll in a new Sosa thread...I thought you would have found it by now...

It is because of fans like you...your snide comments about ANY other team, not just the Cubs, that I gladly rooted for the BoSox in the WS and was thrilled when they SWEPT your invincible Cardinals in 4 games while committing 8 errors in the first 2 games.

I was thrilled to see your beloved, strongest lineup in my lifetime crumble at the pressure of being only the 4th team in history to get swept in the WS.
Where did I say anything bad about any other team? There are lots of teams I respect. I was rooting for Milwaukee during the season (except of course when they played the Cards) simply because everybody picked them to be dead last, and in spite of that, they were playing well, and contending, at least early on in the season.

Much like Boston and New York, and San Francisco/Oakland, the Cardinals and Cubs are rivals. Cubs fans talk smack about the Cards, and vice versa. DianaMo said she didn't know why anyone would root for the Cards, since they are boring. Just because the Cards lacked the sideshow antics that seemed to follow the Cubs around this year does not mean they are boring in my opinion. And what I said was mostly a retaliation for having to spend the entire off season last year hearing about how the Cubs were easily going to take the Central division, and then win the WS. For a team with that much talent, their overall record was an embarrassment to them.

While I certainly wasn't thrilled that the Cards got swept in the Series, most Boston fans that I dealt with were very kind, knowledgeable, and passionate about their team, and I respect them for that. While Cubs fans may be passionate and knowledgeable, my general interactions with them have shown the majority to be less than kind.

A lot of my friends these days are Cardinals fans. They can get pretty smug about their team.

I just don't find the Cardinals interesting at all.

I'm sorry if you took offense regarding my earlier comment.

Have you noticed that there is Cubs related news almost every day lately?

I'd like to encourage everyone to not fully believe every story you hear about what goes on behind the scenes at Wrigley Field.

It is very easy for a reporter to misquote a player regarding an issue, or to quote him exactly, but apply it to a different issue that changes what the player meant to say.

Plus, some things that get reported on can get blown way out of proportion to the importance of that story to the team. Often times is it a story that is easy for the reporter to write and for the audience to grasp.

--------

Years ago I was quoted in a news article regarding a soon to be former employer. The answers I gave were 90% upbeat. When asked about some of the service issues, I was also honest there and gave a fair review. In the article the positive things I said were left out and just the negative things were posted. It sounded like I was gripeing when really most of my quotes were quite positive. So I try to keep this experience in mind when reading the news.

I didn't take offense to it, I just disagreed with it You're entitled to you opinion of course.

Did WGN ever announce who will be doing the Cubs broadcasts next year since Stone and Carey are now gone?
