I would prefer that whoever writes the program descriptions for Chicago Cubs related tv programs would include "Chicago Cubs" in the blurb.

Question

This program might be Chicago only.

Are any WGN America viewers able to Tivo this?

The Comcast SportsNet Plus listings don't show up on my Tivo, so I thought I'd post the tv listing here in case others have this same problem.

If you watch the video you'll see the Harry Caray statue in its former location.

Lightbulb Buckner to fill in for Brenly in booth vs. Red Sox

Buckner to fill in for Brenly in booth vs. Red Sox
By Dave van Dyck, Tribune reporter

"Former first baseman Bill Buckner will fill in for WGN's Cubs analyst Bob Brenly during the May 20, 2011 interleague game in Boston, where he is both loved and hated for letting a ground ball go through his legs during Game 6 of the 1986 World Series."

Lightbulb Some weird Chicago Cubs Tivo listings today.

Some weird Chicago Cubs Tivo listings today.

1. Ever since "Next Year is Here" aired on opening day on WGN at 12:30pm on a Thursday, I'm getting a "Cubs special" listing for that time slot on Thursdays.

2. Today's Cubs/Cardinals game didn't show up in the Tivo search I have set up. It did show up when I looked up 1pm on WGN. The search is set up for something like Sports / Baseball / Cubs.

3. WGN's Lead Off Man and 10th Inning show are now called something else. I'm concerned that the name (something like MLB Pre game / Post game show) will be less unique are more difficult to sort out just the Cubs related programs.

Its hard enough trying to track down where the next Chicago Cubs game will air, why are they trying to make it even more difficult?

Oh, on the Motorola cable DVR, the pre-game show is still called the Lead Off Man, however, they tend to be listed as re-runs.

The pre-game shows tend to be the only clue we're given as to whether we're watching a new game or a re-aired game.

I still haven't figured out the game plan on which to record when a game is listed on both WGN / Comcast and also ESPN / MLB Network.
My guess is to select the local option whenever it is available, but I would like to know what the actual rule of thumb is for that.

Still wishing I could just program the Tivo to record everything Cubs related and it would work and leave out the duplicates and the black-outs.

PS: The other day Comcast had 3 different Chicago Sporting events air at the same time. Wish they had bothered to tell my Tivo where to find the Cubs game. I had the Tivo set up to record the Cubs, but ended up with the Blackhawks game.

After Ron Santo's HOF event, the Chicago Cubs dress up as superheros for getaway day after the St. Louis series.

Can you tell who is which superhero in this video?

Lightbulb Tony Campana

Last year, Tony Campana was my reason for watching the 2012 Chicago Cubs.

Remember when everything would stop when Sosa went to bat.

For 2012, our fun player to watch was Tony Campana.

I'm bummed to see that he is very unlikely to be a 2013 Chicago Cubs.

If you're a Tony fan, watch this video. It's Grrreat !

Who can identify this Cubs pitcher. That's Bill Buckner at 1st so that gives you an idea of the era this photo is from.
