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/mlb/schedule/index.jsp?c_id=chc&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.

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. :(

.... 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)

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 :p

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/cst-spt-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?

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.
