    What Now?

    What now? I think we'll all pretty much do what we've been doing these last several years...

    Ozuna climbs fence and holds on to try catch

    I've always heard that the rule is that as long as any part of the fielder's body is in the field of play when the catch is made, it counts. That's how we got this:

    Let's not adopt Cub rituals, Sox fans

    Here'a another cringe-worthy article from 2011.

    Let's not adopt Cub rituals, Sox fans

    This has been happening for years and not just in Chicago. Here's an example from 2013 in Pittsburgh. https://www.mlb.com/video/fan-throws-back-home-run-ball/c-27156081

    Why was Matt Davidson Dropped?

    This thread was created one day too early.
  6. Honestly, the amount of coverage any team gets by a newspaper is almost irrelevant as the newspaper industry is slowing dying off. If you want coverage on a specific team, you can find it online. I think the last time I actually looked at a physical copy of our local Rockford newspaper, it was maybe 4 or 6 pages total. Front page, local news, world news, weather, sports, comics. Maybe a page devoted to each. 20 years ago it was easily double that.
  7. Probably because the Sky are a (to use baseball terms) a major league team and all the others with the exception of the Fire are minor league teams. I don't know about the print version of the paper, but they have a bunch of stories on the Fire on their website. https://chicago.suntimes.com/section/fire-soccer/ But I don't know that there's a whole lot of interest in MLS in the city compared to the 4 major sports.

    College Cheating Scandal F.Huffman/L.Loughlin

    Maybe it's just me but paying people to take the kids ACT or SAT for them and bribing coaches to say the kids were athletes to get lower admission rates =/= donations.

    DNA Testing

    I read an article once that this is one of those unexpected consequences that comes up during these tests. Suddenly unknown pregnancies and/or infidelities come to light that were previous unknown or unspoken.

    Signing Luke Heimlich: Acceptable or Quit being a fan worthy?

    Sure, that's the common reaction. But imagine you are a 15 year old kid with hopes of going to college and becoming a major league player at some point. Then your parents and lawyers are telling you that if this goes to trial that the story will get out and there's a chance, however small, that you may still be found guilty. That even if you are found innocent, there were still be people that judge you for even being accused of the crime. BUT, if you just plead guilty since you are still a minor, this will all go away and eventually be erased from your record and nobody will ever know a thing about it. It's not an easy choice.

    Signing Luke Heimlich: Acceptable or Quit being a fan worthy?

    Honestly, I think innocent people pleading guilty to crimes they didn't commit happens way more often than we realize. Of course everyone always says they would never do it. But until you are put into that situation, you never really know. Especially if you are a young, scared kid getting either zero help from any adults or attorneys or getting advice that its the best thing to avoid a long, drawn out legal battle that will end up ruining your name and reputation even if you are eventually found to be innocent. This is slightly off-topic but I just recently listened to a podcast that had a story about a 19-year-old single mother who was also homeless that happened to be charged with murder. After spending 18 hours in an interrogation room with no lawyer and worrying what was going to happen to her 6 week old daughter, she eventually pled guilty to the crime. The cops believed her confession because she was able to give them details that only the killer would know. They later found proof that she couldn't have been the killer and the case went into the cold case files. 10 years later when they went back and looked at the taped confession they realized that they had unknowingly fed her the information that she knew about the case. The literally showed her receipts from when the killer took the victims credit card and used it at various stores and restaurants. Then later when she was able to tell them where his credit card was used, they thought that was the proof that she did it. Again, I'm not saying that's what happened in this case. Just that I think it happens way more often than people realize.
