Chicago Cubs pioneers in uniform design

Chicago Cubs pioneers in uniform design

Spudart’s post about the Chicago Cubs’ old jerseys made me curious about the history of their uniforms. I did a little google action on, “cubs uniforms throughout history” and came across this incredible ESPN article by Paul Lukas published just last week. If you’re fan of the Cubs, baseball, design or nostalgia, then you absolutely […]

1000th BLOG POST!

1000th BLOG POST!

If I was paid $1 for every blog post on this site, I could theoretically cash it all in and get a big ‘ol one thousand dollar bill. That’s right. The unlikely moose blog hit the big 1-o-o-o. (Yesterday’s post was #1000.) I’m rather disappointed by the back of the 1000 dollar bill. If you’re […]

i like frozen cake

I just discovered that I like frozen cake. I’m talking about regular ol’ cake, not ice cream cake. Though I do love ice cream cake. I really like the texture of the frosting when it gets frozen.

never buy autographs on ebay

never buy autographs on ebay

See how the number “3” is different in the photos? Someone is running a scam on ebay. As a general rule of thumb, never buy autographs on ebay. Sellers can be especially tricky. I caught a crooked seller on ebay. And ebay makes it quite difficult and practically impossible to properly report fake items. The […]
