Hey Gentlemen! How is everyone this fine Sunday afternoon? Long time no see!

I was reading the Sports section of the Minneapolis Star Tribune this morning and came to page C13 where the weekly Major League Baseball Insider - A Sunday Notebook by La Velle E. Neal III is located. The second story in I saw this by the title of "Ivy envy"

A section of ivy that covers the 11-foot wall at Wrigley Field has mysteriously died. Cubs Vice President Mark McGuire suggested that it was the work of White Sox fans. And that has ignited fans of the South Siders, who responded with some questionable anti-Cubs postings on the no-holds -barred http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com. "I say it's pretty obvious who the primary suspect ought to be." one fan wrote while including a picture of fired manager Don Baylor. "Cubbies not having won a World Series in 94 years --- it's because of Sox fans," another wrote. Cubs officials are pretty upset, and want someone's head on a platter.

Way to go guys!!! Nice work!! If I remember correctly, I've heard this La Velle E. Neal on KFAN sports radio here in the Twin Cities and he is a former Chicago native and big White Sox fan. He must visit this site on occasion. I wonder who he is on here?

Anyway, good to be back here after a long hiatus.

mooch :gulp:

I can't see any reason why. I think George and West protected against this.

I always did like that La Velle E. Neal fellow. Hey PHG, your damn security guard keeps hassling me.

Don't you have a V.I.P. list?

Astros Daily is actually still up and running. The moderator of the
site struck a deal with the Astros to keep it going. From what he wrote, it was one specific team official that helped him out.
