Trying on my tin foil hat...I was watching Once and Future City on Discovery HD Theater, an interesting series that picks a great city of the world and does an hour fluff piece on it. This one featured the greatest city, of course, Chicago. I didn't really learn anything new, but there was some beautiful shots of the city in HD, so I stuck around. All of the expected stuff was there: the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the diverse architecture, the blues, a couple of sympathetic pieces on Capone and Dillinger, etc.

Then came sports, and how Chicagoans love their teams: The Bulls, the Bears, and most of all, the Cubs. What followed essentially amounted to a gag-inducing 5 minute commercial for all things cubbie and the place in which they play. The White Sox? Oh yeah, they got a mention, too. About 30 seconds covering the 1919 World Series.

I hope Hangar didnt see this, it is hard enough for him to fight the good fight against the local media, let alone the Discovery channel. :D:

Im glad I didnt see that ....... :angry: Why do people think it proper to stumble and fall over themselves to say the same things others have said before them?
This nonsense is bordering on the moronic. How many more CubFluff pieces
can we see?

Hangar, just calm yourself, take a deep breath (and some medication), and hang with us for the rest of the season. You can't spontaneously combust during a charmed season.

I agree, but you would never know it by watching this show!
