Kickin' Off the Cable Show With the Cubs

CHICAGO -- The Cable Show -- The Cable Show gets officially underway in the Windy City on Tuesday, but before taking on digital devices, CMAP and video, the Light Reading Cable crew took in a ballgame.

Click on the picture below to launch a slide show that's a lot prettier than the Chicago Cubs' win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

I love the picture of the "W" flag.  I haven't seen it from quite that angle in all my years of going to Cubs games. And given how the Cubs have been going, any "W" is a beautiful "W."

Funny caption: "LR's Todd Marquez and Heather Stanic talk to Tellab's Ariana Nikitas during a lull in the game."


Aren't most baseball games one big lull?

How come you guys went to a Minor League game when there is a Major League (read American) team in town?

PS - Carol - just think your team is doing badly in AAA ball!  Imagine if it was say in the AL East.

Thanks. We'll fix the misspelling.


But to your point, that old drunk announcer could barely pronounce his own name so maybe misspelling it in an alcoholic haze is a proper enough tribute.

The world is a poorer place because Harry didn't live long enough to have to announce Jeff Samardzija. 



And... they're here from Sheboygan today! Mrs. O'Leary and her fourth-grade class. Oh boy!

If only he'd lived long enough to get fired because of a Twitter post.

In the No Hitter photo, the grumpy guy who appears to be watching his team lose is Brent Patterson of Motorola Mobility not Dave Park of BelAir Networks.  We understand Dave's more of a hockey -- that's FIELD hockey -- guy.
