Here’s a Few Words on Last Night’s UFC 229

Holy shit kids. If you are reading this blow and you missed last night’s UFC 299, then I genuinely hope you were doing something very important because you missed the greatest television in the history of the world. It had everything. The buildup. The return of Conor. The reigning champ hating Conor to his core. And the actual fight was awesome. Lets start with the introductions.

That is showmanship folks. Whether you hate him or you love him, Conor McGregor knows how to entertain.

But lets get down to why I’m writing here. Khabib won the fight and was dominating basically the entire time. It seemed like he was in absolute control 85% of the time.

But then all hell broke loose.

Holy shit, AMIRITE?

Now, this is the time that the takes are going to be coming like hot cakes. “Khabib has no sportsmanship”, “He should go to jail for what he did”, “Where is the class? Conor wasn’t doing anything!”. Well folks, this is the reality of the situation. This is Ultimate Fighting. These guys beat the absolute shit out of each other for a professional living. They are two of the best in the world and may be two of the best of all time. Conor is a showman and will be the best person to choose if you want to entertain hundreds of thousands of people. And then, if you add his actual world-class fighting ability, then he is PERFECT for the UFC. Khabib on the other hand is a Russian maniac. He is a monster and at times during that fight, he was beating McGregor so bad that I was actually beginning to feel fear creep into my body, and I was just sitting on the couch in my apartment. Khabib had genuine hate for Conor and I think he wanted to kill him.

People may think that this has “no place in the sport” but those people can kick rocks. In my eyes, the UFC is just as much entertainment as it is an athletic specticle. That is why they do the weigh-ins and the press conferences and the media tours. This fight had a back story and context that no other fight in the history of the UFC and it led to the greatest television moment in the history of broadcasted fighting. That was crazy. I had zero breath in my body. I was on the edge of my seat AFTER I just watched grown men get their asses kicked. That is what the UFC is all about. Great fighting for entertainment.

I feel bad for any of you that missed that live, but holy shit was it cool.

Live From the 815 Episode 60 – Colton and the Cubs Are Dead

If you like high-energy, positive podcasts, this is not the episode for you. If you enjoy the sadness in other people’s lives and the depression that follows a blown season, THEN YOU CAME TO THE RIGHT PLACE. We record literally minutes after the final out of the Cubs’ Wild Card loss to the Rockies and Colton couldn’t be more down in the dumps. We try and talk other things too but Colton is depressed the whole episode because the Cubs blew a great season and didn’t give a glimmer of hope for fans after the 162nd game. We then bring up the Ryder Cup to make Colton even more sad. Seriously. So, so sad.




Quick Spin Zone For All Cubs Fans Going Into This Offseason

Welp… That was a real kick in the nuts. Just a week ago we were looking golden. On September 25th, the Cubs were 3 games up with 6 game left and I honestly thought we were Gucci. We had two tough divisional opponents coming up, I thought we were playing good enough baseball to ride this out and take the divisional crown. We don’t, we play Milwaukee in game 163 and we watch the Brewers celebrate at Wrigley. That sucked. We then move onto the Wild Card game, again, at Wrigley. And again, we can’t hit and watch the Rockies celebrate at Wrigley and just like that, the Cubs season is over. Fuck me.

So folks, what do we do next? Is this a disappointment of a season? Of course. But was this team going to win the World Series? No way, Jose. This may have been the worst 95-win team in MLB history. We had nobody consistently hitting all season and other than Javy Baez and Rizzo’s 2nd half surge, Jason Fucking Heyward was our best bat. That’s gross. Other than the inconsistent offense, this team’s bullpen was depleted. Jorge De La Rosa and Jamie Garcia were pitching big time innings down the stretch. Those are not Postseason names you want to hear in the year 2018. Pedro Strop was banged up and Brandon Morrow ceased to exist after a season full of injuries. Even if we move on in the playoffs, this bullpen would’ve made sure we didn’t make it too far.

So without talking about the terrible signings of Darvish and Chatwood (puke), let’s move on to what Theo and Jed can do this offseason. Let’s start with who is on the North Side already:

Cole Hamels

The Cubs could pick up a $20,000,000 option to keep Hamels for the 2019 season. He was a rock for the Cubs rotation this season after being acquired from the Rangers. Personally I would love to see Hamels come back and give us one more year of consistent Starting Pitching.

Daniel Murphy

Murphy is going into Free Agency this offseason. According to, the 33 year old Murphy is valued to receive a two-year, $30,000,000 contract. Personally, I loved the move when we got him but I do not think we should invest money into Murphy right away. He’s a slow, old, defensive liability and we have bigger fish to fry in free agency.

Addison Russell

This guy is scum. At the time of writing this, he is being investigated for domestic violence. I have a blog from before the season even started and I’ve been saying it all season: I hate Addison Russell. He has three kids with three different women, already divorced and now allegedly beat his wife. He is constantly spotted out at bars and clubs nights before day games and he stunk out loud this season. Get him off the team now.

Jason Heyward

This might be the trickiest situation of the Theo/Jed Era. Heyward is set to make over $22,000,000 each year for the next 5 years. Brutal… He has a partial no-trade clause for the next two years and if I’m Jed or Theo, I am calling each team that he hsa off his list. IF we can get Heyward off the books, then we will all be witnesses to a modern day miracle.

Moving onto the free agent class.. And boy oh boy… there are two specific sexy ass names.

Bryce Harper

Lets go. Bryce Harper is entering free agency at the prime age of 26. That is insane. You never see a prime free agent come into free agency any age below 29, but this guy is the scientifically-proven prime of his athletic career. Harper is electric and his bat will instantly make any lineup a threat. His dog’s name is Wrigley and he clearly wants the Cubs to return to the World Series. Also.. this..


Manny Machado

Another 26 year old. I didn’t even think about this until when we were recording our podcast last night. I have been so focused on Bryce Harper the past few years that I didn’t realize that with scumbag Addison Russell on his way out the door (hopefully), we have a hole up the middle. Go HARD after Machado, get some offense and keep this window of opportunity open a little longer. I love this move and this is #1 on my wishlist this offseason.


So this is the final thought that I will leave you all to make this feel a little better. Since Theo and Jed have been running the show, if there is a need on the team, they GO GET THEIR GUY. Now obviously this will mean they have to move Heyward’s contract and that will be close to impossible. But these two guys are maybe the best front office duo in the history of the game and it wouldn’t shock me if they somehow got Heyward off their books. Give me Machado or Harper. Move onto next season. Lets Go.
