I’m rooting for the Cubbies, but deep down I want to say: “They’ll blow it in the playoffs. They will, they’ll blow it in the playoffs.” (quote from “Major League II” for those of you who don’t know).
As long as they keep Harden and Zambrano healthy and consistent (Zambrano isn’t always the most consistent), and as long as their bullpen (Marmol and Wood) stays strong, healthy, and consistent, then they just might be able to pull this off!
Scot, if they make the playoffs and I get tickets, would you like to go with me?!?! We can be a bleacher bum and drink a beer together!

Scot,
Just wait till the world series when they get swept by the Sox and we win game four at Wrigley.
I’d meet you for coffee somewhere in the suburbs after the city burns down.

Scot, I was 13 in 1969. What a way to enter adolescence! I’ve never recovered, and the only ultimate remedy is a trip to the Series with a Cubs’ championship. There are a lot of us out here. Thanks for waving the flag.

The Cubs will choke again in the playoffs. Maybe this year, they will at least win one game.

David #8:
they’re a few games away from clinching their division. but the scenario of the sox playing the cubs in the world series is about as likely as the cubs winning the world series. take it from a chicago cynic…

I know nothing about the Cubs, although I have a whole American step-family that does! Do you ever come to the UK, Scot? How could I contact you otherwise? I need to pick your brains.

Hi Scot,
I’ve been reading your blog for awhile. I love your heart and your passion. I first heard you speak on a podcast from a lecture you gave to Starting Point group leaders at Northpoint Church in Atlanta. I’ve read your blog and Community Called Atonement since then. I appreciate your words of wisdom for the Emergent/Emerging/etc leaders. And since the Indians aren’t in the post-season, I’ll be rooting for the Cubs. (I’m an old minor league player who spent 5 years in the Twins and Reds systems trying to make it to the show.)
I’m a church planter who came to Cleveland, Ohio 22 years ago to start Cuyahoga Valley Church.
I think that right now, we are in an exciting season in the life of Cuyahoga Valley Church. We are averaging 1,800 adults in 5 weekend services. In 2008, we have sent over 80 CVCers to plant a new church, bringing our total of church plants we are currently sponsoring to six. We have baptized 73 people so far this year. Our attendance has grown by 5 % over the last year. God is moving and working.
Amidst all this activity of God, we are feeling God?s leading to prepare for an even more fruitful future. And I am now seeking to follow the Lord?s direction to transition his responsibilities to a younger leader. We hope to do this over the next couple of years. Therefore, we are looking for the person we anticipate may one day be the Senior Pastor of CVC.
So please pray for us.
I am asking you to read through the job description below and then ask the Lord, ?Who should I send this to? Who might know of a candidate that would be a good fit at CVC??
I’m sure you know some young leaders who have a very bright future in serving the King. Please forward the information about this opportunity to some younger leaders that you think might be interested in finding out more. And would you ask your contacts if they would send the information out to people they might know as well?
Thanks!
Rick Duncan

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
