Just One Bad Century--March 3

Today's Cubs Birthdays feature a man named Zip, and a dummy visiting spring training. That's right, a dummy.

The A/V Club features a Pat Hughes narrated tour of Wrigley Field's history.

This Week in 1945 was posted over the weekend. You can read about the swanky Cubs spring training location that year...French Lick, Indiana.

This morning we also updated This Week in 1908. How long ago was 1908? Alexander Graham Bell is featured. He and his aviation crew are preparing the first public aeroplane flight.

In the latest Cubs news, did you feel like I did yesterday when Castro got hurt and Javier Baez came in to take his place? It had a real Wally Pip feel to it, didn't it?

I'm heading down to Arizona on Wednesday night. I'll have reports from spring training on Thursday and Friday.
