FAITH, HOPE, AND THE CUBS.

Happy belated birthday Nikita Khrushchev (born April 15, 1894).

NHL: You've waited all year for the hockey playoffs, and now they're here!

RE-HEARING:

A quick perusal of the 3rd DCA website reveals that Alex Michaels has filed a motion for a re-hearing.  Alex has Faith in the legal system. He just loooooves Judge Lagoa's dissent. And why shouldn't he?


A DISMAL EXISTENCE:
Mike Royko, the great Chicago columnist wrote:  "The Chicago Clubs, like life itself, are a losing cause. That's why we have cemeteries. And Wrigley Field."
In the last two seasons, the Cubs have lost 197 games.  And yet, something keeps making Judge Milt Hirsch watch, and root. Every spring Hope springs eternal for millions of Cub fans. Then reality sets in.  Like any good Cub fan, you have to admire the Judge's  faith and tenacity.

Faith and Hope. The tenets of our profession.

See You In Court.

Delaying the inevitable. Motion for Rehearing denied. Start notifying your clients Michaels. Your suspension is assured. Next time it will be a minimum of 91 days and I doubt you will ever pass character and fitness again, or for that matter the bar exam.

Sincerely,

One of those who believes it is time to take the power back

Milt and I were working late (SAO Narcotics) one early October evening in 1984, when I heard him on the phone with his Dad (Milt's voice carries), guaranteeing that their beloved Cubs, with a 2-0 lead against the Padres, would get that one last win and go to the World Series. I told Milt he had just doomed his team (Phillies fans being familiar with baseball curses and losing). Milt again guaranteed victory. Of course, the Padres won three straight and went on to lose to the Tigers in the Series. I had to admire Milt's unwavering optimism, even though the Cubs' '84 collapse was all his fault.

For knowledgeable Cub fans there is no optimism for this year or next. 70 wins will be better than expected.

It's all about the future. They have decided not to tread water in low mediocrity by signing expensive mid-level free agents (with the exception of the execrable Edwin Jackson), but instead are plowing the resources into th eminor leagues.

The Cubs may begin to see the fruits of this around the middle of next year. Remember the names Kris Bryant, Javier Baez and Hialeah's own Albert Almora. I've waited 60 years; a few more won't matter.

Low blow on the hockey quip Rumpy. The Panthers are going to bring the Stanley Cup back to Sunrise this year for sure!
