New Year, New Banner

Here's one more shot of last year's banner:

Looky there, a nice shot of the Friendly Confines and three sweet cards of Cubs players.
Let's take an inside look at how Darwin Barney, Starlin Castro, and Anthony Rizzo fared in 2013 versus 2012.

2013 was a year that the "core" of the Cubs was supposed to take a step forward.  All three of them regressed in each category.  Hmph.  Coincidence, I think not. 

Evidently, my blog banner is akin to the SI jinx.  Go figure.
So, I've changed things up.  No players will be represented in this year's banner, but instead I have a nice Wrigley Field renovation rendering.  Heck, the renovation is already cursed, so I know my banner won't be the cause of it's downfall.  So I guess I'm in the clear this season.

To Darwin, Starlin, and Anthony: I apologize for personally wrecking your 2013 seasons.  My bad.


  1. So it's your fault! Thanks for fixing the problem....I can start saving for World Series tickets now.

  2. Love the new banner. I'm a sucker for nice looking stadium shots like that one. Even if it is a rendering.
    Kind of inspires me to go, and do something with my own banner, and background today.
