Brian Roberts: Still Not a Cub
Original photo by Keith Allison

Hey Cubs Fans! Brian Roberts is Nonetheless NOT a Cub. You can read my thoughts concerning this non-developing story in the aptly titled post Brian Roberts – Nevertheless Not a Cub at my Chicago Cubs fan weblog.

A lot of fans would really like to see this guy in Chicago. You can not blame Baltimore not letting him go. In fact, they just signed Mr. Roberts to a 4-year contract extension.

  1. Baseball is more than just a sport. It brings people closer together whether they are player or watcher. It gives you the sense of competition and being a part of a team; to work together as people. There’s also a lot of history involved like how the legend Jackie Robinson had to deal with discrimination in the past. Baseball can help people deal with problems that they have in life because once they step onto the field, it’s a whole different world; it’s a ball game. It’s sad to think that some people who just want to play a game of baseball get bullied and made fun of because they couldn’t afford an expensive bat or glove. Baseball is for everyone.
