While it is getting late early for the conventional journalism industry as we know it, Chicago is lucky to have the services of a late inning pinch hitter that can drive us out of a funk with one swing of the bat. The famed Huffington Post led off its lineup of local market publications in Chicago earlier this month, and ObamaCubs.com encourages everyone to read it early and often.
As Chicago’s grand patriarch Richard J. Daley would say today, if you can’t help those who have linked to your website than “who can you help?” That said, we would be remiss not to disclose that HuffPo was kind enough to introduce ObamaCubs.com to its world on August 18. The exposure generated a nice uptick in our early polling.
Once visiting HuffPo Chicago, we also recommend you take a look at the tragically genius submission by our friends at TheHeckler.com. The Heckler harkens back to around this time in 1984, when the Red Barron Rick Sutcliff, catch a fire Jody Davis and pastor Jesus Manny Trillo were on their way to bringing Chicago a World Series Champion for the first time in 76 years.
Not only did the Cubs predictably lose in the NLCS after being up two games, but the series was an overcooked appetizer to further disappointment in November. The world would have been a better place if MondaleCubs.com had its own chance to shine.
