Last year, I ran what I hoped to become a tradition here at Cubbie Nation, the current team captured in pictures.
The premise is pretty simple. Teams and seasons come and go, and for as much time as we give to being with them, there's something wrong about the notion that many of these guys are gone, if not altogether forgotten, by the time the playoffs have ended.
You know the guys. The Jose Ascanios, Kevin Harts, and Andres Blancos of the game. Maybe we'll see them again; maybe not. But you wore the uniform, and we cheered for you, so consider this my way of saying thanks. One photo for each (sans Mitch Atkins and Chad Fox) man who spent time on the 25-man roster, captured in a way that only a fan can.
This year, the photo galleries have been moved to my new multmedia site, Triple Play New Media. You can find it here. Cubbie Nation will be undergoing some pretty extreme upgrades by the start of next season, and as such we've moved the media galleries over to a professionally hosted site that specializes in serving photos. I think you'll find it makes for a much better viewing experience.
Some folks have said they've been completely blown away; other said do better. Why don't you take a look, drop me a note, and let me know what you think. And Happy New Year from Cubbie Nation.
