What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
If you are an old geezer like me, you know that during World War II, the NFL ran so short of players because of the war that for three years between 1942 and 1945, the league merged the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles into one team, the Phil-Pitt Steagles. Because of my locale, two of the baseball teams I see nearly everyday are the pair which make their diamond domicile in the “Windy City.”
Granted, it’s been a while, but if you hark back into the archives here at Dubsism, we’ve screwed around before with the idea of building an all-time team from guys who played for two different franchises; consider our Frankenstein-like creations like the Calisota Twingels and the New Angeles Dodgekees. With summer upon is, and given the fact that when I’m not blogging, I’m falling asleep on my couch during the sixth inning of (insert baseball game here), it only becomes natural that some sort of twilight’s gleaming dreaming nightmare might re-charge the Tesla coils and spark life into a Chicago baseball 25-man monster all our own.
With that, allow us to introduce the Chicago CubSox…
