re: 6 cities respond that they would like to be Pels NBDL home - CubsFanBudMan
[quote] The uptick in fans based on the location of a d-league team will likely be negligible at best.[/quote] I know it's not the same as baseball, but when the zyphers were affiliated with the Astros, there was a major shift in the Nola MLB fan base. I'm not a fan of the NBA, but I would lo...

re: The foul call would of resulted in zero runs - CubsFanBudMan

re: Do tiger fans always dominate at CWS - CubsFanBudMan
I've been in Disney world this week. Tuesday night when the waiter came to our table he said "LSU fan, I know what not to say." I interupted him and said, yeah, we had a bad night last night. He was caught off guard. Turns out he was a Florida State fan, and had no clue about the CWS....

re: Have you ever "worked the system" to get something? - CubsFanBudMan
I don't mind working the system to get a discount or save some money. At Disney World, you have to buy your tickets with the resort to get the meal plan. I booked my room only, then purchased discounted tickets, and added them to my Disney account, then contacted Disney to add the meal plan. Saved m...

re: So glad Big Ben is announcing - CubsFanBudMan
I know I'm going to get crushed, but I would love some variety. Ben is great for a series, but he has the same comments every week. "pitcher is going to have his best stuff 1/3 of the time, average stuff 1/3 of the time, and struggle 1/3 of the time. I want to see how he does when he struggles." No ...

re: Need av receiver help 7.2 channel w/ only 2 speakers - CubsFanBudMan
You should be able to go into the receiver's settings and tell it what speakers are connected. It will then process the sound appropriately. If the receiver thinks you have a center channel connected, and you don't, then you'll miss out on a lot. Is zone 1 inside? You should pick up a center chan...

re: I.am.an.idiot. Chromecast feature. - CubsFanBudMan
Amazon FireStick does the same thing. For those that don't know what CEC is, it allows electronics to talk to each other through the HDMI cables. Remote commands are one example. When I turn on my bluray player, my TV automatically switches inputs. That's another example. ...

re: Ooma VOIP - any users? - CubsFanBudMan
I ported my number from Vonage to Google Voice. I think it was $20. I use an Obihai device, around $50, to access Google Voice. No monthly fee. Works great. Only thing I'm missing is that it doesn't display the name with caller ID, just the number. I have a Panasonic cordless phone system that allow...
