The Dome is Closed...for Now

The Dome is officially closing down. Don't fret, all two of you. As I've mentioned before, I have a new gig. You can find the same ole me at a new address with some new friends at

It was a fun ride, albeit slightly neglectful on my part. So, for now, head on over to Wrigleyville to get your fill. That's where I'll be shackin', probably sleeping on the sofa bed, at least until I get fired.

Nutsack's Got a New Gig

Step 1. Get a crappy blog. Check.

Step 2. Tentatively post to your blog frequently. Check.

Step 3. Forget about your blog temporarily, neglecting what little success it had from start because you're a lazy dunderhead that plays too much XBOX Live. Check-a-mundo.

Step 4. Continue neglecting your blog so that your blog "friends" worry about your wellness and lively hood so much that they send you personal emails ensuring that you're still breathing. Oh, yeah...check.

Step 5. Receive a random invitation to "contribute" to a friendly blog of the same ilk, accept said invitation, and continue the future neglecting of your current blog. Check.

That'll be $35.95, please. Well, it seems as though your good friend In a Nutsack has been recruited by the fine folks over at Wrigleyville23 to be an everyday contributor to their fine establishment. Well, I've taken them up on their offer and plan to be worth every penny. Literally. So, The Dome's content and other whatnots can now be found at Wrigleyville23, and they can now prepare for the success I know Sarge and Wrigleyville have been searching for since the dawn of their site's creation. Whoopie?

Thanks to those guys, they are a class act.

Christmas and Thanksgiving Hiatus/I'm a Lazy Bastard

So, it seems that The Dome has been slightly missed by the "blogging community." Honestly, you ought to be ashamed of yourselves. Well, to be honest, the sentiment is endearing and I trully feel your pain. I've been a bad daddy to The Dome. I've been neglectful and downright abusive. I apoligize. I know that you miss me.

But, there are some very good sports (When I say sports, I mean baseball. And, when I say baseball, I mean the Cubs.) blogs out there. There's the always truthfully cutting Wrigleyville23. Wrigleyville and The Sarge have become good friends of the Nutsacker. They know their Cubs knowledge and are quick to point out how incredibly off-point official Cub media outlets are at this time. There's no better way to start out a morning at the old work station than sipping on some dark coffee and looking up Wrigleyville23 for the day's newest one-liner. The site is updated once a day, at least, and sometimes two, three or even four times a day. WV23 is one of my favorite sites, and they deserve your utmost attention.

Next, there's my, er, good friends over at Hire Jim Essian!. The true draw to this site, and Bad Kermit may hate to hear this, is a little fixture called the ShoutBox where all the assclownery, poo joking, and incessant racism occurs. When there's down time at work, I'll be hanging out in the ShoutBox, doing my best to bring down the standards of HJE!. However, ShoutBoxing aside, Bad Kermit's articles are always insightful, well-written, and usually downright funny. His commentaries on's Carrie Muskat's Mailbag are worth your while.

Next up are my friendly bartenders at Thunder Matt's Saloon. Not to be confused with Thunder Matt's Salon, which is something totally different. Not that there's anything wrong with that. At the Saloon, you'll find more than just Cubs news, although the site is centered around The Dome's favorite Cub, Thunder Matt Murton. No, at the Saloon, you'll find random news about the NFL, MLB, and NCAA. What, there's more? Sure...there'll also be some movie reviews and more hilarious pictures you can shake a stick at.

So, even though things are sluggish at best here at The Dome, there are other alternatives. I'll get back to things here shortly, but in the meantime, enjoy your holidays and continue keeping it real.

Oh, and the Saints are 5-6, two games back of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, whom they play this Sunday in the Superdome. It's been a rollercoaster season and let's hope the Saints can make things interesting in the NFC South by depantsing the Bucs this weekend and moving ever closer to the division title. Go Saints.

One more thing: The Cubs resigned Kerry Wood to a one year, $4.2 M contract yesterday. The Dome has a giant chubby.

The Dome's Halloween Spooktacular!!! Mwaaaaahhhhhh hahahahahaha!!!!

It's officially Halloween at The Dome. Really? Wow, I can't believe tomorrow will already be November 1, which means only one thing: my one-month free membership to XBOX Live will have reached it's completion. I guess I'll have to fork up the $50 soon to get myself a brand spankin' new one-year membership. Anyway, enough of my rambling.

Isn't Halloween one of the greatest "holidays" on the planet? It's the one time of the year where college girls (bless their sweet little hearts) can throw dignity and self-respect to the wind and dress their little tight bodies up like this. And this. And this. And this. And finally, this. That last one isn't a hot little college girl, per se', but scary nonetheless.

So, Happy Halloween, Cubs, Saints, and LSU fans alike. I know it's a weird amalgomation of folks, but we can all get along, right? Sorry for the lack of posting, as I'm sure you guys really are clamoring for my nonsense, but I'm just a lazy ass who really likes not doing stuff. So, there. Enjoy the Halloween Hump Day and stay tuned.

Have No Fear, The Dome is Still Alive!

With the Cubs out of the MLB playoffs, it's now time to return to Saints football. But, for my "friends" who try to stop by The Dome from time to time to see what I have to say about all things Cub, I'll do my best to include them in my postings. Not that you really like me all that much, but because we have this terrible flesh-eating affliction called being a Cubs fan.

Anyway, I have some actual work to do at work today, so a new, relevant, deep thought post may be up tonight or sometime tomorrow. So, for now, enjoy your Hump Day blues and just remember...tomorrow is Thursday, which is a day before Friday. Yay?

Congratulations to the Colorado Rockies for owning the MLB playoffs and winning 21 of their last 22 games. Eat it, ESPN. It looks like the Indians are going to beat the BoSox to be the AL's representative in the World Series. What's sad is that two very solid baseball teams will be in the dance come the end of October, but no one will watch because neither coast will be represented. Boo frickety hoo, you self-absorbed a-holes. The "flyover" states can play, too.

Stay tuned, because I'll be posting a "pick 'em" style for the upcoming NFL slate for this weekend, and you won't want to miss it. Or, you might...but, if you do, you're a douche balloon. Happy Boss' Day to all of you...what greater way to celebrate my boss by posting on my blog during business hours? Sue me. Enjoy your day, kids.

Holy Shit! They Actually Did It!!!

Congratulations to the Chicago Cubs. That's right, your 2007 National League Central Division Champions. And, go me for not giving up. God knows they gave me plenty of opportunities to throw in the towel, but they also provided many more moments to remember. Awwww...I love you guys.

If that didn't ice the cake of awesomeness, my 360 made it safe and sound back to the house. Microsoft was kind enough to throw the old console away and saved me many lonely nights of watching the History Channel and Dog: The Bounty MILF Hunter episodes by replacing it with a brand new model. Even better, they sent a 1 month XBOX Live Gold membership with the new toy and my life will be forever changed. If you have Live, look for "In a Nutsack" to be sniping your stupid face on Rainbow Six Vegas and Call of Duty 2 in the very near future.

Ready for a little more asskickery? LSU is now #1 in the polls, leapfrogging over USC. The Trojans should have lost that game to Washington, though. The Tigers get Florida next at home in Tiger Stadium, though it's the Kentucky Wildcats who trully scare the bejeebus out of me.

Okay, enough random for one post. Enjoy your "case of the Monday's."

Hey, Sweet Lou...yeah, I'm talkin' at you. Take your damn head out of your hands and have a look-see at the pissed off, 6'-2" 185 lb. ball of awesomeness and brutal furocity of average white-bread Americana staring you in the face. You think you're stressed out? I have a Saints/Cubs/LSU blog...times are rough around here, and I don't need you starting infected vaginas like Stella Trachsel in the midst of the most critical week of this Cubs' long season.

I know, you probably didn't ask for Trachsel. Hendry thought he'd be cute and "surprise" you with Sean Marshall's right-handed evil twin. What the hell prompted you to start the lineup you flopped on that card yesterday? If Trachsel wasn't bad enough, you go and throw Jock in center (against a lefty, by the way) and a Detroit reject hack named Craig Monroe in right. Don't you know that it's the peak of hurricane season, and Thunder Matt is at Cat 4 status at the moment?

Look, there at the beginning of the week, we Cubs fans felt pretty strongly that we'd sweep this week's game schedule and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. However, after dropping the Florida series via the sweep, things are glum. I'm not going to be all doom and gloom, but backing into the Central Division champoinship and the playoffs is not the way I wanted to watch this team make the postseason. There are only three games left at the launching pad in Cincinnati. For Jeebus' sake, put up 30 runs a game and let's just put this thing away. The Brewers obviously don't want it. Make me want to watch the postseason...y'know, it's been, like...years.
