A few years ago we started this blog and we named it From The 108, duh, cause that is where we sit. The number 108 was based solely on the section that we reside and that was it. Over the years the #108ing hashtag was developed, we did some work with Tyler Saladino, Todd Frazier and now our new power-crush Daniel Palka. Daniel Palka has taken the #108ing to the next level, much like his sound-barrier-shattering homers (with their Paul Walker Death Ride (shout out to Chorizy) velocity). It’s been pretty amazing for us in 2018, so it’s no wonder so many people are trying to steal our shine. For your older folks, shine is exactly what you think it is. Our glow of doing well, our glisten and sparkle. It’s a good thing, and much like Marsellus Wallace’s briefcase, people done want it.
Who are the biggest offenders? Without question it’s the boys up north. Is it any shocker that they took 108 years to win a World Series AFTER we got the 108 name out there to the masses? Fuck no. Lazy ass Cubes. That was bad, but last week we were alerted by Armand’s Pizza that the Cubes were trowing shade at us in a “hype” video on their new scoreboards. Have no idea what I am talking about? WTF? Read our Twitter!
Editor’s Note – Maybe the Cubes should spend more time explaining to their fanbase that the game is for the kids, not you, you grown ass man stealing a ball from a kid. You might have gotten your ass kicked at G rate. Not just sayin, we sayin.
Glad there was a happy ending for the kid. Not that type of happy ending #Wally$. Jeesh.
Also, several people have come out and said that the guy actually gave the kid a ball already. Several (I assume Russian) bots have said yes, that’s true. Even huge asshole Dave Kaplan said to get over it. Whatever Dave, suck our balls.
I think Trump should look into this, I think they (Cubes-Stream Media) is whitewashing this story.
Are there other offenders than the Cubes? FUCKING DUH. Would I write an entire blog just bashing the Cubes? YES. But that’s not the point.
Enter Kane County Cougars and beer maker Tangled Roots. What is their new beer offering out there in Kane County? 108 Double Stitch Ale. Coincidence? FUCK NO. What makes it even more insulting is that it’s beer and we FUCKING LOVE BEER. They peddle some bullshit that there are 108 stitches in a baseball, but we all know the real reason why they used the 108 number. FUCKING US. BEER AND BASEBALL = FROM THE 108. WHO DOESN’T FUCKING KNOW THAT? You dicks. Now, this is one of the few that could make this up to us and send us some 108 beer so we can determine if we are ok with you using our shine. Capiche?
So we are looking your way Tangled Roots Brewery. Make like Spike and #DoTheRightThing.
Wintrust Bank uses the 108 name too, but since it’s Sox related I will let that slide. But you have to admit to yourself (and to me) that you had no idea that there were 108 stitches in a baseball before you knew of our blog. We were the chicken and the egg. We were 1st, no fucking question.
What’s my point here? We are the originals, the OG’s. And you should have no problem supporting us through your tweets using #108ing when you are doing something wicked awesome usually while drinking mass amounts of alcohol. We’d like you to use ride share programs of course or walk your drunk ass home. That’s the 108 way!
Keep tweeting your #108ing photos at us and tag us in all your exploits! And fellas the ladies are even getting in on the movement, which is really awesome. Let’s try not to scare them away. We know some single guys that need a good Sox fan lady in their life. Especially our buddy Gabe. He just wants a girl to enjoy baseball and football with. if you are that lady, tweet at him here! He’s fucking crazy quick with White Sox and Bears trivia, THAT’S WHY HE’S THE MUTHAFUCKING CHAMP! What’s not to love?
Gabe with some girl.
Gabe with local stunnas.
