Page Update

October 12, 2006 | Comments (0) | by Jake the Terrible Cubs Fan

With not a whole lot to talk about lately I've been tinkering with our page and have added a few new links here and there. Here's a quick recap of them.

Project 3000 - In the right sidebar you'll see that big photo with Derrek Lee. That link takes you to a PayPal account set up by the folks at GROTA. They're taking donations for Lee's foundation that helps fight Leber's congenital amaurosis (LCA), the affliction that has rendered Lee's young daughter partially blind. GROTA plans to take all the proceeds they receive and present Derrek with a check at the Cubs Convention this winter.

Here's a link about their project:

Here's the website for Project 3000:

Yardbarker - You may notice a new button at the end of each post. These buttons allow readers to link the article to Yardbarker and post about it. It's just yet another way to get Thunder Matt's out there to a wider audience. If you like an article of ours and want to share it with others, then Yardbarker is a great forum to do so.

And Yet Some More Links...
I added a few new links under this category in the right sidebar, such as....

WOXY - Most widely known as the radio station whose jingle was repeated over and over again by Rain Man. "Bam! The future of rock and roll." A few years ago the station shut down but was opened up again on the web with streaming audio broadcasts. Last month, due to a lack of money, they were forced to shut down again. But thanks to some new investors they are back once more. If you're into the bleeding edge of indie rock and want to hear new stuff that your regular stations won't ever play, I highly recommend checking them out. I've posted a graphic link.

Bad Idea Blue Jeans
Named after a great SNL commerical spoof that has been beaten into the ground as a reference used by Bill Simmons in his columns, BIBJ covers various sports in Indiana as well as other random stuff.

The Sneeze
A frickin' hilariously awesome blog I came across. It's hard to explain as he talks about all sorts of goofy shit. A personal favorite in our household is his feature called "Steve, Don't Eat It!"

Left Field Link of the Week
Aside from the other TMS bartenders and my brother, I have no idea if anyone ever checks out the LF Links. I have been pretty regularly with changing it weekly. I plan on setting up a LF Link archive in the near future, so stay tuned for that.

That's all the new stuff for now. If anyone needs me I'll be in my office trying to weigh the pros and cons of Lou Piniella inevitably becoming the next Cubs manager.
