On October 3 of last year, FLP! was born. Before transferring over to Hire Jim Essian, The Bottom 126 had a modest following that has made HJE a mild success. Yay? Anyhow, thanks to everyone who’s been with me since the beginning, and thanks to those of you who followed the party over to HJE.

Andy Masur is moving from the Cubs’ radio booth to provide color commentary for the Padres’ radio broadcast. Soon after the annoucement, Cubs color man Pat Hughes, for whom Masur filled in during Hughes’ daily 7th-inning steamer, drew up plans to have a toilet installed in the booth.
“Andy will be greatly missed,” Hughes said through clenched teeth as a noxious odor filled the room. “He did great interviews before the game and, of course, he filled in for me during the seventh inning every day,” Hughes continued as a vein popped out on his reddening forehead. “If you’ll excuse me for a minute… Wait. Better make that ten minutes,” Hughes said, leaving the interview.
The toilet is expected to be installed before the Cubs season starts. Hughes will bring a portable toilet on road trips.
This seventh inning is brought to you by Fiamma portable toilets. Fiamma–when you gotta go, you gotta go.
Loyal readers, I’m out of town skiing until Sunday, so Fire Lou Piniella! is taking an (un)deserved break. I will try to post Sunday, but I will at the latest be back on Monday as The Bottom 126 countdown continues. Have a great weekend.
…but this Super Bowl Shuffle remix has appropriately cheesy lyrics to deserve a mention. I promise I’ll mostly shut up about the Bears until after they beat the Colts 34-21.
