Goatriders of the Apocalypse

Tomorrow's plan, this year's outlook

I haven't really discussed this with anybody yet, but I think that we will roll out tomorrow a preview of what GROTA will be up to starting in April.  We've got a lot in store for you guys as we strive to be both entertaining and informative.

Tomorrow morning I will post a Series Preview topic that will cover the split-squad matchups between the Cubs and the Indians (on at 1:05 Central) and the Cubs against the White Sox (on at 8:05 CST). 

One or both of the games themselves will also be covered during a GameCast - it's not going to be anything that warrants heavy lifting, but we'll open a discussion thread for you all to post in if you want to follow the games among friends at GROTA.

After each game we'll post Game Recaps that will cover the highlights of what went down.  In the meantime, I'll have to hurry to actually make the graphics for the different post types. 

Something we'll do during the season to make the blog a little more interactive is give you guys easy access to older articles that are relevant to the game or series at hand.  For example, when the Cubs play the Cardinals for the last time in September, we'll have up a Series Preview which links back to the GameCasts and Game Recaps of their previous contests.  It's all a part of making GROTA full service which I hope you'll all enjoy quite a bit.


I'm anxious to see if you have a quota for pissing matches? Is it annual, monthly, weekly?


keeps the blood flowing.

Even more frequently, if needed.

I'm not sure I'm digging this rating thing. Those other ideas all sound good though

I'm pretty sure it has

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with Chicago Blogs, in association with Red Eye and the Tribune.

1st time reader

But not first season Cub fan. But yes, this is my first "season" reading this website. Didn't really know it existed. Now, I am addicted to it. It is a must read for me everyday instead of doing my research project at school (which is Cub related......lemme know if you want to know it). I think that idea is awesome. I'm stuck in a town full of Cardinals fans (Macomb, IL). Chatting about the game(s) is what I enjoy as I tend to as many as I can throughout the season. GREAT idea and I hope to be a part of the discussion.
