The season knows as 2020 is rapidly coming to an end as our beloved Cubs are gearing up for the playoffs. Still no events at Club 400, but many things happening in the Club 400 Universe. There may be a Club 400 Podcast Contest in this show and for that reason alone you should check this show out. Did you know that Club 400 Lager from Crystal Lake Brewery is the #1 rated beer in the Northwest Suburbs of Illinois?
A good friend of Club 400, Mike Gomoll is the guest for our show titled "Joey's Song". Joey's Song was started in 2010 following the death of 5 year old Joey Gomoll. Joey suffered from a rare and debilitating form of epilepsy known as Dravet Syndrome. Dravet's caused persistent seizures which were never able to be controlled through medications leading to severe learning disabilities. While Dravet's robbed Joey of the ability to speak, Joey remained a happy and fun loving child. He was happiest when music was playing, allowing him to hum, drum and sing in his own way. To be present when music was playing meant only one thing, that Joey would soon have you dancing and enjoying the music with him.
Let's get thicker skin everyone. Baseball is for lovers not fighters. We are all dingbats a little bit. On this show we touch on a potpourri of topics all for the fans of the beloved 1st place Chicago Cubs. We are dingbats and we love everyone who is listening. Go Cubs Go. Tune in for our special shout outs!
Did you ever have an experience that was so different and unexpected than what you planned? Stu and William went to Wrigley View Rooftop expecting to see one of the only games of 2020 live and ended up meeting (hopefully) lifelong friends - the owners and employees of Wrigley View Rooftop. This has also turned into the next Club 400 Event...so check out our latest podcast.
It has been the strangest year ever, but we are 6 days away from the start of the 2020 baseball season. After several months of being pessimistic, it appears that at least on TV, we will finally be able to watch meaningful baseball. As Cubs fans, we are all excited to see how new manager David Ross pulls this team together and get them off to a fast start. With a 60 game season, every game is going to be critical this year.
It has been 3.5 months since our last podcast. It has been 3.5 months since our last live baseball game. It has been 3.5 months since Club 400 has been hosting a party. Basically, it has been 3.5 months since the world was turned upside down. But guess what? Even though we had no opening day at Miller Park, no trip to London and no Friday Funday's at Wrigley, we will survive. We hope you enjoy our quarantine ramble. We are back!
Since the 1980's there has been one voice in Chicago that is more recognizable than all the rest. He has been a long time singer for the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, Chicago White Sox, Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Wolves. In January 1991, he sang the National Anthem at the NHL All-Star Game and was nearly drowned out by the cheering crowd. He often sings with his talented wife Kathleen. Now he adds to the list of accomplishments and venues a performance at Club 400. Ladies and gentlemen, it is our honor to present Mr. Wayne Messmer.
Back from Spring Training, the boys discuss the good times in Mesa, Arizona. We also talk about all of the upcoming events surrounding opening day. Special guests include Bill Watts, Crawly and Danny Rockett. After you hear this show, you will either want to put your name on the early list for Spring Training 2021 or you may want to just run.
It is the best time of the year. Optimism is in the air across the county. The boys of summer are back in the spring. And there is nothing better than spring training. Every season brings a newness to it and all the teams in the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues depart to the beautiful weather with hope - hope to make the team, hope to be an impact player and hope to help your team win a World Championship. Club 400 will be in Mesa Arizona to get the party started!
The boys (Stu, Eric and Eric) have returned from Randy Hundley Fantasy Camp with tales of beer drinking, hitting, Eddie Vedder, and so much more.
