Back in 2006 Chicago's WGN TV made the decision to become part of The CW Network. I haven't found what CW stands for but it may explain one thing. Last week we got a bit caught up in the Cubs success and thought it would be fun to watch one of their games. But we quickly found out that unlike the many years when WGN was a national cable network with most Cubs games, the station stopped broadcasting the Cubs.
All we found on WGN were unlikeable and odd tv series shows. Turns out the Cubs are pretty much just a Chicago area viewing team now. Whether this separation from The CW will bring back more baseball is unknown since the story mainly obsesses with Bozo the Clown shows, but I hope the Cubs come back for all of us to watch.
Seriously, Atlanta still has a national network, TBS, which bores us with many Braves games, why not the Cubs.
