You don’t have to be a baseball specialist to read the cubschic.com blog since Jennifer Lyng doesn’t blab on about statistics. This “chic” focuses on the players and spices up her writing with opinions on Big Z’s meltdowns, AAA call-ups and Soriano’s hop. A former boyfriend bought her the domain name so she’d stop venting to him. “Cubschic” is “Chic. Cubs” with the words reversed, get it? Lyng’s baseball upbringing rocked: her mom let her skip school in fifth grade to attend opening day, and her grandmother worked in broadcasting with Jack Brickhouse, so she never wanted for Cubs tickets.
