STRAY CAST: The Cubs season reminds me of an old float down the Vermilion River; the dam at the cement plant ahead.
(OK, paddlers will recognize that this is not the dam, but I believe Wildcat Rapids.)
Trying to catch up on Stray Casts. This was the one yesterday and seems apt. We are in September.
(This site and our outdoors media company are named for the Stray Cast, which has snapped off the end of my outdoors column on Wednesdays in the Sun-Times outdoors page since April 2, 2003.)
