The Cubs Brickyard is a Chicago Cubs news, humor and sports parody web site. We offer hilarious – according to us – parody news pieces, and we occasionally even stumble on some actual insight. You might have to dig through poo and fart jokes to find it, but it’s there. We focus on the Chicago Cubs, but we’ll also stray into the rest of Baseball, as well as Football and Basketball, and the ubiquitous “Other Sports.”
The Cubs Brickyard started as a “regular” Cubs blog in early 2007 called simply “The Brickyard.” The Brickyard was the blog for Bricks and Ivy Radio – an *excellent* Chicago Cubs Podcast – but after developing our parody style and an inflated sense of self-importance, we broke off to start the site you see today in April of 2008 (which is incidentally why many of the older articles are dated in the third week of April, 2008 – but who cares about dates anyway, right?).
Although the majority of what we do is “fake news,” it all comes with a tiny nugget of truth. It’s a fun and entertaining way to read and learn about the Cubs, and keep up on the world of sports. And for those not into the whole “parody” thing, we’ve even got a section of traditional Chicago Cubs jokes.
In case it isn’t painfully obvious, we would like to reiterate: The Cubs Brickyard is a PARODY news publication, so accounts and quotes are FICTIONAL. No one should construe these fake articles as being fact. Additionally, any similarity between this and other publications is entirely coincidental. Don’t sue. We don’t have money anyway.
We’re also home to the GREATEST Chicago Cubs message board on the internet called Sons of Ivy. If you’re looking for the latest Cubs news and rumors, or just want to shoot the shit about the Cubs, that’s the place to go.
The Cubs Brickyard and Sons of Ivy are in no way affiliated with the Chicago Cubs National League Ballclub.
The Funniest Ways People Found Us
Usually, people find us by way of other Cubs’ blogs, word of mouth, or after seeing our Super Bowl ad. But sometimes, people find us using search engines – and when they do, it’s usually by searching for things like “Chicago Cubs jokes,” “Cubs news,” etc. But sometimes, the terms they use are much, much stranger. And hilarious-er.
As a special treat, to tell you something about us, here is a list of the best search terms people used to find us with search engines. The list will be updated regularly:
- “what to do with your tongue when you makeout,” and “christmas thigh surprise” – Pie and Soriano Surprise Makeout Session
- “sexy coast guard women” – Danica Patrick Able to Drive
- “discipline testicles” – Lack of Testicle Grabbing Production Leads to Edmonds Signing
- “barry melrose greatest in the world hair” – Mel Kiper Placed in Induced Coma
