Celtics still hung on to beat the Heat 85-82 in Boston, which is the only time I want to see them win. It's quite possible that after that missed jam Big Baby went and did something like this:
You might think that Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane fell out of the womb with the world's sweetest mullet, but that's not how it happened.
Here's the feature done on Kane right before the 2007 NHL Draft. You can see the makings of the mullet there, but it's not quite sprouted. It's more of a Dirk Nowitzki-type look.
The guys at HockeyGods.com bring you Patrick Kane's Version of Miami Trick: "I'm in Chicago Trick". And it's pretty much the greatest gift we could give you this holiday season. Enjoy!

So what is it? "5 minutes in 30 minutes, for you folks with ADD, for you folks that don't have a lot of time. You wanna know the news of the world? You wanna know the pertinent stuff? It's right here!"
North continues to reinvent himself, and get paid for it along the way. He already has several sponsors on board ("American Mattress -- 80 stores nationwide!") and is bringing back some of his old bits like "The Bookie Priest". He also produces a short video each day titled, "I'm Just Sayin'!", derived from one of North's trademark catchphrases.
North is also doing a weekend radio show on Fox Sports. This after his "Monsters in the Morning" switched stations and became "Monsters and Money in the Morning", then was canceled, and after the internet radio venture he was a part of blew up.
North continues to do what most Chicagoans do. He takes his hits, gets back up and goes to work. A lot. He shakes off criticism, ignores the haters and does what he does. Even on his former station, WSCR, a lot of the talent like to poke fun at him, some of it seemingly mean-spirited. I'd guess that North made most of them a lot of money over the years, and like him or not, there is no Score without him.
It's somewhat hard to believe that there isn't a place for North on local sports radio, but then I am not privy to things such as contract negotiations or bridges burned or any of that inside talk. I could be wrong, but I'd guess there is still a solid fan base that would still like to hear him on-air.
Maybe someday. But for now North will keep on, keepin' on. And The Bookie Priest? He nailed the Titans +3 last night.

Chicago Bears fans walked up to special "living rooms" around downtown Chicago and Soldier Field to share their favorite stories and memories of the 1985 Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears. A variety of the shared memories from Allstate's "Call to Glory" events will be featured during the Allstate Glory Days tribute on Nov. 5.
Another killer auto-tune from DJ Steve Porter. How many football fans want to rip on Randy Moss, but really hope he ends up on their team? I bet it's a lot. I'll take him here on the Chicago Bears. I bet Jay Cutler would too.
I don't catch much of SNL anymore, but this parody of the Brett Favre Wrangler Jeans commercial is hilarious. Kudos to Jason Sudeikis for a the Favre impression.

Perhaps there is hope for the Chicago Cubs after all. Or not.

An incredible story.
An accompanying article to the video said that the pitcher, Tom Willis, has thrown out the first pitch this year for the Tampa Bay Rays, Florida Marlins, Milwaukee Brewers, St. Louis Cardinals, Cleveland Indians, Toronto Blue Jays, Detroit Tigers, Cincinnati Reds -- and the Texas Rangers will be next.
Willis is a motivational speaker who wants to throw out the first ball at every major league baseball stadium. I think the Cubs and White Sox need to give him a call. I also think it's awesome that his name is Tom Willis. The fictional Tom Willis was the neighbor of George Jefferson on "The Jeffersons". That show is totally underrated.
When he's not tweeting about how much of his famous dad's money he's been blowing at Las Vegas clubs, Michael Jordan's son Marcus fancies himself an original rap.

These Bears sure do know how to hit. Not the Chicago Bears -- they still need some more practice. I'm talking about the Bloomingdale Bears, a local youth football team. Keep your eyes on the split end, and watch how he annhilates the opposing defender. Somewhere, Coach Ditka weeps with joy.
Here it is from another angle.
That kid gets laid out and he doesn't get up for a while. We hope he's feeling better. We also hope that the Bloomingdale Bears will allow the Chicago Bears into one of their practices so they can learn to block like that. 5 sacks by the Raiders? Really?
So we got that going for us. Sigh.
One more thing: Hawks Win!
Poor little girl. I hope she's not traumatized for life. I had a similar experience as a child. My brother got to be Brian Baschnagel and I had to be Bob Avellini. Somedays...it still hurts.

At least he gave the fans something to cheer about. Chicago baseball teams are a combined 46-56 at the moment.

Kopecky has been great in replacing Andrew Ladd. He did not play in the San Jose series but had an assist and the game-winning goal in game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Check out what they are peddling in this old commercial. That little ear radio now looks like those huge piercings people put in their ear lobes. I just had an awesome idea -- I'm going to get a huge Cubs piercing for my ear! Maybe I'll wait until they get to .500.
And is that the next Cubs manager stealing 2nd base in the commercial? Maybe...
Will Ferrell recently took the mound in a minor league game for the Round Rock Express as Rojo Johnson. He comes out to the mound wearing some massive gold chains, carrying a plastic bag with beer. He cracks a beer before his warm-up tosses and of course, hilarity ensues.
He even has a post-game presser:
Castro homers in first Cubs at-bat, but seems slower than scouting reports that detailed his great speed. Hmmm...
Kevin Garnett was more than disappointed with the Celtics loss at home to Kevin Durant and the Thunder. He drops a major f-bomb on live TV and has a bad case of the sulkies.
Boston has dropped 2 straight and slid to the 4th seed in the East. If the season ended today they would go up against the Bucks in round 1 of the playoffs, and hopefully Scott Skiles has enough wiles to get the Bucks past the Celtics. That would be wonderful.
Maybe Garnett is still sore from his 'nasty' fall the other night.

Get the full story on the hit and the Hawks game recap over at Blackhawks Confidential. Here is the video of the play.
As Henry says, "Someone who achieved his athletic pinnacle on the high school wrestling mat and spends his day in front of a computer couldn't possibly stand a chance against a starting NFL Quarterback, right?"
Watch and see:
Is that fun or what?
