Time To Send Parkey Packing

Time To Send Parkey Packing
I have been attempting to write this since last Sunday, but am only now, on Thursday night, having any success putting my thoughts down in print. Following the “double doink”, the play that cemented Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey into Chicago sports history forever (in a Steve Bartman kind of way), I immediately left the... Read more »

Does Chase Daniel Have The Best Job In The World?

Does Chase Daniel Have The Best Job In The World?
Blue Mountain State was a sitcom that premiered on Spike TV in 2010 and ran for three seasons. To put it simply, the show was absurd (take a look at the opening. Now imagine what an actual episode would entail). The series followed a fictional college football team, the Blue Mountain State Mountain Goats, focusing... Read more »

I Am Thankful For Mack, Lauri, And A Whole Lot More

I Am Thankful For Mack, Lauri, And A Whole Lot More
As I sat at my dining room table yesterday, surrounded by my family and copious amounts of food, we began to go around the table and say what we were thankful for. Admittedly, I was rather annoyed. For the record, I have nothing against the exercise of discussing what everyone was thankful for at all.... Read more »

Bears Weather This Sunday

Bears Weather This Sunday
I swear it was a good idea at the time, but looking back, I regret everything. It was a warm August night when the deed was done. Some drinks were had; conversation flowed with ease among friends. More drinks followed and what then followed those drinks (besides more drinks) was arguably the greatest plan that... Read more »

Mack To The Playoffs

Mack To The Playoffs
On Saturday morning I woke up around seven, checked my phone, put my slippers on, puttered into the living room (I consider myself old enough to putter around the house at this point), flipped on SportsCenter (is it just me or has it gotten good again?), and started to make breakfast (veggie omelette. It was... Read more »

My Apology Letter to Brian Urlacher

My Apology Letter to Brian Urlacher
Dear Brian, I know love means never having to say your sorry, but that does not excuse my actions, or in this case, my inaction. From the bottom of my heart, I am sorry. I am so very sorry. I am sorry I wasn’t there in the crowd to support you last Saturday in Canton.... Read more »

Bullish on the Future of the Bears and Bulls

Bullish on the Future of the Bears and Bulls
Over the weekend, I flew out to Salt Lake City, Utah for my cousin’s bachelor party. That sentence may seem confusing, as “Salt Lake City” and “Bachelor Party” go together like ketchup on a hot dog, but Salt Lake City was not my final destination. In fact, Salt Lake City wasn’t even in the same... Read more »

Pace Should Pass On NFL Combine

Pace Should Pass On NFL Combine
I really wish Chicago Bears General Manager Ryan Pace had passed on attending the NFL combine this week. Why couldn’t one of our trademark Chicago blizzards have snowed him into his office, preventing him from attending the glorified beauty pageant in Indianapolis? Why couldn’t he stay behind and watch prospects game film instead of watch... Read more »

Fox is out, but who is in?

Fox is out, but who is in?
On Wednesday afternoon, a friend of mine (let’s call him friend A) texted another friend of mine (let’s call him friend B) and myself the question “who do you we like for head coach right now” and the following conversation transpired (please note that all three members of this group chat are indeed millennials, thus...

2017 NFL Draft: Why Does Ryan Pace Hate Me?

2017 NFL Draft: Why Does Ryan Pace Hate Me?
I originally wanted to get this up by Monday, but I needed more time. Time to fully process what transpired last Thursday night. Time to comprehend how what happened could of happened. Time to make sure I wasn’t part of some elaborate joke that was taken just a little too far. Time to figure out... Read more »
