Wait 'Til Next Year

Wait 'Til Next Year
The Cubs season ended late Tuesday night and for the second straight year, we will have to wait until next year, as we failed to win the World Series. Despite finishing tied for the best record in the National League, our post-season run ended before I even had the chance to consume my first pumpkin... Read more »

When Is It Ok To Start Worrying About Trubisky?

When Is It Ok To Start Worrying About Trubisky?
I am constantly reminded by talking heads, Twitter, and the Bears faithful,  that Sunday was our quarterback’s 28th career start since high school (definitely the 1st time that fact about an NFL quarterback has been brought to my attention). I am told not to forget the Bear’s win over the weekend was just our quarterback’s... Read more »

This Brand of Football Sure Looks Familiar

This Brand of Football Sure Looks Familiar
As I recklessly high-fived my buddies next to me, Prince Amukamara returned an interception for a touchdown to seal up a Chicago Bears victory on the TV screens in front of me. Immediately following the touchdown, a tidal wave of Bears defense nostalgia swept over the the entire bar (possibly just me, but I am... Read more »

Mack Was Who We Thought He Was

Mack Was Who We Thought He Was
I am not going to delve into the final outcome of the Chicago Bears Sunday night season opener against our lifetime rival Green Bay Packers. Dissecting the game, specifically the 4th quarter, would just be too hard right now. It’s just too soon. However, that doesn’t mean we still can’t talk about the Bears. So,... 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 »

Can You Learn To Love Someone You Hate? The Daniel Murphy Predicament

Can You Learn To Love Someone You Hate? The Daniel Murphy Predicament
I like to think I am able to pinpoint memorable moments in my life with fair accuracy, such as my first home run (July 2002), first Chipotle burrito (June 2004), or the first time I got drunk (October 2006). All three of those events were happy moments. Moments I look back on, remember well (the... Read more »

We Never Saw David Bote Coming

We Never Saw David Bote Coming
I am not going to pretend in the slightest that I knew David Bote was going to be an essential part of the Chicago Cubs roster this season. Hell, I didn’t know David Bote existed on opening day. No clue. Never heard of him. If you would have introduced me to him at the bar... 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 »

Jabari Parker Is Coming Home

Jabari Parker Is Coming Home
Same city. Same high school. Same injury. Hopefully, different story. Former Chicago Bull and NBA MVP Derrick Rose came home to the Windy City following his prestigious career at Simeon high school after just one season away at  Memphis. He lasted 8 seasons before multiple ACL injuries, arrogance, Reggie Rose, and eventually, a lack of... Read more »
