Stiff Arm: Agents Should be Seen, Not Heard.  Actually, Probably Neither.
Thursday is my traditional day for a Stiff Arm.  It’s Thursday, and I haven’t given a Stiff Arm in a long time, so let’s do it.

Super Soldier Field?

Super Soldier Field?
Roger Goodell was in town today, and thankfully not to hand out fines to Bears players.  Soldier Field became the first NFL stadium to be LEED certified.  LEED has nothing to do with sports, so I won’t bore you with details.

    Brady Stiff

    Born and raised in the northwest suburbs, I've been passionate about sports all my life. I'm trying to turn my passion into a career. I graduated from Indiana University in 2009 with a degree in sports broadcasting. I am a sports producer for WGN Radio, producing Cubs, Blackhawks, and Northwestern Football broadcasts, as well as Sports Central sometimes on the weekends. I also host a sports talk show on Chicagolandsportsradio.com called On The Sidelines.
