Blackhawks Light Up Scoreboard In First Two Games

You would think the long layoff due to the lockout would have left teams rusty and off to a slow start.  Not our Blackhawks, who in two games have lit the lamp for eleven goals in two wins against the defending Stanley Cup champions and the team that eliminated them in the playoffs last season....

Baseball Hall of Fame: Let 'Em All In!

Earlier this week the Baseball Writers of America made the bold decision to elect no one into the Hall of Fame this year.  Not Barry Bonds.  Not Mark McGwire.  Not Roger Clemens.  Not Craig Biggio.   Nobody.  There will be no new inductees in Cooperstown for the first time since 1996.  The closest person to...

2012: A Horrible Year For Chicago Sports

2012 is finally over and it couldn’t have come fast enough.  In my 27 years on earth I can’t remember a more depressing and all around disaster of a year in Chicago sports than 2012.  All five of the major sports teams had little to no success and either suffered from collapses, injuries or just...

Bears Still Hopeful, But Playoffs Still Seem Hopeless

The Bears did their part by beating the lowly Arizona Cardinals in Phoenix 28-13 thanks to the defense returning to form and keeping their playoff hopes alive at least for another week.  The score may have read 28-13 but it sure didn’t feel like a dominant victory by any means.  The offense continued its season...

Why I Hate College Football

It’s that time of year again!  No, I’m not talking about the holiday season or the rapidly approaching end to the NFL regular season I am talking about the annual dead period of no college football (unless you count the Army/Navy game)  until ‘Bowl season’ begins.  Starting December 15th there will be 35 Bowl games...

The Bears' Defense Is Now A Cause For Concern

In this city we are used to the Bears’ defense being the offense of the team.  Creating turnovers, scoring plays and leaving opposing quarterbacks battered and bruised.  These last few games have shown us a different side of the defense we haven’t seen very often.  They look bad.  Not just bad, but old.  Two of...
