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...

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...

With Season on the Line, Lovie Needs to Put Up or Shut Up

It will be around 6:30 PM Central time on Sunday when we will learn whether the Bears have given themselves a chance at the playoffs or if they squander it with a loss to the Cardinals.  Should the Bears lose it will also be the official beginning of the “Fire Lovie Smith” campaign.  Smith has...

The Bears Are Closer to Collapse Than Contenders

Another Sunday, another Bears loss.  That is the pattern as of late and with the season rapidly winding down there aren’t many more Sundays left for mistakes.  The Bears lost to the Green Bay Packers for the second time this season and for the sixth time straight.  The Packers left Soldier Field NFC North champions...

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...

The NBA Season Is Here, But My Enthusiasm Isn't

The Bulls tip off the 2012-2013 season tonight against the Sacramento Kings and I can’t say I am all that excited.  Normally I am gung-ho for the NBA and especially the Bulls but with a season starting with no Derrick Rose, no bench mob and a whole bunch of perfectly awesome Stacey King catchphrases now...

The 'Attitude' Debate? Give Me That Any Day Over Another QB Controversy

Going a day without hearing someone talk about Jay Cutler’s attitude or demeanor is like turning on the Weather Channel and not hearing about Hurricane Sandy. It ain’t happening! The Bears are off to a 6-1 start and look to be contenders for a spot in the Super Bowl but all I have been hearing... Read more »

Why The Bears Are Super Bowl Bound

You may want to start checking for flights to New Orleans in early February.  You also might want to dust off those pairs of Zubaz pants in your attic and find a cassette player that can blare the ‘Super Bowl Shuffle’ because our Chicago Bears are heading to the Super Bowl!  You read that correctly,...

Why A-Rod Should Be A Member of the White Sox In 2013

Side note: Sorry for the long delay between posts I have been out of town for the past ten days for some well deserved R&R.  Now let’s get back to sports talk. The White Sox will most likely have a hole to fill at third base this off-season.  The Yankees may be willing to help... Read more »
