CM Punk owes it to Chicago at WWE Payback

CM Punk owes it to Chicago at WWE Payback
He may be the “Best in the World,” but right now, Phil Brooks isn’t showing it. Brooks, better known in the WWE (damn World Wildlife Fund) as CM Punk, has been in hiding since January’s Royal Rumble. While I respect his decision to walk away, Punk owes the fans that made him famous one last... Read more »

NBC's Christin Cooper True Snow Snob with USA's Bode Miller

NBC's Christin Cooper True Snow Snob with USA's Bode Miller
NBC, the National Broadcasting Company, a station of integrity, and high quality sports coverage. But the interview NBC’s Christin Cooper conducted with Bode Miller after his bronze medal winning run was far from that. This was a Fox-esque interview. It was an all-out attack with one goal in mind, to make the man cry. Not... Read more »

Launching Lovie Smith Bears Emery’s Biggest Mistake

Launching Lovie Smith Bears Emery’s Biggest Mistake
Just one year ago today, from 670 the Score to US99, people were yelling “Fire Lovie!” Tired of his bend but not break defense, his mild manor side line antics, his lack of a “Chicago mustache;” Bears fans wanted him launched.

White Sox Should Explore Cardinals David Freese

White Sox Should Explore Cardinals David Freese
With the exciting news Tuesday of the signing of Jose Dariel Abreu, the Sox have a cornerstone for one of the hard to find corner positions. But the key word is “one.” In 2013, the Sox shuffled in and out different bodies at third base, never quite finding the right person. They need a young... Read more »

Chicago Bulls should roll dice on DeMarcus Cousins

Chicago Bulls should roll dice on DeMarcus Cousins
While the Bulls may have the “heart of a champion,” they don’t have the talent of a champion.  This was evident in their matchup with the defending champion Miami Heat.  Even with a healthy D-Rose, the Bulls don’t have what it takes to defeat the Heat in a seven game series.  What the team needs...

More WNBA draft coverage, less Chicago White Sox Baseball

More WNBA draft coverage, less Chicago White Sox Baseball
The WNBA is a dying product here in the US.  Stadiums are empty, ratings are terrible, and 95% of the public couldn’t even name a WNBA team, let alone a player.  They have had players come and go who were supposed to bring the game to new heights, but have been unsuccessful.  I’ve got a...

Derrick Rose nearing “hate” level with Chicago sports fans?
If you were to ask a Chicago sports fan who’s on their Mt Rushmore of hated Chicago athletes, the most common responses would include Jay Cutler, Carlos Boozer and Alfonso Soriano.  All three players entered this city with great promise and “love” from the fans, but currently walk around with a negative connotation.  If Derrick...

If LeBron James is soft, what is Derrick Rose?

If LeBron James is soft, what is Derrick Rose?
Just two years ago, the Heat met the Bulls in the Eastern Conference finals for a chance to go to the NBA finals.  The series featured the marquee matchup of the Bulls Derrick Rose; the no nonsense hard worker who would do anything to win vs. the Heat’s LeBron James; the ultra-talented, but “soft” superstar. ...

What’s Slow…My Grandma and Manti Te’o

What’s Slow…My Grandma and Manti Te’o
What’s slow…..My Grandma’s slow, and so is Manti Te’o.  While the stocky kid from the AT&T commercial may be correct, I would like to see her race Manti.  All kidding aside, this past weekend’s combine proved one thing, Te’o has below average speed.  Standing at 6’1 with a 40 time of 4.82 seconds, Te’o went...
