Derrick Rose nearing “hate” level with Chicago sports fans?

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?

    I'm what they call a Chicago sports junkie. I'm a season ticket holder for the Northwestern Wildcats and Chicago Bears and go to a ton of games at Wrigley, US Cellular, and the United Center. I live in suburban Elmhurst with my beautiful wife who also love sports. Unfortunately for me, she is a Cowboys fan (still working on changing that). Even though her allegiance is to the Cowboys, she too loves all of the Chicago teams. We even had Staley Da Bear at our wedding, and let me tell you, Da Bear can play the drums. There isn't a Chicago game that either of us miss! I graduated from Elmhurst College and was a four year starting pitcher for the squad. Baseball is what I know and what I love. Although my playing days are behind me, I still coach both at the college level (Elmhurst College) and legion level (Gurnee Riverdogs).
