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...

Notre Dame’s deep pockets will take care of Manti Te’o “hoax”

Notre Dame’s deep pockets will take care of Manti Te’o “hoax”
Asking the question “is Manti Te’o guilty of lying about the existence of Lennay Kekua?” is just like asking “is O.J. Simpson guilty of killing Nicole Brown Simpson?” Te’o has been caught in a web of lies, but just like Simpson, fame and fortune will make his “error” disappear. By no means am I comparing...

If he doesn’t want to be part of us, get rid of him… He’s a snake…This is what’s coming out of the mouths of panicking Notre Dame fans after news broke Thursday that Brian Kelly was interested in the Philadelphia Eagles head coaching vacancy.  To all those people panicking, take a step back and relax. ...

Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o the modern day Mike Singletary

Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o the modern day Mike Singletary
Intense eyes, heart and soul of the defense, coach on the field; these were all phrases used in tonight’s National Championship to describe Notre Dame standout middle linebacker Manti Te’o.  Does this sound familiar Bears fans?  Watching Te’o play in tonight’s National Championship should remind everyone of Mike Singletary, a very talented but overrated player. Not... Read more »

Five reasons why Notre Dame will defeat Alabama for the National Championship

Five reasons why Notre Dame will defeat Alabama for the National Championship
If you ask people in the South, there is the SEC, and the rest of college football.  If you don’t play in the SEC, you aren’t a “real” college football team.  Before the National Championship was determined, Vegas had Notre Dame as underdogs against four possible SEC teams (Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Texas A&M).  Currently,...

    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).
