Proud To Be A Huskie!

Proud To Be A Huskie!
After watching the Northern Illinois Huskies football team squeak by a solid Kent State team on Friday, it was an extra bonus to see the Huskies make the first ever BCS bowl game by a non-BCS school….basically breaking the BCS bubble. As most of the local Chicago Huskies graduates celebrated, it was sad to see... Read more »

October...Favorite Month Of The Year?

Not that many people ever have this discussion, but when it comes down to it, October is tops in my book in regards to my favorite month of the year. Why you ask? It’s full of not too hot/not too cold days, football is in full swing, Halloween ends the month, and I usually have... Read more »

2012 NFL Football is Back!

2012 NFL Football is Back!
With the Bears kicking off against the Indianapolis Colts at Noon on Sunday, it’s the first true day of the NFL season (sure the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants played last Wednesday, but it’s the first Sunday that always counts).

Peyton Manning & Wedding's Don't Mix Very Well

Peyton Manning & Wedding's Don't Mix Very Well
It’s the truth…I swear! (My apologies to Mr. Manning as I’m sure he’s very delightful in person and great at weddings) But it’s tough to find out the news that he’s out of action for at least 2-3 months now and what that does to my fantasy football team. (I know Arian Foster called out... Read more »

Day After Super Bowl XLV...Did You Actually Care About The Game?

The Super Bowl…it’s the biggest game/day of the NFL fan’s yearly calendar and for some reason I just couldn’t have cared less before/during/after the game. Were there more people out there like me? Was it because the Bears lost to the same Green Bay Packers, our sworn enemies, just two weeks ago? And as much... Read more »

Would You Eat A Bears Themed Pizza As Big As A Small Child?

My answer would obviously be yes as anyone that knows me, knows my love of both pizza and eating in general…but recently I saw a story about Donny’s Pizzeria that now makes a pizza that will feed 35-40 Bears fans to celebrate the “enormity” of the upcoming Bears/Packers NFC Championship game this Sunday. You ask,... Read more »

Go Bears,” Tweeted DeWyze, a Mount Prospect native who won “American Idol” last year. If... Read more »
