What I'd Tell My Dad If I Had An Hour

What I'd Tell My Dad If I Had An Hour
When I saw this picture or meme or whatever you might call this thing-a-ma-bob on Facebook a while back, my mind raced in a million different directions. I considered hanging with a lot of people. Who wouldn’t want to pick the brain of someone from the past or quiz someone still around about what makes... Read more »

Oprah Armstrong Interview: Upstaged by George Glass' Grandaughter

Oprah Armstrong Interview: Upstaged by George Glass' Grandaughter
Hold on to your goddamn hat cause this shit is starting to get really, really, really real. Can you for one minute wrap your head around the steam coming out of the Harpo Executive offices this morning?  Can you even fathom the pounds of sweet potato fries consumed by one “comfort eater” last night? Let’s... Read more »

ESPN Should Have Issued A Musburger Apology Like This
The 2013 “I-AM-SO-SORRY-PALOOZA” kicked off pretty early this year. ESPN just issued an apology. On behalf of Brent Musburger.

Casinos Will Not Tarnish Illinois' Reputation...It Has Been In The Crapper For Years

The City of Big Shoulders also offers athletes with danglers the size of coconuts...and even bigger egos.  Nothing yells  "Illinois-brings-over-paid-screaming-brats-to-the-arrogance-table" more than a temper tantrum thrown courtesy of Big Z.

Yesterday he took to the podium with a four-hundred-page bill (no doubt splattered with grease from whatever free lunch he scored the day before) and a message.

Taking My Show On The Road

In a nutshell, local authors take a turn describing a day within a year in 365 words.  The project reads like a diary of love letters to Chicago. Such a task of reporting about a day in three-hundred and sixty five words is daunting.  Especially if you like to... Read more »

Chicago Bears Offer Refunds for Everything But The Disappointment

Chicago Bears Offer Refunds for Everything But The Disappointment
How many members of Bears’ upper management does it take to determine a field unplayable? Apparently about twenty. And, of course, one Lovie ”that’s a gooood question” Smith. He assessed the damage Friday afternoon while sporting a backpack (what the hell does he carry in that thing??) and a clueless look on his face (sadly, even more oblivious than... Read more »

Chicago Bulls: The Teamwork Engine That Could

ESPN.com Illustration I am hoping there is a tavern in heaven, there has just got to be, right?  And, I am even more convinced last night the big screen was tuned into the Cubs (even the angels and saints are suckers for the lovable losers) game as St. Armand served up an extra dry beefeaters on the rocks to...
