A Dialogue Between a Jordan/LeBron Comparison Enthusiast and a Rational Thinker
While horse racing fans may vigorously debate who will win the 6th race at Arlington, they rarely entertain un-ending debates about whether Secretariat could have beaten Man o’ War or Citation.

Gino's East or Giordano's? Wrigley Field or Soldier Field? Google Results Declare Winners in 20 Chicago Rivalries
We Chicagoans love to compare.  We will always  compare our city to New York, just like we’ll always debate  who serves  the best deep dish pizza and which side of town hosts the superior baseball team.

At least it ended quickly.
“You can’t truly love a team until you’ve suffered with it.” — Bill Simmons, February 25, 2011 ****** Sports fandom is pain mixed with hope, and, on occasion, a few droplets of fulfillment. Maybe that formula differs in NYC or L.A., or even Miami with their bloody two-time champion Marlins, but here in Chicago, it... Read more »

Six Great NBA All-Star Performances that Didn't Win MVP

Six Great NBA All-Star Performances that Didn't Win MVP
It is 2011 and basketball is different. Players dunk with their toes completely behind the foul line, and they bag All-Star triple doubles with 29 points instead of 14, and they collect 37 points and 14 boards at age 32.
