Farewell Julius Peppers and Why I Think I Like You - No Football Involved

The Chicago Bears just gave the veteran defensive end Julius Peppers the ax. However, it was the friendly ax…thank you for all you’ve done for the Bears …however you’re getting too old (34)…there’s the money issue…and you haven’t been that “good in the sack” department (football reference only). Sigh. So it goes in the revolving... Read more »

Size Does Matter When Watching the Super Bowl: The More Inches the Better

A few weeks ago: The big TV had finally died and My Sports Guy was ecstatic. He had been campaigning for Bigger/Better/More Inches for some time now. A trip to the Mega Electronics store revealed a ridiculous amount of choices, including all levels of “smartness” i.e. built-in internet capabilities, features, bells and whistles galore. In...

Jim Harbaugh Coach for the San Francisco 49ers Loses the Game but Sees the Light: Pleated Khakis No More

Finally, a story with a happy ending (well, except for that game loss): As you might have heard, Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers football team, apparently had an obsession that was driving his wife Sarah crazy. Not drugs, booze, women, gambling or anything worthy of a sordid Enquirer headline, but nevertheless,... Read more »

It's NFL Playoff Time: Chicago Bears Fans are Singing the Blues but The Cutlers are Ecstatic

As we head into another NFL Playoff weekend, a dark, gloomy cloud hangs over the Windy City, home of the loser Bears. As everyone knows, we didn’t make it into the playoffs again – for six out of the last seven years we’ve been a no show. But who’s counting. As a result My Sports... Read more »

Fantasy Football Victory for the Grasshopper and Kim Kardashian Doesn't Even Care

Update on my fantasy football team: Mad Men. The team has completed their 2013 regular season and ta daaa…they won the League championship – alone in 1st place with a 13-1 stellar record. (Lost the first game – damn.) Note to Chicago Bears Coach Trestman: Call me anytime for pointers. Headed into the “playoffs” this... Read more »

Week 11: Diary of a Mad Fantasy Football Player - My Team "Mad Men" Takes the Lead

Yes, I am MAD…mad, crazy, insane and obsessed with Mad Men – my fantasy football team. Mad Men stands alone in the Number One slot of my NFL fantasy football league. Hallelujah, Hallelujah. First of all, let me throw this out…I know that no one cares one measly scrap about this in a world where... Read more »

Cheese Grater Hats, Wine Bras, and Plastic Totebags for Soldier Field: Must Have Football Accessories

The Cheese Grater Hat has arrived. In response to the always fashionable Cheesehead Chapeaux (a large wedge of foam cheese proudly worn on the heads of scores of Green Bay Packer fans), rival Bears fans have been spotted as Cheese GraterHeads. This visual is self explanatory and hysterical one-upmanship. Last night we were watching the... Read more »

Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari Guest Star In TV Show "The League" - Is There A Future Career Change For The Jayster?

I recently tricked My Sports Guy into watching a TV show, “The League” by telling him that it was a show about Jay Cutler. Jay Cutler and wife, Kristin Cavallari were guests stars, but it was actually a sitcom about a group of friends that play fantasy football. (My Guy is not a sitcom fan.)... Read more »

Bear Down Chicago Bears and The Emmys: Attempting to Juggle a Sunday Night Dilemma

Sunday Fun Day. Chicago is 2-0 and Bears fever for NFL Game 3 actually started the minute after last week’s win over the Minnesota Vikings. Now, at some point during the week, I realized that Da Bears have the 7:30pm Sunday night slot against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Also, at some point during the week, I... Read more »

NFL Today TV Show on CBS Inspires Me To Give Football Quiz to Partygoers With Amusingly Predictable Results

Happened to watch a snippet of the NFL Today show on CBS before the Bears game last Sunday. The Talking Heads were (or so I thought) quizzing each other on football trivia. Questions: “What city will the AFC Championship game be held in this year? And “What team will get the first pick of the... Read more »
