An open letter to Derrick Rose's Groin

  Dear This Thing, So look, I’m not what one would call a “Doctor”….or a “somewhat knowledgeable person when it comes to sports medicine, anatomy or physiology” , but…can you Mr. Groin, get your shit together…STAT? (That’s a “white coat” term for ASAP) I just can’t take this anymore. Sure, record wise the Bulls have... Read more »

Joe Cowley has become the new Jay Mariotti

Joe Cowley has become the new Jay Mariotti
When Jay Mariotti abruptly left the Chicago Sun-Times in 2008, it left readers who enjoy sensationalistic, pointlessly provocative commentary, with a painful void; sure these people probably had friends who were pot stirrers, who immaturely sought attention through being mindlessly contrarian, but it just wouldn’t be the same. Who in Chicago would call us stupid?... Read more »

Well Chicago baseball fan, let's look on the bright side...(e.g. You're not dead)

Whether you’re a Sox or Cubs fan, this baseball season has been nothing short of insufferable. But hey if you’re reading this, you at least own or have access to a computer….with internet access no less! My guess is that if you have that luxury, you probably have running water too. Imagine having to endure... Read more »

How historically bad has Adam Dunn been?

How historically bad has Adam Dunn been?
Adam Dunn has been the focus of scrutiny from White Sox fans this past season for his incredible lack of production.  While watching Dunn miss an outside curveball this past weekend by nearly a foot, a thought came across my mind.   I know Adam Dunn has been bad, but just how bad has he been?  ...

Now that Jim Hendry, Who Doesn’t Bat/Pitch/Field/Play in September/October is Gone, Let the Hunt for a New Scapegoat Begin

Now that Jim Hendry, Who Doesn’t Bat/Pitch/Field/Play in September/October is Gone, Let the Hunt for a New Scapegoat Begin
The dismissal of Jim Hendry as General Manager came as a shock to few, and has been greeted with collective jubilation from Cub’s Nation.  For Cubs fans, Jim had become the latest in a long line of scapegoats, the in the moment embodiment of over a century of frustration. Curses aren’t as easy to attack, to... Read more »

The White Sox are the Weakest Kid on the Block

The 2011 White Sox went “All In” pre-flop, and lets just put it this way-post flop, their hand isn’t looking too good. We all know what Adam Dunn isn’t doing-hitting,  or if you’re one of those people who prefers positive language,  what he is doing-striking out, at a historic rate in fact. As it stands, Adam...

The Chicago Cubs are Ketchup, and other Reasons I'm a White Sox Fan

The Chicago Cubs are Ketchup, and other Reasons I'm a White Sox Fan
In anticipation of this weekend’s second leg of the biannual “Crosstown  BP South Side vs. North Side Bad vs. Worse…Cup…Classic”, I thought hey, why not  identify my reasons for being a Sox fan, by lazily resorting to illogical metaphors, loose associations, and shameless stereotypes?  Yep, no way this has been done before.  I’m a Sox...

Kenny Williams Should Not Be Immune To Scrutiny

Kenny Williams Should Not Be Immune To Scrutiny
It is time to start criticizing both General Manager’s in town.  Before you bite my head off, White Sox fans, hear me out.  The grace period for a World Series should be over.  It has been 6 years since the Chicago White Sox have won the World Series.  Let’s look past that for now. I... Read more »

Who the Navy Seal 6 Team Should Get Next

Who the Navy Seal 6 Team Should Get Next
Look, I’m not attempting to equate any of the following people with Osama Bin Laden, nor am I suggesting they be shot as they attempt to sleep with their spouse; I simply feel they should be stopped.  And who better to employ than the  Navy Seal 6 Team, who has proven more than capable of...

Examples of Tyler Hansbrough Making me Mad in the 1st Quarter, and White Sox

Examples of Tyler Hansbrough Making me Mad in the 1st Quarter, and White Sox
Jake Peavy is never going to be that Jake Peavy again. I, and White Sox fans everywhere, will be better off if we just accept it. Tonight in Birmingham, Jake’s latest rehab start lasted just 15 pitches, after experiencing what the Sox are vaguely labeling as discomfort. Peavy will be reevaluated tomorrow, but I think...
