Happy Opening Day! Will the Cubs' 83 Wins be enough to take the Central Division?

Happy Opening Day! Will the Cubs' 83 Wins be enough to take the Central Division?
The day is finally here! We have collectively survived the worst month for sports in March (see my March Madness Rant from last year), and we have earned the best prize of all: the BEST sports month of the year. With April we can enjoy the end of two seasons as the Hawks and Bulls... Read more »

The Blackhawks WILL make the playoffs, so... Jonathan Toews for MVP?

Following a thrilling overtime win against the Red Wings in Detroit last night, the Blackhawks inched even closer to solidifying a playoff spot. The Red Wings sit as the second seed right now, a massive 11 points behind the number one Vancouver Canucks, but the Hawks have the eight seed all to themselves now, and... Read more »

The 2011 Cubs are the 2010-11 Chicago Bears

The 2011 Cubs are the 2010-11 Chicago Bears
I am not saying that the Cubs will make the playoffs. I am not claiming that the Cubs will be a winning team during the upcoming season. I am most certainly not claiming that the Cubs will lose the NL Championship to the Green Bay Packers. What I am saying is that this team can... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks: Calling all Bandwagon-Jumpers

For much of this hockey season, the Blackhawks had been disappointing: streaks of wins were immediately negated by longer losing streaks, one injured player would return to the ice during the same game that another would go down, and making the playoffs looked like a crap-shoot at best. Simply nothing was going right for the... Read more »

Tom Thibodeau Has Been The Biggest Game-Change For The Bulls

The Chicago Bulls haven’t been this successful since the Jordan years and we can owe it in large part to Tom Thibodeau.Sure you can argue that the fact that Derrick Rose has matured into a all-star and  the signing of Carlos Boozer had a bigger impact, but Thibodeau and his defensive coaching scheme is what...

How good are the Chicago Bulls?

With the All-star break approaching, and the return of Joakim Noah sitting not far-off from that, the Chicago Bulls will soon have their full roster available for coach Tom Thibodeau’s use. The team currently sits at 38-16, third best in the NBA’s Eastern Conference. With the Bulls right on the tail of the two powerhouses... Read more »

Carlos Marmol: The Devin Hester of the Chicago Cubs signs a new 3-year contract
With pitchers and cathers reporting to the Cubs’ camp in Mesa, Arizona yesterday, the long wait inbetween baseball seasons is rapidly closing. The team has been fairly active during the offseason; bringing back Kerry Wood to sure-up the bullpen, and adding former Tampa Bay teammates Matt Garza (starting pitcher) and Carlos Pena (first base) to the...

Introducing Pedro Gonzalez; a new contributor to "The Way Things Should Be"

Obviously, I am a huge Chicago fan in general, but tend to focus on the Bears, Cubs, and Hawks. Admittedly, I am not as dedicated to covering the Bulls and some of the town’s other sports or teams as I would like to be. With that in mind, I am happy to say that Pedro Gonzalez... Read more »

The Super Bowl Sucked

While I am not attempting to take anything away from the Green Bay Packers, or even their fans, I can’t help but feel like this year’s installment of the Super Bowl sucked. The game was exciting enough, with it essentially going down till the end of the game and plenty of big hits and plays,... Read more »

Chicago Bulls Trade Options at Shooting Guard

Everybody knows that the Chicago Bulls are in need of a starting two-guard, sure the Keith Bogans/Ronnie Brewer/Kyle Korver is useful, but they’re simply role-players.   The Bulls are already ½ a game behind the Miami Heat for second place in the East, and they have one of the best defenses in the league, now...
