With the official start of free agency just two days away, Bulls fans are increasingly licking their chops at the notion of NBA superstar Lebron James being added to the team. While there is obviously no certainty of anything joyous happening, buzz around the league seems to be pointing to Chicago as Lebron’s landing point.... Read more »

The Chicago Cubs 2010 June/July To-Do List

The Chicago Cubs 2010 June/July To-Do List
I demand baseball that I want to watch. The Cubs are 31-40 and 4-6 during the last ten games. Blah blah blah… more of the same. Since Lou is out of answers and has done everything that he can do, I decided to make the upcoming month and a half a lot easier on owner Tom... Read more »

Chicago Blackhawks Set to Trade Byfuglien, Eager, Sopel
Well, I suppose the official party is over now that the current Hawk roster is no longer full of its 2009-10 Stanley Cup Champion players. However, the unofficial party shall continue as the Cup travels this summer and through to this fall when the Hawks hoist their banner at the first home game of the... Read more »

World Cup Soccer Offends Sports Sensibilities

First, I feel that I must begin by stating that I honor soccer fans here for seemingly understanding, or at least being open to the reasons why, soccer is not entirely popular in the US.

NHL Stanley Cup Finals: One More Win Needed for the Blackhawks to Claim the Stanley Cup

Finally the Blackhawks played like the team we know they are. Sunday night’s first period was probably the best all-around period the Hawks have played in the playoffs, and it couldn’t have come fast enough. The 3-0 lead the Hawks captured in the first carried them for the rest of the game, although the Flyers... Read more »

Stanley Cup Finals, Game 5; Desperation Needs to be Blackhawks' Best Friend

Okay, so game four = not that great. While I am not big on game-to-game momentum, the third period of Friday night’s loss surely had to help the Hawks. If they had lost 4-1, I just see that kind of a win giving Philadelphia too much confidence. Although they still won the game, once again... Read more »

Blackhawks vs Flyers in Game 4 of Stanley Cup Finals- Tomorrow Night

So, I had to wait 24 hours before responding to game three. Part of this was due to mild depression, while the rest of the blame must go to beer, whiskey, and Taco Bell… all of which were closely tied to the primary cause: depression.
