Chicago Blackhawks- Kane practices with 3rd line; what's Quenneville got up his stache now?

During today’s practice, Coach Joel Quenneville had Patrick Kane skating on the third line with center Dave Bolland and co-winger Viktor Stalberg. Coach Q is known for adjusting his lines whenever he deems it necessary, although dropping Kane to the third line seems like an extreme idea… but is it? Honestly, I have full-confidence in...

Bears and Blackhawks- Is anyone else still hungover from the crappy Chicago sports weekend?

The Blackhawks sputtered out at the end of a demanding six-games-in-eight-days stretch, leaving Sunday’s Bears’ game against the Redskins as the one chance for sports salvation this weekend.

BAD CALLS- Which Pro League Has the Worst Officiating?

Bad calls are a part of all competitive sports. The very idea of having referees, umpires, and line judges is to maintain a fair balance so that both teams have an opportunity to compete and win the game, yet constantly fans are witnesses to horrible and potentially game-changing calls that continuously redefine sports frustration.

Bears are Sacked on Sunday; Fall to Seahawks 23-20... So what's next?

Once again the score of today’s game was overly-deceiving as the Bears seemingly lost a close game to the now 3-2 Seattle team.
