Calm Down, Bulls Fans– It’s Just One Game

Calm Down, Bulls Fans– It’s Just One Game

Let’s just set the record straight: I’m what you may call a “casual” admirer of basketball. Not to be confused with a fair-weather fan, mind you: I’ve always rooted for one team, and one team only. Bandwagoner I am not. Just, not a die-hard for the sport as a whole. Keep in mind, I grew up in the 90’s; in Chicago. I was 14 years old when Michael Jordan and Co won a record 71 games….

BearDown: The Jay Cutler Conundrum

BearDown: The Jay Cutler Conundrum

First off, let me begin by stating, neigh, shouting: I am not a Jay Cutler hater. I think he’s one tough bastard. He’s got one hell of an arm. And, I love the swagger & attitude he brings to the league. That being the case, our Chicago Bears have come to a crossroad. Cutler’s lucrative contract with the club will conclude following the 2013 season. I think every Bears fan old & young realizes this by now. Yet, the…

Someone’s got some plans…. (*sideyes Rick Hahn*) The likely candidate for 1B or DH, the 6’3″, 250LB righty…

White Sox: Konerko– Will He Stay or Will He Go?

Veteran White Sox captain Paul Konerko has a tough decision to face this offseason: continue his career, potentially with another team, or retire from baseball altogether. Should Konerko decide to play in 2014, there is the possibility that the White Sox would pass on retaining “the face of the franchise” for what would be his 18th and final MLB season (15 of those being with the Sox). But, don’t expect a decision before next week,…

White Sox: Ventura Wants to Keep Going Despite Miserable Year

White Sox: Ventura Wants to Keep Going Despite Miserable Year

…but, the real question is: do we want him to?? As a player, I loved Robin Ventura. His awkward stance in the box. His ability to hit grand slams just at the right moment. His tenacity on the field. But, as a manager…I’m just not sold. As of Friday, the White Sox had lost 93 games, a number that may reach above 100 before this atrocious season is in the books. Ventura’s current contract expires…
