However, they also do need to look at viable back-up options at the quarterback position. Jay Cutler will be the most well paid player in the NFL next season at $22.5 million. So it follows that who’s behind him is very cheap...

Blues-Blackhawks: Meet me in St. LouBARF

The Chicago Blackhawks start their Stanley Cup Championship defense against America’s Sweethearts: the St. Louis Blues.  The drive down I-55 is enough to hate this match-up, but the (lack of) respect shown by the Blues for opponents is unmatched in the NHL, and Chicago is aware of that. Patrick Kane was injured in a 4-0 win over the Bloos (that’s spelled correctly) in March...

Union debate: it’s not Colter vs Fitz, or NU vs NU, it’s labor vs NCAA

You don’t have to be pro NU and at the same time anti-Kain Colter. Likewise with Pat Fitzgerald. You don’t have to pick Fitz or Colter. Or Colter, but not NU. Or NU Athletic Director Jim Phillips, and then be against Kain. Or be with NU but against the movement for change and social justice.  There is room for nuance; there are grey areas to stand in. Of course, the overwhelming...

So obviously Daytona is the most famous track, with Talladega being the second most popular. (Because of the Will Ferrell movie of course) I’m not counting the Brickyard because that speedway is known for IndyCar first and foremost...

Milwaukee Bucks to “win” tanking war; “clinch” lottery odds Monday

  Ah memories of Milwaukee Bucks Media Day…when I heard Luke Ridnour tell us, with a straight face no less, “I can’t wait to get back into the playoffs and do some damage!” It was almost as unintentionally funny, if not more so than the DePaul basketball preseason luncheon a few days before. There, I heard Oliver Purnell say, again not joking, “our goal is to make the...
