We have covered this from every different angle here, but the issue of whether Ben Gordon was the kind of player Bulls fans want on their team won’t truly be answered until we see how they look this fall without him. In the meantime, for all you doubters, here’s a little farewell video montage to [...]

With Bears Camp opening this weekend, I thought this would be a good time to let you all in on a new website starting up dedicated solely to Jay Cutler and his off- and on-field shenanigans (hopefully winning shenanigans). The site is called “Jay Cutler Superstar” and is written by one of the great Chicago [...]
Bad news for Chicago that you’ve obviously heard: no Brett Favre lobbing interceptions this season. Saw this hilarious shirt today and while I’m sure it’s not brand new, I had to share it. h/t: Maize n’ Brew
For two days the Big Ten football coaches and three players from each team gather in Chicago for Big Ten Media Days. From what I could tell, this year’s event was pretty bland (are they ever exciting?), but I guess that’s what you get when Lane Kiffin doesn’t coach in your conference. So what did [...]
Many will blame Mark Buehrle’s perfect streak coming to an end, the five earned runs he gave up in the sixth and seventh innings, and the White Sox 5-3 loss to the Twins on Tuesday night on the most recent Sports Illustrated cover. The SI cover curse or jinx is well documented. SI itself, ran [...]
On Tuesday afternoon the White Sox laid claim to the title of “The Most Racist Organization in Baseball” when they traded the extremely caucasian Brian Anderson. This was clearly a move made with the overwhelming support of Ozzie Guillen (Venezuela) and Kenny Williams (Berkeley, CA). In a closely related move designed to cement the White Sox [...]
A great combination of two of the funniest, yet stupidest things on the planet: Shaq and professional wrestling. Enjoy: This post is dedicated to Weiny and the return of 40s on a pole Raw. h/t: BDL
I’m taking the bar exam today and tomorrow, so I’m not exactly in the cheeriest mood. Which is why it was nice to wake up to an extra-inning walk-off win for the Cubbies this morning. Here’s the video. “Deep to center for Soriaaaano….GOOONNNEEE!!!” It feels good to be in first place.
Derrick Rose is apparently shooting between 500-1000 jumpers a day, 6 days a week. On top of that, he is supposedly working on his 3-point range as well. Good for the Bulls, bad for everyone else. [By The Horns] I love the WWE. There, I said it. Here is a list of the top ten [...]
I spotted this during Friday night’s second leg of the double-header and had to find a picture. The guys over at Detroit4lyfe were all over it. Sox will try to avoid the sweep tonight at 7:05 CT on ESPN, where Joe Morgan will be dropping the knowledge as always. **Update: No Joe Morgan, no knowledge.
The White Sox won’t get much time to bask in the glory of Mark Buehrle’s perfect game, as they have an afternoon date with the Detroit Tigers. The upcoming four game series is as big as they get in July. The Sox and Tigers are tied for the AL Central lead and won’t meet again [...]
We all have heard at some point that John F. Kennedy had an assistant named Lincoln and Abraham Lincoln had an assistant named Kennedy. But yesterday, Comcast Sportsnet stumbled upon an even eerier set of similarities from much more recent events. The Comcast crew came up with a list of similarities between Mark Buehrle’s no-hitter [...]
As the Boozer-to-Chicago rumors were heating up a couple weeks ago, word had it that Hinrich had been telling his friends that he was sure he was being traded. There were no reports as to what led him to this belief, beyond speculation and trade rumors in the media and blogosphere. Today, however, Kirk has [...]
You’ve probably already heard about Mark Buerhle’s perfect game, but did anyone happen to check ESPN sometime around the 7th inning? Let’s just say their math didn’t quite add up. According to this screenshot sent to me by South Side Sheik, Buerhle had retired 23 men and had only 6 outs to go. Hmmm, A [...]
Mark Buehrle tossed a perfect game today against the Tampa Bay Rays, making it the first gem since Randy Johnson’s in 2003 and the 17th ever…or 18th, I don’t know. Anyway, quite the accomplishment from the lefty after throwing a no-no a couple of years back that was damn close to a perfect game as [...]
