It is a messy situation, and Tiger has basically refused to dispel the wild speculation about what really happened. Here are the basic facts we do know: Early Friday morning Woods crashed his car into a fire hydrant [...]

I was just sitting around thinking, “Hey, what could make this Bears season even worse?” With the poor play on both sides of the ball, an embattled stubborn coach being stabbed in the back by ownership, and a bleak future with the Bears having dealt their 1st and 2nd round picks for next season, there [...]
Well, so much for discretion and class. As I discussed last week when management went behind Angelo and Lovie’s back to test the waters on Mike Shanahan to coach the Bears, this is a backhanded way of getting a new coach. As much as we all think and know that Lovie’s day is done, you [...]
Antoine Walker, former NBA player and Chicago high school hoops legend, has fallen on some hard times. Although he made millions during his playing career, he has had all kinds of financial problems ranging from being robbed to owing millions in gambling debts. Well the news for Antoine is about to get a lot worse. [...]
This video might be painful for most of us, since it is from Cutler’s 5 pick game against the 49ers. I don’t remember seeing all these clips during the live broadcast of the game, but Jay Cutler Superstar found this video on youtube so here it is for all of you. Personally I am impressed [...]
Everyone is in full on panic mode about the Bulls, and on some level that is understandable. It’s never fun to watch your team lose 4 straight. The problem is that some combination of raised expectations, a lack of understanding about the Bulls schedule, poor shooting, and of course Rose’s bum ankle (or confidence, but [...]
Sammy Sosa has been popping up in the news a lot lately, and it hasn’t been pretty. I mean physically it definitely wasn’t pretty with his little skin-whitening stunt, but also metaphorically its been a tough run for the Dominican Dracula. (That is his new nickname in my book. It’s a great nickname, it references [...]
As I prepare to go play football in our family’s annual Turkey Bowl, I have a chance to sit back and really think about what I have to be thankful for. As you all know, the country has gone through some very difficult times this year. If you have a job at all, you are [...]
This video is hypnotizing. What’s crazy about it is the bears seem to actually grasp the rules of hockey. I’m sure PETA would not be thrilled with this, but I love it. Enjoy!
To all those screaming for Lovie Smith’s head (I’m one of them), there is some good news out of Halas Hall. Or at least good rumors. According to Hub Arkush at 670 The Score, the Bears are putting out feelers for a new head coach: Someone in the Bears’ organization at a level above general [...]
Chris Kramer is the defensive specialist on Purdue and was the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year in the 2007-2008 season. Although we here at NQTC all know he is no Chester Frazier, Kramer is still a force to be reckoned with. And you have to love a guy who will literally swim up [...]
Well here’s something you don’t see everyday. Back in 1926, after a no-show by the “Rialtos”, a local Jewish team filled in against a team fielded by the Ku Klux Klan. According to the September 1, 1926 edition of the Washington Post: Although reports of the outcome from that game are sketchy at best, it [...]
Just kidding, Greg Oden isn’t 60, but he sure looks like it, doesn’t he? Anyways, even though the Bulls lost (badly), these posterizations of Oden by Noah and Rose were awesome. Enjoy.
I will be running a new feature each week. What will happen is I will pick two random games from any sport and pick the winner. Feel free to make your own picks at this online sports betting site and then compare your results with mine. I will be keeping track of my record, so [...]
Despite the three most recent blowout losses at the hands of the Lakers, Nuggets, and Trailblazers, there is some good news coming from the Bulls camp. James Johnson will focus on playing small forward for the foreseeable future, rather than also attempting to digest the playbook chapters on Power Forward, Shooting Guard, and Point Forward. [...]
