Almost a decade ago, the Big Ten was run off the road by a big-ass 4×4 with a huge Confederate flag flying off of it, an “American by Birth, Southern By The Grace of God” bumper sticker and some dirty jorts in the glove box.  They were shot in the face and left for dead in a ditch.  People still talked about them, but not in a way that expressed that they would ever pull through that incident.

Newest Cub, Jon Lester

It’s been a long time since I last spoke to you.  So much has happened in Chicago sports.  Here’s a look at the busy and unpredictable Chicago sports landscape.

Blackhawks keep winning

Blackhawks keep winning

Blackhawks:  They just keep doing what they do best, win.  They lost their goalie Corey Crawford after an accident at a concert, but didn’t skip a beat.  Patrick Sharp returned to the ice and their winning ways have continued.  Right now, this organization is a blue print for the other teams in the city.

Bears vs. Vikings

I should have titled this post, “Is it even worth watching” because let’s be honest, the Bears haven’t given Chicago much to enjoy this football season.  The Bears are now stuck with a 3-6 record and over 100 points have been scored on them in the last 2 games.
