Happy Friday, shop divas! Preseason football is officially over, case which means the real games can finally begin. Last night the Bears lost their preseason finale at home against the Cleveland Browns. The third and fourth string hopefuls played their hearts out as they try to snag those last few coveted spots on the Bears 53-man final roster announced tomorrow.
News broke this morning that struggling left tackle, J’Marcus Webb was waved by the Bears, along with third string hopeful QB Jordan Palmer. Webb took to Twitter to make the official announcement:

After taking a 4-day leave from practice and Thursday night’s preseason game due to ‘personal issues’ and his ongoing hip injury, Brandon Marshall responded to questions about injuries via Twitter.

Kyle Long who is expected to start next week at guard as a rookie, took on some additional responsibilities this week and picked up a new puppy. He posted a picture of his new pup on Instagram. “Haven’t named him”.

This week a few of our favorite Blackhawks debuted the new USA Olympic hockey jerseys, and let’s just say some of the pictures were not the most flattering these guys have taken. Kaner looks absolutely thrilled in this one. “Patrick Kane dons the new USA Hockey Olympic jersey. #Blackhawks”

He even took the time to take Lord Stanley fishing. It looks like the Cup brought him a little bit of luck.
