SM Roundup: Bulls in Brazil, athletes show AP support, and PJ Rose turns one

Happy Monday, and divas! What a wonderful time of the year it is with the Bears, sildenafil the Blackhawks and the Bulls all in full swing. Throw in the MLB Playoffs and College Football, and one could argue it’s the best time of the year for sports lovers like us.

Our favorite Chicago athletes took to social media this past week to praise, boast and bitch about the game and about life in general. As we do every week, we’ve rounded up the best of these posts so you don’t have to spend more time that usual combing through social media.

On Thursday night our Bears ended their losing streak and defeated the winless New York Giants. “The #Bears defeat the Giants 27-21 at Soldier Field to move to 4-2 on the season.”



Brandon Marshall made a shout out to his fellow teammate and former NY Giant, Martellus Bennett who had another productive game. “Crazy NYC let him go. Oh well Our win. @martysaurusrex #beardown #trailblazers”

Apparently our former HAM, Kyle Long had some problems getting to Soldier Field on before the game.


It was announced over the weekend that Brandon Marshall will indeed be fined $5,250 by the NFL for wearing his now infamous lime green shoes as a way to advocate for Mental Health Awareness Week. Marshall has said he will match the fine to the Brandon Marshall Foundation.

Desmond Clark raised a very good question regarding Marshall’s decision to wear the shoes in support of a cause, one that is not a current NFL-affiliated partner.  “#limegreen #TNF”


Henry Melton celebrated his 27th birthday this week as he sits the season out with his torn ACL. He took the time to post this photo collage on Instagram. “Man time flys bday #27… these aren’t getting exciting anymore but I’m def gonna be in my bday suit allll day watch out! lol #florida #surgery #DrAndrews”



Michi and Brandon Marshall were lucky enough to take over the Transformers 4 set this week where they ran into star Mark Wahlberg. The couple posed with Optimus Prime. “#Transformers4”





“On the set of Transformers4 with family and @markwahlberg”




This past weekend the Bulls defeated the Washington Wizards on Saturday night in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – the first NBA preseason game to be played in Brazil. The Bulls spent a few days in Brazil enjoying the NBA-rich culture and amazing scenery. Carlos Boozer posted this picture that captures Rio’s incredible backdrop.












By now, everyone has heard about the Adrian Peterson tragedy. Some of our Bears took their thoughts to Twitter to share their support with AP.

This week’s WAG section is bigger than ever. Kristin Cavallari rode in style to the Thursday night game. “This is how u get to a game in style. Crazy eyes necessary. #welookpossessed @sbiegs”




Mrs. Marshall helped her hubby support Mental Health Awareness Week. Hair Done @timehairgallery #limegreen still going strong now… Off to next appointment then Class #mentalhealthawareness #breakingstigma everywhere I go #nailgating #fanicure #beardown”



Siggi Bennett was able to meet up with old friends from their Giants days. “Happy I got to watch the fame with my Lady Giant @rosebud77 forever friends”




Siggi keeps us entertained all week long with her hilarious and insightful posts. On Saturday, the mother-to-be posted this picture of Martellus and Matt Forte in what looks like a double date. “Our sweet hubbies took us out for dinner @martysaurusrex @mforte22 @ddforte789”



Earl Bennett’s wife usually stays pretty quiet, but she posted this picture of her hubby in the paper this week. “So proud of him!!! @earlbennett”




The biggest WAG shock of the week was Derrick Rose’s girlfriend. Mieka Reese posted pictures all week long from the couple’s son’s birthday party. PJ Rose turned one this week and the monster celebration looked amazing. “It’s my baby Monster Birthday Bash!!”



While baby PJ and mom Mieka dressed as monsters, Derrick Rose dressed-up as Willie from Duck Dynasty… Interesting choice Derrick. “Pj & the Guys @1_marco_1 @biglanx”


That’s all the social media we have for you this week, divas! Have a great week and we’ll see you back here next Monday!
