SM Roundup: Deng Says Goodbye, Jeffery is a Pro Bowler, and Amanda Bickell Defends Her Man

Happy Tuesday, click divas! It was another week of highs and lows in Chicago, remedy and of course, we’re not just referring to the end of #Chiberia.

Last Monday, Chicago said goodbye to 10-year veteran Bulls forward Luol Deng and the trade is still getting a lot of response on social media. After the controversial trade was finalized Deng posted this picture to say goodbye. “You will hear a lot of can’t and a lot of won’t, but you give it everything you can because you believe in yourself and your teammates. You push yourself with your heart, mind and soul, and smile every night knowing you put love and passion into it. Thank you Chicago.”

On Wednesday, White Sox legend Frank Thomas, a.k.a the “Big Hurt” was elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The White Sox Instagramed this picture after the announcement was made. “We can’t pick just one favorite @TheBigHurt_35 moment. Share your Frank Thomas memories with us on Instagram using #ThanksFrank”


Other positive news this past week included the announcement of Bears WR Alshon Jeffery to this year’s Pro Bowl. Jeffery will replace Lions WR Calvin Johnson who is injured.  “The NFL announced that @alshonjeffery will join #Bears teammates @btm15 and Matt Forte at the Pro Bowl in 2 weeks. Congratulations Alshon!”



Speaking of keeping up in the offseason, Brandon Marshall posted this telling picture to prove that he isn’t taking any time off. “No time to fade black. @fitspeedap I’m home”




Carlos Boozer finally did some posting this week and the wait was worth it. “Stay Positive Through All The BullSh%# Cause There Are Better Days Ahead!!! #believe #faith #strive2bebetter #cliq #holdat”




We can always count on Henry Melton to keep us entertained on social media. Melton shared this oldie but goodie that we just love seeing men share as well. Henry, it looks like we agree on this one!





Kyle Long took a much needed break and headed out of town right in time for the Polar Vortex. From his post, it looks like our favorite rookie guard headed west to California. “Manhattan Beach”




Tim Jennings posted this picture during the Colts and Patriots game on Saturday.  Check out the slick console and wallpaper. “Wish it was us but I guess it’s more fuel to the fire!!!! #motivation #gottagetit”

During their time off, our favorite Bears couple Martellus and Siggi Bennett headed to Seattle to support Martellus’ older brother, Seahawks’ defensive end Michael Bennett and the Seahawks.



Moving into our WAGs Section, Siggi Bennett shared more photos this week from the couple’s trip in Seattle. “Way to go, Mike!!! Seahawks for Super Bowl 2014!!!!”




It looks like Martellus is getting some practice in his preparation on becoming a daddy this spring. Siggi posted this adorable picture of her hubby reading to their nieces. “Storytime with Uncle Marty”


Speaking of becoming parents, Elina Cassel Hjalmarsson posted this picture of her perfect bump. Also, if you haven’t checked out her blog we definitely recommend it. “New blogpost up #devote #grey #jeans #pregnant #outfit #chicago #swedish”

The Bears and their wives are packing up for the winter and heading off to much warmer places and we can’t say we blame them. Would you stick around and watch the NFL Playoffs from a frozen Chicago? Neither would we.

Michi Marshall clearly isn’t familiar with the term ‘traveling light’, just check out all of these bags she brought with her down south for the winter in the Instagram shot that Brandon posted.

Lastly, Amanda Bickell got into a Twitter argument this week while defending her man. Take a look:

Go get ‘em, Amanda.

That’s all we have for you this week divas! Have a wonderful week and we will see you back here next Monday!
