(CBS) You could analyze to death last night’s titanic preseason tussle between the Bears and that Pop Warner team from San Diego but in the end, Jay Cutler gave me no reason to think a single thing has changed since last season. Let’s see, Cutler completed four passes, all to Brandon Marshall. He fumbled and also threw a needless interception. Like I said – nothing has changed.

******************

Robin Ventura gave Paul konerko Wednesday off calling it a “spa day.” What are the chances of your boss giving you a “spa day?” What are the chances your boss pays for it, too?

******************
After the Sox had 14 singles but left 15 men on base in their series finale against the Tigers, a Sox beat writer mentioned how Robin Ventura lamented a turnaround from relying too much on home runs in 2012.  If only his team relied on home runs this season. It might have saved this franchise the embarrassment of residing in the A.L. Central basement.

******************

Victor Conte, he of the infamous Balco chapter in baseball, said MLB’s drug program is inept and at least 50 percent of the players are using PEDs. Do you believe him? Could you find a hard time not to?

******************

The Bears are worth a tidy $1.25 billion by Forbes, good for eighth in the leauge. The Dallas Cowboys are first at $2.3 billion after building that monstrosity of a stadium. Gosh, I wish that monstrosity of a stadium was here rather than that eyesore on the lakefront.

******************

The Fridge is still plugged in. A tweet claiming William “The Refrigerator” Perry had died was false. He has suffered from Guillain-Barre syndrome, which affects the nervous system but his brother says the Fridge is fine. The image of him bull dozing his way to a touchdown against the Packers back in 1985 will forever be etched in the memory of any sports fan here.

******************

The Cubs get shut out four out of five games at Wrigley field and all I can hear ringing in my ear is Harry Caray shouting “LETS GET SOME RUNS!”

******************

Funny isn’t it how Alfonso Soriano hit 4 homers and drove in 13 runs in consecutive games.  Maybe it’s not so funny.

******************

The Nashville Predators hate the Blackhawks. At least their owner does. Hates them so much he’s telling Hawks fans if you want to come here and see your team squash ours, you’ll have to buy tickets to another game. He won’t sell single game tickets for the three times the Hawks come to town. There are just too many of you wrecking the atmosphere. Fine, have it your way. I say the Hawks bring the Stanley Cup with them for each visit so the owner can see what he’ll never have.

******************

Former New York Yankee Shane Spencer recently did an interview with an ESPN radio station in Albany, New York claiming he took steroids adding there was no question Roger Clemens did and that it would be extremely naive to think Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera never did. Here’s the problem: it was a guy posing as Spencer. The real guy serves as a hitting and third base coach for a team in the Independent League. The real Spencer said he was outraged someone would do this, while the station called the fake interview an unfortunate situation and that it would launch an investigation. I’m wondering if the fake guy was someone pretending to be Jack Clark pretending to be Shane Spencer.

And that’s all she wrote.
