I’m still waiting for a single credible argument against widely expanded use of instant replay in baseball to get critical calls right, since the two usually offered are embarrassingly limp.
I don’t like the Bulls team we have seen lately, the one acting like undisciplined, unprofessional idiots while antagonizing officials and whining about calls.

When Bears GM Phil Emery uses a first-round pick on somebody you never even thought about, it’s because he’s been on that tip for a while, already. You know, before it was cool.
The problem is in the word still being used that immediately brings to mind deception, lies and fraud.
For one night, performance, geography, expectation and the choice of juxtaposition conspired to make something once so grand seem very small, and very far away.
Public opinion matters to the Cubs in their efforts to modernize their property and stabilize their presence in Tom Ricketts’ beloved Wrigleyville.
We asked for your submissions and you obliged. Many were predictably obtuse and pointless. Most, actually. But there were a handful worthy of thoughtful response.
Something odd must have occurred in the last nine days, because this contrition was nonexistent at Alford’s introductory press conference April 2.
Why is Derrick Rose refusing to continue his rehabilitation, per instruction from the team doctor?
He can change the team colors of his shirt and tie, but Steve Alford’s reptilian scales will always lie underneath.
Too many have forgotten exactly what Alford did in the aftermath of that incident in Iowa City on September 6, 2002.
Collins and Northwestern may be an ideal fit. It will certainly look and sound that way while it’s still all about appearances.
Despite the popularity of the clichéd, post-victory cry, nobody really “shocks the world.”
Let’s all stop the stupidity over Brian Urlacher needing to keep some kind of pristine connection to the Bears, as if the mere sight of him limping around the field in any other colors is somehow unthinkable.
The quarterback from Santa Claus, Indiana just got another Christmas morning.
The whole team-doctor arrangement is awkward to begin with.
Blackhawks President John McDonough understands the difference between history and trivia.
