David Schuster

I have been covering the local sports scene for the last 30 years and in that time have seen more games and events then anybody. I’ve been privileged to have covered 9 local championships (6 by the Bulls, and one each by the Bears, White Sox & Blackhawks). I have also covered 3 no hitters and one perfect game and had the honor of covering the best basketball player ever on a daily basis. Not only do I love reporting on sports but I equally enjoy participating (Basketball, Baseball, Golf, Tennis…etc.) You name it and I love it. I’m a huge movie goer who also likes to travel and I own a piece of a local minor league baseball team as well as a piece of a local restaurant.

Schuster: Rose Interview Insulted Local Reporters

Say what you want about Tuesday’s story about Derrick Rose potentially not playing this season (and I don’t believe that for a moment) but the part that upset me is that Rose granted an interview to a reporter from the national media.

Schuster: Bullpen Will Keep White Sox In Contention

There’s an adage in baseball that you’re only as good as your bullpen. If that’s the case, then the White Sox have a chance to prove a lot of the so called experts wrong.

Rudy Jaramillo

Schuster: The Old Difference Of Philosophy Reasoning For A Firing

If you didn’t know any better, you would have thought you were at Rudy Jaramillo’s press conference to announce a contract extension instead of his firing. The way Cubs president Theo Epstein was gushing about Jaramillo, you had to remind yourself what was really going on.

Schuster: Konerko Has One Hell Of A Black Eye

Just 24 hours after taking a 90 miles per hour pitch to the face, Paul Konerko talked about how he was doing, “I feel good but obviously I have a black eye and it’s really swollen, said the Sox 1st baseman. “It’s just a matter of getting the swelling down but fortunately there was no fractures or any other damage”.

Schuster: Why, Oh Why, Was Rose In The Game?

As I sit here at the Bulls practice facility I can’t help but think back to the aftermath of yesterday’s playoff game vs. Philadelphia.

Schuster: Same Old, Same Old For The Cubs

Well so far the new Cubs regime looks a lot like the old one. More losses, and ugly ones at that. Yes, it’s only two games into a long season but it’s awfully deflating when the two losses have come the way they have, so far.

Schuster: So Much For That Streak

Not since early February of 2011 had the Bulls lost two in a row. It was a streak that spanned 86 games but it’s a streak that’s now over. With Monday night’s 99-93 defeat to Houston the Bulls have lost back to back games under Tom Thibodeau for only the 5th time in his tenure.

Schuster: Rose Speaks Out On Officiating

Derrick Rose is usually cool, calm and collected on the court but Monday night he was getting more and more agitated. With each and every non call by the officials you could see Rose’s anger rising. And finally in the 3rd quarter he uncharacteristically started mouthing off. But that was nothing compared to after the game.

Schuster: Rose’s Buzzer-Beater Pushes Streak To 8

Bulls broadcaster, Stacey King calls Derrick Rose the “Windy City Assassin” and he was right on target last night here in Milwaukee. With the game tied at 104, Rose had the ball in his hands with the clock running out. You knew he was going to shoot the ball you just weren’t sure how he was going to do it. Well apparently neither did the Bucks who failed to double team the reigning MVP who let the clock run down to almost zero before he delivered the dagger, a 20 foot fade away jumper that won the game

Schuster: Hamilton Will Be Out ‘Awhile’

If you think you’re frustrated with Richard Hamilton being so injured this season, you should know it’s nothing compared to his frustration.
