Tim Baffoe attended the University of Iowa before earning his degree from Governors State University and began blogging at The Score after winning the 2011 Pepsi Max Score Search. He enjoys writing things about stuff, but not so much stuff about things. When not writing for 670TheScore.com, Tim corrupts America’s youth as a high school English teacher and provides a great service to his South Side community delivering pizzas (please tip him and his colleagues well). You can follow Tim’s inappropriate brain droppings on Twitter (@TimBaffoe), but please don’t follow him in real life. He grew up in Chicago’s Beverly neighborhood and currently lives in Mt. Greenwood.
Here’s to a smarter 2014.
Jay Cutler could cure cancer and would still not win people over because of his lack of warmth and fuzziness.
Here is what so many voters like Simmons fail to understand. The Hall of Fame is a museum, and voters are being asked to choose what players get highlighted in that museum. Museums are supposed to represent—accurately—history.
Ho, ho, ho! Baffoe Claus here. I’m way better than Ditka Claus because I don’t smell like cigars, I haven’t been compromised by endorsement commitments (yet), and children are genuinely happy when I show up to their homes bearing gifts (pizza is the greatest gift of all; wine for children, not so much).
Bears fans have come to know their first-year coach is one who is willing to take risks.
When you see one of these great hustle plays from now on just know what you’re clapping it up for.
The absolute undeniable fact that Cutler is the better quarterback and athlete than McCown is one thing, but you need to feel good, dontcha?
While a lot of focus was on some more popular clips of Ditka the player and Ditka the coach, I feel much of the true Ditka was not highlighted enough Monday
That trophy doesn’t change Lynch’s fantastic stats or his team’s accomplishments, the latter of which I’m fairly confident hold more importance to a guy like Lynch.
Unfortunately, this son of the South Side also rises.
Derrick Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the 2013-2014 season. It’s unfortunate and sucky and awful and disappointing and frustrating and gut-punching.
Such candidness and volume of response is not supposed to happen from an NFL coach.
Take this as a reminding sign next to your proverbial teleprompter, if you will, and save yourself the risk of some very big headaches and maybe even an epiphany in the future. You’ll thank me.
Ditka is binary, obtuse and a caricature.
I’d be a hypocrite if I called for Incognito to be denied work in a trade that he has skill for.
And why doesn’t Richie Incognito like himself? Why is he obviously such a screwed up individual?
Tim Baffoe did some crowdsourcing to get an idea of exactly what Cutler is dealing with.
The glass is half full today, Bulls fans.
It’s inevitably going to happen. One of these days a player is going to die because of an illegal hit.
So come along and let’s point and laugh at some of these precious souls who actually verbalized their assumptions or desires for the Chicago Bears to sign either Brett Favre or Tim Tebow.
