Tim Baffoe

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.

Ten Foot Mailbag: Urlacher Rooting Against The Bears & Paterno’s Legacy

Remember when some people were so worried that former Chicago Bear Brian Urlacher would sign with the Minnesota Vikings, not because he would improve a division rival (he wouldn’t have) but that it would perceivably taint his legacy?

Baffoe: Bud Selig’s Brain Cloud

By Tim Baffoe- (CBS) I’ve long contended that one of America’s most heinous shortcomings is the underappreciation of the film Joe Versus The Volcano. Since you’re probably not privy, the film is about a guy played [...]

Baffoe: Grading The Cubs And White Sox At The Break

I get paid to grade things, even though I tell students that they earn grades rather than get them subjectively.

Baffoe: Where Is The Way To Wisdom In DePaul’s New Basketball Arena?

For the sake of a staggering basketball program and lining some already stuffed pockets, the end game is many people—kids mostly—not being shown the way to wisdom.

Baffoe: Now We’re Stuck With Chicago Baseball

All we have of actual substance for the next couple months is baseball. Cold, cruel Chicago baseball.

Baffoe: Let’s Mock People Attracted To Aaron Hernandez

For being a detriment to every female who has worked so hard to break down stereotypes in the sports world, these folks deserve a public shaming. So come along as we put the microscope on some seriously misguided people whose parents have failed hard.

Ten Foot Mailbag: Idiots Come Out For Blackhawks Celebration

They break windows and throw bottles in the street and really stick it to The Man when they think The Man (who likely hasn’t oppressed them, as these twenty-somethings are mostly suburban-raised fortunates thinking they’re cool by slumming it in the city for street cred) isn’t looking.

Baffoe: Seventeen Seconds – A Measure Of A Champion

Those seventeen seconds birthed a champion from the jaws of sure defeat. They made hockey just the coolest damn thing in the world, if only for a short period of time to the rest of the country and the world, but a hell of a lot longer in the Windy City.

Baffoe: Your Rape Joke Isn’t Funny

ALS jokes. Victim blaming. Rape and sports comparisons. It’s been some week. And it’s only Hump Day.

Baffoe: Should The Blackhawks Ditch Their Indian Head Logo?

“Commit to the Indian” isn’t just an order by a coach or a phrase to be mocked on sports radio. It’s something that might warrant a deeper consideration.

Ten Foot Mailbag: The Best Thing About Being A Chicago Sports Fan

Chicago has dealt with enough awfulness that I feel we have more fans in this town that “get it;” “it” being, yeah, losing sucks, but I don’t have to look at this as just a black and white, did they win or did they lose issue.

“He’s not a perfect player. We like the fit. We like what he brings to us intangibly. We wanted to get better up front. He’s a seasoned player.”

Baffoe: Writer Who Thinks Math Is Bad For Baseball Is Not Your Friend

This is not difficult to understand. Nobody is taking away your precious baseball and replacing it with nine calculators. Teams are improving their chances of winning. Math doesn’t hit, throw, or catch the ball and never will.-
