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 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.

Baffoe: The Scary Smart Of Richard Sherman

Sherman’s intelligence frightens people. The one thing we’ve traditionally had over athletes is that, despite their talent and money and celebrity, we would always be allowed to feel smarter than them.

Baffoe: So You’re Angry About The Cubs Mascot

The anger over the new Cubs mascot is a waste of time.

Baffoe: RIP The Cutler Contract Debate

To now continue to rail against Cutler is howling at the moon, tilting at windmills, typing in metaphors.

Baffoe: Let’s Mock People Blaming Jay Cutler

Baffoe: How Not To Make A Baseball Hall Of Fame Voting Argument

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.

Baffoe: Who’s Been Naughty And Nice In Chicago Sports This Year?

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).

Baffoe: Trestman May Be Forced To Gamble Sunday

Bears fans have come to know their first-year coach is one who is willing to take risks.

Baffoe: You’re Going To Hate-Watch Jay Cutler On Sunday

The absolute undeniable fact that Cutler is the better quarterback and athlete than McCown is one thing, but you need to feel good, dontcha?

Baffoe: Great Moments In Ditka History

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

Baffoe: A Heisman Snub Won’t Define Lynch

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.

Baffoe: Let’s Mock Stupid Reactions To Derrick Rose’s Injury

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.

Baffoe: Marc Trestman Is The Anti-Coach

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.
