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.
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

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.

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.
Being a sports fan is illogical. But then there is the really illogical of sports illogical.
That time that the worst sporting experience of your life made you a better sports fan.
Thursday night Robbie Gould tied the NFL record held by Minnesota Viking Blair Walsh for most consecutive makes from 50+.
Ask me why I keep watching, and I’ll tell you I enjoy it despite very much knowing and accepting the brutal negatives. And I’m not ready to walk away yet.
In order to last 29 years in the booth like Hawk has, you have to be doing something right.
Championships in Chicago are few and far between.
