Shepkowski: Gimmick Keeps Maddux From Being Unanimous

Shepkowski: Catch-22 For Cubs First Round Pick

With baseball’s 49th annual first-year player draft beginning on Thursday night and the Cubs picking second overall, much hope on the North Side has gone to the Cubs drafting their future ace.

Shepkowski: Boozer Goes Bust Again

As I sit and type this out it feels like I’m back in the fall dissecting numbers to quantify Jay Cutler putting up a clunker of a performance in an important game. Except it’s not fall and the game isn’t being played outdoors.

Shepkowski: LeBron Tired of Hard Fouls

Ask two different locker rooms about the abuse and hard fouls the soon-to-be four time NBA MVP received on Wednesday night and you were bound to get two different responses.

Listen: The ‘D’ Is Old

It’s Day 4 of The McNeil and Spiegel Show’s run of Bears themed Christmas Carols and today Nick Shepkowski got away from whatever research project he was doing and sang about Lovie Smith’s ever-aging defense.

Jay Cutler

Shepkowski: Bears, Cutler Must Get Home Field Advantage

Jay Cutler has never beaten a team that finished the season above .500 on the road while wearing a Chicago Bears uniform.

It was by no means a thing of beauty, but likely nothing about the 2012-13 campaign will be for the Bulls.
