Baffoe: Please, Don’t Forget Last Week

Don’t let what’s uncomfortable simply be a disposable thought. Think about what’s important.

Ten Foot Mailbag: Does A Cutler Contract Hinge On The Playoffs?

Ten Foot Mailbag: Hawk Saying ‘We’ And People Saying The N-Word

Hawk says “we” all the time, and it makes me furrow my brow ever so slightly and even a bit more when Steve Stone does it because Stone plays the more refined straight guy in that comedy team.

Ten Foot Mailbag: Do The Bears Respect Marc Trestman?

As far as Trestman goes, I have a really hard time believing all the players—veterans especially—are going to be so gung-ho with his make-a-new-friend-today tactics as he described at a press conference on Wednesday.

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?

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.

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.
