Ten Foot Mailbag

Ten Foot Mailbag: Oh No, There’s A Packers Fan Reality ShowFirst, the show will be awful, even by reality TV standards.
Ten Foot Mailbag: Does Food Poisoning Diminish Jordan’s Flu Game?If it’s even true it’s not less impressive because—and I can only speak from what others have told me—food poisoning is one of the worst non-life-threatening non-Nicholas Cage movie things one can experience.
Ten Foot Mailbag: Talking To Kids About Boston And Apologizing To PSU FansIt was a really, really, really, really, really, really bad week to say the least. Chicagoans should count themselves lucky that it was mostly just our commutes and basements that were ruined.
Ten Foot Mailbag: Paying College Athletes And Shortening The MLB SeasonOne of my favorite things to ever happen in sports is occurring this weekend.
Ten Foot Mailbag: Cubs & White Sox 2013 RecordsOne good thing about the Cubs being likely bad in 2013 is that nobody can chalk it up to a goat.
Ten Foot Mailbag: Bears Moves And Spring Baseball BroadcastsOf course there’s no way to be sure on any signing or trade or draft pick until after there has been actual significant game play, but as of right now I like the Phil Emery moves.
Ten Foot Mailbag: Booing Former Players And Learning HockeyBooing a guy who used to be on your favorite team and now is on another team is beyond stupid.
Ten Foot Mailbag: Dealing With Rec League CheatersO.J. Pistorius. That’s what I’ve begun calling the South African runner accused of murdering his girlfriend (and I don’t want to place value on one murder victim over another, but holy Mandela, that woman was gorgeous).
Ten Foot Mailbag: Jordan’s Birthday And An Emailing BigotJust one email this week, actually. This person was so moved by a sports column that he felt compelled to type all this and click send.
Ten Foot Mailbag: Who Wins A Chicago Championship Next And Jersey EtiquetteI was very impressed with the way the Chicago Blackhawks handled themselves Thursday night in their first meeting with Raffi Torres since Torres injured Marian Hossa on an illegal hit last year.
Ten Foot Mailbag: The Te’o Story Brings Out The Worst In PeopleI very much believe Te’o has lied about much of this, and I feel it’s probable that within this whole odd trip we’re all on that the former Notre Dame linebacker is out for some personal gain from all this and that his sob story is not something to buy into fully.
Ten Foot Mailbag: Bears Future Coach And Immature AthletesHappy New Year. Let’s be honest—2012 really sucked for Chicago sports. Outside of college football, with the either loved or hated Notre Dame, Northwestern being above average in a bad B1G conference, and the 14 people that were Northern Illinois football fans before the season started, rooting for teams here was very banana-esque.
